Did Shakespeare Mention
Crop Circles?
From Matt

Dear Jeff,
I'm currently directing Shakespeare's 'The Tempest', and one of Prospero's lines struck me to the quick, as it were.
Listen to this: Act 5, Scene 1:
Prospero draws his magic circle and addresses his speech to his spirits and power. He says, "You demi-puppets that/By moonshine do the green sour ringlets make/Whereof the ewe not bites."
All my research r.e. this line concludes that 'fairies' (intersting that he uses the term demi-puppets) used to dance around green grassy places, and flatten the grass into little circles. The sheep and cattle were terrified to graze upon this grass. Interesting?
