The wildwood, where Midsummer takes place, is an entity of its own. Here, CB Sherlock experiences fairies over and over again; Literary nonsense. The wildwood not only houses the fairies. The mechanicals camp. Lovers find shelter as they travel to Athens. Much happens under its boughs ---and the woods become image.
The forest is the set of the play---the trees abound. Dragonflies, June beetles, butterflies and fireflies flit through the pages as the fairies flit through the play.
