TITANIA

ANALYZING THE FAIRY QUEEN FROM "A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM"

There is magic in the world

Throughout all the Acts in A Midsummer Night's Dream, Titania is foolish for her love toward Bottom, she exemplifies the statement "there is magic in the world". She is a fairy and is magical by nature. She experiences the course of the play reinforce claims that magic exists throughout the play. In Act II, Oberon puts juice from a magical flower into Titania's eyes that makes Titania fall in love with the first person that she sees. Oberon confirms the spell when he says this words "What thou seest when thou doth wake due it for thy true love take... Be it ounce or cat or bear, pard or boar with bristled hair" (II.ii.16-20). Oberon did this to make her fall in love with Bottom, which has a donkey's head. Without magic being used the spell would have not worked on Titania. Titania tried to keep the Indian boy away from Oberon; it showed that she was strong. While Titania is in love with half-donkey man might be funny in Shakespeare's time. Eventhough, the king of faeries was forced to use magic on Titania to achieve his achievement goal, proving that "there is magic in the world".

PEOPLE'S IDEAS OF LOVE CAN, AND OFTEN DO, CHANGE

Throughout Act II of A Midsummer Night's Dream, Titania exemplifies the often dispute ideal that a person's ideas of love can, and often do, change. For example, in Act II Titania and her husband, The Fairy King, Oberon, are arguing about the Indian boy. Their relationship has been a bit of a difficulty. Oberon can be a jealous male fairy and he wants to take the Indian boy away from Titania his wife. "What, jealous Oberon?-- Fearies, skip hence. I have forsworn his bed and company" (II.I.47-18). This quote shows how Titania is not that in love with Oberon since they both have cheated on each other. Eventhough, he king of faeries Oberon put his wife the queen of faeries Titania into a love spell then he regreted it.

PEOPLE'S EMOTIONS USUALLY CONTROL HOW THEY ACT.

Throughout Act II of A Midsummer Night's Dream, Titania exemplifies the often disputed ideal that a person's emotions often control how he or she acts. For example, in Act II Oberon and Titania, The king of faeries, fight over the boy, Oberon is jealous that his wife got the Indian boy and not him. " His mother was a votaress of my order, and in the spiced Indian air by night full often hath she gossiped by my side... But she, being mortal, of that boy did die, and for her sake I do rear up her boy, and for her sake I will not part with him" (II.I.108-123). This quote shows that Titania didn't want to give the Indian boy to Oberon to be his servant. Since Titania refuses to give the Indian boy to Oberon, Oberon decides to use the flower juice to put it in Titania's eyes to make her fall in love with the first person that she sees, Titania clearly exemplifies the statement "People's emotions usually control how they act".

CHARACTER COMPARES TO ME!!

In Shakespeare's play A Mid summer night's Dream, Titania is a magical nature creature. I do not wish to fall in love with the first person I see like Titania. Titania also shows the importance of keeping promises. I keep most of my promises when it comes to family promises. Right after Titania was put under the love spell by her husband Oberon, but then once Oberon took the Indian boy from her he took the spell of.
