All faunal forms inhabiting the speeches of Shakespeare's human characters are shown. References to monsters and undefined creatures and beasts are marked with offcuts. The red dots represent devils. Based (structurally) on a 1968 verson of the play edited by Kenneth Muir and published by Penguin Books."--Verso of front cover.
