Shakespear's Birthplace

Shakespear's Birthplace | Ellyn Narodowy's A Midsummer Night's Dream | Scoop.it
Ellyn Narodowy's insight:

 This is a video of Shakespears home where he grew up. He also spent 5 years of his life here with his wife Anne Hathaway. It has been welcoming visitors for over 250 years. This is the house where William Shakespear was born, grew up, and played. He ate his meals in the hall and slept and dreamt in these rooms. It is interesting to see the place that William Shakespear grew up and get more of an understanding of his background.

Hermia

Hermia | Ellyn Narodowy's A Midsummer Night's Dream | Scoop.it
Ellyn Narodowy's insight:

SOURCE:

Hermia's name is a feminine derivative of the greek god Hermes, God of traders and theives and a messanger of the gods. He is associated with trickery, cunning, and speed. Hermia shows trickery just like hermes by tricking her father and going behind his back rather then going through with an arranged marriage. Though she knows the love assignments of the gods.

A midsummer Nights Dream Critisism

A midsummer Nights Dream Critisism | Ellyn Narodowy's A Midsummer Night's Dream | Scoop.it
Ellyn Narodowy's insight:

LITERARY CRITISISM

This article talks about bottoms part in a MidSummer Nights Dream. They say that the whole play is based on Bottom even though all the other characters are very important. Bottom is the only rustic that can see, hear, and speek to the fairie folk because he is a weaver. Puck scarcely affected bottoms consciousness. Bottoms humor and high spirits carry him through his adventures with Titania. Bottom is more interested in the charming elves, peaseblossom, cobweb, moth, and mustardseed. After four centuries the story is still a great work of literary art. The article talks about how the most famous part of the story is the marriage between Theseus and Hippolyta. It says that Transfiguation is the method and the glory of a midsummer nights dream. THey say that the whole play is based of of Bottom.

Michaela Munschy's comment, March 10, 2014 3:54 PM
does it explicitly said in the play that bottom is the only one that can interact with the fairies or was it just implied? Do you believe Botttom is the most important character?
Ellyn Narodowy's comment, March 11, 2014 8:26 AM
Michaela, it did day that bottom was the only one who could interact with the faries in the article. I do think that bottom is the most important after reading the article.
