A Midsummer Night's Dream

By Mia, Bailey, Jackson, and Nic

Act 2, Scene 1, Lines 188-256

Summary of Scene

Helena is chasing Demetrius while Lysander and Hermia are running into the woods to elope. Demetrius is following Hermia because he loves her but she does not love him. Helena is confessing her love to Demetrius as he tries to find Hermia in the woods. Oberon and Puck are fairies who believe they can fix the conflict of the group. Oberon sends Puck to fetch a "love" flower and sprinkle it over Demetrius to solve the problem.

Important Quote

Demetrius: "For I am sick when I do look on thee."

When I look at you I feel sick.

Helena: "And I am sick when I look not on you."

And I feel sick when I am not looking at you.

This quote is important because it portrays that Helena is obsessive and desperate. It also shows that even though Demetrius doesn't love her and treats her poorly Helena still loves him.


Played by Mia

Puck is a fairy. He is significant because he uses the "love" flower to make the characters fall in love. Puck is encounters a major conflict. He tries to fix the problem of people loving the wrong people by sprinkling the "love" flower over Demetrius. Instead he mistake's Lysander for Demetrius. This causes Lysander to fall in love with Helena even though he really loves Hermia and she loves him. Puck messed up and caused and even greater problem. Puck is oblivious because he doesn't notice that he puts the flower on the wrong person. He didn't look hard enough and just assumed that the sleeping man was Demetrius. If he was not oblivious then maybe he would have put the "love" flower over the right person.


Played by Jackson

Demetrius likes Hermia, but Helena likes Demetrius. Since Demetrius likes Hermia he dose not like Helena so he keeps turning her down multiple times, but Helena dose not seem to get it. Helena keeps coming back and trying to get it with Demetrius.

Demetrius is sunifacant because he keeps running away and hiding from Helena and try to find hermia , as he say "i run from you and hide"


Played by Bailey

She is in love with Demetrius

She is encountering her love for Demetrius but he doesn't love her back.

The character trait that is affecting the conflict is that is is obsessing over Demetrius. He doesn't love her but she is not going to give up.


Played by Nic

My character is the king of the fairy's oberon and is the one that comes up with the love flower idea. He is significant because his idea is the one that causes the whole plot between Helena, Hermia, Demetrius, and Lysander. Oberons conflict is with puck because Puck keeps giving the flower to the wrong person so therefore causing the wrong people to fall in love and making them fight over each other. When Oberon feels bad for them it causes the whole conflict because if he didn't see it then the love flower never would have been there.
