Bottom's Dream (German: Zettels Traum or ZETTEL’S TRAUM as the author wrote the title) is a novel published in 1970 by West German author Arno Schmidt. Schmidt began writing the novel in December 1963 while he and Hans Wollschläger began to translate the works of Edgar Allan Poe into German. The novel was inspired by James Joyce's novel Finnegans Wake, particularly Schmidt's use of columns (his "SpaltenTechnik"), which Schmidt claimed was borrowed from the Wake.
It shall be called Bottom’s Dream because it hath no bottom. And I will sing it in the latter end of a play before the duke. Peradventure, to make it the more gracious, I shall sing it at her death.

He is confident in his ability to play any, even all, roles in "Pyramus and Thisbe. For example, he says his performance of Pyramus will cause the audience to cry a stormload of tears
Bottom unwittingly makes an idiot of himself, expressing confidence about the wrong things and being ever-willing to explain to others as if they were the ones out of the loop. Still, Bottom's idiocy is almost endearingly innocent. It doesn't seem as though Shakespeare is being malicious by creating a working-class character who's also a bona fide twit. Instead, Bottom is an important character for opening some self-deprecating doors to wonder about the real art and artistry of the theater.

As far as I can tell, Schmidt did not intend Bottom's Dream to be his greatest work, just his biggest. He did not devote the majority of his life to it, unlike Robert Musil with The Man Without Qualities or Uwe Johnson with his magnificent, lation Anniversaries. I’ll call it Bottom’s Dream because it’s so deep that it has no bottom. And I’ll sing it for the duke in the intermission of a play. Or maybe, to make it even more lovely, I’ll sing it when the heroine dies.
