    The main role of the fairies in William Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" is to introduce the magic into the story that both causes problems and helps to bring about a happy ending. They give a surreal character to the play and contrast some of the more coarse characters in the story. Fairies appeared in literature and poetry. One that is well remembered is William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream; where fairies cast their magic upon the Athenians.. The Brothers Grimm included fairies in their first edition, but decided this was not authentically German and altered the language in later editions, changing each “Fee” (fairy) to an enchantress or wise woman.

In the play "The Tempest" there is a character called Ariel who resembles a fairy. I always think it's a she, but in the play it's referred to as "he". Ariel can become invisible, cast spells.

FOLK-LORE OF SHAKESPEARE. CHAPTER I. FAIRIES. The wealth of Shakespeare's luxuriant imagination and glowing language seems to have been poured forth in the graphic accounts which he has given us of the fairy tribe. Indeed, the profusion of poetic imagery with which he has so richly clad his fairy characters is unrivalled, and the "Midsummer Night's Dream" holds a unique position in so.

Shakespeare uses the magic of the fairies to symbolize the mystic power of love and to create a dreamlike world. Magic is what starts the chaos and conflict of the Athenian lovers but magic is also what resolves the issues.
