Puck Tells Tales

Posted in Acting

The first in an occasional series of Puck performances from ‘A Midsummer Nights Dream’. Here he gives us the gossip on Fairy Royalty: Titania and Oberon.

This little speech is taken from Act II scene 1

ROBIN GOODFELLOW

The king doth keep his revels here to-night: 385
Take heed the queen come not within his sight;
For Oberon is passing fell and wrath,
Because that she as her attendant hath
A lovely boy, stolen from an Indian king;
She never had so sweet a changeling; 390
And jealous Oberon would have the child
Knight of his train, to trace the forests wild;
But she perforce withholds the loved boy,
Crowns him with flowers and makes him all her joy:
And now they never meet in grove or green, 395
By fountain clear, or spangled starlight sheen,
But, they do square, that all their elves for fear
Creep into acorn-cups and hide them there.

What you think? Let me know below.
