Saige Macleod's insight:

LITERARY ARTICLE.

 

This literary article is a different viewing of a Midsummer Night's Dream. It shows how the young Indian child is portrayed. As Titania sees him as her personal duty, she had made a promise and having kept that promise she refuses to give him up. Oberon sees the boy as his own personal errand boy. He doesn’t care about his well-being or anything he just wants to use him. The young boy has no say in this decision and overall is just the whole reason of why the couple is fighting in the first place.

Saige Macleod's insight:

PICTURE.

 

I find this picture very interesting. I like how the colors are portrayed. There is both light and darkness shown. The main thing in this picture is the elf or fairy like boy child. I think it is interesting how they are showing Puck as a child because like the play they say he is childish and portraying him as a child is a new twist.

SOURCE ARTICLE.

 

This article is about how Hippolyta is based on the Amazon queen from Greek mythology. It also reveals that Hippolyta is sometimes identified with Antiope and in most versions of the myths she is the mother to Hippolytus, lover of horses. This queen was attacked by Attica and was defeated by Theseus.

In Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream, she is the proud and clever woman who is engaged to Theseus, duke of Athens.

Video: Midsummer Night's Dream from the movie "Get over it"

So funny...
Saige Macleod's insight:

VIDEO.

 

 

This video is a different showing of the play Midsummer Night's Dream. Instead of a serious or how it was written to be kind of showing, the director chose to do a funnier entertaining version. I chose this video because I enjoy musicals and funny movies. Also because this was part of a movie it is possible that people are familiar with the actors or even the movie itself.

Saige Macleod's insight:

HISTORICAL ARTICLE.

 

This is an encyclopedia entry for "costumes". It offers information on its occurrence and significance in William Shakespeare's plays and poems, as well as its present-day meaning. It shows Shakespeare's usage of costumes, and of the present-day literary, historical and cultural issues involved. In the absence of anything but a permanent set, and minimal props, the Elizabethan stage paid exceptional attention to costumes.
