Before the magic of the fairy world is introduced , A Midsummer Night's Dream seems to be a potentially dark play about love in conflict . The plot of " Pyramus and Thisby " reflects that dark pattern . But because the craftsmen bungle ...
Going beyond a dramatic analysis, this casebook examines fascinating topics in the play-- such as love, marriage, holidays, and dreams-- and their relation to contemporary trends and topics.

PROLOGUE Dreams and visions Though critics sometimes forget , the theatre is not the study . ... Where the following chapters focus primarily upon A Midsummer Night's Dream as it has been enacted over the centuries , the emphasis is ...
After an historical survey of A Midsummer Night's Dream from Shakespeare's time through to the 19th century, Jay Halio focuses primarily on 20th century productions and adaptations, for film and television as well as for the stage. Chapters are devoted to productions by Max Reinhardt, Peter Hall, Robert Lepage, and especially to Peter Brook's landmark production in 1970 and the reactions to it. Using a wealth of personal experience, as well as original promptbooks and critical reviews, Halio shows how differently but still very effectively the play may be staged, as the wide variety of plays he records. This second, enlarged edition contains three new chapters on Adrian Noble's RSC production and film, Michael Hoffman's film, and the Dream in China. Written in clear, jargon-free language, this is the only book so far in print that offers an extended study of major 20th-century productions of the Dream in their historical context.
