“How shall we beguile the lazy time, if not with some delight?”

A Midsummer Night’s Dream is one of Shakespeare’s most popular works for the stage and is widely performed across the world. This audiobook features a unique cover illustration by Maurice Sendak (Where the Wild Things Are), specially commissioned for the Shakespeare on Compact Disc series. An introductory essay by Harvard scholar Harold Bloom accompanies the audio.

The play portrays the events surrounding the marriage of the Duke of Athens, Theseus, and Hippolyta. These include the adventures of four young Athenian lovers and a group of six amateur actors who are controlled and manipulated by the fairies who inhabit the forest in which most of the play is set. Considered by some to be one of Shakespeare’s most lyrical poetic works, the beautiful language is matched only by the wit and humor behind it.
