Subject: The Tempest vs A Midsummer Night's Dream - Love and Magic
I need the help of the list. I was asked for a favour by a good friend.
In both The Tempest and A Midsummer Night's Dream is a lot of magic and
witchcraft. In the two plays, love couples are affected by different
kinds of supernatural powers.
Are there any sources where I can find the two plays compared especially
with a look an love and magic?
I heard also about a paper by Thomas Whitaker: Holding Up The Mirror:
Deception as Revelation In The Theater. Social Research Vol. 63. 1996,
but I could not found it in a library. It should contain answers to my
question. Does somebody know where I can find it (online or offline)?
Thank you very much in advance.
Happy Easter holidays to everybody!
