The theme of A Midsummer Night's Dream is you should never go betweeen two people that really love eachother. Egeus which is Hermia's father only wanted her to marry a prince like
Demetrius, but
Hermia really loved Lysander instad of Demetrius. I think true love is the theme because because Lysander and Hermia really loved eachother and at the middle of the play both Lysander and Demetrius were mad at her. But then at the end of the play Lysander and Hermia got married. The author did a good job at writing this romantic novel, the book was a true love and then a comedy. One charactor made it really funny because he would mess up and play pranks on people his name was Puck. If the book was in modern day text then i would have understand it better and probably enjoyed the the play better. I recommend this book to anyone that understands Shakespeare and likes plays about true love.
