Description

'If we shadows have offended, Think but this, and all is mended- That you have but slumbered here While these visions did appear' A young woman, Hermia, flees ancient Athens with her lover, only to be pursued by her would-be husband and her best friend. Unwittingly, all four find themselves in an enchanted forest where fairies and sprites take an interest in human affairs, dispensing magical love potions and casting mischievous spells. In one of Shakespeare's most perennially popular comedies, slapstick collides with courtly romance and confusion ends in harmony, as love is transformed, misplaced and ultimately restored. 'He could mingle sublimity with pathos, bitterness with joy and peace and love.' Aldous Huxley General Introduction by Stanley Wells Edited by Stanley Wells With an Introduction by Helen Hackett
