Puck: Shakespeare's Shape-Shifter

Puck: Shakespeare's Shape-Shifter | A Midsummer Night's Dream | Scoop.it
Jessica Camara's insight:

 

SOURCE ARTICLE: This article discusses the history behind Shakespeare's Puck character. " Puck in the play "A Midsummer Night's Dream." The character is more naughty elf than demon, though there is a hint of malice in his pranks."

What if Shakespeare Had Been Born a Girl? Women in the Queen's England

What if Shakespeare Had Been Born a Girl? Women in the Queen's England | A Midsummer Night's Dream | Scoop.it
Jessica Camara's insight:

 

HISTORICAL ARTICLE: This article contrasts the women found in Elizabethan fiction with the actual women of the time. The women in literature were, "heroic and mean; splendid and sordid; infinitely beautiful and hideous in the extreme. In real life, however, these women of men's imaginations did not exist." The author explores the limitations and expectations that were forced on these women, and which, locked them into an almost certain, and bleak, future.

Jessica Camara's insight:

 IMAGE: "Thisbe, played by Jindřich Mošna, of the National Theatre in Prague, January 16, 1884." It's interesting to get a glimpse of the play at this time through this character portrait!

Jessica Camara's insight:

 

LITERARY CRITICISM: "This essay examines what is perhaps Shakespeare's most famous comedy, "A Midsummer Night's Dream." It summarizes the plot in which an argument between Oberon and Titania, the King and Queen of the Fairies, spreads to include four young Athenian lovers and a group of artisans practicing a play. In addition, it looks at the contexts relating to this story, in particular the historical period and society which is reflected in the play."

A Midsummer Night's Dream - 1935 (End Scene)

A Midsummer Night's Dream 1935 End Scene Oberon & Titania, with all their Train.

Jessica Camara's insight:

VIDEO CLIP: "“If we shadows have offended, Think but this, and all is mended, That you have but slumbered here While these visions did appear. And this weak and idle theme, No more yielding but a dream, Gentles, do not reprehend: If you pardon, we will mend: And, as I am an honest Puck, If we have unearned luck Now to 'scape the serpent's tongue, We will make amends ere long; Else the Puck a liar call; So, good night unto you all. Give me your hands, if we be friends, And Robin shall restore amends.”
