Midsummer Night's Dream

Maddy Mellor's insight:

In A Midsummer Night's Dream, there is a play  inside the play, which is at Theseus and Hippolyta's wedding. It is found more enjoyable that the inside play was performed by amateur actors.

"This Sport Well Carried Shall Be Chronicled": Puck as Trickster in Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream

Maddy Mellor's insight:

Although Puke is considered to be a trickster, it is hardly mentioned in  Midsummer night's Dream. This might be because they wanted to aviod " reopening a topic that one might have assumed had been too frequently or too extensively discussed to merit any further examination." Puke is known to have many charcteristics of  a tricker, which is my society considers him to be one.

The song chosen for your video was extremely impressive! Personally, i really enjoyed how instead of a video, you acted unique and very creative, thus thinking outside of the box with this. Although during your presentation, the video did have some issues with playing correctly, your presentation was very nice and clear with very broad topics and main points. I really loved the song and think it's very nice to listen to and was very well thought of and put together. In addition, for a question, what made you choose a song? Is it because you're in the band program and really like music?

I agree with Juliana that the song was creative, but I think that it was over embellishing the epilogue a bit.

Maddy Mellor's insight:

This aritical is a conversation from the Philoctrtes Center of New York discussing Shakespeare's possible personalitys and if it is expressed through his plays. Many people have tried to discover Shakespeare's true personality and comparing how people thought he was to how he really was Alvin Epstein, Eugene Mahon, Ron Rosenbaum, Daniela Varon and J.P. Wearing, are trying to do that in this source.

Hippolyta

Hippolyta | Maddy Mellor's  A Midsummer Night's Dream | Scoop.it

FINDLAY A. Hippolyta. Women In Shakespeare [serial online]. March 2010;:188-190. Available from: Literary Reference Center, Ipswich, MA. Accessed February 3, 2014.

Maddy Mellor's insight:

This article is all about Hippolyta and how she is repesented in both "A Midsummers Night's Dream" and "Two Noble Kinsmen" (By Shakespeare and Fletcher). In "Two Noble Kinsen", she was based off of the Greek Myth of the Amazon Queen. Also, this artitical showed where Shakespeare had based Hippolyta's name from, and how it had come from Chaucer's "Knyhters Tale
