  • Romeo And Juliet And A Midsummer Night's Dream Analysis

    Extended Response - Shakespeare INTRO William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet and A Midsummer Night’s Dream are plays that share similar ideologies and representations despite them being a tragedy and a comedy respectively. The similarities are predominantly that of the father daughter relationship, as well as love, marriage and rebellion. Romeo and Juliet is a story about star crossed lovers whose families are feuding, with a plot line that focuses on Juliet and her father Capulet. A Midsummer Night’s Dream is also a story based on young love, with many love triangles. But there is also a part to the play that focuses on Hermia’s relationship with her father Egus. Despite the representation of teenage rebellion in these plays, Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet and A Midsummer Night’s Dream ultimately reinforces the traditional patriarchal relationship between a father and daughter.
