  2. Re reading the play this time, I couldn t stop thinking of of The Magic Flute Like Mozart s opera, Shakespeare s play may have a silly plot composed of fanciful, seemingly arbitrary elements, yet, through the power of absolute artistic mastery, the framework of what might otherwise be nothing but a second rate masque is transformed, by unwearied attention of geniu and in Shakespeare s case, sublime poetry into a work of great resonance, an archetypal myth.

  3. Book Review4 out of 5 stars to A Midsummer Night s Dream, a comedy written in 1595 by William Shakespeare What a fun read I first read this in high school and then again in college as part of a course on Shakespeare Then I watched a few movie versions It s full of so much humor and creativity The plot is essentially the impacts of magic, as some fairy dust causes everyone to fall in love with the first person they see once the dust falls on them Imagine the hilarity that ensues in a chain reacti [...]

  5. Man, being reasonable, must get drunk The best of life is but intoxication Glory, the grape, love, gold, in these are sunkThe hopes of all men and of every nation Without their sap, how branchless were the trunkOf life s strange tree, so fruitful on occasion But to return, Get very drunk and whenYou wake with headache, you shall see what then Lord Byron, Don Juan, Canto II, Stanza 179.If we offend, it is with our good will.That you should think, we come not to offend,But with good will To show o [...]

  6. mini review, as I do for classics this was my first time reading Shakespeare on my own, and I kind ofw that as a negative I like discussing Shakespeare in a classroom setting, and being motivated to mark up the text and otherwise process it fully I felt like I missed out on stuff hereso, this play felt so short maybe it s my edition s fault, for being 111 pages maybe it s how abrupt the ending was which is very or how flat the characters were, or how there were a sh t ton of them long story shor [...]

  7. 3 1 2 stars3 3 4Upped the rating when I realized that I d given 3 1 2 to King John, Pericles, and The Taming of the ShrewHere I ve decided to add some comments about this project, finding myself about 30 months into it I ve read 10 of the plays so far, so I m on schedule all but one The Tempest reviewed I trust I ll get to that one soon The plan outlined below has been altered some, which can be seen by taking a look at some of my recent reviews I ve tried to just go where I please instead of b [...]

  9. Find all of my reviews at 52bookminimum I m sure there s some keyboard commando all primed and ready just waiting for a chance to chime in about how this isn t Facebook or talk about books and don t post stupid pictures To him her them I shall quote ol Bill himself and say Fucketh off with thee Because I have read A Midsummer Night s Dream and I ve read it than once Originally I read it back in the stone age as a high schooler who opted for additional literature classes as electives rather than [...]

  10. It s still as awesome as I remember Though, unfortunately, causes me some initial irritation with The Iron King.Robbie Goodfellow is a wicked spirit running around having fun and pulling ridiculous pranks He s not a serious teenage boy who is dramatic and suspenseful or mysterious or sexy.Why do we have to turn everything into sexy these days Why does every male character have to suddenly fit the romantic male archetype Why are mythological creatures becoming obsessed with teenage girls

  11. The course of true love never did run smooth is a famous, often quoted line a truism throughout all ages and cultures Where does it come from It is spoken by a character called Lysander, in Shakespeare s play A Midsummer Night s Dream, and articulates possibly the play s most important theme.A Midsummer Night s Dream is a fanciful tale, full of poetry and beautiful imagery, such as, I know a bank where the wild thyme blows,Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows,Quite over canopied with luscio [...]

  12. if i had a professor who actually talked about this and made it interesting then im sure i wouldve liked it but i was just like

  13. Ein Sommernachtstraum is one of the top references as a classic In the beginning, it is difficult to get there, but once you get used to the style, it is quite an entertaining, beautiful and confused story about the back and forth of the love affair A must for interested in Shakespear and theater.

  14. El enredo de los enredos, porque tener un tri ngulo amoroso, si puedes tener un cuadrado Un cuarteto Un rombo Mmm algo se me ocurrir Es cierto lo que dicen sobre la obras de Shakespeare, son atemporales, as aun teniendo m s de 400 a os aprecie esta historia e incluso me saco unas cuantas risas, imaginen todos los personajes corriendo por el bosque declarando su amor eterno, y ni siquiera la hermosa reina de las hadas se ha salvado, y para escenificar lo que el mismo Shakespeare dijo Pero el amor [...]

