  • William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. This is the official website for the Fox Searchlight movie version. It's a really pretty, Flash-y sight, with a trailer, information about the cast, plus some actual educational material. Since the movie didn't do all that well, though, I doubt it will be up for long.
  • Enjoying "A Midsummer Night's Dream" by William Shakespeare. This is Ed Friedlander's "Midsummer" page, a great all-around resource.
  • A Midsummer Night's Dream Hypertext. Offered on the University of Northern British Columbia, this is a really well-annotated hypertext version of the play, complete with a glossary and mythological references in the play.
  • The School of Midsummer Dreams. Created by students for a ThinkQuest competition, this site contains a lot of great resources, including an e-text of the play and a JavaScript- based quiz. There's also support for students to interact, offering up their own essays and artworks to the project.
