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

Perceptions of Love in Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare Bearing in mind that 'Romeo and Juliet´ is one of the most famous love stories ever written, examine Shakespeare´s presentation of 'love´ referring closely to the language used by different characters. The play 'Romeo and Juliet´ presents true love in the form of 'star-crossed lovers´ and just as their love is depicted as eternal, the play itself has endured for years. There have been many adaptations of the play in the forms of books, films, ballets and plays. Several books have been loosely based on the story, involving young lovers of different religion or different race who are not permitted to be together. These are always very popular because people want to find true love.
While the language may have confused some of today’s teenagers the majority understood the story. The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet is a timeless, and romantic story that everyone at some point can relate to. This is not a fairytale it doesn’t have a happy ending, but it is a love story. Romeo and Juliet is a play that can be updated time and time again without ever loosing its original luster, and brilliance. I can only hope that when my children are teenagers another inspired director will bring this love story to life again.

The two texts of comparison are both written by the one who was "...widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language (Wikipedia.org).” William Shakespeare is known to have certain qualities in some novels that reflect other texts that he has written. The play, The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, by William Shakespeare, and the text, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, also by William Shakespeare, there are many qualities that resemble each other in each act, but there are also differences, such as a prologue inclusion, both speak of love to not happen, new love emerging, and leaving an initial place than where the play began. To begin, the fact that Romeo and Juliet foreshadows what is later to come in the play is a topic in itself, but there is also the matter of where in Act I, there is “love” that will never happen. In The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, the love is of course to be the county Paris to Juliet. It is clearly shown in the quote, “...The valiant County Paris seeks you for his love (Act I:iii).” There is a similar problem with the text of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
Although many Shakespearean plays are very similar to one another, two stand out from the rest as sharing a great deal in common. Specific, solid parallels can be drawn between Shakespeare's plays "A Midsummer Night's Dream" and "Romeo and Juliet." The themes and characters are remarkably similar in many aspects. Firstly, both plays highlight the stereotypical young lovers - Hermia and Lysander in "A Midsummer Night's Dream" and Romeo and Juliet in "Romeo and Juliet." Secondly, both plays are very ambiguously categorized.