  15. The moon methinks looks with a wat ry eye And when she weeps, weeps every little flower Titania Tomorrow night, when Phoebe doth beholdHer silver visage in the watery glass,Decking with liquid pearl the bladed grass.So quick bright things come to confusion Lysander Night and the ocean are the depthless things of the earth, where bright things come to confusion, become undistinguishable, Like far off mountains turned to clouds The unconscious, the sleep world, the dream world Everywhere throughou [...]

  16. Aww, this is a cute little play.Which is a pretty condescending thing to say about a work of Shakespeare, right Except it s true A Midsummer Night s Dream is an aDORable piece of literature with elves and fairies and potions and magic not something I typically go for, and a definite far cry from his serious tragedies In this play, a woman suffers whose love for her man lies in contrast to her father s wishes, he having already promised his daughter s hand to another, and if she refuses to go al [...]

  17. What a wonderful yet messed up play this was, thoroughly enjoyed it Absolutely loved the setting, the language and the element of fantasy within the story It was comical yet still had potential to be a tale of tragedy and I think that s why I enjoyed it so much It keeps you on your toes and the story goes round in circles but it reached a satisfactory resolution For me, Shakespeare is a bit hit or miss but I really did enjoy this one

  18. An entertaining and amusing tale, filled with an inexhaustible richness of symbolicism, atmosphere and verbal complexity After having seen Shakespeare as a writer of tragic and twisted stories dealing with death and schemes as major leitmotifs for many years, a light hearted story like A Midsummer Night s Dream proved to be exactly the right one to convince me of the direct opposite that Shakespeare can also masterfully create romantic comedies full of amusing allusions.

  19. 3.5 starsSometimes, I feel that I just do not get Shakespeare This particular explanation, for its face value, is neutral in its tone and execution, for this play is so absurd, but it almost seems like it is trying to be as such While Shakespeare has been known to borrow his plots, I would say that his tragedies are better than his comedies in the way that the elements to his tragedies are a bit original or is it the fact that we have seen elements of his comedies time and time again In a way, [...]

  20. Oh, I loved this so much It s charming and fun and hilarious and silly but it has a lot of heart it s not just an empty comedy There s wit and some really great observations on flights of fancy and the ridiculous things humans will do with or without the help of forest nymphs in the name of love Also, an enchanted forest has got to be one of my favourite settings of all time, the heady summer air and a sense of magic really seeped through the pages.Two of my favourite quotes, both by Robin Goodf [...]

  21. Yey The very first Shakespeare that I read from cover to cover Sneer if you have to but I graduated from a low standard high school in a small island in the Pacific The only dramatization that we did was Leon Ma Guerrero s My Brother Leon Brought Home a Wife I played the lead role of Leon, the young farmer, though In college, I took up a paramedical course in the city and we had World Lit but we only read mimeographed copies of Shakespeare sonnets I still remember the term iambic pentamer but do [...]

  22. My high school English teacher called this the perfect play He meant that in terms of it being performed He would use it with new groups of drama students, because there was absolutely no possible way for them to screw it up And now, close on 10 years later, I can t yet prove him wrong I ve been in this play twice Hermia , I ve seen it performed countless times by good groups of actors, mediocre ones, and one cast that was mostly pretty bad, I ve seen it done in traditional Shakespearean costume [...]

  23. While it is generally true that plays should be seen and not just read, this is even true of Midsummer Night s Dream It is a popular play to be performed and I have seen it several times but struggled with the reading Still, it is a brilliant work by Shakespeare, and very entertaining Like so many of his works, this one has been very influential on so many romantic comedies that have come since Shakespeare may have tried to recreate or even improve on the fairie ideal with Ariel from The Tempes [...]

  24. My favorite Shakespeare I ve been in it and I see it whenever I have the chance.I forced it on 4th, 5th, and 6th graders last year At first they were terribly confused by Shakespearean language but ultimately, they loved it During Bottom s soliloquy in the play within a play, after a half page of ridiculous, melodrama and general wordiness, I asked the kids what he was trying to say, and one correctly deduced, It s night It s night It s night That s a wall It s a wall It s a wall My other favori [...]
