In Shakespeares time, the term comedy did not necessarily denote something funny or amusing. Rather, through such plays such as A Midsummer Nights Dream and The Merchant of Venice, the playwright examines other defining characteristics of comedic dramathe social interactions of common folks and a focus on the contradictions inherent in everyday life. Readers explore the major themes of Shakespearean comedies, which have enchanted readers and theater-goers alike for centuries.
