Historical: Where shakespeare got his ideas for character lysander

Historical: Where shakespeare got his ideas for character lysander | Austin's A Midsummer Night's Dream | Scoop.it

"Gods And Goddesses." Columbia Dictionary Of Quotations From Shakespeare (1998): 149-150. Literary Reference Center. Web. 27 Mar. 2013.

austin cloutier's insight:

Shakespeare’s characters are based off of people in the past or others that are historical. For example Lysander’s character is based off of a military general. Another good example is puck that was commonly used in Shakespeare’s plays as a trickster. Of course in a midsummer night’s dream he is living up to that name even more as the main trickster.

austin cloutier's insight:

This video really summed up the play a midsummer night's dream for me in a quick and easy way. This video speaks in a way that I can understand because it’s in modern day English. This video also caught my eye because it’s by a well known site that has all the translations of olden day plays and books. The other reason why I picked this was because it doesn’t go into too much detail it gets to the point in a quick and efficient way.

Literary Critisism of a Midsummer Night's Dream

Literary Critisism of a Midsummer Night's Dream | Austin's A Midsummer Night's Dream | Scoop.it
austin cloutier's insight:

I chose this literary criticism because it showed how Helenia was betrayed all because the fairy king wanted to steal a little boy from his ex wife Tatiana for his own personal messenger. He saw that the two Athenians Demetrius and Helenia were fighting so he tried to fix it by putting a love potion in Demetrius’s eyes and then Lysander’s so Helenia is left alone.

In the play a midsummer night’s dream the four main characters Lysander, Hermia, Demetrius and Helena are in a sticky situation. The fairy god put a love potion in the eyes of Lysander who was in love with Hermia so now Helena has Lysander loving her. She thinks this is a joke. Soon to find out the potion is put in Demetrius was under the spell as well and he also falls in love with Helena. So now Hermia is left alone with no one to love her.
