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.
Jesus? Who was He? And why do people still talk about Him after 2000 years? For many of us, we know of Jesus because of the movies that come out around Christmas and Easter time. We know about His birth - ya know, something about being born in a manger wearing 'waddled-up' clothes. Then, there's a little something about some wise men giving Him some cool gifts that included gold and some other stuff that we really don't know what it was. Maybe it was some off-brand cologne? And then after Jesus grows up to be a man, we know that a bunch of folks didn't like Him and decide to have Him hung on a cross. And then He dies and heads up to Heaven. The end, right? Wrong. Everything we need to know about Jesus is found in the Gospels - Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. These books of the Bible tell us about His birth and why it was so awesome. It tells us of why He came to Earth and what His mission statement was for all of humanity. It also tells us why we should follow Him and the benefits for doing it. It's a serious deal! In this book, we explain the Gospels from all four sides - Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Just like all of our other stuff in A Redneck's Guide series, we keep it simple. We hope you are blessed by reading it!
