A Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare; John Crowther; SparkNotes StaffPresents the complete text of William Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream," with a line-by-line translation of the play in simple language, a list of characters, and a commentary.
The title suggests an atmosphere of fantasy, whimsy, and imagination, which is a pretty accurate description of the magical wood where characters experience events that seem more like a dream than reality.
