Hi —

The idea behind this site –which was started and finished in the aughts– was to get to know Shakespeare’s works better through concentrating on one aspect of his work (chosen pretty much randomly) — plants. Now it is some years later, and I think of it as mainly an interesting object for the internet.

Is this a thorough-going list of Shakespeare’s plants? Although I tried to do a good job with this, I can’t make any claims, and there are bound to be significant omissions. If you know of something I’ve missed, do feel free to write.

In the way of discoveries, the most notable thing I came across pertained not to Shakespeare but to Homer (who at an earlier date figured prominently here). I noticed some unusual correspondences between passages in The Iliad that mentioned the tamarisk, and you can read about that here.

Thanks so much–
