A Midsummer Night's Dream is perhaps Shakespeare's most popular play, particularly as a first introduction to Shakespeare for children--filled as it is with a marvelous mixture of aristocrats, workers, and fairies. For the Oxford Shakespeare edition, Peter Holland's introduction looks atdreams and dreamers, tracing the materials out of which Shakespeare constructs his world of night and shadows.
