Shakespeare lived when knowledge of plants and their uses was a given, but also at a time of unique interest in plants and gardens.His lifetime saw the beginning of scientific interest in plants, the first large-scale plant introductions from outside the country since Roman times, and the beginning of gardening as a leisure activity. Shakespeare's works show that he engaged with this new world to illuminate so many facets of his plays and poems. This dictionary offers a complete companion to Shakespeare's references to landscape, plants and gardens, including both formal and rural settings.It covers plants and flowers, gardening terms, and the activities that Shakespeare included within both cultivated and uncultivated landscapes as well as encompassing garden imagery in relation to politics, the state and personal lives. Each alphabetical entry offers an definition and overview of the term discussed in its historical context, followed by a guided tour of its use in Shakespeare's works and finally an extensive bibliography, including primary and secondary sources, books and articles.

Welchen Sinn hat die Lebensphase des Alters? Wo liegt das seelische Potenzial dieses oft verdrängten, wichtigen Wegstücks? In einer Zeit, wo alle jung und trendy sein wollen, stellt die erfahrene Psychoanalytikerin Helen M. Luke nicht nur die Frage nach der Bedeutung dieses besonderen Lebensabschnitts, sondern gibt anregende und überraschende Antworten. Ohne das Schwierige wie z.B. die Einsamkeit oder das Leiden auszuklammern, gelingt es ihr, den inneren Reichtum dieser herausfordernden oft von grossen Veränderungen geprägten Phase zu zeigen. Helen M. Luke’s Betrachtungen und Einsichten zum Alter gehören zum Feinsinnigsten und Besten, das sie je geschrieben hat. - Laurens van der Post
