Shakespeare Finds Love on a Midsummer NightThe forest outside Athens is filled with changelings magic and ancient myth in other words the stage is set The night is silent and still as four mortals alternately hate and love monarchs of the faerie world clash wills and the mischief of one irrepressible woodland sprite weaves a spell over all The breath of the darkness is lit with the glow of foxfire hearts are broken and mended within the span of short hours In the bower of the Faerie Queen a man transformed by magic slumbers peacefully The pen of William Shakespeare has captured the imagination and hearts of audiences and readers alike across the world and through the decades but his classic romantic comedy A Midsummer Nights Dream offers something much more profound Shakespeare has found insight into the heart and through his verse best exemplifies the complicated and capricious emotions found there The play much like reality is sprinkled throughout with gems of humor and it will continue to fascinate as long as there is love Shakespeares characters are certainly the most important part of A Midsummer Nights Dream All action must be carried out through them all ideas must be transported to the audience through their moves and dialogue The first and most obvious characters are the four mortal lovers The women Helena and Hermia are respectively tall and fair short and dark there are no other notable differences between them The men Lysander and Demetrius have no differences in personality that are remarked upon in the text of the play Outside the walls of Athens inside the enchanted forest the courts of Oberon king of the faeries and Titania his queen hold sway The two magistrates quarrel often but know they are meant for each other no matter how they scowl Their adventures include Bottom a town actor turned into an ass by Oberon to seek revenge on Titania The last major role
