Shakespeare shows that the fairies only interacts with the humans while they are slipping. For example, when Lysander in act 2 says, “here is my bed: sleep give thee all his rest!” (act 2, scene2.718) And punk drops juice upon Lysanders eyelids. Showing that the fairy world could see everything that is going on in the human world only by interacting with them when they are asleep this includes Bottom as he is awakening after being put under a spell, therefore suggesting he had fallen asleep for the spell to be cast and he was dreaming the whole time, a dream within a dream. This demonstrates that the human world can never see the magic. However, Punk does the same thing to Titania suggesting it doesn’t matter whether you are a human or a fairy magic only works when you are asleep.

Both stories feature a protagonist’s exit from the mundane world into a world of fantasy, and in both stories these protagonists return to their mundane world changed by their experiences in the realm of the marvelous.

“A ‘fairy-story’ is one which touches on or uses Faerie, whatever its own main purpose may be: satire, adventure, morality, fantasy. Faerie itself may perhaps most nearly be translated by Magic — but it is magic of a peculiar mood and power, at the furthest pole from the vulgar devices of the laborious, scientific, magician.

Tolkien 's 1939 essay "On Fairy Stories" In the story ‘The Pied Piper of Hamelin’ when the people of the village refused to pay the piper what they had promised for his services, he took all the children of the
The supernatural is one of the elements of Romanticism. It may not be one of the more major ones such as nature or emotions, but it is a relevant one in Shelley 's novel, Frankenstein. It is very difficult to discuss only one of the traces of the romantic movement in a novel as they are all interconnected.

Furthermore, supernature can also be related to Gothic literature, which makes it hard to identify the exact genre of the novel.
