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. Oberon would be willing to misuse his power to trick his queen into loving a horrible beast just for obtaining something that he wants He even mocks his queen by saying “there lies your love.” (Act IV,scene, Page 79).

Hermia is one of many important lead roles in A Midsummer Night's Dream, and is the center of a “love square” between herself, Lysander, Demetrius, and Helena. Hermia is selfish and will sacrifice her family, morals, and reputation in her seemingly all-consuming love for Lysander. Her extreme loyalty to her lover is displayed when they run away to the magic forest to be married, and although they do in the end, Hermia sacrifices much of her emotional health in her submissive following of Lysander. Hermia’s devotion and trust of Lysander is displayed when her point of view differs from the reader.
