9780553213003: A Midsummer Night's Dream

Magic, love spells, and an enchanted wood provide the materials for one of Shakespeare’s most delightful comedies. When four young lovers, fleeing the Athenian law and their own mismatched rivalries, take to the forest of Athens, their lives become entangled with a feud between the King and Queen of the Fairies. Some Athenian tradesmen, rehearsing a play for the forthcoming wedding of Duke Theseus and his bride, Hippolyta, unintentionally add to the hilarity. The result is a marvelous mix-up of desire and enchantment, merriment and farce, all touched by Shakespeare’s inimitable vision of the intriguing relationship between art and life, dreams and the waking world.

· Comprehensive explanatory notes
· Vivid introductions and the most up-to-date scholarship
· Clear, modernized spelling and punctuation, enabling contemporary readers to understand the Elizabethan English

Descripción Bantam Doubleday Dell Publishing Group Inc, United States, 1990. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. annotated edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. Change and transformation are central to the action, themes and language of A Midsummer Night s Dream. In this lucid study Helen Hackett shows how the play participates in a widespread 1590s concern with mutability; often, as here, expressed through moon-imagery, and associated with representations of the ageing Virgin Queen. However, it is also very much a play about procreative change, set at one of the green hinges of the year, to use Angela Carter s phrase. The happy ending is marked by multiple marriages; and yet, these marriages have been achieved through conflict and force. Comedy veers close to tragedy, and vice versa in the inset Pyramus and Thisbe performance, illustrating Shakespeare s sense of the innate indeterminacy of genres. It is also Shakespeare s most Spenserian play in its depiction of a supernaturally animated natural world, providing the grounds for the characterization of Shakespeare as a poet of nature which was to prove so influential for Milton and the Romantics.
