Puck


Quick Reference

Another name for Robin Goodfellow; more generally (from the Old English period), puck meant a mischievous and evil sprite. The use of the name for one particular spirit seems to derive from the character in Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream (1600), and has been reinforced by Kipling's Puck of Pook's Hill (1906).
