I discuss a solar-energy based allegory I found in this play.
Like a player after a performance, I am also holding out my hat and asking you for your support---please buy my novel "Juliet is the Sun" to help fund my research into solar enegy themes in more of Shakespeare's plays. (Thank you very much!!)
My academic paper entitled "Juliet is the sun" (also on Slideshare and Academia)revealed the sun character was Juliet in "Romeo and Juliet". In "A Midsummer Night's Dream", the sun figure is Bottom the Weaver.
The solar energy concept was probably developed by Shakespeare using the ideas of Giordano Bruno's Art of Memory.
