Like much of Shakespeare’s work, they contain beautiful language and rhyming patterns. Romeo and Juliet is very similar Midsummer Night’s Dream because in act one both texts discuss daughters with prearranged marriages, in act two Romeo and Lysander jump in and out of love, and in act three both plays contain terrible misconceptions. Clearly the plays contain similar content and ideas, but they are equally entertaining. Works Cited Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare

Deception, Trickery, and Concealment in Much Ado about Nothing and Macbeth William Shakespeare's classic romantic comedy, Much Ado about Nothing and tragic history, Macbeth revolve around the theme of deception, trickery, and concealment. There are portrayals within these two plays that depict deception and trickery as merely harmless and even beneficial. In some cases the characters are thoroughly masked in their lies; for ill or well, they are hiding who they truly are. In other cases, the person they attempt to hide is merely obscured, the masks being only a slight deterrent from their real personalities. Sometimes they are harmless diversions; sometimes they are even beneficial tools to be utilized for one's friends.
