SHAKESPEARE, W.: Midsummer Night's Dream (A) (Unabridged)

A Midsummer Night’s Dream must be one of the most enduringly popular of Shakespeare’s plays, and it is not difficult to see why: the work blends several kinds of comedy with a powerful atmosphere of magic and mystery and a satisfying set of contrasts—between city and country, reason and imagination, love and infatuation.
