The Primrose Path

Primula L.

Never one to discard a good metaphor, Shakespeare used "primrose path" again in his play "Macbeth," but this time to mean "a course of action that seems easy, but ends in disaster." This sense is still often heard in accounts of a deluded person who was "led down the primrose path" to perdition and ruin by an unscrupulous leader, friend, or, lately, stockbroker.
