A Midsummer Night's Dream (Manga Shakespeare)
Illustrated by leading UK Manga artists, The Manga Shakespeare Collection keys in on the growing popularity of manga worldwide, and presents Shakespeare's classic works in a highly visual and dynamic form. Ã�Â�The course of true love never did run smoothÃ�Â�. This romantic comedy is set in an enchanted moonlit forest inhabited by meddlesome fairies, four young Athenian lovers and a troupe of amateur actors. ShakespeareÃ�Â�s enduring characters are set adrift in present day Athensbut a present with a massive difference-an alternative history. Rigid class systems and Ã�Â�god givenÃ�Â� monarchies of the past have not been lost. Modern technologies meet ancient tradition; and the citizens of Athens are frustrated by continuing restrictions and hierarchies. Only the forest, home to fairies and fey spirits can offer the illicit lovers what they seek.
