A Midsummer Night´s Dream is perhaps Shakespeare´s most popular play, particularly as a first introduction to Shakespeare for children--filled as it is with a marvelous mixture of aristocrats, workers, and fairies. Simple and engaging on the surface, it is none the less a highly original and sophisticated work, remarkable for both its literary and its theatrical mastery. It is one of the very few of Shakespeare´s plays which do not draw on narrative sources, which suggests that it reflects his deepest imaginative concerns to an unusual degree. For this edition, Peter Holland´s introduction looks at dreams and dreamers, tracing the materials out of which Shakespeare constructs his world of night and shadows.
