Description

The aim of this encyclopedia is to survey the fauna and flora of England and America not from the viewpoint of zoological or botanical science but of literature. Given the excessive broadness of the endeavour, this is done in a personally selective manner, with preferences toward English over American, and poetry over prose. Two sources in particular take pride of place - the Authorized King James Version of the Bible, and Shakespeare.
