Oberon's impinges on the play A Mid Summer Nights Dream.
The play A Mid Summers Night's Dream written by William Shakespeare in the 15th century has captured people's imaginations for centuries. The play contains earnest and playful characters some plagued with bad luck. All the characters helped to mold this masterpiece. One of these extraordinary characters is Oberon who is the king of all fairies, his Queen Titania and Puck his head servant who does a lot of his bidding. Oberon affects the lives of Lysander, Demetrius, and Titania. Oberon causes Lysander to fall in love with Helena, Demetrius to fall in love with Helena, and causes Titania to fall in love with an ass. .
Through Puck Oberon accidentally causes Lysander to fall in love with Helena. Oberon meant for Demetrius to fall in love with Helena, but Oberon told Puck "Take thou some of it, and seek through this grove. A sweet Athenian lady is in love with a disdainful youth. Anoint his eyes, But do it when the next thing he espies May be the lady. Thou shalt know the man, By the Athenian garments he hath on." Oberon did not give Puck a thorough explanation on whom he wants Puck to place the love juice on. He should have said what was featured on the garments so Puck wouldn't confuse Demetrius with anyone else. After this conversation Puck went and placed the love juice on Lysander who was not the disdainful youth Oberon was meaning. Helena later came along and tripped over Lysander while he slept, and Lysander falls in love with her. He awakes saying "And run through fire I will for thy sweet sake. Transparent Helena! Nature shows art that through thy bosom makes me see thy heart. Where is Demetrius? Oh how fit a word is that vile name, to perish on my sword!" He says these words to show his love for her. Oberon later finds out about the mishap and he informs Puck telling him " Then crush this herb into Lysander's eye, whose liquor hath this virtuous property, to take from thence all error, with his might and make his eyeball roll with wonted sight.
