Dreaming and what happens during the period of slumber are two important themes that emerge from the Shakespearean comedy "A Midsummer Night's Dream". This paper discusses the difference between actual dreams and the surreal situation in order to grasp the meaning and significance of "dreaming" in the play.
From the Paper:"A Midsummer Night's dream, as the name suggest, is full of instances of fantasy and illusion which makes it on the one hand, a beautiful magical tale while on the other a comic story where surrealism outweighs every other force. While many would think that love is the dominant theme of the play, the playwright it appears had another theme in mind when he created this story. Shakespeare has given dreams a more dominant role to play in the plot because it is during the period of slumber that magical things happen to the characters, which completely change the course of the play."
