AbstractThis paper aims at discussing the role of the minor characters in William Shakespeare's Twelfth Night and A Midsummer Night's Dream. The study assumes that without the first group of minor characters, associated with Olivia, the play Twelfth Night would lose much of its humor, and without the second group, associated with Sebastian, the play would fall apart. On the other hand, in Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream minor characters play important roles, without them, the action dose not ran smoothly, or does not ran at all.
The paper falls into three sections. Section one deals with the role of each minor character in Twelfth Night.
Section two focuses on the minor characters in A Midsummer Night's Dream.
Section three is a conclusion which sums up the findings of the study.
