Mid Summer Night's Dream
Summary: Act 2 Scene 1

The beginning of the scene begins when Robin Goodfellow, Oberon's servant, and Titania’s fairy maid meet in a field in the forest. Robin Goodfellow, or better known as Puck, informs Tania's servant to be careful to not let her and Oberon see, or meet each other. He is sure to explain that Oberon is extremely angry at Titania because she has hold of a little indian boy, that Oberon thinks is so worthy of making a knight for himself. Though Titania won’t give the little boy to Oberon. This creates a huge argument between the two.
Once agreed to keep both Oberon, and Titania away from each other, Puck and Tania's fairy servant proceed to talk and share stories about Puck’s foolish tricks he has played on all of the humans. Then, all of the sudden, Puck and the other fairy maid are particularly interrupted when Oberon appears on one side of the small opening of the forest, while Titania also appears on the other side of the opening. Both followed by their own servants and attendants, the two powerful fairies storm towards each other. They both question each other why they are so near to Athens when its almost Theseus and Hippolyta's wedding.Then, Titania accuses Oberon for being in an affair with Hippolyta and attempting to ruin their marriage. But at the same moment, Oberon accuses Titania for loving Theseus and trying to break up their marriage. Oberon quickly switches the conversation and asks Titania to give the little Indian boy. Offended and annoyed, Titania explains that she couldn't give him the boy to him even if he wanted because his mother was very devoted to her before she died, and in favor she must look out for the boy.
Then, Titania offers to go to the dance with Oberon to the fairy party. Oberon refuses and says he will only accompany her if she hands over the Indian boy. With Oberon's response, Titania storms away and disappears. Then, Oberon decides to sends Puck on a mission to get a special flower that, if dripped into the eyes of one sleeping, will cause the person to fall in love with the first thing they set eyes on. Oberon is hoping that when he has the flower, he can place the flowers drops in Titania's eyes while she is sleeping and wake up to fall in love with some “ridiculous” creature. His plan is to refuse to lift the spell off of Titania unless she hands the little indian boy over to him.
Then, Helena and Demetrius enter the woods as Oberon and Puck turn inadvisable in order to spy on them. When Oberon overhears Demetrius yelling at Helena and telling her to go away because he doesn't love her, he feels pity for Helena. Oberon decides to have Puck place the flower drops in Demetrius's eyes so that he will love Helena in return.

1)How do both Robin and Oberon express the desire to
others? (Cite evidence)

Robin Goodfellow, otherwise known as "Puck", has the well know desire to control others by playing trick on all of the humans, which makes them feel stupid, or confused.This gives him satisfaction and makes him feel as though he is superior to others and has the ability to control people.

-Quote from Act2 Scene1:
"The wisest aunt telling the saddest tale
Sometime for three-foot stool mistaketh me.
Then slip I from her bum, down topples she,
And “Tailor!” cries, and falls into a cough,
And then the whole quire hold their hips and laugh,
And waxen in their mirth, and neeze, and swear"

As well as for Oberon, he expresses his desire to control others when he sends Puck on a task to get a special flower, that if the juice is dropped in the eyes of a person, it will make them fall in love with the first creature they lay eyes on. Oberon is planning to drop the juice of the flower into Tania's eyes and have her fall in love with some "ridiculous" sort of animal. He has also planned to
lift the spell off of Titania unless she gives him the indian boy. This explains how Oberon has the desire to control the things he wants. ( Titanias love & The Indian boy)

- Quote from Act2 Scene1:
"Having once this juice,
I’ll watch Titania when she is asleep
And drop the liquor of it in her eyes.
The next thing then she waking looks upon—
Be it on lion, bear, or wolf, or bull,
On meddling monkey or on busy ape—
She shall pursue it with the soul of love.
And ere I take this charm from of her sight—
As I can take it with another herb—
I’ll make her render up her page to me."

Our experience doing Act 2 Scene 1 was fun, yet it required a lot of hard work.( We faced lots of problems creating a prezi account.) It was easy and fun to design the word bubble. It was hard to understand our scene but we pulled through together and helped each other. I found that working together is our strongest talent. Helping each other helped us solve problems. It was hard to figure out how Shakespearean language works because it was very hard to understand. We used our class resources and understanding to figure out how to decode this.

2)What do we learn about Puck's

In this scene, we learn more about Puck's mischievous and sly personality. We especially see this when Puck's is talking to Tania's servant about all of the "hilarious" tricks he has played on the mortals.

- This line from Act2 Scene 1, said Titania's fairy maid, explains how well know Puck and his reputation is :

"Called Robin Goodfellow. Are not you he
That frights the maidens of the villagery,
Skim milk, and sometimes labor in the quern
And bootless make the breathless housewife churn,
And sometime make the drink to bear no barm,
Mislead night-wanderers, laughing at their harm?"

3)Oberon says that Titania can make them by doing

Oberon says Titania can make things right between them by having Titania give Oberon the little boy to be his henchman. He also explains to Titania, that if she gives him the child, he will take her to the special fairy dance

4)Why won't Titania give Oberon what he

Titania will not give Oberon what he wants, the young Indian boy, because she clams the child was the son of a mother that was very devoted to her and when she died, it was her duty to watch out for the boy. This is also the initial reason why Oberon isn't able to bring her to the fairy dance

Shakesphere uses the metaphor big bellied sails in A Midsummer Nights Dream in act 2 scene 1. This metaphor means pregnant. He uses this metaphor when Titania talks about the young boy Oberon wants mother and how when the ships sails would fill with wind that makes it look lik a pregnant womans stomach.
Shakesphere uses this metaphor in a Midsummer Nights Dream when the King of Fairies, Oberon, and his Queen, Titania, are arguing. They are arguing because Titania will not give Oberon the little boy. She wont let Oberon take the boy because his mother was her friend sadly she had past away while giving birth to him and for her sake she is raising him and wont give him up for anything. She tells Oberon how she and his mother would gossip and laugh when they would see the merchant ships sails fill with the wind making it look like a pregnant woman's stomach.

