The dark, dense, and mysterious forest scenery creates a dreamlike setting for the nights events and characters. The fairies interactions with one another and interference with the Athenians also adds to this fairy-tale dream. The townsmen and the young lovers affected by the spell and potions believe the night’s events are too strange to be true. Surely a lowly Athenian could not have been doted on by a fairy queen while bearing a donkey head. Besides, a dream seems the only possible explanation for Lysander to not love Hermia and for Demetrius to not love Helena.
“A Midsummer Night’s Dream” by William Shakespeare is a play that explores the differing representation of the two main settings. The city is seen as the “real” world where there are issues and resolutions that are rational, whilst the forest is seen as the “realm of dreams and imagination” and is where humans don’t have jurisdiction over what happens. This difference in worlds is shown when the protagonists act against their taught social and gender normalities when in the forest. The disparity between these two settings is reinforced when the fairies are present in the forest, with their actions having large impacts on the other protagonists. In the play the city is seen as real due to laws that are introduced that were most likely enforced
Hunting has a deeper meaning to some people and to take that away from them is in some ways inhumane. In addition, the detrimental wildlife issues that would emerge if hunting were no longer an option to keep animal populations under control would increase significantly. The idea of keeping hunting alive is crucial to keep our wildlife safe. Hunting may not apply to all people in the world, but it has to be done. In today’s world there is no other possible way to manage our wildlife in such an effective manner as we do it now.
Lysander’s Eros love and determination for Hermia ultimately brings the two together which supports true love as being very strong. This over protective love shown by Egeus and the Law are both obstacles that result in the friendship and love between them not running
Based on the extract from Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare, this particular scene took place in the woods at the outskirts of Athens. This scene shows the conversation between Oberon and Titania, the King and Queen of the Fairies. Oberon is insistent about Titania giving over the little changeling Indian boy to him which she refuses strongly. This results in Oberon being vexed and orders Puck to fetch him the love juice and pour it into Titania’s eyes while she is sleeping out of spite. Prior to this scene, we witness the conversation between Puck and the fairies, the latter being warned regarding the possible conflict between Oberon and Titania.
Magic dictates the actions of the characters as it influences their emotions, is used underhandedly used to achieve selfish desires, and convolutes the plot through the addition of odd events and misunderstandings to ultimately act as a method offor resolution. The emotions of the characters are altered by a love enchantment which serves as a catalyst forto developing challenges and eventual tranquility. Lysander and Hermia, two young lovers, decide to run away and get married against Egeus’s wish for her to marry Demetrius whom Helena is in love with. Magic changes Lysander’s feelings toward Helena into love to the extent that he says, “Stay, gentle Helena; hear my excuse:/My love, my life, my soul, fair Helena!” (Ⅲ, ii, 245-246). Magic is used to change the object of affection from Hermia to Helena for Lysander, thus causing newfound conflicts with the other characters confused by his sudden switch in
God is the ultimate representation of good and light. Macbeth broke his bond with God and that naturally torments and paranoids him throughout the play. However, he calls upon the night, the time and place for evil, to destroy these thoughts of remorse and to fight of his conscience. Macbeth extended with his corrupt thoughts: “ Light thickens, and the crow Makes wing to the rocky wood; Good things of day begin to troop and drowse, Whiles night’s black agents to their preys do rouse.” (Act 3, Scene 2) Light becomes ‘thicker’ when it gets dark, since it’s harder to see when the sun goes down and when it becomes completely dark. The crow, a symbol of evil and darkness, goes about its night while the good creatures are fast asleep.
The words “bad” and “evil” are correlated with one another as if they go hand in hand. However, the only parallels are the negative connotations that each word carry. Each word sends a different message, and in Henry the fourth Shakespeare shows these differences using theft and usurpation. This is shown through dramatic scenes through the entirety of the play. To have a better understanding of the words bad and evil; the definition for the word bad is of poor quality; inferior or detective and definition of the word evil is profoundly immoral and malevolent.
An unknown author once said, “Some people create their own storms, then get upset when it rains.” Irony can be seen in three different ways, which include dramatic, verbal, and situational irony. Verbal irony is when the opposite of what is meant, is said. Dramatic irony is when the audience or some characters know something that others don’t. Situational irony is when when the opposite of what you expect to happen, happens. During the play A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Hermia and Lysander were in love with each other when a major event happened and changes how they felt about each other.
