Product Description

Le Songe d'une nuit d'été (A Midsummer Night's Dream) est une comédie de William Shakespeare écrite entre 1594 et 1595. La première inscription de la pièce au registre des Libraires date du 8 octobre 1600.

C'est une histoire complexe dont l'action se déroule en Grèce et réunit pour mieux les désunir deux couples de jeunes amants, Lysandre, Démétrius, Hélène et Hermia. Hermia veut épouser Lysandre, mais son père, Égée, la destine à Démétrius, dont est amoureuse Hélèna. Lysandre et Hermia s'enfuient dans la forêt, poursuivis par Démétrius, lui-même poursuivi par Hélèna. Pendant ce temps, Obéron, roi des fées, a ordonné à Puck de verser une potion sur les paupières de sa femme, Titania. Il entre dans la forêt avec Puck. Pendant la nuit, la confusion règne.

La scène la plus connue est l'apparition de Bottom, qui porte une tête d'âne, avec Titania, qui par la magie de Puck en est tombée amoureuse.

More About the Author

William Shakespeare was an English poet and playwright, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world's preeminent dramatist. He is often called England's national poet and the "Bard of Avon". His surviving works, including some collaborations, consist of 38 plays, 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and several other poems. His plays have been translated into every major living language and are performed more often than those of any other playwright.

Shakespeare was born in Stratford-upon-Avon in Warwickshire and was baptised on 26 April 1564. Thought to have been educated at the local grammar school, he married Anne Hathaway, with whom he went on to have three children, at the age of eighteen, before moving to London to work in the theatre. Two erotic poems, Venus and Adonis and The Rape of Lucrece were published in 1593 and 1594 and records of his plays begin to appear in 1594 for Richard III and the three parts of Henry VI. Shakespeare's tragic period lasted from around 1600 to 1608, during which period he wrote plays including Hamlet and Othello. The first editions of the sonnets were published in 1609 but evidence suggests that Shakespeare had been writing them for years for a private readership.

Shakespeare spent the last five years of his life in Stratford, by now a wealthy man. He died on 23 April 1616 and was buried in Holy Trinity Church in Stratford. The first collected edition of his works was published in 1623.
