In Act 3.2, Oberon tells Puck, “I want you to interrupt their search by makinging it foggy. Do not allow them to find each other… Once they are asleep, place this potion in Lysander's eyes to remove the pollen you mistakenly placed.”(16) With that power of control by being the Fairy King, he is controlling his servant to have him things right between the couples. Oberon controls Puck by telling him what to do to the couple so they won't be able to find each other and fight. In Act 4, Oberon demands Puck, “Puck, you must end your prank, as well. 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.
He also likes to incorporate dreams because they change the flow of time, and impossible situations occur. He even incorporates things such as the moon to give the play a dreamy effect. Shakespeare tries to recreate a hectic environment by letting fairies intervene into the magical forest. After a bizarre night in the forest, many of the characters explain that what happen to them was simply just a dream. By calling their experiences dreams, this allows the characters to not have to come up with an explanation for their occurences.
In the novel Night, the word night contained great significance and has very deep meaning. Elie’s memory of everything in this time period is dark and tragic. It is called Night to show what he felt like during this whole time period, and it felt like one long, painful night to him. Night represents the pain, fear, death, and darkness from Elie’s past. “We stared at the flames in the darkness.
What do I see on thee?” (Shakespeare 3.1.1050). Once Puck changed Nick Bottom into a donkey he thought they were trying to frighten and scare him. Bottom decides to sing to show them that he is not scared but while he is singing Titania wakes up and says, “What angel wakes me from my flowery bed?” (Shakespeare 3.1.115). When someone loses what they
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.
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.
In the forest outside of Athens, chaos and order are present throughout the plot of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. In the forest, the fairies attempt to manipulate the love between the lovers and bring chaos upon them. Later, however, they also find a way to bring order and bring balance to the love. In the real world, love can just as easily be changed by order and chaos. But without chaos or order being involved in love, then love cannot last.
Imagery of Light and Dark in Macbeth In Shakespeare’s Macbeth, the reader is submersed in a play filled with imagery. Shakespeare created a world to escape to through eloquently written detail and imagination. From the weird sisters to the phantom dagger, on every page there is a something new and descriptive to find. He masterfully uses different themes throughout his play as symbolically, to convey different truths to his audience. The personification of light and dark in Macbeth is used to symbolize good and evil in various instances throughout the play.
Sir Hubert Von Herkomer’s “Bottom Asleep” depicts the scene from Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream Nick Bottom, after Robin had cast a spell on him, sleeping under a tree with the head of a donkey. This painting contains elements of magic, as seen by the two fairies observing Bottom in his sleep. The scene gives the onset of the magical world being involved in the real world as seen in the fairies watching Bottom after he had been transformed into a donkey. In Herkomer’s work, he uses the art elements of color, value, lines, and space. By using the artistic element of value, Herkomer accentuates Bottom’s sleep, as well as the fairies that examine him.
‘’Ay me, for pity! what a dream was here!’’ (Shakespeare, 25). In this quote Hermia has just woken up and says that everything that had just happened was like a dream because she could not explain what had just happened. ‘’ I have had a dream, past the wit of man to say what dream it was: man is but an ass, if
“Doesn’t anybody ever sleep around here?” “No,” answered Mugsie, “We don’t sleep in heaven.” “I sleep,” said Peewee. “Well, you’re a kitten,” said Topsie. “Yes, and you can sleep all you want on Earth,” said Sherman. “Earth?” said Peewee, who was suddenly awake. “You found me a home!” And Peewee began to laugh and twirl around.
Outside Sources In “A Midsummers Night’s Dream” it has some outside sources with mythical creatures and magic as well as Summer and arranged marriages. The use of a mythical creature such as Puck, as a symbol in the book, leads the readers to have to believe in magic. As Puck’s mistake of spreading the love potion on the wrong person’s eyelids leads to more magic having to be performed, the reader has to give into fantasy to make the story enjoyable. The satire of the arranged marriage sets up the whole play because the lovers run away because they don’t want to be married to the people their parents have chosen. Summer then plays a huge role in this play as it allows the characters to roam around in this forest without being in danger to
