Shakespeare and the Tube

This is a really clever map, designed by Kit Grover and Dr. Hester Lees-Jeffries for the Royal Shakespeare Company. It depicts the characters from Shakespeare's plays, and their relationships to one another.

As described by the RSC:

"The lines include: lovers (red), mothers (pink), fathers and daughters (green), villains (light blue), heroes (dark blue), strong and difficult women (turquoise), warriors (black) and fools (orange). Interesting intersections include Henry V who meets on the warrior and hero line, and Lady Macbeth on the strong and difficult women and warrior line. "

Really clever and original!
