A Midsummer Night's Dream

"A Midsummer Night's Dream" was written by William Shakespeare around 1590-1596. It portrays the events surrounding the marriage of the Duke of Athens, Theseus, and the Queen of the Amazons, Hippolyta. These include the adventures of four young Athenian lovers and a group of amateur actors, who are manipulated by the fairies who inhabit the forest in which most of the play is set. The play is one of Shakespeare's most popular works for the stage and is widely performed across the world.

What do you think might have happened if oberon had not interfered with the conflict among the four young people?

Lysander and Hermia would likely have got to Lysander's aunt's place outside the city, and have found a way to be married. Egeus would have been so angry that he would have talked Theseus into banishing them. Meanwhile Demetrius would have been frustrated and angry with tramping around the woods all night and have blamed Helena for the whole thing. Helena would have run off crying and have gone to a convent to become a nun. Demetrius would have become a crabby and abusive bachelor. Hippolyta would not have been impressed with Theseus's governing skills and would have murdered him shortly after their marriage. Lysander and Hermia, being banished from Athens, would have moved to Corinth or Thebes or some other Greek city, and become prosperous and happy.

That's what I think anyway.

How is Hermia's dream a reflection of reality?

She says about her dream (in 2,2) "Methought a serpent ate my heart away, and you sat smiling at his cruel prey." While she has been sleeping Lysander, under the influence of love-in-idleness, has abandoned her for Helena. Hermia's dream that Lysander does not care about her (since he could watch a serpent eat her heart and smile) is a relection of reality.

What is an example of low comedy in Midsummer night Dream?

Low comedy is the Mechanicals performance of Pyrimus and Thisbe, they give the audience "tragical mirth" and slapstick funny while performing a play about a tragic love affair. We really don't pay attention to the fact that this play is a representation of what could have happened to the four lovers in the play because we are too busy laughing at Bottom's performance.

Whose wedding is being anticipated in the city midsummer nights dream?

A Midsummer Nights Dream takes place in the city of Athens, where king Theseus is getting ready to marry Hippolyta - the queen of the Amazons - who is a prisoner of war.

Theseus is clearly very excited about the marriage. We never really find out how Hippolyta feels about it.
