Description

A Midsummer Night's Dream's complexities are extraordinary. This ethereal fantasy involves four different levels of representation, which intermingle but never wholly fuse. This invaluable new study guide to one of Shakespeare's greatest plays contains a selection of the best criticism through the centuries about the play. Students will benefit from the abundant features included in this volume, such as an introduction by Harold Bloom, an accessible summary, analysis of key passages, and more.
