Fiction vs Reality

Fiction vs Reality | Shannon Moran's A Midsummer Night's Dream | Scoop.it
Shannon Moran's insight:

LITERARY CRITICISM: In this Literary critcism it shows how shakespears Midsummers night dream is a false show to reality. Although the play is afictional story it makes a bad judgement between reality and nature in the real world and how they interact with each other. This also creates a false identity for nature and that there isnt faries and special poisons in the forest to make you fall in love. The interpretation of Dream in this play was the aesthetic in historicist because the play implies such a concept of a false interpretation of what is real and what is not. Despite the facts of fairies quarreling, it was found that the structure in which the human and nature are permeable to each other. This quality is not really ideological. It defines an ideal space, clearly designated as a mystical forest in which it is possible to represent the confusion of humans wants and desires.

Hippolyta

Hippolyta | Shannon Moran's A Midsummer Night's Dream | Scoop.it
Shannon Moran's insight:

SOURCE ARTICLE: In this article Shakespeare got hippolyta the character’s name from Chaucer’s Knyghtes Tale. Although Hippolyta may have been influenced by the name of the Amazon queen from greek mythology. When the play was first introduced Hippolytas names was  mentioned multiple times in the beggining and there is one reference the is directed to the moon, a silver bow, and the deferment of desires, which recall Diana goddess of the chastity and allude back to hippolytas past as a quess of the amazons. (nation of all female warriors)

Two Worlds

Two Worlds | Shannon Moran's A Midsummer Night's Dream | Scoop.it
Shannon Moran's insight:

IMAGE: This Image shows on one side of an arm is nature and trees like a forest and the other side is the real world and technology. This represents how in a Midsummer night dream these two worlds were innerlocked with each other and that is what the shaking of the hands represents and how the two worlds fed off of each other and had to come together. The forest and the real world ended up towards the end of the story a very unified enviorment with all of the love triangles and the tricks that forced the two wolds to come together and compromise in a way almost which represents the hands shaking.

William Shakespeare & Ann Hathaway

William Shakespeare & Ann Hathaway | Shannon Moran's A Midsummer Night's Dream | Scoop.it
Shannon Moran's insight:

HISTORICAL ARTICLE: William Shakespeare married a woman names Ann Hathaway. William was only 18 and Ann was 26, In this article it tells that there was no actrual record of the marrage it shows that possibly Ann might have been deperate for marrage and I could of been beleived that william was forced into marrage. At this time in age woman never married so early in life or not even at all.  

William could have escaped If Shakespeare’s parents had disapproved of Ann thoroughly, they could have stopped the marriage for Shakespeare. But Shakespeares parents showed to not be the best parent and his father had re married and had multiple wives through out Williams chilhood. Which could explain why through out his marrage it is suspected that he had multiple affairs with other woman.

did this article talk about shakespheres hometown life?
Austin Boie's comment, March 31, 2014 3:51 PM
Do you think that Marriage could have given Shakespeare background knowledge for future writings?
