9781580495882: A Midsummer Night's Dream


"Lord, what fools these mortals be!"

Written in the 1590s — reportedly for a wedding party attended by Queen Elizabeth I — A Midsummer Night 's Dream has all the charm of an afternoon frolic in the countryside. Fairies and magical potions add to the delight as love is turned upside down.

Shakespeare moves us with the imagery and rhythms of his verse, and we revel in the sharpness of his insight into life, love, and the human condition. Memorable characters abound, playfulness and mischief control the plot, and the play-within-a-play remains one of the great scenes in English comedy.

To make A Midsummer Night' s Dream more accessible for the modern reader, this Prestwick House Literary Touchstone Classics edition includes a glossary of challenging words as well as convenient sidebar notes to help the reader through confusing or difficult portions of the text. This additional material will help the reader more fully enjoy the beauty of the verse, the wisdom of the insights, and the impact of the play.
