Sympathetic Engagement and Detached Ridicule in The Comedy of Errors And A Midsummer Night's Dream

Auther : Shafik Fayad

The purpose of this paper is to illustrate the development of shakespeare’s dramatic technique in his two comedies: the comedy of Errors, and A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

In the Comedy of Errors the audience hardly ever has a chance to get involved in the action of the play; and very few characters engage our sympathy0if they do, then it is only for a brief space of time, the spectators remain as detached observers deriving much fun from the intrigues and the farcial situations.

By the time Shakespeare wrote A Midsummer Night’s Dream, approximately three years later, farce has been much reduced, to be replaced by a lyricism which fills the audience with wonder, moreover, characters such as Oberon, Puck, and Bottom and their dramy speeches engage our sympathies and linger in our mind long after the play has been read or seen.
