PLANTS

Hi —

I initially made this site, which is a listing of Shakespeare’s mentions of plants, with the idea of getting to know Shakespeare’s works better, and perhaps in the hopes of making a discovery of some sort. Now it is some years later and I think of it more as being an interesting object for the internet, which I hope those visiting here may find some amusement in or be otherwise pleased by.

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 more prominently here, as did Stendhal and Thoreau). I noticed some unusual correspondences between passages in The Iliad that mentioned the tamarisk, and you can read about that here.

Thanks so much–
