An analysis of the plot and characters of Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream." The author shows how the success of the play depends on the audience's ability to suspend disbelief and believe in magic.

From the Paper:

"The play is not a play that would have been written in 2002, because it is partly a comedy of manners. For instance, Hermia's and Lysander's crisis is unimaginable in this day and age. No leader, even one who had complete powers, would agree to put the daughter of a friend to death or send her to a convent if she did not marry the husband her father had chosen for her. This is an example of negotiating (2/2/02), but one that dates the play. Nevertheless, eloping was a much greater act of defiance during Shakespeare's time than it is now."
