What Angel Wakes Me?

AMSND-7LJLOQ

All the noise from the terrified Mechanicals and Bottom’s singing wakens Titania. She utters the following line about Bottom:

What angel wakes me from my flow’ry bed? (3.1.60)

What effect would this line have on the audience?

A

Her line would produce stunned silence as the audience looked for a divine being onstage.

B

Her line would provoke anger at the comparison of Bottom to an angel.

C

Her line would induce a moment of prayer and reflection at the mention of an angel.

D

Her line would produce laughter, since the audience can see the grotesque form of Bottom addressed as something divine.

E

Her line would invoke sadness at the beautiful Titania’s fate to fall in love with a monster.
