Shakespeare on Fairies and Magicby Benjamin Darling, Benjamin Darling
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 time to the present - are hugely influenced by the Bard's plays and poetry. Myriad illustrators have depicted Shakesperean fairies, and we here present som of our favorites with quotations from his plays. Included are such luminary artists and illustrators as John Everett Milais, Arthur Rackham and Joshua Reynolds. Among the plays illustrated are Macbeth. The Tempest and, of course, A Midsummer Night's Dream. This book was originally distributed by Prentice Hall Press.
