Character Study


Character traits

Character Traits

  • List 3 to 5 character traits

  • With a partner:

    • Find the scenes where Bottom appears. Look in each scene for examples and/or lines that prove each of the three character traits. (Make sure to take careful notes!)


Objectives

Objectives

  • What does he want?

  • Does this change in the course of the play?

  • Make a list of his objectives.

  • Find an example and/or line to prove each one.


Style

Style

  • How does Bottom talk? Verse or prose?

    • If verse – what form? (Tetrameter? Pentameter? Etc.)

  • Is he consistent, or does he change verse forms in certain situations? (Make note of your conclusions)

  • In what style does he talk – simple, fancy, or what?

  • Write down a line that is a good example.


For homework tonight

For homework tonight…

  • Bottom is stubborn, bossy, and vain, but he is valued by his friends. Describe the “Bottom” in your life. Draw specific parallels between the person you know and Bottom in A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

    • If you’d like to type this, I will certainly not stop you, but it does not NEED to be typed.

Grab a piece of paper and get into your Acting Companies. *Directors for today, pick up your company’s folder.

Once you’re there, decide who’s a 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5…(I’ll tell you why in a minute…)

Directors: Lead a 5-minute discussion on the following questions with your Acting Company and compile the findings on a piece of paper to turn in.

  • What did each person or pair come up with?

  • What kind of person is Bottom?

  • What Hollywood actor (besides the one you’ve seen play him in the film we’ve watched) do you think would do a good job playing Bottom?
