Midsummer Nights
Everyone thinks they will fall in love or be in love with someone else at one
point in there life.Love is a very strong word, in A Midsummer Nights Dream by

William Shakespear, it was used to its full potential. It could be true love or
jus an infatuation that you think is love but it really isn`t. First there was
the love between Theseus and Hippolyta, which lasted though out the whole play.

Then Lysander and Hermia were in love but Demitrius also loved Hermia but that
was change later by Oberon. Later Demetrius falls back in love with Helena but
only because he was put under a spell. In this play there were many
relationships between all the charaters. I think the play A Midsummer Nights

Dream reflects deep truths about love and relationships. In Norrie Epstiens
essay there were many good points. Most of them were about how all the
chatacters were interchangable and how they fell in love. Her most important
point was how love becomes a spell. Love dose become a spell or at least seems
like one because you dont function right when your in love. That happens alot in
this play with Helena and Lysander. Like when Lysander is told that he can not
marry Helena he tries to do whatever he can to try to get the duke to let them
marry. He even was gonna try to sneak out of athens with Helena jus so they can
be together and that makes the reader think that he would not do that if they
weren`t in love. Another good point that Epstien had was that love transforms a
mortal into a rarety of imperfection. When people are in love with each other
they try to act perfect so that don`t make a bad impression. The person thinks
that if they act perfect around the person they think they "love" that they
will start to "fall in love" with each other. That isn`t how it works every
time though so you are doing all that work for nothing. This is what is meant by
transforming and it happens a lot in real life and in the play.
