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.

    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.

    For you in my respect are all the world:
    Then how can it be said I am alone,
    When all the world is here to look on me?

    Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind;
    And therefore is wing'd Cupid painted blind:
