This article spiked my interest because it refers to both "A Midsummer Night's Dream", and "Hamelet". These are of course both written by Shakespeare, but they both source for one another. Seeing that it isn't positive when Shakespeare wrote Hamlet, "A Midsummer Night's Dream" is believed to serve as a source for Hamlet, and Hamlet can also serve as a source for "A Midsummer Night's Dream".

Freddie Page's insight:
This article talks about social convention during the Elizabethan Era. This had much influence on Shakespeare's work because this was the period of time where he wrote "A Midsummer Night's Dream" meanind that this story has much of these examples written within it. There is one part of the article that states "They (parliament) could sometime circumvent the Queen because they assumed that, as a woman, she was a poor decision maker. Showing the connection between this social belief, and the love triange between Hermia, Demetrius, and Lysander, and how Hermia's dad would rather have her marry the man who he likes better than the one Hermia likes because Hermia is only a young woman who is not wise.
This literary Criticism "Why A Midsmmer Nights Dream?" Picks out each part of the play down to its very threads and explains in great detail the reasoning why the play is "A Midsummer Nghts Dream". This takes the play in its most pure form meaning that it rids the play of "Director's Twists" such as having the same actor play the roles of Theseus and Oberon, or the same actress play Hippolyta and Titania. The article, then analyzes the story as such. "But the remarkable thing is that, by first establishing the woodsy dimension before introducing talk of this magic juice, and by surrounding it with such lovely connotations when he does introduce it, the combination of Shakespeare's timing and his astonishing stylistic grace shifts our attention away from the rudimentary nature of the device itself, as a way of keeping his plot on the move. And instead, we feel it as infused with the spirit of the same fancifulness with which the imagery as a whole levitates."

Freddie Page's insight:
This cartoon interpretation of A Midsummer Night's Dream gives an easy-to-understand synopsis of the social aspect of this play, but mostly how people were treated, and how people felt about marraige. This also provides quite a puny explanation of why some character traits exsist, such as the one seen at the beginning of the video where Mr. Magoo jokes about being an "ass" once he has Bottom's costume on.
