Demetrius changes his love twice: Helena to Hermia, afterward it was Hermia to Helena. Lysander changes his love for Helena to Hermia, and next Hermia from Helena rather quickly too. The way Oberon drugs his wife for selfish reasons and never eventually tells her that she had been drugged, shows how unreliable he is with his love.

This is because in the beginning he blindly agreed to marry Romeo and Juliet later bringing consequences in the play. Friar Lawrence is guilty because he gave the potion to Juliet and from that event and forward events started taking a horrible twist.

Another example is in Act 4/ Scene 1, Bottom receives service from four fairies and he gets to tell them what to do: “Get your weapons in your hand and kill me a red-hipped humble-bee.../ Scratch my head Peaseblossom” (4.1.7-12). This shows that Bottom appears to be in control. It may appear that both of these characters are in control, but they are actually not. Robin was able to find Bottom and turn his head to of a donkey’s, only because he was following orders from Oberon.
Think about it awhile. Think about it tonight. And think about this: If I can’t trust you to do this little thing for me, how can I trust you anymore here in the store?’ Full of regret. ‘Don’t you see?

Shakespeare writes, “And even for that do I love you the more.”(Act 2.1 Line 209). In this scene Helena explains how much she loves Lysander. However she is only in love with him, due to the love potion: “And with the juice of this I’ll streak her eyes and make her full of hateful fantasies” (Act 2.1 Line 265). As this conversation takes place Oberon reveals that he has a plan to sabotage Titania.
Parts of real life and being humans are very well combined with fantasy and adventure. The story of the Tempest represents revenge and forgiveness, with a world of magic mixed in.

He thought he had been treated unfairly and ended up setting everything

The Friar is also the man who devised the plan for Juliet to take a sleeping potion. This in turn makes everyone including Romeo think she has passed on. In act 4 scene 1 the Friar states “take though this vial being in bed, and this distilled liquor drink thou off” (4.1., 94-95). This is Friar Lawrence telling Juliet the plan that will eventually lead to death of the lovers.
Shakespeare uses this quote, “May all to Athens back again repair / And think no more of this night's accidents / But as the fierce vexation of a dream” (IV.i.68-70) to resolve the conflict of A Midsummer’s Night Dream, and to absolve Puck and Oberon of any blame for their mischief. Oberon has caused so much trouble just to get the Indian child from Titania, so when he actually became successful in receiving the boy, he no longer had any issues with his wife. Now he and Puck are desperately trying to fix the mess that they made by Bottom also returned to his normal state and solving the lovers problem by neatly pairing them off when they wake up. Oberon also woke Titania up from her enchantment, restoring the harmony in the world.
In William Shakespeare's play, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, two characters, Helena and Hermia are not only best friends, but also foils of each other. Appearance wise, Hermia is short, saying herself that she is “so dwarfish and so low” (Ⅲ.ⅱ.303), whereas Helena is very tall. When Lysander confessed his love to Helena instead of Hermia, Hermia thought it was because of Helena’s “height, forsooth she hath prevailed with him.” (Ⅲ.ⅱ.301). Furthermore, Hermia has a dark complexion while Helena has a fair complexion.
The Picture of Dorian Gray Literary Essay Foreshadowing is a literary device used as a warning or indication of a future event, this literary technique is ever present in the demise of Dorian Gray. In Oscar Wilde’s novel The Picture of Dorian Gray foreshadowing establishes the true depravity that exists within his relationships. Dorian establishes few healthy relationships throughout the novel, and Basil Hallward accurately foreshadows the effects of Dorians true enemy. Dorians relationship with his “true love” Sybil Vane, is in many ways foreshadowed by her brother James, and leads many to see what Dorian Gray’s personality is behind just his looks. Everyone has hostile relationships and the strikingly beautiful Dorian Gray is no exception, but few foreshadow his true depravity as well as Basil Hallward.
THESIS STATEMENT In A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Shakespeare modeled the relationships between Hermia and Egeus, Titania and Oberon, and Theseus and Hippolyta after the Elizabethan hierarchy, yet challenged the traditional gender roles through his dominant female characters.

Throughout history, authors of fairy tales have used morals and themes to convey the meanings of their work. Though there are an infinite amount of themes and topics within these stories, one major theme that is consistent in several tales is the theme of control or empowerment. Examples of tales that accurately portray this theme are Cinderella, Hansel and Gretel, and Bluebeard. In CInderella, a daughter is neglected by her father, tortured by her step-family, and oppressed by a prince. In the story of Hansel and Gretel, two children are abandoned by their starving parents and kidnapped by a cannibalistic witch, and must find a way out of their misery alone.
