1935: Midsummer Night's Dream
Oberon: "Thou see'st these lovers seek a place to fight. Hie therefore, Robin, overcast the night The starry welkin cover thou anon With drooping fog, as black as Acheron, And lead these testy rivals so astray As one come not within another's way." (III.ii.354-59), Play Title A Midsummer Night's Dream 1935
