The speed demons of A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter in a book


A Midsummer Night’s Dream is fascinated by speed. Both in its dialogue, and in its stage action, it loves to have things and people moving as fast as is imaginable: so fast, indeed, that they might even take flight. To contextualize this play’s obsession with speed, one might need to think about early modern experiences of rapid motion.
