Shakespeare's Feathered Friends

Record #:
In a unique approach to an article on birds, Lee takes a look at Shakespeare's plays and how he used birds \"to enhance his thoughts regarding superstition, tradition, the human spirit, and the beauty of nature.\" His use of birds far exceeded any of his contemporaries, either playwrights or authors. There are sixty-four kinds of birds mentioned in his combined works and they appear over six hundred times. About fifty of the birds are known to people living in the Eastern US.
