Scary Fairies

http://www.baltimoreshakespeare.org/Muse/ScaryFairies.htm I found this brief article interesting.  It’s all about how, prior to Shakespeare, “fairies” were actually scary little beasts that people feared.  It also puts Puck/Robin Goodfellow into a bit of context, for anybody why in the beginning of Dream one of the characters says “Hey, I know you!  You’re Robin Goodfellow!”  He is not a Shakespeare creation, although Shakespeare appears to made some changes to his story.
