The characters are set in a given space and time. Shakespeare draws his material from a large body of social background, historical facts and myth : let us see the Greek background, the May festivities, and the fairies and spirits.The play is set in early Greece, in Athens. It is unexpected as so much of the play seems so typically England.This athenian background represents order and reason, all the more appropriate as it serves to emphasize the fantastic aspect of the forest.
The author of this aritcle is W. H. Auden she explains that a mid summer nights dream is a very familair work, it is the first play to show shakespeares unique contrbutiop as a dramatist presenting not only the sense of the relations of human charcters to each other but as well as objects and nature.
This image helped me have a better understanding for the play because it gave me a clear idea of how the plays were set up on stage and how everyone intteracted with eachother. the clothing in this image also helped me create an image in my head of how the people would dress in the Elizabtian era.
When did Shakespeare write A Midsummer Night's Dream? Was the play based on a real wedding?
Tyler Corriveau's insight:
I thought it was Interesting that no one knows exactly when this play was written, back then no one cared so today no one knows. It says it was printed in 1600 but mentioned in 1598.I researched an article by katharine Lee Bates. with further research i found out that it was mostly written in 1594.

Tyler Corriveau's insight:
In this video it breaks down the crazy love triangle between lysander and Demterius. I choose this video because I've always liked disney charcters, and it broke down part of the play for me into a funny way. I understood the laungue a lot better than I had reading the orginal play
