Description

Hermia's father has given her a seemingly impossible decision: marry Demetrius, a man she doesn't love, or die. Instead, she decides to take fate into her own hands and run off with her true love, Lysander. Demetrius sets off into the forest to find them, followed by Helena, a young woman smitten with Demetrius, whom he constantly ignores. But the forest is filled with fairies—including the mischievous Puck—whose magic just might spoil everything. This is an unabridged version of William Shakespeare's multilayered comedy, first published in England in 1600.

        October 2, 1996
        Coville follows up his version of The Tempest (see p. 84) with a retelling of another of Shakespeare's most popular plays. The fundamental story of magic, mischief and the trials and tribulations of love is preserved through well-chosen use of the original language and Coville's heady prose ("The queen... saw the ass-headed monstrosity through magic-drenched eyes"). Major plot lines are clearly and concisely rendered, but it is the portrayal of the various levels of humor-from Bottom's buffoonery to Puck's gleeful magic-making-that really captures the essence of the play. Nolan's (Dinosaur Dream) sumptuous, painterly watercolors highlight the theatrical setting of the spellbound wood. Gnarled, mossy trees provide the backdrop for a cast of unusually youthful lovers, gossamer-winged fairies (which nod at Rackham's famous interpretations) and a truly puckish Puck. A first-rate entree to the Bard. Ages 7-up.

      • content: kathead - So this book was really hard to understand at first. Not only was it a play, but is it also a story. There are four main characters, Lysander who is in love with Hermia. Hermia who is in love with Lysander. Demetrius, who is in love with Hermia as well. And then poor Helena, who is in love with Demetrius. As the young lovers, Hermia and Lysander flee from their homes to go and marry somewhere else, so that Hermia's father cannot object, Helena finds out, but promises not to tell anyone. Then, after the two lovers have left, Helena goes to Demetrius and tells him about their plan. She hoped that he would be upset and marry her instead, but it doesn't work out that way. Instead he chases after the couple into the forest. The rest? You'll have to find that out for yourself.
