The first in the Shakespeare's Paragon series.
Friends, Romans, countrymen: this is not your average book of quotations by Shakespeare.
Wherefore? Here you will find no comparisons to summers days, or advice to be true to oneself. Ladies will not protest too much, or demand the departure of damned spots. We are quite content with our winter, thank you very much, and our kingdom has plenty of horses. The stage of this brave new world has no men or women, rose-scented or otherwise, to bid goodnight to each other until the ides of March, or at least 'til it be morrow.
So what kind of book can this be? That is the question.
Shakespeare's brilliance shines through, not just in his most famous lines, but in every line. The tiniest snippet of his work contains fantastic wordplay and depth of imagery. This book takes some of his less-known bits about various animals and pairs them with Laudea Martin's unique illustrations assembled from textured layers.
