This poetic, engaging work of Shakespeare is probably one of the best loved plays out of all of Shakespeare’s plays. This is a play about many pairs of Lovers. You meet a few groups that play a big part in the story- the young lovers, workers coming together organizing a play, and fairies. I loved the poetic style of writing used and how you got to know the characters. It really makes you feel the love shared between the people though you also experience the deceiving acts of jealous, desperate people. I thought it was well written and presented a beautiful view of classic love. This copy of the play that was edited by Peter Holland is something that I thought is quite useful for helping you understand some of the strange Shakespearean talk used in the play with the footnotes it provides explaining the words and concepts. I do recommend reading this play if you enjoy romance or Shakespeare’s plays.
