Some flowers make us think of love or heaven, of political causes or drug cravings, while others are food, medicine, or decoration; almost every plant that humans have ever taken an interest in has acquired a rich web of associations. So it is not surprising that flowers as alluring as orchids are associated with a very specific set of images, ideas, and symbols. Yet the precise significances we attach to orchids may be, Jim Endersby argues, the weirdest ever to have become linked to a plant. By following orchids through history, Endersby discovers unexpected connections that lead us into myriad other histories. Everything from the European conquest of the Americas to Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution became intimately entangled with the story of the orchid. Whether it’s in films, novels, plays, or poems, orchids feature everywhere from Shakespeare to science fiction, from hard-boiled thrillers to elaborate modernist novels. Orchid: A Cultural History tells, for the first time, the full story of our fascination with orchids.
