Monday's Riddle: Will You See the Dream?

Hello, Riddlers! Can you guess our theme this week? I didn't realize how many of his words are used today. ; ) ~ F

Pickpocketing London sets the scene, that's where you can see a dream. Stories play in disguise; crowds cheer on dramatic cries. Words became one man's game, soon to be a household name. Juggling meanings, he'd sort them out, listening to people talk and shout. When a theater opened up, they'd grab a snack and fill their cup. Most desired tricks and mirth, and they got their money's worth. But who was this creative man, telling tales by ink and hand?

Who am I referring to? Stop by Wednesday for the answer. 

I gave you a clue!

A midsummer night. ;)

  1. Well I was thinking of Shakespeare until I saw the picture but that seems much earlier than his time. More Merlin. So I have no idea.

    1. Nuts! I shoulda looked at the picture. It was the pickpocketing that made me think Dickens, but how could it not be Shakespeare?

  3. The picture must be from A Midsummer Night’s dream (mustn’t it?)so most definitely Shakespeare

  8. Well, if it's Midsummer Night's Dream, then Shakespeare it is. I was all for Dickens until I saw the picture.
