A Midsummer Night's Dream
Share this product:
The wordsworth classics‚ao shakespeare series, with¬†romeo and juliet,¬†henry v¬†and¬†the merchant of venice¬†as its inaugural volumes, presents a newly-edited sequence of william shakespeare‚aos works. The textual editing takes account of recent scholarship while giving the material a careful reappraisal. Its lyricism, comedy (both broad and subtle) and magical transformations have long made¬†a midsummer night‚aos dream¬†one of the most popular of shakespeare‚aos works. The supernatural and the mundane, the illusory and the substantial, are all shimmeringly blended. Love is treated as tragic, poignant, absurd and farcical. ‚aolord, what fools these mortals be!‚ao, 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‚aos dream¬†have emphasised the enchanting, spectacular, ambiguous and erotically joyous aspects of this magical drama which culminates in a multiple celebration of marriage.
