My favorite character in Mid Summers Night Dream is Bottom. Now who would have guessed that the man who is turned into an ass by my next favorite character (because I love naughty little boys too) would be my favorite character. Poor Bottom, not. He gets treated to sweets and treats by the faeries who attend the Queen of the Fae, her majesty Queen Titania. And according to the title, this all happens on mid summers eve.
A love story inside a love story and a comedy inside a conundrum but my I love Shakespeare's view on the fae being like humans, envious, naive, fragile, strong and naughty.
Here is my rendition of Queen Titania's faerie bed with Bottom snoozing while he waits for his love.
Happy Mid Summer's Eve......
