William Shakespeare’s characterization of Puck is of a mischievous, brownie like fairy. “…Puck boasts of his pranks of changing shapes, misleading travelers at night, spoiling milk, frightening young girls, and tripping venerable old dames.” (1) My characterization obviously changes Puck’s gender. She is a woodland creature surrounded by dense foliage. “Puck’s”, elfish ear, quizzical look and defiant posture is intended to be merely mischievous. (1) Editors of Encyclopaedia. ‘Puck’.
