    Re reading the play this time, I couldn t stop thinking of of The Magic Flute Like Mozart s opera, Shakespeare s play may have a silly plot composed of fanciful, seemingly arbitrary elements, yet, through the power of absolute artistic mastery, the framework of what might otherwise be nothing but a second rate masque is transformed, by the unwearied attention of genius and in Shakespeare s case, sublime poetry into a work of great resonance, an archetypal myth.

    Ein Sommernachtstraum is one of the top references as a classic In the beginning, it is difficult to get there, but once you get used to the style, it is quite an entertaining, beautiful and confused story about the back and forth of the love affair A must for interested in Shakespear and theater.

    My Favorite Play After reading all Shakespeare plays, I wonder why schools focus so much on the tragedies and not so much on the comedies We were never assigned a comedy to read in school, but to me, this is by far Shakes best play, hands down I ll take this over Hamlet, Macbeth or Romeo.I love the Puck and he has so many great lines in the stories This work gives me life I have seen several movie versions of this, but I haven t seen the play in person bucket list One of my favorite quot My Favorite Play After reading all Shakespeare plays, I wonder why schools focus so much on the tragedies and not so much on the comedies We were never assigned a comedy to read in school, but to me, this is by far Shakes best play, hands down I ll take this over Hamlet, Macbeth or Romeo.I love the Puck and he has so many great lines in the stories This work gives me life I have seen several movie versions of this, but I haven t seen the play in person bucket list One of my favorite quotes is, I see their knavery this is to make an ass of me, to fright me if they could But I will not stir from this place, do what they can I will walk up and down here and I will sing, that they shall hear I am not afraid It s a quote that really empowered me in a time in my life I grew into the person that sent me to acupuncture school They shall hear I am not afraid by singing it really meant so much to me and who I was I use to say that to myself all the time Somehow in the stress of school and doing all the hoops I had to jump through for school, I lost that and now, I am afraid of the world and sit in my house alone and this was before Covid 19 I have my family, yes, and I m thankful for them, but it s important to have friends too When I left home, I haven t totally replaced my community and it s all my own fault I long to take back the power of those words and and not be afraid I use to love what made me so unique and it s hard to get to, at the moment.The fairy fantasy is sandwiched between a love story The best part of the story is the love story part, but I love this whole thing the words, the subject, the love story and the fairies Someone made a modern movie based on this called, Were the World Mine and several of these quotes are set to music and I have listened to those powerful songs hundreds of times I love it It s a gay take on the play and it s hilarious I would love to read this yearly and I just haven t It is a goal to claim To me, this is one of the most brilliant stories told anywhere It rings at a deep level for me It brings me life, joy and wonder It has to be one of the top 3 books of all time for me It doesn t get any better
