"Titania" Geoff Holt, pencil drawing, 1975 (77.5cm X 52cm)

"Titania" may have been the preliminary drawing for "The Hunter"

Text: Midsummer Nights Dream by William Shakespeare

"I know a place whereon the wild thyme blows, Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows

Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine, With sweet musk-roses. and with eglantine,

There sleeps Titania some time of the night, Lull'd in these flowers with dances and delight"

(2 extra lines below, not included in the drawing)

"And where the snake throws her enamell'd skin, Weed wide enough to wrap a fairy in"
