The comedy in A Midsummer Night's Dream comes from a variety of sources : the lovers, the fairies, Pucky, the rude mechanicals, and the fairy King and Queen. But the cause for these comedic happenings comes from the interaction between the fairy world and the real world. Puck mixing up the lovers' and putting the juice on the wrong eyes creates a hilarious scene between Hermia and Helena.
