HISTORICAL ARTICLE: This passage explains that the name Hermia's name derives from the Greek god Hermes. Hermes is a trickster, and a messenger. The negative meaning traces Hermia's name to the meaning of a whore. This is the same person that distracted the philosopher Aristotle during his working process. The same named person also distracts Lysander and Demetrius's attention during the book away from their normal lives (following her off into the woods).

LITERARY CRITICISM: This article talks about the anamorphism that Shakespeare used in his play. This is something painters usually use, but Shakespeare implemented something similar into his play. " First he gives us a straight-on look at Athens, then shifts our perspective by obliging us to consider the forest, then brings Athens back in the third panel and says, "Look again."The anamorphic effect arises from the fact that the forest world, though not exactly a grinning skull lying at the base of Theseus'palace, is a kind of crazed mirror of the Athenian world." This explains that instead of the reader having to take on the perspective of the scene, Shakespeare does it for you.
SOURCE ARTICLE: This shows how the word Puck is a generic name, meaning "various malevolent spirits." It is also shown how the word may refer to the devil, even though Shakespeare shows him as a kind trickster.

IMAGE: This picture represents the Globe Theater, where Shakespeare's plays were preformed. Based on it's lay out it looks like people in this era were separated by economical class. The stadium is open on top, with people standing on the ground. This seems that when it rained the poor spectators would stand in the rain on mud to watch a play. The upper class, more wealthy citizens get to sit in a balcony away from the rain and in seats when spectating the play. This can connect to how Hermia's father wants her to marry Demetrius, instead of Lysander, because of social class and how they are treated.
