This paper examines the play "A Midsummer Night's Dream" by William Shakespeare. It describes the playful pursuit of romance and the hilarious farce that is totally reasonless. The author writes that "A Midsummer Night's Dream" illustrates the farcical nature of love and celebrates its unquestionable irrationality."

From the Paper:

"'A Midsummer Night's Dream' is the quintessential romantic parody. Involving the use of magic potions and mythical creatures, Shakespeare portrays love as a potentially ridiculous pursuit and one totally devoid of reason. When Bottom states to Titania in Act 3, Scene 1, "reason and love keep little company together nowadays," he sums up one of the main themes of the play. Reason and love usually do not coexist, for emotions take on a life of their own."
