Midsummer Nights DreamAnalysing Puck



Considered one of Shakespeare\'s best plays, "A midsummer\'s nights Dream"
reads more like a very intense dream as it entices you
with the thought of fairies and magical elements of
what seems to be, but really isnt.
If one player or character is centrral to all this, I would say that it would
be Puck. Puck is signifigant to the plot, tone, and the meaning. He does this by
working his way throughout the play in each of the above mentioned themes, entwining
his mischief into the lives of others.
This play can be summed up by the last stanza of the play, spoken by Puck
"If we shadows have offended
think but this and all is mended:
that you have slumb\'red here and idle theme
No more yeilding but a dream gentles do not reprehend:
IF you pardon, we will mend
ans as i am an honest Puck,
if we have unearned luck
Now scape the serpents tongue
we will make amends ere long;
else the Puck al lair call
Give me your hands, if wwe be friends
and Robin shall restore amends.
