The BBC Television Shakespeare is a series of British television adaptations of the plays of William Shakespeare , created by Cedric Messina and broadcast by BBC Television. Transmitted in the UK from 3 December 1978 to 27 April 1985, the series spanned seven seasons and thirty-seven episodes.

Development began in 1975 when Messina saw that the grounds of Glamis Castle would make a perfect location for an adaptation of Shakespeare's As You Like It for the Play of the Month series. Upon returning to London, however, he had come to envision an entire series devoted exclusively to the dramatic works of Shakespeare. When he encountered a less than enthusiastic response from the BBC's departmental heads, Messina bypassed the usual channels and took his idea directly to the top of the BBC hierarchy, who greenlighted the show. Experiencing financial, logistical and creative problems in the early days of production, Messina persevered and served as executive producer for two years. When he was replaced by Jonathan Miller at the start of season three, the show experienced something of a creative renaissance as strictures on the directors' interpretations of the plays were loosened, a policy continued under Shaun Sutton , who took over as executive producer for seasons five, six and seven. By the end of its run, the series had proved both a ratings and a financial success.

    They both show the difficulties of adolescent love through their different life experiences (Helena being ignored by Demetrius, Hermia s issue with being forced to abjure to the law or, if she doesn t obey her father s will ,to be sentenced to death.They also show the importance of female friendship and gender expectations of that time in Athens(women were expected to obey men.)I think if you have notes or even from the book you might be able to elaborate from here.Separate the parts into introduction(name of book,explanation/stating topic.then begin on the comparison between Hermia and Helena.(hermia was a dark skinned person, short in stature,vicious (the type to lash out if insulted( if you can, ignore this part ,not sure.) etc while Helena was light hair and skin,not of the type to fight, of gentle countenance (find out more differences and comparisons etc). BTW you didn t make it clear whether it was the play or a summary of it.Think about how the information can be separated into different parts and then write a conclusion. This may not be correct but its even if its just a little bit,hope it helped.(and yes it was hurried.)

    The story of Pyramus and Thisbe offers a very subtle return to a couple of the main elements of A Midsummer Night’s Dream: lovers caught up in misunderstanding and sorrow enhanced by the darkness of night. Like the main story of the outer play, the inner play consists of a tragic premise made comical by the actors. The craftsmen’s unintentionally goofy portrayal of the woe of Pyramus and Thisbe makes the melodramatic romantic entanglements of the young Athenian lovers seem even more comical.

    However, it is important to recognize as well that the inherent structure of a play-within-a-play allows Shakespeare to show off his talent by inserting a gem of pure comedy. The conflicts have been resolved and a happy ending procured for all; the performance, thus, has no impact on the plot. Rather, the craftsmen’s hilarious bungling of the heavy tragedy allows the audience, and the melodramatic Athenian lovers, to laugh and take delight in the spectacle of the play.

    1. What is the significance of the settings of the play? What are the major characteristics of each setting (the Duke''''s palace, Quince''''s cottage, and the fairy-enchanted woods)? What significance do forests have in other literary works you''''re familiar with? What about urban settings? What rules and values apply in the different settings? Why is the story set in ancient Greece would it have been as effective in contemporary England?

    CliffsNotes study guides are written by real teachers and professors, so no matter what you''''re studying, CliffsNotes can ease your homework headaches and help you score high on exams.

    In the tragedy Hamlet and the comedy A Midsummer Night's Dream, Shakespeare presents two plays that are very different in context but quite similar in foundation. Both plays examine reality throughout the narrative structure. In Hamlet, reality is.

    A Midsummer Night's Dream begins in the city that was, to the Renaissance imagination, the center of ancient Greek civilization. (Romanticized) Athens stands as a testament to what human beings know and are able to know. But throughout this play,.

    Puck and Bottom are the two fools of A Midsummer Night''''s Dream. Puck is a fool in the traditional sense of the word—it is his job to entertain Oberon, the fairy king, with his tricks and jokes. Bottom, however, is a fool in the contemporary sense of the word, as his stupidity often gets in the way of what he is trying to accomplish. However, both characters, despite their "foolishness," serve practical functions in the play and also make several intelligent observations about life and love.

    Puck makes his entrance into the play in the next scene, Act II, scene i. It is Puck who explains the fight between Titania and Oberon, and his speech helps the fairy he is talking to recognize him. The fairy, who knows Puck''''s reputation, goes on to list just a few of Puck''''s pranks:

    Topic #1
    It is only in the last few decades that the position of women in society has been reexamined. From reading Shakespeare’s plays, we have some information about their negative treatment in the 1500s and 1600s. What, precisely, was this negative treatment of women to which we no longer adhere?

    Outline
    I. Thesis Statement: In A Midsummer Night’s Dream, William Shakespeare demonstrates the negative treatment women received from society in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.

    I m not sure I understand your question. Shouldn t your two body paragraphs be developing your thesis--i.e. they will have the same subject, just developing it further, and supporting your ideas with quotations? Could you clarify your question? ____________ OK, I m still not 100% sure I understand what you re trying to do, but I take it that you are supposed to introduce other subjects into the essay that relate to your central idea. The comparision between lunatics, lovers, and poets may offer you something. That s six combinations right there (in groups of two) that you might go deeper into. You could spend a paragraph talking about lunatics and poets, and a paragraph talking about poets and lovers, for example. Does that help at all?
