A Midsummer Night's Dream is one of Shakespeare's best early works: an airy, romantic romp in the woods among bumbling rustics, temporarily star-crossed lovers, and the charming fairies who bewitch them all. Drawing on a popular English folk legend and annual, Shakespeare weaves a chaotic and comical tale of misunderstanding, mischief, and magic in which, like the dream-state it mimics, no harm is permanent and all is pleasantly resolved by the play's end. A joyous celebration of love, language, and life itself, A Midsummer Night's Dream is Shakespeare at his lyrical best. Download and start listening now!

    " Such a wonderful classic. I laughed. It reminded me not to get to big for your britches. even if you are Titania, Queen of the Fairies. "

    " I loved. Especially Puck's monologue at the end. Shakespeare is such an amazing writer, how he's able to come up with all this is just incredible! "

    " I love the Cambridge School Editions of Shakespeare's plays. They are helpful for students and for teachers. Each page facing Shakespeare's original text has summary, plot, and character notes, explanation of unfamiliar words, and activities for bringing the play to life in a classroom. "

    " While I am not a huge Shakespeare fan I did find this particular play to be pretty darn good. I enjoyed the fact that there was this mix of fantasy with ideas that we can all relate to with unrequited love. It was fascinating to see how Shakespeare made fun of his own play "Romeo and Juliet" within the story as well. There is such a great woven story here that anyone that enjoys reading plays should read this. This was another book that I had to read for my Theatre course. "
