LITERARY CRITISISM - This critisism by Rodney Edgecombe analyzes the seasonal unrest that Titania talks about in her conversation with Oberon. Edgecombe attempts to disern whether this "meteorological confusion" is based on fact or purley fictional, for the effect of the fighting fairies.
IMAGE - In this image, called The Quarrel of Oberon and Titania, explains the part of the story that takes place in the forest. The picture shows the audience that in the forest are humans and their problems, but also the alternate universe of supernatural beings and their discourses. A Midsummer Night's Dream was basically a tale of natural and supernatural worlds colliding: wacky misadventures ensue.
HISTORICAL ARTICLE - This article gives insight into the situation of women of the Elizabethan era, and portrays their fight for equality. This article also demostrates why Egeus is somewhat justified in his controlling antics. The Elizabethan time period and our modern culture are extremely different, and arranged marriages were not uncommon. Daughters were exepcted to obey their fathers willingly, and Hermia broke all social norms when she blatantly disobeyed.

SOURCE - We all know Egeus, Hermia's father. Some of us may not know his namesake, Aegeus, the king of ancient Athens. In mythology, Aegeus sends his son Theseus to Crete to defeat the Minotaur and save his subjects. I connected this to Egeus in the way that Egeus may be acting in his daughter's best interests.
Originally from 1999 and seen in the House of Mouse episode "House of Scrooge", this is Shakespeare's a Midsummer Night's Dream Disney Style
John O'Donnell's insight:
VIDEO - This modern production of Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" from our animated friends at Disney reinforces the timelessness of the peice. First we must take into account the fact that "A Midsummer Night's Dream" was first constructed almost four hundred years ago, and the fact that it is still very well know and people the world over have read it speaks for itself. The characters of this parody use most of the same language, but i think the familiar charcters and the video aiming to be understood by children make Shakespeare's elaborate language a little easier to understand.
