Wheres the Minotaur?-AMND image relation

Wheres the Minotaur?-AMND image relation | David Desautell's A Midsummer Night's Dream | Scoop.it
david desautell's insight:

The character Theseus is taken from the myth, Theseus and the Minotaur, however, never not once is the Minotaur even mentioned in they play, IF Shakespeare wanted to build a strong and noble Theseus for his play, why wasn't his great triumph of slaying the great Minotaur mentioned?

I thought that you really picked a good video for this topic, and your character. I think it gave a different veiw point of how Theseus is very caring and cautious in the film, and where the name could have came from, the "actual" man was a war leader and had many enemies.

Great decision on the video. Depicts the character Theseus in a great and exciting way. Shows how he's different from the play very actively as compared to his character in this movie. How he can be cruel and violent to anyone who stands in his way of being a king. Great comparison overall.

The anamorphic doubling of Theseus and Hippolyta ~Literary Criticism

The anamorphic doubling of Theseus and Hippolyta ~Literary Criticism | David Desautell's A Midsummer Night's Dream | Scoop.it
david desautell's insight:

The author of this article suggests that Shakespeare uses a type of literary  Anamorphism (defined in the article)  to trace Theseus and Hippolyta with Oberon and Titania. I agree that the litterary criticism is valid because Anamorphism was often used in Reniassance era arts and it would also make sense that shakespeare would also try to include it in his art

Theseus and the Minotaur

Theseus and the Minotaur | David Desautell's A Midsummer Night's Dream | Scoop.it
david desautell's insight:

SOURCE ARTICLE:
This article relates the character, Theseus, in Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. It tells about the myth of Theseus and the Minotaur. In this myth, the brave Theseus battles and kills the great Minotaur, with the help of Ariadne. Then, the two fall in love and sail back to Athens to get Married. Shakespeare kept the brave character Theseus however he changed the role of Ariadne to be Hippolyta.
