Gianna DeLuca's insight:

LITERARY CRITICISM:

  This article says that Hippolyta had a really big role in history but in the play she did not.  Hippolyta should have had a bigger role in this play knowing all the history behind this character.

HISTORICAL ARTICLE:

This article talks about the construction of the globe theater.  Between April and June all of Shakespeare's 36 plays were performerd at this theater in 37 different languages.  Having 36 of Shakespeare's plays performed at this theater shows how popular his plays were and how greatly known he was for his plays.

Hippolyta

Hippolyta | Gianna DeLuca's A Midsummer Night's Dream | Scoop.it
Gianna DeLuca's insight:

SOURCE ARTICLE:

Shakespeare took Hippolyta from Greek mythology.  Hippolyta was the mother of Hippolytus and the lover of horses.  The Greek word for "hippo" is horse.  Hippolyta has this fierce female role, but in A Midsummer Night's Dream  Shakespeare made her so she was not as important.  This is interesting that Shakespeare changed Hippolyta completly because when the play opens Hippolyta is no longer the warrior women because she was conqured by Theseus.  Hippolyta does not care about being his trophy wife, she seems to just happy to be engaged.  Hippolytas character in the play represents the female role being taken over by male authority.

I think it is pretty interesting the way that Hippolyta was transformed for A Midsummer Night's Dream, and I think you did an awesome job describing what she was like in Greek literature and how Shakespeare changed her around for her role in this book.

IMAGE:

This is a picture of Bottom when he turned into the donkey.  Puck turned Bottom into an ass when he was practicing for the play. When he became an ass all of Bottoms friends got scared and ran off. But Titania the fairy queen took a love potion.

Gianna DeLuca's insight:

VIDEO:

This video shows the duke, the dad, Hippolyta, Lysander and Demetrius.  It shows how the dad wants Hermia a to marry Demetrius, but she is in love with Lysander.  Having this video being a cartoon shows that children could comprehend what was going on in this play.  Seeing that Disney did something with this play, it shows that this play is very big and a lot of people know about this certain play by Shakespeare.
