I was hoping, after our Midsummer Night's Dream thread previously, that when Robert appeared on the scene, I could tie him into the play. I had a certain character in mind, but having read over that character's part, it seems I was being far too unkind to Nick Bottom. (-; He's far too sensible to be compared to this:
"I am excessively fond of a cottage; there is always so much comfort, so much elegance about them...'My dear Courtland,' said I, immediately throwing them all into the fire, 'do not adopt either of them, but by all means build a cottage'...every comfort may be as well enjoyed in a cottage as in the most spacious dwelling."
Even while trying to get his head scratched, Bottom composed himself with far more sense and decorum. (-;
