Sean Murphy's insight:

this article gives a more critical eye on the play. It tells about how the play is a very great play but also tells about how its hard to understand the comedy. One reason that it is hard iis that it was not made for this time period.

Sean Murphy's insight:

This article is a great resource for a historical background about the play. The article explains how basically the whole plot and idea of the play is based off of a holiday that takes place during the summer. During this holiday people would tell fairy tales and would often include fairy's, just like in the play. This article really made it interesting to see how Shakespeare related his play to events going on at that time.

Everything you ever wanted to know about Demetrius in A Midsummer Night's Dream, written by masters of this stuff just for you.
Sean Murphy's insight:

This article is a great analysis of the character Demetrius in this play. It explains how he is like a typical love struck Shakespeare character who has fallen in love with someone that they have just met. Demetrius is also one of the characters who is affected by the love juice and ends up loving Helena instead of who he originally loved which is Hermia. Demetrius is a very interesting character in A Midsummer Nights Dream.

Sean Murphy's insight:

This picture really represents the play well and shows a very important part of the play. This picture is showing one of the fairy's putting the fairy dust into one  of the characters eyes. this is important because throughout the story the fairy's use this dust to manipulate the humans.
