The second in the Shakespeare's Paragon series, this volume continues where Shakespeare's Zoo left off, pairing the lesser-known words of the great William Shakespeare with Laudea Martin's incredible textured illustrations. Just as with a simple phrase, a line, or even part of a line in a poem or play, Shakespeare is able to convey the richness of a scene, so, too, can Laudea Martin capture the essence of an animal with her illustrations.
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.
