Description

Shakespeare wrote this romantic comedy to show that "love hath no law but his own." The story of young lovers being toyed with by forest sprites is purely an entertaining fantasy, neither realistic nor tragic, and a popular drama the world over. This concise supplement to Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream helps students understand the overall structure of the play, actions and motivations of the characters, and the social and cultural perspectives of the author.
