William Shakespeare's A Midsummer night's dream ( Visual )
2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 1,790 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

4 editions published between 1996 and 2007 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
When the philanthropic, genial Dr. Jekyll becomes intensely in the problems of good and evil and their effects on the nature of man, his deliberations soon drive him into his laboratory. There, he pursues an answer to a question that has become his obsession: can the two opposing forces be separated? His experiments produce an astonishing drug that draws out the evil side of his own nature: the evil Mr. Hyde. At first, an antidote restores the physician to his better self. But once realized, Mr. Hyde grows more and more powerful and resistant to restraints. Ultimately he commits an atrocity which to the mild-mannered doctor would be unthinkable. Inspired by a bad dream, The strange case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde reflects the Victorian preoccupation with science and with questions raised by scientific discoveries
