  • How Shakespear Creats Humor In A Midsummer Nights Dream - 901 words
    How Shakespear Creats Humor in A Midsummer Nights Dream Comic Fools To create humor in drama, one must either make witty wordplay, create an amusing situation, or use physical comedy. Often jokes may be incorporated into a play, or a comic situation may result in a series of complicated antics. The tradition for some of these comic devices has been carried over for hundreds of years, dating back to Shakespeare in the 1600's. In his play, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Shakespeare creates humor through three diverse devices: oxymoron's, malapropisms and mistaken identities. All result in a farcical mix of comic situations. Wordplay, such as the use of oxymorons, is an abundant source of humor in ...

  • In Shakespeares Famous Comedy, A Midsummer Nights Dream, Love Is An Important Concept The Different Characters Have Different - 338 words
    In Shakespeare's famous comedy, A Midsummer Nights Dream, love is an important concept. The different characters have different views on love that they express, and throughout the play, Shakespeare portrays a general attitude about it. One character of importance, Helena, is rather cynical about love. Because she has always been turned from, especially by her own love, Dymetrius, she is skeptical when she is loved. Nick Bottom, the amusing weaver also has an interesting take on love. When Titania falls in love with him, he says that "reason and love keep little company with each other nowadays." This comment is different from Bottoms other remarks, in that it is intelligent, so one might thi ...

  • Lord, What Fools These Mortals Be Thats What Robin Goodfellow From The Book A Midsummer Nights Dream Remarked It Is Inevitabl - 426 words
    Lord, What fools these mortals be... That's what Robin Goodfellow from the book A Midsummer Night's Dream remarked. It is inevitably the truth. The aspect of love can mar the human mind. It's hard to explain and hard to fit into mere words. Three main kinds of love seen most often in literature are romanticism, family, and friendship love. An example would be heartily clarified using the books Romeo and Juliet along with A Midsummer Night's Dream by Shakespeare. Most often, the romanticism is greatly appreciated by the audience. Tales of chivalry intrigue the human mind, making it yearn for more. This kind of love is between a man and a woman who most often wish to be bonded by marriage. Her ...

  • Magic And Mischief In Shakespeares A Midsummer Nights Dream, Reality Blends With Imagination For Example, The Fact That There - 963 words
    Magic and Mischief In Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, reality blends with imagination. For example, the fact that there are fairies with magical powers is very far-fetched, yet makes for an entertaining story. This comedy is mainly focused on the troubles of three groups of people: the two dedicated lovers, the bumbling actors, and the gleeful fairies. When these three groups collide, magic and mischief are created. Egeus, a nobleman, wants his daughter, Hermia, to marry a man named Demetrius, but she and Lysander, her fianc, are in love, and that is the basis of the plot. Because Hermia's father is so attracted to the idea of her marrying another nobleman, he becomes angry with her ...

    Midsummer Night's Dream A Midsummer Night's Dream; Theme of Love In Shakespeare's play A Midsummer Night's Dream, one of the main reoccurring themes is love. Shakespeare writes of love that is passionate and impulsive, or sensible and reasonable. In Act three, Bottom, a crude commoner states on opinion of love. And Yet, to say the truth, reason and love keep little company together now-a-days; the more pity, that some honest neighbors will not make them friends. (Act III, Scene i, line 136) However, in many ways, reason and love are already much more closely linked in their society than the modern day reader is used to. Shakespeare has one example of real love in this play: Hermia and Lysand ...

    Midsummer Night's Dream The play "A Midsummer Nights Dream" by William Shakespeare offers a wonderful contrast in human mentality. Shakespeare provides insight into mans conflict with the rational versus emotional characteristics of human behavior. Athens represents the logical side, with its flourishing government and society. The fairy woods represents the wilder, irrational side where nothing seems to follow any sort of structure. The character of Bottom the weaver is a direct reflection of these two worlds. He brings the rational and irrational elements of the play together in several ways. Nick Bottom is indeed one of Shakespeares most memorable creations. He is first introduced during ...

    Midsummer Nights Dream William Shakespeare intensifies the emotion of love and foolishness in the epic tale of four lovers and an enchanted forest in his classic Midsummer Nights Dream. Early in this work, we learn of two young maidens, Hermia and Helena, and their unfulfilled passions. Hermia, the daughter of a gentleman, is cast into the burden of marrying a suitor, Demetrius, chosen by her father for which she does not love. Instead, she has fallen for Lysander. To agitate further, Helena is madly in love with Demetrius, who treats her as if she does not exist. As a result, Helenas emotions can be shared by everybody: infatuation, betrayal, jealousy, and spite. Therefore, it is Helenas ch ...

    Midsummer Night's Dream More strange than true. I never may believe These antic fables nor these fairy toys. Lovers and madmen have such seething brains, Such shaping fantasies, that apprehend More than cool reason ever comprehends. The lunatic, the lover, and the poet Are of imagination all compact. One sees more devils than vast hell can hold: That is the madman. The lover, all as frantic Sees Helen's beauty in a brow of Egypt. The poet's eye, in a fine frenzy rolling, Doth glance from heaven to earth, from earth to heaven And as imagination bodies forth The forms of things unknown, the poet's pen Turns them to shapes, and gives to airy nothing A local habitation and a name. Such tricks ha ...

    Midsummer Night`s Dream Character Analysis Hermia When we first meet Hermia she is the typical girl in love against her fathers wishes. Obviously we see from the start that she is very devoted to Lysander, her love, and she does not like to be forced to do things that she does not want. She does not want to marry Demetrius even though her father has pretty much told her it is that or death. Yes, she could always go live in a nunnery or live a life of chastity but who really wants that. So from the start we see that she is very adamant and very in love. Before going into Hermias inner self I must address her physical appearance. She is Egeus daughter and she is a tiny woman with a dark comple ...
