A Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare
The "Oxford School Shakespeare" is a series which aims to help students understand and enjoy Shakespeare's plays. As well as the complete and unabridged text, each play in the series has an extensive range of students' notes. These include detailed and clear explanations of difficult words and passages, a synopsis of the plot, summaries of individual scenes, and notes on the main characters. Also included is a wide range of questions and activities for work in class, together with the historical background to Shakespeare's England, a brief biography of Shakespeare, and a complete list of his plays. For this edition, the text of the play, the notes and the introductory matter have all been revised so as to make them clearer and more accessible.
