Think about what you know of A Midsummer Night's Dream so far:
-The play was written by Shakespeare around 1600.
-It takes place in Athens, Greece
-There are people in love, magic spells, fairies, and mix-ups...
- A lot of the play happens in the woods...
But why?

Think About and Answer:

1. What is the significance of the settings of the play?

2. What significance do forests have in other literary works you're familiar with (books, movies, shows...?)

3. The story set in ancient Greece — how would it have been different if it was set in modern-day England? Or even in Shakespeare's time?
