Shakespeare encountered varying descriptions of nature in the Classical and Biblical texts he read at grammar school, the folk traditions of his childhood, the urban worlds of plant medicine, and the 'green thoughts' of court poets. This course spans two decades of Shakespeare's plays, examining his thinking on woods, plants, almanacs, medicines, gardens, and fairies.
