Multiple Story Lines Within One Play Shakespeare was known for seldom having one plot line within a story, and it is no different in A Midsummer Nights Dream, King Lear, and The Tempest . In each of these plays, Shakespeare intertwines multiple plots into the play, making for more exciting and filling works. In A Midsummer Nights Dream , there are four different stories, three are about love, that are all involved with one another to create the play. In King Lear , there is a motif of the relationship between children and parents, through two stories in this play. Then in The Tempest , there are unique interactions between certain characters that create different stories throughout the whole play. These plays all exhibit a unique attribute about Shakespearean plays of multiple sub-plot story lines that help enhance the main story line. A Midsummer Nights Dream has fours different stories throughout the play. Three of these stories are about love and they are between Theseus and Hippolyta, the “lovers” Lysander/ Hermia and Demitrus/ Helena, and then Oberon and Titania. The last story is the one of the artisans. All of these stories give different insight to the characters.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
