Aaron, Jacob, and Kara's insight:

 As stated by Sandra K. Fischer ,"A Midsummer Night’s Dream marks the maturation of William Shakespeare’s comic form beyond situation and young romantic love". Shakespeare uses his in depth knowledge on love and emotion to show how love, no matter how true it feels, it's not always real.

Aaron, Jacob, and Kara's insight:

In this part of the Shakespearean Classic, "A Midsummer Night's Dream," Shakespeare portrays the role of woman in an unusual way. Today authors portray woman as equals to men in every aspect of life. But back in the Elizabethan Age, woman were portrayed as property and had no control over their lives. They were to be the property of their fathers and were forced to marry and become the property of their husbands. Shakespeare connects this to the play by showing woman standing up for what they believe in and defying authority.

Conflict in Shakespeare’s Hamlet & A Midsummer Night’s Dream | Allard,Haselton,Matt A Midsummer Night's Dream | Scoop.it
Aaron, Jacob, and Kara's insight:

Both Hamlet and A Midsummer Night's Dream share a similar theme of conflict and its repercussions. According to The System of Shakespeare’s Dramas, St Louis: G. T. Jones and Company, 1877 "(Shakespeare’s) tragedies never fail of having their comic interludes; his comedies have … a background with a tragic outlook.". The conflicts in A Midsummer Night's Dream all can be related back to either love or marriage. These conflicts can be linked to the different themes of the play such as love making you crazy and the moon. Also that marriage can be related to the idea that love is inconstant.

Aaron, Jacob, and Kara's insight:

 This article relates to the play because it talks about reoccurring themes in Shakespeare's writings. One example of which would be that Shakespeare's plays show a timeless affect on the world. According to Shakespeare's Theatre: A Dictionary of His Stage Context; 2004, p355-356, 2p "These plays invite a kind of timeless staging". Shakespeare's plays display a timeless affect that still has a hold on us to this day. Another example would be that Shakespeare reviews the rooted ideas of European society. An example would be how women were considered property in the Elizabethan era.
