Chesterton This Norton Critical Edition includes: • Shakespeare’s most popular comedy—with its unforgettable love triangles, woodland fairies, and magic—based on Grace Ioppolo’s conflated text (Q1 with F1 variants) and accompanied by her introduction, note on the text, and explanatory annotations. • Five illustrations. • Seven sources for the play, including those by Geoffrey Chaucer, Plutarch, and Lucius Apuleius. • Fifteen wide-ranging critical assessments, including ones by Jan Kott, Margo Hendricks, and Peter Brook. • Adaptations of A Midsummer Night’s Dream by Robert Cox and Henry Purcell and Elkanah Settle. • A Selected Bibliography.
