Midsummer Night's Eve
|Tonight is midsummer night's eve (June 23rd), so in honor, here's my favorite line from A Midsummer Night's Dream:|
Bottom: A calendar, a calendar! look in the almanac; find out moonshine, find out moonshine.I love Bottom. Can't say the same for the rest of the play, which is not among my favorites. A friend of mine once said that he always wished there was a Restoration adaptation of it called The Rude Mechanicals that just cut the rest. I find myself recalling that comment every time I teach it.
Here's a shameless shill for comments if I ever saw one, but a related note nonetheless: what's your favorite line in this play? or in Shakespeare? or your favorite in a non-Shakespearean play that deserves more attention?
