The structural elements in A Midsummer Night’s dream

In A Midsummer Night’s Dream, the situation of the lovers is resolved in Act IV with Act V devoted to the play-within-a-play of Pyramus and Thisbe. This represents a departure from the five-act structure. Why do you think Shakespeare focuses on the play-within-a-play rather than continuing to concentrate on the situation of the Athenian lovers or Oberon and Titania? How does the play-within-a-play and the good-natured humor of it summarize and resolve the issues presented in A Midsummer Night’s Dream?
