A picture for the play A Midsummer Night's Dream

A Midsummer Night's Dream

Shakespeare's comedy, one of his most popular plays performed over the ages, was most likely written between 1590 and 1597. It's a wonderful subterfuge of events surrounding the marriage of Theseus, the Duke of Athens, to Hippolyta.

Oberon, Titania and Puck with Fairies Dancing by William Blake, c. 1786
