Browsing Through ‘Botanical Curses and Poisons – The Shadow Lives of Plants’

Poisonings are the most remembered form of death throughout history, from the Roman Empire to the Medieval era and beyond. Poisoning is a concealed and very deliberate crime that takes a fair amount of planning and yet there is a very fine line between healing and poisoning – Paracelsus argued that only the dosage matters!

Botanical Curses and Poisons – The Shadow Lives of Plants

Available from February 2021, Fez Inkwright’s ‘Botanical Curses and Poisons’ focuses on the folklore and historical archives to uncover the historical and fascinating, untold stories behind deadly plants, witching herbs, and fungi.

Liminal 11 very kindly sent me an early copy of Fez Inkwright’s book-  ‘Botanical Curses and Poisons’ to read, rate and review, and having flicked through the book, I can tell you that I’m particularly fond of Fez’s references to Lewis Carrol’s ‘Alice in Wonderland’ as it was a firm favourite film and one of my favourite reads as a child.

I would have read more however, my husband was rather quick to the mark in ‘borrowing’ or should I say ‘claiming’ my copy of this beautiful book. He has since spent the majority of his evenings with his nose firmly buried between the pages of this beautiful book and he regularly informs me of how engaging, interesting and informative this book is.
