The Grace of Plants: Shakespeare & Botany

William Shakespeare refers to the ‘powerful grace’ of plants in Romeo and Juliet, and it is clear from his works that he was familiar with a wide range of botany: flowers, herbs, fruit and vegetables. Author Margaret Willes discusses Shakespeare’s references to plants, whilst in the beautiful surroundings of Oxford’s Botanic Garden and alongside exquisite hand-coloured illustrations from the Bodleian Library’s copy of John Gerard’s 1597 Herbal.
