Why is Puck a memorable character in A Midsummer Night's Dream? What makes him so likable to people that they remember him?

Expert Answers

An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles

Three words: "teenager" and "magic powers." Puck is like every kid who ever wished he or she could make people do things he wanted, could mess with their heads, could make them run into trees, etc. Puck is the trickster side of us that wants to have lots of power not to do great things, but to get away with things. Puck is memorable because he embodies that desire. He's a fun sneak.
