'The course of true love never did run smooth;'

'About the wood go swifter than the wind,
And Helena of Troy look thou find.
All fancy-sick she is and pale of cheer
With sighs of love that costs the fresh blood dear.
By some illusion see thou bring her here.
I'll charm his eyes against she do appear ...'


The entire play in Quick Modern [UK] English - for a fast-paced read!

Shakespeare's best-loved play, A Midsummer Night's Dream endures as an obvious choice for outdoor theatre on a warm summer evening. The marriage of Theseus to Hippolyta serves as a backdrop to tangled loves, amateur dramatics, and an argument between the Fairy Queen and King, Titania and Oberon, with events spilling over from their Fairy Kingdom into the real world of the forest. The course of true love never did run smooth!

Written in 1595-1596, it was an early success for The Bard. Its appeal is easy to see, and it truly has stood the test of time, and is regularly performed all over the world.

And now this masterpiece from the greatest playwright of them all is brought to you as a full-colour adaptation, featuring the entire play in quick modern English.

As with all Classical Comics' Shakespeare titles the period is faithful to the Bard's intentions, and there is a choice of three text versions.

'No longer need anyone say "Shakespeare is boring"! The illustrations are right up to the minute and guaranteed to appeal to today's students. A great resource for school libraries and I highly recommend the use of Classical Comics to entice students into the world of our great classical authors' [Parents in Touch]

'I found the book personally very useful as having read the school edition and struggling slightly to understand it, it was nice to be given this text to improve and clarify my knowledge of the storyline, characters and meaning' [Chelsea, English Student]

'Classical Comics provide schools with a fabulous resource. Every school should have copies and every school library NEEDS these publications. It is perfect for guided reading and provides a non reductive access point to the classics of literature for pupils who would not otherwise engage with such texts. A brilliant resource, beautifully executed' [Alan Peat, Educational consultant]
