I really liked it when Lysander called Hermia an acorn.
Re reading the play this time, I kept thinking 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 Shakespeare s sublime poetry, into transformative myth.
Man, being reasonable, must get drunk The best of life is but intoxication Glory, the grape, love, gold, in these are sunkThe hopes of all men and of every nation Without their sap, how branchless were the trunkOf life s strange tree, so fruitful on occasion But to return, Get very drunk and whenYou wake with headache, you shall see what then.

mini review, as I do for classics this was my first time reading Shakespeare on my own, and I kind ofsaw that as a negative I like discussing Shakespeare in a classroom setting, and being motivated to mark up the text and otherwise process it fully I felt like I missed out on stuff here.also, this play felt so short maybe it s my edition s fault, for being 111 pages maybe it s how abrupt the ending was which is very or how flat the characters were, or how there were a sh t ton of them.
It s still as awesome as I remember Though, unfortunately, causes me some initial irritation with The Iron King.Robbie Goodfellow is a wicked spirit running around having fun and pulling ridiculous pranks He s not a serious teenage boy who is dramatic and suspenseful or mysterious or sexy.Why do we have to turn everything into sexy these days Why does every male character have to suddenly fit the romantic male archetype Why are mythological creatures becoming obsessed with teenage girls
Fairies Shakespeare is like the best mix ever.
