Bottom the weaver is a take-charge sort of fellow, and a great stage ham who wishes to play all the parts he can in Quince’s play.
In the end, he agrees to stick to Pyramus only. Beyond this, he finds some problems in the script and suggests the way to mend them. Given an ass’s head by Puck, he does not realize it in the faintest. Despite his stagey pretensions, he is an honest, down-to-earth man, and though confused by Titania’s intention is perfectly courteous and friendly to the fairies she set to serve him. He talks enough that Titania has the fairies render him dumb. He is more interested in having a good meal, listening to rural music, conversing with the fairies and having a nap than sleeping with Titania. Waking back in his normal form, he recalls his night as a dream of such intensity that he wishes to have Quince turn it to a ballad. He is beloved by his fellows.
