    " this book is hilarious! this entire play expresses Shakespeare's imagination as a writer; the play is extremely delightful by all of the chaos that was created especially when the fairies intervened! i loved it! my fave character was Nick Bottom and Robin! "

    " This is absolutely my favorite Shakespeare play, as those of you who read my novel, Hanging On, might already know. The movie rocked, too, and not just because it had Michelle Pfeiffer. "

About the Author
Author William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare (1564–1616), English poet and dramatist of the Elizabethan and early Jacobean period, is the most widely known author in all of English literature and often considered the greatest. He was an active member of a theater company for at least twenty years, during which time he wrote many great plays. Plays were not prized as literature at the time, and Shakespeare was not widely read until the middle of the eighteenth century, when a great upsurge of interest in his works began that continues today.
