Poem of the act I of \"Romeo and Juliet\" by William Shakespeare. The carpenter squirrel and the old weevil narrate in detail the construction of Queen Mab´s carriage with long spider legs, cricket bones, and moon beams. When the carriage is ready, the fly—Queen Mab´s coachman—speaks. His story includes the voyages through the dreams of different dreamers, and a preview of the next stop: the edge of the reader´s bed. The story introduces fantasy images of Celtic tradition in Shakespeare´s work. Sponsored by Fondo Cultura B.A., Ministry of Culture of de Government of the City of Buenos Aires.
