Midsummer 101

This week  we learn that "A Midsummer Night's Dream" is layered like an artichoke; the Rhetorical Device of the Week is alliteration; the Burbage Break is about the nebulous chain of custody of a text (aka early modern print culture); Jess and Aubrey try (again) and fail (again) to summarize the play in under five minutes. We play "Line Roulette" and Jess attempts to argue how nuts encapsulate the meaning behind the play. And, spoiler alert: "the text is a lie, and nothing is real," and there is *definitely* a dog in Midsummer.
