From the Paper:"In William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, the character of Lysander expresses the idea that "the course of true love never did run smooth" (I.i.134), and this represents a theme the runs through many of Shakespeare's plays and indeed through much of world literature. The statement itself embodies several ideas. First, it assumes that there is such a thing as true love and that it is a conception based on the idea that two people are literally meant for each other. Second, it states that these two people, though meant for each other, may have to endure a good deal before they can actually achieve the love they feel. Shakespeare works these ideas through in several of his works, including The Taming of the Shrew and As You Like It, in each of which there are various pairings reflecting different aspects of love and relationships."
