William Shakespeare's A Midsummer night's dream by Michael Hoffman( Visual )

3 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in English and held by 1,887 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the village of Monte Athena in Italy at the turn of the 19th century, necklines are high, parents are rigid, and marriage is seldom a matter of love. Thus, Demetrius and Lysander both want Hermia but she only has eyes for Lysander, while her father wants only Demetrius for his son-in-law. Poor Helena burns hot for Demetrius, who avoids her like the plague. Meanwhile, fairy king Oberon is engaged in a battle of wits with his queen, Titania, and has commanded a trick of Puck, which naturally goes horribly wrong. They are all in the enchanted wood on a midsummer's eve, coming out in the end charged with a gift from the fairies--an enchanted eroticism--that sweeps them away to bed chambers and weddings. The film celebrates love's ability to alter reality while quietly acknowledging that any attempt to portray the feeling of love ultimately falls short

7 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This new collection of essays takes as its theme the reception of Rome's greatest poet in a time of profound cultural change. Amid the rise of Christianity, the changing status of the city of Rome, and the emergence of new governing classes, Vergil is seen to have remained a bedrock of Roman education and identity. Romane Memento considers the different ways in which Vergil was read, understood and appropriated - by poets, commentators, Church fathers, orators and historians." "Romane memento will be of interest to literary critics and cultural historians of late Antiquity, and also to Vergilianists unfamiliar with the literature of the fourth century."--Jacket
