A Midsummer Night’s Dream book is the strangest comedy of Shakespeare. This play demonstrates the extension of Shakespeare’s imagination and it also departs from his early works. Although the play does not have so much weight in it, as it has no strong plot and real protagonist, but it has the charm to amuse its audience in a lighthearted manner.
The play starts with the preparation of the marriage of the duke of Athens, Theseus. In the wedding, an Athenian nobleman, Egeus, is also invited. Egeus escorted his daughter, Hermia, with him and ask Theseus to warn Hermia to marry, Demetrius, the man to his choice otherwise she would be punished gravely. Hermia, on the other hand, loves Lysander and plans to elope with her love Lysander. However, their plan did not worked out as they have planned. As they escape to the woods Helena, who was once engaged with Demetrius, intrudes and tells the plane of elopement of Lysander and Hermia. Her doing was motivated out of her love for Demetrius and hatred for Hermia as for her Demetrius left Helena. Helena though that she would win his love back, however, Demetrius does contrary and flee to the woods to bar the marriage of Lysander and Hermia.
The climax of the story arrives when a fairy servant, Puck, of the fairy king, Obreon, misunderstands the order of his master and mistakenly poisons Lysander with the love potion. On waking up from his sleep, Lysander sees Helena and falls in love with her. To undo his mistake, Puck, poisons Demetrius and he also falls in love with Helena. In their quest to win the heart of Helena, both men even almost fight with each other; however, Puck separates them by mimicking their voices. In the night, Puck again spread the love potion on Lysander’s eyelids and when he wakes up he again falls in love with Hermia. In the morning, Theseus, discovers the sleeping lovers in the forest and ask them to come back to Athens to be married. The play ends happily, as the lovers get want they want. In the end of the play, all married couples enjoyed watching a play about Pyramus and Thisbe. When the new wed couples go to their beds, fairies come to bless them with their protective charm and disappear. The Puck’s appears in the end and ask the audience for forgiveness. He also urges the audience to remember the all the events that had happed as a dream.
