Comment:    RE: SHK 19.0570 Bottom's Dream

 >I've been asked by a colleague whether the play A Midsummer Night's
 >Dream has ever been equated with the dream from which Bottom awakens
 >in 4.1 of the play, the one that he intends to have Peter Quince turn into a
 >ballet. I was pretty sure that I had heard this argument before, but a search
 >of "Bottom's Dream" in the World Shakespeare Bibliography did not allow me
 >to identify any sources that discuss this idea. Can anyone point me toward a
 >previous treatment of this notion?
