Shakespeare Blog Entry #5

For this blog entry I’ve chosen the creative question:

“Be Hippolyta: tell us what you really think about the imagination and what you really think about Theseus’ point of view.”

How can someone deny imagination? Relegate something so magical to the corner of their minds and forget about it like a long lost relic? Imagination is what drives us, it’s what helps us strive ever forward. Without imagination would we ever sail the seas? Would man or woman ever create fine works of art? To say imagination is useless is to deny one’s essence of creation. As much as I love Theseus I cannot neigh, will not ever understand his disdain for imagination. Perhaps it is the rule of law that clouds imagination from his mind? Maybe without so much responsibility, he would have time to let his mind wander into the magical realm?
