A lovely quote for you tonight: “I know a bank where the wild thyme blows, Where oxlips and the nodding violet grows, Quite over-canopied with luscious woodbine, With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine”. A beautiful description and so easy to memorise that most people recognise this instantly. This is why Midsummer is the most popular play to see performed. Oberon speaks this line to Puck after his quarrel with Titania. He asks Puck to retrieve a special purple flower that was hit with Cupid’s bow. Once Puck returns with the flower, he explains to Puck where Titania sleeps. Without google maps, they need to use description! He asks Puck to find her sleeping and streak her eyes with the juice of this flower.. when she wakes, she will fall in love with the first thing she sees! They are hoping it will be a ridiculous animal. Once he has had his laugh at her.. he can then ask her again for the boy they have been fighting over (more info on that soon). It is an act of revenge & jealousy... but in the end it works.
