AMND Reading/Viewing Assignment for 05/11 - 05/15

Watch A Midsummer Night's Dream from Act 3 (59:41), when Puck says, "What hempen homespuns have we swagg’ring here, so near the cradle of the Fairy Queen?" to Act 3, Scene 2 (1:15:09) when Demetrius says, “Look, where thy love comes; yonder is thy dear” before Hermia enters the scene.

Reading/Viewing Guiding Questions

As you read, look for answers to the following questions: (You do not need to write down the answers. But be prepared to join me on Zoom on Thursday knowing the answers.)

  • How does Puck get involved while the mechanicals are practicing their parts for the play? Why?
  • What do the mechanicals, or workmen, do in response to his actions? Why?
  • What does Nick Bottom believe his co-actors are doing?
  • What happens when Titania wakes up?
