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
Twelfth Night is a play about confusion, love triangles, and goofing around. 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.
Other examples are, when he makes Titania fall in love with Bottom, and when he tries to fix the problem Puck made. 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. A few days prior, he was love sick about Rosaline, and confessing his love about her, but the moment he set eyes on Juliet, he was struck with love once again.
He also didn’t realize that touching Curley’s wife’s hair was wrong until he accidentally murdered her. The bad things he does are unintentional, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t wrong. 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.
The use of dramatic irony aids in the character development of Romeo by showing his impatient and impulsive nature that will eventually lead to tragedy. 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.
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. Each character has his or her own viewpoint, thus encounters the enchantment in an unexpected way.
Shakespeare uses disguise in the play to show several confusions and internal conflicts between the characters, proving how malleable and deluded some human attractions can be. 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.
The last reason to blame Friar Lawrence is because he married the two in secrecy. 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,
