Twelve by Shakespeare in 2012 January: One Down, Eleven to Go

Twelve by Shakespeare in 2012 has finished A Midsummer Night's Dream.  Although the number of participants was unfortunately small, we had some interesting discussions.  A feather-light comedy, over almost before it begins, all conflicts resolved quickly, with plenty of silliness and without lasting repercussions, it does leave the impression of having woken from a dream.  The different types of love were discussed, and the pairs of lovers were compared and contrasted, as were the characters of Puck and Bottom.  Consensus: fun.  Much Ado About Nothing is next on the agenda for February.
