William Shakespeare's play A Midsummer Night's Dream is a classic love story about two young would-be couples, and an aspiring actor named Bottom who end up being caught in the middle of a lovers quarrel between Oberon, the king of the fairies and Titania, his Queen. They all find themselves tangled in a web of chaos, administered by Oberon and his sidekick Puck. The chaotic love story ensues, as Puck administers a secret love potion that causes the lovers to switch partners as if they have fallen in love at first sight. William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream is purely magical because it transports you deep into the enchanted forests of Athens near the secret home of the fairies, where water nymphs, satyrs and fairies make a dream-like fantasy become reality.
Just like how Michael Hoffman's A Midsummer Night's Dream is based on a dream world, so are these little magical creatures named fairies. Fairies go by many different nicknames, but the name Fay's is the early form of the word fairy. There are many different kinds of faeriekith nature spirits, which have been brought to life by the essence of Celtic-mythology. Fairies may not exist in reality but these magical nature spirits do exist in our childhood dreams. This dream world brings magic and fantasy into our lives in the form of imaginary small beings with magical powers. These magical little creatures not only live in Never-never land or enchanted forests but they also live in our imagination where fairies, water nymphs and satyrs sing and dance in our minds.
We have all grown up watching little fairies sprinkle fairy dust on people in the movies, and watched them in amazement as they magically disappear into mid air without a trace. At a young age we only wished we could experience the fairies magical powers first hand, but as we get older we start to detach are selves from magic and fantasy, especially fairies.
