William Shakespeare

A Midsummer Night's Dream

A Midsummer Night's Dream is a romantic comedy by William Shakespeare, suggested by "The Knight's Tale" from Geoffrey Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales, written around 1594 to 1596. It portrays the adventures of four young Athenian lovers and a group of amateur actors, their interactions with the Duke and Duchess of Athens, Theseus and Hippolyta, and with the fairies who inhabit a moonlit forest. The play is one of Shakespeare's most popular works for the stage and is widely performed across the world.

    👍Worth reading

    I don't like reading Shakespeare in particular first and would not choose to watch it live.
    But some of the comments on Midsummer Night's Dream are so distinguished that it is laughable.
    Some reviews are written in such a terrible English that it is uncommon for them not to comprehend the play.

Quotes

    Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind;
    And therefore is wing'd Cupid painted blind:
    Patrizia Cortesehas quoted3 months ago
    I pray thee, gentle mortal, sing again:
    Mine ear is much enamour'd of thy note;
    So is mine eye enthralled to thy shape;
    And thy fair virtue's force perforce doth move me
    On the first view to say, to swear, I love thee.

    the moon, like to a silver bow
    New-bent in heaven, shall behold the night
    Of our solemnities.
