Jackie Bennett: Shakespeare’s Gardens. Shakespeare Birthplace Trust Talk
A talk accompanying an informative and well-illustrated book about the gardens that William Shakespeare knew as a boy and tended as a man, and the plants that Shakespeare knew and wrote about in 17th century England. As Bennett says, more than four centuries after Shakespeare lived, whenever we think of thyme, violets or roses, we more often than not still remember a quote from one of his 39 plays and 154 sonnets.
