Comment:    Re: SHK 19.0581 Bottom's Dream

A delightful animated piece, Bottom's Dream, by John Canemaker, uses many 
elements from MND to produce a phantasmagoric version of the  play.  It's 
available on DVD and well worth searching out.

Perhaps the reference you have in mind is the article by Weston A. Gui, 
"Bottom's Dream," _American Imago_, 9 (1952), 251-305. There is a brief summary 
of the article in the Carroll and Williams Annotated Bibliography for MND 
(Garland: NY, 1986).
