Bottom fell in love with her because she is beautiful. Titania thought Bottom was attractive because of the juice. Bottom thought he actually was attractive. We know all of this is happening because of the juice. Oberon, Titania 's husband, started to feel guilty.
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). A few may argue that the love potion that caused many of these confusions, however that’s an insufficient excuse, it’s true that a couple of these events resulted because of the fairies.
Oberon wants possession of the boy, so that he can become his servant. Even though Oberon claims to love Titania, he proves this inaccurate when he proclaims, “Having once this juice,/ I’ll watch Titania when she is asleep/ And drop the liquor of it in her eyes./ The next thing then she waking looks upon— / Be it on lion, bear, or wolf, or bull,/ On meddling monkey or on busy ape—/ She shall pursue it with the soul of love.”(Shakespeare 2.1.160-168). This is an example of Titania being bullying by false love. Oberon places love potion into his wife’s eyes, so that she will fall in life with an unlikely creature. As a result of Oberon having false love for Titania, she oddly falls for a clown with a donkey head.
In addition, Hermia 's childhood best friend and Demetrius were in love prior to his sights turning towards Hermia. This crushed Helena, causing her to lose self-confidence, but still: she yearns for Demetrius 's love. Hermia and Lysander 's love, Egeus 's harsh rule, and Helena 's unrequited love for Demetrius causes the lovers to leave Athens. Various factors cause the lovers to run away together. Hermia and Lysander 's love causes them to leave Athens.
In William Shakespeare’s comedy A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Shakespeare critiques the idea of characters losing their power by falling in love because they allow their lover to have power over them and their actions. When characters lose their power as they fall in love, they are also allowing their mind to be corrupted by their lover. In the third act of the play, Lysander mistakenly takes the love potion meant for Demetrius and wakes up to see Helena. Hermia and Helena are confused as they find that Lysander is now pledging his love to Helena instead of Hermia, who he was formerly in love with. Hermia accuses Helena of stealing her lover and threatens her by saying, “how low am I?
He takes back control by using a ‘love potion’ that will “Will make or man or woman madly dote/Upon the next live creature that it sees” (2.1.171-2). With Titania’s attention averted, Oberon will be able to get the child, and thus regain his control in their marriage. His desire blinds him to any compassion towards his wife, and he doesn’t care about what this situation could land Titania in: “The next thing then she waking looks upon—/Be it on lion, bear, or wolf, or bull,/On meddling monkey, or on busy ape—/She shall pursue it with the soul of love”
Titania remains loyal to the little boy’s mother by keeping the promises she made before the mother died. Oberon and Titania are constantly fighting about the boy and how he wants the boy for himself to use him as a servant. Titania shows that she is loyal by not giving him to anyone and refusing
In “The Odyssey” written by Homer, Odysseus has fought big creatures that you have never thought you would ever hear about, but the only real thing he cares about, is his wife, Penelope. Even after twenty years, Odysseus has never forgotten about Penelope. Odysseus may have made poor decisions, yet he was always loyal, trustworthy, and strong-hearted when it came to his wife Penelope. Odysseus made several wrong decisions in his travels after the Trojan War. Odysseus was loyal to a certain point, but if a Goddess asked you to do something you should act on it or something bad could potentially happen to you or a loved one.
Helena attempts to control Demetrius by betraying her friends in hopes that he would fall for her. Routinely, Helena tries to gain Demetrius’s love for instance, when she asserts, “Stay though thou kill me, sweet Demetrius!”(Shakespeare.86.1.70). Demetrius then responds with, “I change thee hence, and do not haunt me thus” (Shakespeare.87.1.70). Despite him being
