A Midsummer Night's Dream Act 2 Summary
Robin Goodfellow, also called Puck, meets with a fairy who serves Queen Titania. She tells him that Titania is coming to the woods outside of Athens that night. Puck informs the fairy that it would be better if Titania and his master, Oberon , did not meet since they only quarrel when they do so. Seconds later both Oberon and Titania arrive onstage, both accompanied by their respective fairy followers. Immediately they begin an argument, with both of them accusing each other of infidelity and jealousy.
In the forest, two fairies, one a servant of Titania, the other a servant of Oberon, meet by chance in a glade. Titania, he says, has taken a little Indian prince as her attendant, and the boy is so beautiful that Oberon wishes to make him his knight. Titania, however, refuses to give the boy up. Puck admits his identity and describes some of the tricks he plays on mortals. The two are interrupted when Oberon enters from one side of the glade, followed by a train of attendants.
