A Midsummer Night's Dream is SHakespeare's most popular play. It is also his funniest. The play is about love. All the characters in the play, both the human ones and the not so human ones are in love. Or want to be in love. Or try to be in love. Or try to stop others from being in love. Or become jealous, or hateful, or just generally mixed up because of love. "The course of true love never did run smooth" pretty well summarizes the actions of the play, and it is Puck who has the bestdescription of human beings when they are caughtup in the magic of this strange emotion. "Lord what fool these mortals be."
