There are two types of worlds in A Midsummer Night's Dream, the human world and the pastoral magical world. The fairy world has all manner of sprites, nymphs, ferries...They have their own social codes, often being mischievous.They can fly around, use potions, trick and be tricked... Humans in the fairy world let go of their inhibitions. They frequently, with the "help" of fairies, explore repressed desires. The fairy world has the same jealousies and lust at the human world, Oberon and Tatiana being an example.They however don't follow the same cause and effect circumstances as the human world.
