A Midsummer Night's Dream is a comedy play that was written by William Shakespeare. It is believed to have been written between 1590 to 1596. It portrays the events surrounding the marriage of the Duke of Athens, Theseus, and the Queen of the Amazons, Hippolyta. These include the adventures of four young Athenian lovers and a group of amateur actors, who are manipulated by the fairies who inhabit the forest in which most of the play is set. The play is one of Shakespeare's most popular works for the stage and is widely performed across the world. (Wikipedia)

I mean, if you like Shakespeare's comedies then there is no doubt you will enjoy MSND. The characters and constant malapropisms make it funny so you may have to work your way into the style of the play before the jokes are blatant ( and even then it can be hard to tell; humoor changes with generations and time). Shakespeare is a very wordy author yet there is a wa to tell that the plays were- and are- quality. In the centuries when The Globe was renouned in England the play-goers were a tough crowd; the story had to be understandable AND entertaining. The audience was not always educated so Shakespeare and to make enough stage direction, action and subtext for the story to come through. We see that much of the monolougues and conversations could be summed up into a few sentences, yet often the entertainment and humor is provided by these sylolliques.

This book can be counted as a wonderfully helpful study companion to Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, but where it really shines is in giving me access to masterful language that needs updating for our modern ears.  I love seeing Shakespeare performed, and this book gives each section a freshness in translation, a royal British historical context delivered by an author who avoids dry textbook languages like a 16th Century plague, and makes the intended humor instantly recognizable.  As a study guide, it’s perfect.  As a way to truly delight in Shakespeare, this is what I want to read just before watching a film adaptation or heading to the theatre.

This is definetly worth reading. It is a true masterpiece! Also, quick sidenote to all of those who are complaining that this book was written in Old English- it wasn't. It wasn't even written in Middle English. This was written in MODERN ENGLISH!!!

The formatting was horrible. The text looks likes one big block-- no separation even between speakers. Unreadable.

Reading Shakespeare and understanding him are two different things for me. I’m not sure about anyone else, but I need a translator when trying to wade through all of his Old English. This guide is a Godsend! I finally feel like I’m able to both enjoy and understand the writing of one of the greatest poets and playwrights to ever exist. You don’t really realize how helpful the modern day translation really is, until you pick up this guide. It’s an “Aha!” moment stuffed in between a front and back cover. Love it!

Want an “A” on that next paper? This book will certainly help because Shakespeare is finally clear, just like the title of Garamond Press’ A Midsummer Night’s Dream shakespeare made clear touts. This book makes it easy. Each Act begins with a summary and each Elizabethan line is followed by a word-for-word explanation. Literary devices, meter, historical references, imagery, poetic style—all of these are explained in very simple ways that make Shakespeare’s words vivid and funny and sad and mischievous and romantic all at once. Isn’t that what dreams are made of?

I would suggest getting a book like this that was not digitalized by google. It was hard too read and somewhat unenjoyable
