Abstract

In my paper I examine the close relationship between Shakespeare’s Love’s Labour’s Lost and A Midsummer Night’s Dream. I intend to show that these two comedies are more than just similar to each other and that their relation needs to be described. After presenting the critics’ notes on the similarities, I will deal with resemblance between them concerning the female characters, the same imageries built around them and the correspondence of traditions. In this essay I check five possible interpretations to describe the relationship between the two plays. Anatomizing the relationship between these two comedies, I will highlight the possible role a lost drama called Love’s Labour’s Won could have played.
