From Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream".Titania, the queen of the fairies, has been put under the spell of a magic love potion that causes her to fall in love with the first thing she sees when she wakens. Somewhere in the forest, a foolish actor named Nick Bottom has been set under a spell which gave him a donkey's head, and he hasn't noticed. Titania happened to wake up and see poor Bottom with an ass's nole upon his head.. and the love potion explains the rest. I led them on in this distracted fear And left sweet Pyramus translated there. When in that moment so it came to pass, Titania waked and straightway loved an ass.
