The Boomerang of Love

Lysander's Mixtape

By Daniel Cheng

Love Will Always Find a Way

Throughout the whole play, A Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare, the characters are trying to win each other's love, and though it may start a little unsuccessful, everything comes together and the lovebirds finally join. William Shakespeare delivers this message very clearly to the human experience by using weird words that do not exist, but can deliver the meaning better than regular words. I personally think that this play is very unrealistic because in the world today, a lot of loving people don't end up being with the one of their dreams.
