A Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare || I should be honest and say that reading Shakespeare terrifies me. I'm afraid I'm going to get into one of his plays and have absolutely no idea what is going on. I've read Romeo & Juliet, Macbeth and a few others but it was always in a class. If I wasn't understanding it I could rely on class discussions and other things. So I was nervous trying it on my own. But I put on my big girl pants and picked a short one... :/
I was a tad bit familiar with A Midsummer Night's Dream because of an exercise I remember doing in a theater class in high school. But overall it was new and I'm happy to say it went well. I understood it! Once you get into the rhythm of his writing, it's easier. Shakespeare has a very strange sense of humor, but I enjoyed it. I cannot even begin to pretend like I can analyze it and find all the cool symbols but that wasn't really my objective. Shakespeare, we good.
