Literary Criticism

 

Everything about a Midsummer Night's Dream is related to the theme of marriage. In the story there are three weddings that take place. Also there is a preformance at the wedding. The play represents comety and love, of the lovers in the play Pyramus and Thisbe. They dont interact like normal people would act. Puck acts like a goblin, Titania and oberon are distant in their relationship, and bottom and his fellow actors are regular people. Lysander and Demetrious are transformed by oberons majical flower, which alters the charecters and their out look on things. Exept Lysanders change is temperory.Change occurs only in the pattern of the lovers' relationships not in how they will act around each other.
