  • 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.

Wordplay, such as the use of oxymorons, is an abundant source of humor in ...

    ... ey are blinded as to the misfortunes that are bound to cross the course of true love. This causes them to run away. (Scott 382-385) Mark van Doren explains the language and poetry in "A Midsummer Nights Dream" as an immense expanse of Shakespeares extraordinary poetic imagination. This imagination is vast enough to house fairy realms and the world of reality, including all the peculiar manifestations of either place. Also the ability to describe the separate and often quite dissimilar regions of the plays universe by drawing on the rich resources of poetry. The words moon and water dominate the poetry of the play. (McIntosh 3) "...four happy days bring in another moon: but, O, me thinks, ...

  • Midsummer Nights Fream - 970 words
    Midsummer Night's Fream In A Midsummer Nights Dream, Shakespeare uses the green world and its inhabitants as a symbol of imagination. The characters flee from reality to escape the laws that govern everyday life in Athens. The importance of imagination reveals itself when the constraints of everyday life are lost in this realm. The fact that actors fall asleep multiple times reinforces Shakespeares allusion to an escape from reality. Fairies playfully create a magical scene creating a suspension of disbelief for the actors as well as the audience. The problems that these characters face are remedied because of the ability of the mind to create this mythical world. Harmony is restored to the ...

  • Waking Up From A Midsummer Nights Dream - 1,353 words
    ... ng the two film versions of A Midsummer Night's Dream, I envisioned something much more casual and lighthearted, even funny, for our own performance of Act III, Scene ii. Because of this, and probably because of the nature of the cast in general, our group took on a more youthful, somewhat ridiculous approach to the play. Demetrius was played by a woman, Lysander dressed in ruffles and knickers, Helena victimized and shrewish to the extreme, and Hermia was more often than not stepping into violen!ce. Nevertheless, in some ways we found ourselves doing exactly the things that we saw in the films. For example, once performing, it was not difficult to see elements of the characters we play ...
