’s Dream Essay, Research Paper
Quotation #1: From this paragraph, we are able to gain a sense of Theseus? character. We find, in this passage of text, that Theseus? is, by all means, a joyful person. ?Go, Philostrate, Stir up the Athenian youth to merriments; He wants Philostrate to go and make sure that the young of Athens are joyful at the nuptial hour. Awake the pert and nimble spirit of mirth: He wants to make sure that the lice and happy people, the ones who will laugh, are in attendance. Turn melancholy forth to funerals;? Make sure the sad, boring people don?t come, because his nuptial hour will have no resemblence of a funeral. Quotation #2: From this paragraph, we realize that there is a ?fateful rivalry? between the king and queen of fairies. ?These are the forgeries of jealousy: You?re saying these things, because you are jealous. And never since the middle summer?s spring…. You?ve been jealous since mid summer. ….But with thy brawls thou hast disturb?d our sport.? Our arguing has disturbed the fairies. Quotation #3: I am almost positive that this quote is a foreshadow of something that will happen between the king and queen of fairies. To me, it doesn?t sound like anything good. You?d think that Oberon has been hurt by Titania. ?Well, go thy way: thou shalt not from this grove Well, do what you want to do. Till I torment thee for this injury.? But, you will pay for the hurt you?ve brought to me. Quotation #4: This paragraph is basically the fufillment of Quotation #3. This seems to be the plot of Oberon against Titania. It seems like he is about to cast some type of spell on her so that when she opens her eyes, she shall be more loyal to him. ?Having once this juice… * …And I will overhear their conference.? Quotation #5: This is it! Oberon is using the juices from a flower to make her do something that she obviously was not to perculiar about doing carnally. ?What thou seest when thou dost wake… …Wake when some vile thing is near.? Quotation #6: This quote let?s us know that Titania is somewhat curious as to what awoke her from her sleeping. She classifies whatever awoke her as an angel. ?That angel wakes me from my flowery bed? Quotation #7: Okay? The spell must have been something dealing with her falling in love, but I thought Titania was already married to the king, Oberon.??? It seems as if she has fallen in love with the singing of Bottom. ?I pray thee, gentle mortal, sing again:… …On the first view to say, to swear, I love thee.? Quotation #8: Oberon is now wondering if the queen of fairies, Titania has been awaken yet, and he?s wondering, if she has awaken, what it is, or whom it is that ?she must dote on in extremity?. ?I wonder if Titania be awaked;… …Which she must dote on in extremity.? Quotation #9: It seems like Oberon is praying to the gods to make his wishes come true. It seems like he?s interceding on the behalf of someone else, though. ?Flower of this purple dye, Beg of her for remedy.? Quotation #10: I think Titania has fallen in love with Bottom. It seems, now, like she is trying to seduce him in some sort of manner. ?Come, sit thee down upon this flowery bed,… …And kiss thy fair large ears, my gentle joy.?
