Puck is Oberon’s servant, the king of the fairies, and when Oberon sees how Demetrius is mistreating Helena, he orders Puck to spread some of the love potion on his eyelids. However, Puck encounter’s Hermia and Lysander and he thinks that he is Demetrius and spreads the juice on his eyelids instead of Demetrius’s eyelids. Unfortunately, Lysander upon waking up sees Helena and falls deeply in love with her abandoning Hermia. Hermia believes Helena has acted to steal Lysander’s love from her. Hermia is appalled at Helena, threatening to scratch her eyes
A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a play about love, humor, and fairies that can alter feelings quite easily. Shakespeare had to use irony as a very big element in both comedies. The use of irony creates confusion which illustrates Shakespeare’s point about the madness of love and how messy life can get. In Twelfth Night dramatic irony was used as comic relief and to help the audience understand how the love triangle worked.
The most significant issue that Oberon caused was when he tried to make the lovers fall in love with each other. He trusted Puck and made him have the responsibility to put the love potion on Demetrius. However, Puck being Puck, he makes a mistake and puts it on Lysander instead. In Act 2 Scene 1, Oberon says to Puck, “A sweet Athenian lady is in love With a disdainful youth: anoint his eyes”(Line 260~265).
While Romeo was known for his impulsiveness, it didn 't go to help him out later on. Romeo had been convinced to sneak into the Capulet 's party, and would then lock eyes with a girl that he will forever be in love with. An analysis of Romeo’s character in the play Romeo and Juliet, reveals that his fatal flaw was his impulsiveness due to him falling in love and marrying Juliet, becoming a murder after he had killed Tybalt and Paris, and him killing himself. One reason why Romeo was impulsive was because he had fallen in love with Juliet at first sight.
That is one reason why I think George felt like he needed to kill Lennie. George knew that Lennie just kept making horrible mistakes that got
One example of an individual being different from their group is Friar Lawrence. In Romeo and Juliet, Friar Lawrence plays a major role by devising a plan to end the strife between the Montagues and the Capulets. Part of his plan involves making and then giving Juliet a potion that will make her appear dead, but really she is asleep and will awake after a long period of time. Friars were known to be religious and devout men of God, but Friar Lawrence has knowledge of creating a special potion. This shows that Friar Lawrence is not the same as his group because of his knowledge of mysticism.
Also, the detail "no letters...from the friar" (page 917) and "lie with thee tonight" (page 917) show situational irony. Situational irony is shown through the letter, which explained all of the details of Friar Lawrence 's plan, failing to be delivered to Romeo. This is situational irony because Romeo was not aware that Juliet had taken a sleeping potion from the Friar to fake her death so that she would not be forced to marry Paris. The use of situational irony helps with the development of Romeo 's character by demonstrating Romeo 's melodramatic disposition along with his harmful tendency to overreact. While irony assisted notably in character development, conflict helped to develop Romeo 's character to an even
Enchantment is the delightful string that goes through the woven artwork of A Midsummer Night 's Dream. Enchantment is about the powerful components of the mythic and fairy world (like Cupid 's bolts on a starry night), but on the other hand it 's a less complex, more normal compel. There 's the enchantment of affection, the enchantment of the morning dew, and even the enchantment of verse and craftsmanship. The play stresses point of view and leads the peruser on to see the world as a better place through each of the characters ' eyes.
Shakespeare uses Viola (Cesario) as an example of a mechanism that can throw internal conflicts into temporary chaos. Viola willingly faces whatever comes in her way. Her love for Duke Orsino seems too constant and true, unlike the other characters in the play. The temporary chaos of the play is when Viola falls in love with Orsino, who falls in love with Olivia, who on the other hand falls in love with Viola’s disguise, Cesario. This love triangle is very complicated as none of them realize that Cesario is a woman, making this an internal conflict for Viola, as she cannot ‘truly’ love whom she wants.
Friar Lawrence made a big mistake that he could have avoided himself, if only he had thought out his plan better. He trusted Juliet with a potion to make her look dead just so she wouldn’t have to marry Paris. Friar Lawrence shows he is irresponsible by saying the quote, “If, rather than to marry Paris,
The person to blame for Romeo and Juliet’s death is Friar Laurence because he kept their secret and helped them be together. He was also the one who married them in hopes of ending the feud between the Capulets and Montagues. He also made many mistakes that caused his plan for Romeo and Juliet to go wrong. He trusted someone to deliver a note of great importance to Romeo, gave potion to Juliet, and he fled Juliet’s tomb instead of trying to help her. All of these mistakes would not have happened if Friar thought out his plan a little more.
If Tybalt had not killed Mercutio, Romeo would not have gotten upset with Tybalt. When people found out about Tybalt being killed by Romeo, the Prince banished him from Verona. Since he gets banished it is harder for him to see Juliet, which also made it hard for the news about her being in a deep sleep to reach Romeo. These are my reasons on why Tybalt should also be to blame for the two
Romeo’s obsession with love started the chain of events leading to all six deaths. Romeo acts before he thinks, causing the deaths to take place. Some people may argue that it’s not his fault because he can’t help how he feels. This is an invalid argument because, while he may not be able to control how he feels, he is able to control his actions and he chose to do all the things he did. Other people argue that Benvolio is to blame because he instructed Romeo to go to the Capulets’ party, but this argument is weak because Romeo didn’t have to agree to go.
“The blame Game” If i would have to pick any character in the book who caused all the problems i would have to say it was Romeo. I’m saying it’s romeo because he kept the marriage between him and juliet a secret, he killed tybalt, and he was very hasty. Friar laurence was responsible for marrying Romeo and Juliet. The nurse and them three was the only one’s that knew about it. If they wouldn’t have never kept the marriage a secret the prince wouldn’t have Romeo banned from the town and Romeo and Juliet could’ve lived happily ever after.
Despite the Friar’s warnings, Romeo still went along with the marriage. Some may think that Friar Lawrence is a bigger part of Romeo and Juliet’s deaths than Romeo is because the Friar would rather end the Montague- Capulet feud than keep the two lovers together. All in all his plans to end the feud with Juliet drinking the poison fails with Romeo and Juliet dying. This argument doesn’t consider how sad the Friar was when he found out about the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. He is found crying by one of the watchmen of the graveyard: “Here is a friar that trembles, sighs, and weeps” (5.3.191).
