An unknown author once said, “Some people create their own storms, then get upset when it rains.” Irony can be seen in three different ways, which include dramatic, verbal, and situational irony. Verbal irony is when the opposite of what is meant, is said. Dramatic irony is when the audience or some characters know something that others don’t. Situational irony is when when the opposite of what you expect to happen, happens. During the play A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Hermia and Lysander were in love with each other when a major event happened and changes how they felt about each other.
Based on the extract from Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare, this particular scene took place in the woods at the outskirts of Athens. This scene shows the conversation between Oberon and Titania, the King and Queen of the Fairies. Oberon is insistent about Titania giving over the little changeling Indian boy to him which she refuses strongly. This results in Oberon being vexed and orders Puck to fetch him the love juice and pour it into Titania’s eyes while she is sleeping out of spite. Prior to this scene, we witness the conversation between Puck and the fairies, the latter being warned regarding the possible conflict between Oberon and Titania.
The comedic play written by William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, follows a set of characters afflicted by magic as they intertwine paths while tryingand try to navigate through the night before Theseus and Hippolyta’s wedding. Helena, Hermia, Lysander, and Demetrius are four young lovers caught in a love predicament. Similarly, the fairy king Oberon and fairy queen Titania bicker over custody of an Indian boy. During their feuds, Athenian craftsmen attempt to practice the play Pyramus and Thisbe in celebration for Theseus’s wedding, but some events turn astray. Magic dictates the actions of the characters as it influences their emotions, is used underhandedly used to achieve selfish desires, and convolutes the plot through the addition of odd events and misunderstandings to ultimately act as a method offor resolution.
Although it has been a subject of numerous critics and analyses, A Midnight Summer Dream is almost impossible to be critically analyzed, its beauty is omnipresent and can’t be overseen. It is a comedy of love, as Benedetto Croce indicates (Kennedy, 1999, p.386-387). William Hazlitt (1845) wrote „The reading of this play is like wandering in a groove by moonlight: the descriptions breathe sweetness-like odors thrown from beds of flowers” (p.87). “In a play constructed along Shakespeare's lines (or nowadays in movie, novel, or short story) outward actions and their resulting incidents do indeed flow from the inward goals of character, but such goals are neither always in harmony with each other, nor with outward behaviour. Insofar as there are discrepancies characters become complex, of the kind that Forster calls "round," much more like ourselves or the people we know!” (Oatley, 2006,

The selected passage is an extract of Act 5 Scene 5 from The Tragedy of Macbeth written by the world’s famous dramatist William Shakespeare (1564-1616). It is supposed to have been first performed at the Globe Theatre, London in 1611, though it is likely to have been performed earlier than this. Central to The Tragedy of Macbeth is the physical and moral destruction cause when; “An ambitious man usurps power and undermines social and political order.

Nevertheless, through poems “La Belle Dame sans Merci” by John Keats, “My Last Duchess” by Robert Browning, “Mother in a Refugee Camp” by Chinua Achebe, “The day is gone, and all its sweets are gone!” by John Keats, “Remember” by Christina Rossetti and “Piano” by D. H. Lawrence, this essay will explore how and why different poets present the theme of love in a variety of ways. ‘La Belle Dame sans Merci’ is a romantic ballad written by English poet John Keats in 1819, when the artistic, literary and intellectual movement of romanticism was at its peak. Set in the medieval period, Keats aims to use this setting to juxtapose the different perspective people, originating from different times, had towards the theme of love. Through the relationship of the knight and the woman as well as the setting of ‘La Belle Dame sans Merci’; Keats is able to reflect upon the faithful and truthful expression of love in the medieval times as well as the freedom of individual expression and imagination in the romantic period.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a play written by William Shakespeare. This play talks about a love tangle between Hermia and Demetrius. Theseus is the Duke of Athens, and he was planning a big wedding festival with Hippolyta. Egeus is the father of Hermia, and he wants her to marry Demetrius.

In A Midsummer’s Night’s Dream two couples face difficulties in love. These pairs are Hermia and Lysander, two Athenian youth, and Titania and Oberon, the king and queen of the fairies. The main focus of the play is the problems that these four face along with the struggles of Demetrius and Helena, but this essay will focus on the first two couples. Hermia and Lysander’s struggles with love are very similar to Titania and Oberon’s except that Hermia and Lysander, being mortals, were negatively affected by the love-in-idleness flower while Titania and Oberon, being magical being themselves, were positively affected by it. The play begins with both couples facing some sort of discord.
She never wanted to do what she was told by people she didn 't fully respect. She puts up the fight of her life to Aunt Alexandera because she does not want to become a lady.
