A Midsummer Night’s Dream Oct. 10, 2010
The nature of comedy, the nature of love, and the nature of theater are dramatized for the audience in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Shakespeare’s use of setting and dialogue contribute to the atmosphere of the play and compliment its meaning. The language of Theseus is different from the language of the lovers, and the language of the 4 lovers changes as they move from Athens to the Wood. Bottom and his friends butcher the English language when they speak to each other, and Shakespeare assigns them the most ridiculous script ever written for Pyramus and Thisby. In addition to reviewing what has been noted and said about comic plot, the nature of true love, symbolic setting, and the suspension of disbelief, you should also see how Shakespeare’s use of language works to enhance his art.
