A Midsummer Night's Dream(2006)
(A book in the Shakespeare's Tales Retold series)
A novel by Beverley Birch
As midsummer approaches, no one seems to be able to think straight about love. Not Helena hopelessly pursuing Demetrius, not the workmen rehearsing a romantic play for the celebrations, nor the Fairy King and Queen in their angry rivalry. Only the magic of midsummer's night can resolve this emotional madness. A comic story of confused lovers, pedantic actors, and jealous fairies, A Midsummer Night's Dream contains some of the most memorable characters in English literature. This short and accessible retelling captures the style of Shakespeare's original language.
