In my opinion, this is the best example of dramatic irony because it is exciting. This is also my favorite example. Wilkins 2 Another example of dramatic irony is when both, Lysander and Demetrius, fell in love with Helena. At first, Helena has been in love with Demetrius, but he was in love with Hermia.
During the play, A Midsummer’s Night Dream, there were also other examples of dramatic irony besides Bottom. Hermia and Lysander were true loves, but once they were seperated by Lysander’s new love, everything changed. Also a fairy queen, Titania, falls in love with Bottom, a worker who looks different.

Desire is a well-known trope in Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The four lovers and their magically caused mishap is one of the plays main scenes.

While it may not outline it perfectly it could also be the story of Destino.

Puck is Oberon’s jester, and his antics are responsible for many of the complications that launch the conflict of the play.

Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream is often viewed as a comedic tale of love. It takes on the general ideals of a comedy—beginning with order, moving on to chaos, and ultimately ending with harmony among society. By providing opposing settings, the city of Athens and the fairy world, Shakespeare highlights the duality of man’s nature. The fickleness of human beings becomes more apparent once the lovers are placed in the dreamy world represented by the forest.
