Ballads and Performance: The Multimodal Stage in Early Modern England

"The True Form and Shape of Caliban: Monstrosity and Wonder in 'The Tempest'"

Jeffrey Kahan, “Ambroise Paré’s Des Monstres as a Possible Source for Caliban,” Early Modern Literary Studies 3, no. 1 (1997): 109. The illustration from Conrad Gesner’s Icones Animalium (1560) became known as the “Seabishop picture” and was reprinted in Ambroise Paré’s Des Monstres et Prodiges (1573), which, Kahan argues, Shakespeare may have consulted (Kahan 1).
