A Midsummer Night's Dream

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

VIDEO:

This video is significant because it shows how young children can put on A midsummer nights dream and still make it as real as it was in Elizabethean England. The children put in their own interpretation of a fairy. They add in some of their own attitude and it pretty much can be set in any time. The children's clothes show that it is from a time where clothing is raggy and uncolorful.

Do you think that the youthfulness of children would change the way they view the play? If so, do you think that their interpretations of the play are better or worse than the interpretation of a normal adult?

Abbey Narodowy's insight:

PHOTO:

This photo shows Hippolyta and Theseus's wedding when they invited demetrius and hernia and lysander and helena to get married with them. This image would strike me as an audience member because it is from Elizabethan era. It shows a real life photo of what the royal wedding would really look like.

Do you think alll Elizabethian Era weddings were arranged by the females father? Also did they get to pick what they want to wear, or this also arranged for the females?

Hippolyta

Hippolyta | Abbey Narodowy's A Midsummer Night's Dream | Scoop.it
Abbey Narodowy's insight:

SOURCE ARTICLE:  

 Hippolyta was the Amazon queen from greek mythology. In most myths she is mother of hyppolytus, lover of horses. Their name was derived from hippo which is greek for horse. She rejected the love of phaedra and she was dragged by his horse that was frightened by a sea monster as her punishment. Shakespear used this character Hippolyta and gave her the part at Theseus's wife.

Abbey Narodowy's insight:

HISTORICAL ARTICLE:

This article tells us how the plays in the elizabethan era took place and how Shakespears plays effected our plays today. It informs us how Shakespear began writing his first plays.This article tells us what how early play ideas are know as "Hstory plays". Shakespear became a part of the famous "History plays" industry and the arts industry flourished.

I was just wondering if this article said anything about how the play settings differed from in Shakespeares time to now?

Abbey Narodowy's insight:

LITERARY CRITICISM:

This literary criticism is significant becuase the aithor of this article is very knowledgable about the play and also of many other plays to compare this play to. He talks about how A Midsummer Night's Dream is like Romeo and Juliet but in drakness but it shines merrily. he is thinking about the deeper meaning of the play he notices every detail.

While it is compared to Romeo and Juliet, is it compared to anything else?
