In my opinion, I didn’t think Act V was completely necessary of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, but alas it was enjoyable and humorous (at times). It was strange how Shakespeare felt it was so necessary to add this last “tidbit” in when he very well could have concluded his play with a few dialogues more to Act IV. I thought Puck’s line was a great ending to this strange, but great play: “Think but this, and all is mended: That you have but slumbered here, While these visions did appear.” He speaks these words at the neared end of the play and I think they weirdly sum up the entirety of A Midsummer Night’s Dream because exactly what he says is what occurs between the characters. I also find his final lines to be rather enjoyable, like I noticed blogger alexatirapelli mentioned. I think that although I didn’t find this act to be fully necessary that I wouldn’t have preferred it to end any differently. I liked that he concluded with this all being able to be transformed into a dream if the play attendees didn’t quite understand the point of it or didn’t enjoy it much. I overall enjoyed this whole play because although it brought in many characters that were occasionally hard to follow, it also brought together two things that I need in order to be engaged fully in a story line: humor and strange character relationships/actions. I also loved that it was a love based story without all of the “mushy” extras. The characters did what they had to do to fall in love with the right people. I truly enjoyed that aspect.
