  • CBS – The Magic Art?

    Posted by Shannon Love on September 15th, 2004 (All posts by )

    In Neil Gaimen’s Sandman graphic novel Dream Country, Morpheus, the anthropomorphization of dreams, commissions William Shakespeare to write a play about Fairies. Shakespeare writes A Midsummer Night’s Dream and his troupe premiers the play one summer night on a hillside before the court of the real Auberon and Titania. The Fey have never seen a play before and the real Puck, watching his portrayal on stage, exclaims.

    “This is magnificent — and it is true! It never happened; yet it is still true. What magic art is this?”

    This is a fair statement of the magic of the theater but is that we want from a news service?
