Funny Shakes Essay

900 words - 4 pages

In the two plays written by Shakespeare, The Tempest and A Midsummer Night’s Dream, love is the central theme of each comedy. The outcomes in his two plays incorporate the true meanings that love offers. In contrast, these two plays make the characters operate under different ways. The spirits in the Tempest work for Prospero, while in A Midsummer Night’s Dream the characters in this play do not acknowledge the fairies.

Both stories convey the image of arranged marriage, yet the two stories lead in different directions. Though they convey this image, one play shows the tie between father and daughter, as Miranda (The Tempest) is made to marry Ferdinand. “Surely [it is] a spirit” (Dench, 8).

His magic is used for the betterment of his daughter, Miranda, and also to help himself. His power is used to solve the story right from the beginning and leads on to solve the disputes made earlier in the story.
Despite these differences, the central theme, role of magic in the two, and what message they make are...
