Bottom: Nothing, good mounsieur, but to help Cavalery Cobweb to scratch. I must to the barber’s, monsieur; for methinks I am marvellous hairy about the face; and I am such a tender ass, if my hair do but tickle me, I must scratch. Titania: What, wilt thou hear some music, my sweet love? Bottom: I have a reasonable good ear in music. Let’s have the tongs and the bones. Titania: Or say, sweet love, what thou desirest to eat. Bottom: Truly, a peck of provender: I could munch your good dry oats. Methinks I have a great desire to a bottle of hay: good hay, sweet hay, hath no fellow.

QQQ List of Characters in A Midsummer Night’s Dream q Theseus, duke of Athens, has the authority to determine the future of the play’s human lovers. He is himself newly in love with Hippolyta, whose land he has won in a recent battle, and with whom he is engaged to be married. His wisdom is reflected in the respect that the other characters accord him. Hippolyta, queen of the Amazons, has a relatively small role in the play. We learn that Theseus has conquered both her country and her heart. Her role reverses from one of (presumed) capability and authority to one of passivity, although her vehement criticism of the craftsmen’s play suggests, ironically, a greater role than is ostensible.

As Theseus’ bride-to-be, she is half of one love relationship that has not suffered from confusion and mishap. Hermia is a young Athenian woman who wishes to marry Lysander, although her father instead has arranged for her to marry Demetrius. Described as short, dark, spirited, and willful, Hermia expresses her choice of husband to Theseus, who decrees that she must obey her father’s will, become a nun, or die. Again showing a fierce streak of determination, she agrees to Lysander’s plan to elope, and when the two become lost in the woods, the play’s “midsummer madness” begins.
