A Midsummer Night's DreamA Midsummer Night's DreamOur price: £5.99View A Midsummer Night’s Dream was written by William Shakespeare in theyear 1594 or 1595. It is one of a group of his early plays in which thenature of love is the central theme.The play combines four different stories in which love plays a large role:the story of the mature and stable love of Theseus and Hippolyta whoare to be married; the story of the four young lovers, Lysander andHermia, Demetrius and Helena, and their hectic journey from physicalpassion to true love; the story involving the fairies and the fickleness ofthe love shared by Oberon, King of the Fairies and Titania, Queen of theFairies; and the story of Bottom and his clowns and their play within aplay Pyramus and Thisbe. The idea that things are not necessarily whatthey seem to be is also at the heart of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and inthe very title itself.The main comic interest in the play lies partly in the series of humoroussituations which grow out of the use of a magic flower by Oberon andPuck, and partly in the absurd attempts of Bottom and his companionsto prepare their play and present it before Theseus.
