Book Description:

The lily is a flower of contradictions. It represents both life and death, appearing at weddings and funerals. In their pure white form, lilies are a symbol of innocence, chastity and purity of heart, but, in contrast, the highly fragrant and intensely coloured orange lilies symbolize passion. In Lily Marcia Reiss explores these paradoxes, tracing the flower's cultural significance in art, literature, religion and popular culture throughout history.
