When thinking about the ancient power of the Greek polis Sparta, there are many things that come to mind, any many things that come into question. One of the first topics that usually comes to mind is where did Sparta come from, and how did they rise to be the most powerful polis in all of Greece. When this topic arises, the name Lycurgus is usually associated with some part of the creation story. The name Lycurgus is the traditional name of the founder of the Spartan constitution (founder 2016). From everything that has been compiled on Spartan history, the earliest mention of Lycurgus is in Herodotus.
This story begins with Euphiletos trying to defend himself in court. He has a man named Lysias write his defense speech. In this speech the events of what went on in the past few weeks that led up to him killing Eratosthenes. He pretty much states that he was very gullible and his wife simply tricked him. He trusted her in every way and believed that she would act properly.
Hermia is strong-willed and independent, her father wants her to marry a man she doesn't wanna be with or loved, she wants to do it on her own, and why would she wanna marry someone she has no connection to. The only reason why should marry him is that her father said that if she didn't marry Demetrius he would have her killed. She then plans to run away with Lysander after she gets told she would either be killed or have to be a nun if she doesn't marry Demetrius. Helena a friend, then walks into the room and says how Hermia is beautiful and her eyes are like stars, Helena sounds very jealous that Demetrius wants Hermia instead of her. But in the forest, Hermia and Lysander get lost and so they stop because Hermia gets tired and almost passes
Demetrius follows them into the forest with Hellena. Titania and Oberon argue in the forest. Oberon vows to make her pay by putting a love herb on Titania 's eyes. Oberon tells Puck to put a love potion on Demutruis but puts it on Lyslander by mistake. Lyslander falls for Hellena because she wakes him up.
The exposition of the story would be finding out that Hermia and Lysander love each other, but Demetrius loves Hermia. Helena loves Demetrius, but no one loves Helena. Egeus also wants his daughter killed if she doesn't follow through of marrying Demetrius. The rising action may be when Titania and Oberon, the fairies, fight. Lysander and Hermia run off and get lost in the woods while Demetrius and Helena follow them.
In Shakespeare 's’ A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Helena, Hermia, Demetrius and Lysander go through quite a lot of trouble before they emerge from the woods with their problems all but resolved. While Helena, Hermia, and Demetrius all remark that they remember the events of their night in the woods, even if they do think it a dream. Yet, Lysander never implies that he knows what his other three companions are talking about. Robin Goodfellow also implies that the herb he places in Lysander’s eye will cause him to forget everything that happened while he had the juice in his eye. When Robin Goodfellow put the herb that reversed the love juice’s properties in Lysander’s eye, it had the side effect of causing Lysander to forget everything that happened the night before.
The exposition is when Theseus and Hippolyta are preparing for their wedding. The rising action is when Lysander and Hermia want to get married, but Hermia's father wants her to marry Demetrius. Hermia and Lysander run away with their love.. The climax is when Puck accidentally places the love potion into the eyes of Demetrius, which causes him to fall in love with Helena. Helena starts to believe that Demetrius and Lysander are mocking her.
The exposition is set in Athens, Greece, there is a mix of love, fear and success in the town. Hippolyta and Theseus are preparing for their lavish wedding. Lysander and Hermia are in love, and Demetrius is in love with a woman named Hermia. There is a girl named Helena, who is single. In the rising action, Hermia and Lysander are in love, but Egeus wants Hermia to be married to Demetrius instead, so he gets someone named Theseus to push for their marraige.
The climax is essentially a huge mess. Lysander becomes afflicted with the potion as well making him fall in love with Helena rather than his dear Hermia, Demetrius then also get “poisoned” and fall in love with Helena as well. Meanwhile, Helena is distraught as she believes
Act I, Scene i Theseus and Hippolyta were planning their wedding which was in four days. Hermia was willing to marry Lysander, but Egeus her father wanted her to marry Demetrius. So Hermia and Lysander plan to run away to the woods and elope, Then Helena chose to tell Demetrius that Hermia and Lysander plan to run away to the woods together and get married outside Athens. Demetrius used to specialize Helena from anyone else but now he doesn't. Helena is trying to send Demetrius after Hermia and Lysander to try to earn him back.
The play we read in class took place in Athens. So basically Theseus is the duke of Athens and is planning to marry a girl named Hippolyta which is the queen of the amazons and decided to make it awesome by planning a big festival for his marriage. Then egeus goes to Theseus with his daughter Hermia and the guy she likes Lysander but her suitor is Demetrius… Then egeus (the snitch/HErmias Father) told Theseus that Hermia doesn’t want to marry Demetrius but instead she wants to marry Lysander
The climax occurs when Lysander and Demetrius fight, and also Hermia and Helena fight. The falling action is when Puck leads Demetrius and Lysander in opposite directions. Hermia and Helena's fight seems to be irreparable. The deouement is when Oberon releases Titania from the spell.
1. The genre of this story could be multiple things. The genres I believe works the best are fiction, and fairytale 2. The expositions I believes is the bond of King and daughter. I think that you can tell that the father loves his daughters and want to make sure he knows everything he should know about them.
“Pyramus and Thisbe” tells the story of two young lovers who are forbidden to be together due to the fact that their families are enemies. William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream tells the story of the chaos and craziness that surrounds the days prior to Theseus and Hippolyta’s wedding. In both of these stories, the reader is able to find several similarities and differences.
When Puck mistakes Lysander for Demetrius, he wakes up to Helena and falls in love. To try and fix the situation, Oberon puts the juice on Demetrius’s eyes and soon after wakes up to Helena. Puck is filled with joy as the entertainment of the four young lovers comes together: “Shall we their fond pageant see? /Lord what these mortals be!” (III.ii.114-115).
