Titania - Queen of the Fairies

            A Midsummer Night's Dream, written by William Shakespeare during the year 1594-95 is a popular comedy play about the thrilling adventures, trials and experiences of four young lovers, a group of amateur actors and their interactions with woodland faeries. Furthermore, it is a comedy about love and relationships and its complications where lust, disappointment, confusion, marriage, jealousy and wrath are portrayed. Titania, the wife of Oberon, is the gracious queen of the fairies raising a young Indian boy who plays a significant role in this play. Moreover, the last scene in which the mechanicals present a fumbling, hilarious version of "Pyramus and Thisbe" at the wedding of Theseus, duke of Athens and Hippolyta, queen of the Amazons, is an important part of the play as it gives it a purely joyful, comedic ending. Additionally, this is where Pyramus and Thisbe die for each other's love, while the three couples, happily united, comment on their performance. After the play, Titania, Oberon and the other fairies briefly emerge to ensure future harmony and bless the newly wedded couples while Puck remains to ask the audience for its forgiveness and approval and to remember the play as though it had all been a dream. .
             Titania, the glorious queen, is portrayed as a strong, powerful and dominating figure in the play who has recently returned from India to bless the marriage of Theseus and Hippolyta. In addition she makes a short and brief entrance in the final act, where she is seen singing and dancing with Oberon while blessing the couples. However, she has a much wider role in the whole play as the marital conflict between Titania and Oberon is central to the plot as it would drive the confusions between the lovers due to the love portion. Additionally, Titania's objective in the play is to keep the Indian child safe and secure as it was given to her, from her close mortal friend who died.
