Description
Who dreamt the Midsummer Night's Dream? What were the reactions of the Artisans' relatives to their play-acting activities? The author considers the play from the point of Bottom - and the women as members of the audience. Bottom and his wife are discovered settling down for the night - as twelve o'clock strikes, Bottom dreams a 'most rare vision'. All the Artisan scenes are preserved intact - but here the women also have their say.
