Description of this Book

The course of true love never did run smooth. Demetrius and Lysander love Hermia. Hermia loves Lysander, but is betrothed to Demetrius--much to her dismay. And no one loves Helena, though her heart belongs to Demetrius. It seems that love could never be so complicated! When Hermia and Lysander escape through the forest to elope, Demetrius chases them--and Helena chases him. With the magic of the forest bewitching the hand of fate, perhaps their dreams of love will come true. . . . Beautifully presented for a modern teen audience with both the original play and prose retellings selected from the Your Midsummer Night's Dream writing contest on inkpop.com, this is the must-have edition of William Shakespeare's timeless classic.

Author's Bio

William Shakespeare is the world's greatest ever playwright. Born in 1564, he split his time between Stratford-upon-Avon and London, where he worked as a playwright, poet and actor. In 1582 he married Anne Hathaway. Shakespeare died in 1616 at the age of fifty-two, leaving three children-Susanna, Hamnet and Judith. The rest is silence.
