A Midsummer Nights Dream
Regular price $1.50
Perhaps one of the most popular of William Shakespeare comedies, A midsummer’s nights dream humorously celebrates the vagaries of love. The approaching wedding festivities of Theseus, Duke of Athens, and his bride-to-be, Hippolyta, queen of the Amazon’s, are delightfully crisscrossed with the on-again, off-again romance of the two young pairs of Athenian lovers; a fateful rivalry between king and queen of the fairies; theatrical aspirators of a bumbling troupe of Athenian laborers. It all ends happily in the wedding-night revelry complete with a play-within-a-play presented la borers of the ecstatic amusement of all. This edition, complete with explanatory foot-notes, is reprinted unabridged from a standard British edition.
