    Quince and the others are scared and don’t know why his head is like that. This is dramatic irony because the audience knows why he is like this. Puck, a fairy, turned Bottom’s head into an ass’s head because Oberon, the fairy king, wanted his wife, Titania, to fall in love with something ugly. 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

    love” is supposed to be. The humorous fact in this quote is that “true love” is manifested by the fairy queen and a human who has been transformed into an ass. This shows that in true love anything can happen. The irony of this quote is that the love Titania has for Bottom is not real, and that it is being controlled by a magic potion. So Shakespeare shows again how magic is bad and how it can affect both race(humans and fairies). Shakespeare in this quote shows the reader

    CLASSIFICATION Fairy characters are very important figures in Shakespeare’s comedy. Inhabitants of the play’s fairy world call themselves spirits, ghosts, or shadows, what makes their kind unclear and hard to define. The fairies of A Midsummer Night 's Dream are seen to be what Oberon calls them: " spirits of another sort." However, Shakespeare 's fairies in A Midsummer Night’s Dream match the category of trooping fairies. They seem to be elemental creatures, nature ones. The most frequent

    in the play. The pun on “eye” comes into play here because it could be an indicator of Puck’s search within himself to discover his true identity. Since Oberon and Titania also play the characters of Theseus and Hippolyta respectively, Puck is the only purely magical being who has an important role in the play. So while Oberon and Titania have to deal with their human counterparts, Puck’s dual personality is set apart as something unique, though his other name Robin Goodfellow does sound ordinary and

    William Shakespeare 's A Midsummer Night’s Dream opens with the indication of a future marriage between Theseus, the Duke of Athens, and Hippolyta, queen of the Amazons. Act two introduces us to the Faerie king and queen, Oberon and Titania, who are fighting for the custody of a changeling boy. From these two quarrels, it is apparent that there is a difference in gender dynamics between the leaders of Athens and those of the Faerie World. In the beginning of the play, Theseus says to Hippolyta

    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 play’s main scenes. However, even though sexual desire is found in each of the play’s acts, it isn’t the only type of desire found within the play. In addition to sexual desire, we find a desire for utter and complete control, which is held most notably by Oberon, as well as the desire for chaos. Puck is a character recognizable by those who study mythology by his

    (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”

    say the truth, reason and love keep little company together nowadays…” (Bevington, 2014, p. 58 3.1.141). Titania being the queen of fairies and Bottom is of a lower-class of humans enforces the logic of Bottoms reasoning. Again, due to Puck’s negligence with his love potion ordeal, Shakespeare portrays the rather unrealistic and spurious side of love in A Midsummer Night’s Dream from Titania and Bottom (Bevington, 2014). A Midsummer Night’s Dream demonstrates the love perplexity and frenzy of the

Many people control others because of anger. In Act 2, Oberon puts a love potion on Titania as a trick to make her fall in love with a beast. “I will place the pollen from the flowers loin Titania's eyelids so that the next thing she sees- be it lion, bear, wolf, or bull- she will fall madly in love with, and I will get that boy.”(5) Oberon
