How could we all have overlooked *Romeo and Juliet*?  Must be
summer-time madness, eh?

Of course, that should be "Oberon."  Mea culpa.

By the way, Frank Sidgwick's 1908 book of sources and analogues to MND
may help you.  It's title is, I believe, The Source and Analogues of _A
Midsummer Night's Dream_, and it's at PR2827 .S5 in my university
library.

Sincerely,
