William Shakespeare was famous for many phrases that we still use today; these are not those phrases. Included in this book are the often overlooked snippets that refer to animals of all kinds-some in general terms, and some very specific. Some even reflect common misunderstandings about the natural world that were prevalent at the time.
The context of each of these lines is missing, and it doesn't matter. The animals in question may even have been referred to metaphorically in the original work. Here, each page is a work of art, made up of words and textures (some familiar, some not so familiar) representing some of the animals mentioned by Shakespeare.
This volume, Shakespeare's Menagerie, includes: raven, butterfly, horse, frog, mole, fly, ape, swan, barnacle, snail, tiger, mouse, beetle, wren, sheep, whale, adder, eagle, elephant, chameleon, and stag.
