Shakespeare on Fairies
Originally $18 Now $11.95! A rich variety of images of fairies and other magical beings inspired by Shakespeare, with relevant quotations from the Bard.
Shakespeare and his Elizabethan audiences were very interested in the supernatural: ghosts, fairies, and the various powers of magicians and enchanters. All ensuing views of fairies and fairyland, from Shakespeare's times to the present, are hugely influenced by the Bard's plays and poetry. Myriad illustrators have depicted Shakespearean fairies, and we here present some of our favorites with quotations from his plays. This book was originally distributed by Prentice Hall Press. Included are such luminary artists and illustrators such as John Everett Millais, Arthur Rackham and Joshua Reynolds. Among the plays illustrated are Macbeth, The Tempest and, of course, A Midsummer Night's Dream.
