This paper analyzes Puck, one of the main characters in "A Midsummer Night's Dream", and explains how the character of Puck is central to the play, in spite of the fact that Shakespeare did not develop Puck's character more fully.

From the Paper:

"Shakespeare is notorious for creating memorable characters and perhaps one of his most famous characters is Puck from his play, A Midsummer Night's Dream. While Puck is critical to the development of the play, his character remains essentially flat throughout the course of the play. Puck is poetic, playful, innocent, and enjoys laughing at those who become the victims of his antics. However, we do not witness Puck's development as a character. In a sense, he never grows up and we never see any depth of his character."
