Take the donkey spell off this man, and just like you did with the couples, have him remember this night as only a dream.”(16) Oberon also controls Puck by making him take the donkey spell off of Bottom. Controlling people to feel power will make problems in the
Conversely, Oberon makes decisions with unpredictable outcomes and watches as they play out before him. He watches Helena’s humiliation as she confesses her unwanted love for Demetrius,“thou shalt fly him, and he shall seek thy love,” (2.1.246). Out of pity, Oberon tells Puck to put love potion on Demetrius’ eyes, forcing Demetrius to fall in love with Helena- if all goes as planned. He plans for Demetrius to beg for Helena’s love even though Demetrius is in love with Hermia (3.2.87-91). Once again, Oberon’s careless thinking manages to put him in a pickle, leading to more drama.
A Midsummer Night’s Dream dealt with the universal theme of love and its complications: lust, disappointment, confusion, and marriage, featuring three interlocking plots, connected by a celebration of the wedding of Theseus, Duke of Athens and the Amazonian queen Hippolyta. The play rotates around different forms of love, two of them being love for friendship (Philia) and romantic (Eros) or true love. Love is the most important theme of the play and the asymmetrical love seen in the play between the four Athenians and romantic encounters cause conflict within the play. There is a strong friendship love between two characters, Hermia and Helena. These two ladies are regarded as sisters as they have grown up together always having each other’s
Othello is accused of using magic to woo his future wife, merely because of his racial disparity, and therefore is called a “pagan” (Shakespeare, 2016, Act 1 Scene 1). The only thing Othello possesses, which comes anywhere near magic, is his talent for story-telling, which earns him Desdemona´s love. Magic also reappears as a topic when Desdemona 's handkerchief is nowhere to be found; Othello puts his trust and belief in the symbolism and magic of the
Hop Frog on the other hand becomes insane from drinking, thus, straying from the alcoholic beverages. The king actually finds amusement from him drinking. Forth, the king is not mature and plays to many jokes. “But the king loved his practical jokes” (Poe 4). The king, playing jokes and doing other childish behavior, leads Hop Frog to think of the idea of the monkey costumes.
In order to purge the havoc that had been created amongst the lovers had been exorcised by the intervener himself, Puck where placing the love potion on Lysander’s eyes would make him fall back in love with Hermia. Although the love potion has resolved the love feud amongst the Athenians, the exorcism which had been casted onto Demetrius had not been
86) that reinforces male dominance and female submission. As a young girl, these movies shaped my thoughts in a way that made me believe I needed a man to rescue me, protect me, make me feel beautiful and complete me. Vickery (2009) states that “romantic scripts such as ‘prince charming’ and ‘waiting for the one’ are carefully embedded within so many mediated scripts of sexuality” (p. 50). For example: Cinderella is a damsel in distress and when the Prince saves her, her life is fulfilled and everything falls into place. The story of Cinderella lead me to believe two things: in order to have a better life, I must have a boyfriend and that makeovers fix everything.
After everyone ran away from Bottom, he started singing. His singing woke up Titania, causing her to see him when she woke. Since the magic flower juice has the power to make you fall in love with whoever you first see, Titania fell in love with Bottom. Titania _______ “Come sit thee down upon this flowery bed while I thy amiable cheeks do coy, and stick musk roses in thy sleek, smooth head, and kiss thy fair large ears, my gentle joy” (Shakespeare 4.1.1-4). Titania would never normally fall in love with an ass, but she didn’t know she was under a love spell.

Instead of planning it out they do this because they have
Romeo and Juliet is a classic romance story by William Shakespeare about two star-crossed lovers, Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet, falling in love. Nevertheless, their two families have a vendetta against each other, making it difficult for Romeo and Juliet to ever truly be together. This romantic set-up has been used multiple times after Shakespeare, such as West Side Story. The story itself has very romantic and light-hearted moments, but a lot of issues that aren’t paid as much attention to can be calamitous. Despite a lot of the play exploring the positives and the beauty of love and romance, the real lessons from the story are found in the primitive and belligerent nature of the characters.
