    Abstract: "Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream has brought several vital issues into the fore, such as
    the function of dream, the idea of representation and the establishment of epistemology. These issues
    have been raised because they were closely related to the essential texture of Western culture, in which
    an epistemology based on visuality has constituted the most part of it. A visuality-oriented
    epistemology had worked its effects upon numerous literary works, drama performances in particular,
    which emphasize the importance of “look” and the idea of representation. To make these points clearer,
    this paper makes use of Sophocles’ Oedipus Rex as a point of departure for Western culture to show
    how the tradition it had made was challenged by A Midsummer Night’s Dream in terms of dream,
    representation and epistemology. By this exploration, this paper aims to highlight that a close and
    repeated reading of Shakespeare’s plays would bring out different observations, and this alternative
    reading is a solid illustration that a great work of art is immortal in that it keeps inviting possible
    interpretations as time goes by, and its complexity and diversity are all the more obvious."