Puck is a fairy in Mid Summer Nights Dream. He is the servant Oberon and tries to control the mortals. My evidence for this is that Oberon orders him to put spells on the 4 lover mortals in Act 2 scene 2. Oberon does this because he wants everything to be fixed including the 4 lover mortals. Puck tries to control the mortals with a magical flower that Oberon gave to him in Act 2 Scene 2. Oberon gives Puck this magical flower for Puck to make the right mortals fall in love with each other as seen in Act 2 Scene 2. Oberon said that if Puck put it in the mortals eyes the first person they woke to they would fall in love with them so he did what he was told. Then he made a mistake! He put the flower in the wrong mortal's eye! This is read in Act 2 Scene 2. This causes the four lovers to get in a huge fight for love. In the end Puck fixes it all.

Oberon, the king of the fairies, had overheard Helena and Demetrius and how Demetrius being very rude and harsh to Helena. He takes pity on Helena and decides to try and help so he requests Puck to use the pollen from a flower with a love spell on it on Demetrius, which he is known as the Athenian youth, to fall in love with Helena. “A sweet Athenian lady is in love with a disdainful youth. Anoint in his eyes, but do it when the next thing he espies may be the lady. Thou shalt know him by the Athenian garments he hath on. Effect it with the some care, that he may prove more fond on her than she upon her love. And look thou meet me ere the first cock crow,” (2.1.265) Oberon tries to control Demetrius by sending Puck out with the flower with the spell on it and he will put some f the pollen onto Demetrius’ eyes and he will fall in love with the next thing he sees, which would be Helena. Puck accidentally puts the pollen onto Lysanders’ eyes rather than Demetrius’. So when Helena checks on Lysander when she sees him sleeping by the river Lysander sees Helena and falls in love with her. Later, Demetrius is also given the nectar and falls in love with Helena causing Lysander and Demetrius to fight over who loves Helena most. “Although Oberon is pleased to learn of Titania’s infatuation with Bottom, he soon realizes that Robin mistakenly applied the magic nectar to the wrong Athenian. He sends Robin to bring Helena while he anoints the eyes of Demetrius, who has fallen asleep after quarelling with Hermia. Helena enters with Lysander. As Lysander woos her, Demetrius wakes up and falls in love with Helena. Both man claims that he is Helena’s only true lover,”(3.2.0)

Oberon, one of the main and most powerful fairies of the forest, shows many controlling and mischievous traits in Act2, Scene1. He shows this controlling characteristic when he conjures a plan to drop the juice of a speciel flower in the eyes in the fairy Queen, Titania, in order for her to wake up and fall in love with some "ridiculous" creature. "Having once this juice,I’ll watch Titania when she is asleep and drop the liquor of it in her eyes.The next thing then she waking looks upon—Be it on lion, bear, or wolf, or bull,On meddling monkey or on busy ape—She shall
pursue it with the soul of love
. And ere I take this charm from of her sight.." (2.1.180). This shows that he finds Titania's falling in love with some types of animal very funny. This is one of the reasons he has decided to place love potion a pon her. Though more importantly, Oberon figures that while she is under the potion, he could propose the offering of releasing her from the spell, if only she woulf give him the indian boy-which
he would make his page
."As I can take it with another herb—I’ll make her render up her page to me” (2.1.180). Oberons doing later show in Act3, Scene1 and result in Titania falling in love with an actor named, Nick Bottom, who has been transformed into half of a donkey." “I’ve ever seen you, but you’re so wonderful that I can’t help swearing to you that I love you….You’re as wise as you are beautiful”(3.1.130). -This quote refers to what Titania says to Bottom.Though, Oberon later releases the spell that makes Titania love Nick Bottom so much and instead, uses the potion on him, making Titania love him. He also carried out his plan of turning Titania's little indian boy, into his page.
Oberon also shows how he controls other when he attempts to fix the "love" situation between Helena and Demetrius. He and Puck spot Demetrius yelling and treating Helena in a horrible way, and in response Oberon feels bad for Helena and doesn't want her to be so despised by Demetrius, so he decides to send Puck a trip to drop some love potion in Demetrius's eyes so that he can wake up and fall in love with Helena.“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"(2.1.260). Oberon's good intentions end up making things more complicated."Through the forest have I gone. But Athenian found I none, On whose eyes I might approve This flower’s force in stirring love.(sees LYSANDER and HERMIA...She durst not lie Near this lack-love, this kill-courtesy.(Squeezes flower juice on LYSANDER’s eyelids)" (3.1.70). Puck gets confused on who Demetrius is, and accidently places the love potion on Lysander. In effect, Lysander wakes up and, also unexpectedly, falls in love with Helena. Helena thinks that he is making fun of her and she gets mad. This leads to a bunch off chain reactions and complicates the situation even more

Throughout the course of Act 2 Scene 2 Oberon is constantly controlling Puck. Oberon demands that Puck take the magical flower and sprinkle the pollen of it into Demetrius’s eyes when Helena is close by. Oberon does this in the hopes that when Demetrius awakes he will be looking at Helena and fall in love with her. In this way Oberon is actually sort of nice. He feels bad for Helena and wants Demetrius and her to be a couple like Helena has always dreamed of. Unfortunately for Oberon Puck accidentally puts the pollen into Lysander’s eye. So when Helena awakes and goes to check on Lysander he sees her and falls in love with her instead. Demetrius is then also given the nectar and now they are both in love with Helena. Now they have to fight to prove who loves her more.
