By Benjamin Darling, most of Shakespeare's plays involve fairies or magic, or both. Perhaps his most popular play, A Midsummer Night's Dream, brings fairies and the charming consequences of their magic to vivid life. And who can forget the famous incantation, Double, double toil and trouble from another favorite, Macbeth, which, epitomizes the magic spell for many. Shakespeare on fairies and Magic pairs the most memorable quotations from the bard with best of the illustrations and painting that have illuminated his works. The combination of brilliant word and inspired, unfettered imagery work perfectly together to evoke the supernatural world in an easy to read format; Titania is regal and beautiful, the tree witches are terrifying hags, and Puck, as always, brings a wry smile to the face.
