Black Butler – Book of Circus Trivia!
 
Did you know that all of Snake’s favorite serpentine reptiles are named after famous poets and playwrights?
 
One of his snakes is named after Oscar Wilde who was a famous Irish writer and poet best known for The Picture of Dorian Gray, and The Importance of Being Earnest.
 
Likewise, we have another snake named after the German writer Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. Goethe’s infamous plays about Faust have been the inspiration for many creative minds for years since. While Goethe’s Faust was inspired by a classic German legend, he helped to cement the story of Faust in a way that one who has made a deal with the devil could be considered to have made a Faustian bargain. That sounds a bit familiar, doesn’t it?

FUN Fact!


Did you know that during Victorian times, people commonly referred to London simply as “Town”?
Similar to the modern reference of New York City as “The Big Apple”, the term “Town” had become a popular nick name for London to English citizens throughout the Victorian Era. 
The social elite and wealthy would generally have a home in London “Town”, and another home outside of London, which would be their “Country” estate. Today when we think of the word country, when not referring to a nation, we think of more rural landscapes and communities. A “Country” home in this instance could be anywhere else in England including other major cities but not in London “Town” itself. 
This reference is something we see occur a lot in British literature, most familiarly found in Jane Austen novels when characters go to London ‘Town’ for the season. The season began when the new session of Parliament was implemented after the Christmas holidays, and concluded in mid-June. Then those who could afford the luxury left London in droves to their ‘Country’ estates to escape both the stifling heat and the rather unpleasant odors that accompanied a summer in London.
