Upon seeing his wife, Oberon calls her a,“rash wanton,” which translates to a hasty willful creature (2.1.63). Oberon belittles Titania with words and actions in an attempt to gain not only the upper hand, but the Indian boy. It presents his capability to set aside emotion in order to get his way. When Titania refuses to hand over the Indian boy, Oberon becomes furious and plots his revenge by putting love potion on her eye (2.1.179-183). Oberon’s motive proves his willingness to perform any action for his benefit, even if it takes away from his wife.

During Sebastian and Olivia’s exchange in Act IV Scene I, Shakespeare uses slapstick comedy and contrast, irony, theme, rhyming quatrain, and blank verse in order to lay the foundation of their identities and compatibility. To start the scene, Olivia aggressively berates Sir Toby, calling him names like “Ungracious wretch” (45) before gracefully and kindly addressing Sebastian as “gentle friend” (49) after a near fight.
