A Midsummer Night's Dream (Collector's Edition), Hardback Book

A Midsummer Night's Dream (Collector's Edition) Hardback

Part of the Wordsworth Collector's Editions series

Hardback

Description

Its lyricism, comedy (both broad and subtle) and magical transformations have long made A Midsummer Night's Dream one of the most popular of Shakespeare's works.

The supernatural and the mundane, the illusory and the substantial, are all shimmeringly blended.

Love is treated as tragic, poignant, absurd and farcical. 'Lord, what fools these mortals be!', jeers Robin Goodfellow; but the joke may be on him and on his master Oberon when Bottom the weaver, his head transformed into that of an ass, is embraced by the voluptuously amorous Titania.

Recent stage-productions of A Midsummer Night's Dream have emphasised the enchanting, spectacular, ambiguous and erotically joyous aspects of this magical drama which culminates in a multiple celebration of marriage.
