A Midsummer Nights Dream Essay – Shakespeare
The play “A Midsummer Nights Dream” written by Shakespeare is one of the most famous plays of Shakespeare. In the play Shakespeare could write a tragedy and comedy at the same time. In “A Midsummer Nights Dream” he shows another play to represent

parallels to “Romeo and Julia”, but both plays have the same background, magic and fantasy. In this story Shakespeare shows many different kinds of love and marriage. In the story “A Midsummer Nights Dream” there are four plots, the royal wedding of Theseus (the duke of Athenia) and Hippolyta (the amazon queen) and the story of Athenias young lovers, Lysander, Hermia, Demetrius and Helena. The main conflict in this play is the conflict between Oberon and Titania (the fairy queens) because both are jealousy of each other. Oberon is very angry and plays a trick. He orders his servant Puck to bring his a special flower who causes on to love the first person a person sees. Oberon gives it her and she falls in love with Bottom, an ugly creature. Puck gives this charm juice the other lovers and causes a big confusing. Oberon sees that and orders puck to cancel it. He makes this and all was again good.

Now I came to the question: Should “A Midsummer Nights Dream” be performed on stage nowadays?

Pro arguments:

? Real and fantasy world.
Both plays, the “real” play and the play within combine good to each other. This combination makes the play more interesting and mysterious. The play is very amousing and has a lot of fun.

? The play has a good contrast of a happy end and a sad end because the “real” play has a happy end and the play within has a sad end. This is good and brings change in the play.

? This play shows the energy and the force of the nature. The play shows that one cannot affect the destiny and nature. What belongs together find also together

? The play is a fairy-tale and this is good because the people that watch or read this play can feel these plots better.


? The real and the fantasy worlds are more into another that makes it more difficult to understand

? It cannot keep apart the real and the fantasy worlds

? The play is not corresponds no longer up to date.

Now I came to my own opinion whether the play “A Midsummer Nights Dream” should be still played or not. I think that the play “A Midsummer Nights Dream” should be still played today, because it shows us humans, that we have to fight against the patriarchal, (the man dominates). It is completely important that the play “A Midsummer Nights Dream“wants us to show that we cannot do nothing against the power of nature and the strength of the love is powerless and which we the destiny not to affect to be able. We cannot delay our destiny however to prevent. The play should be played, since it will remain an always topically topic, the love. The love is a topic that always exists. The love is concerned to everyone. The love is in the centre of this history. This makes the play more interesting. If one is the acting modernized then that the play which one also still in 20 years could. The play plays in the coming year.
