Jealousy in A Midsummer Night's Dream
Transcript of Jealousy in A Midsummer Night's Dream
Modern Day Examples of Jealousy
Use of Jealousy in Other Books
A common theme in other books is jealousy.
So is Jealousy a Vice or Not?
Jealousy is very much a vice, but it is also very much a virtue.
What is jealousy
Elizabeth Bowen “Jealousy is no more than feeling alone against smiling enemies."
Jealousy is wanting what others have
You are not the only ones...
Celebrity's and the Rich also get Jealous
Keyshia Cole was jealous of Beyonce and and the Eastside Girlz when they performed at the superbowl.
For example, Shakespeare's "Othello".
It shows many themes of jealousy throughout it.
The Use of Jealousy in A Midsummer Nights Dream
Jealousy plays a vital role in A Midsummer Nights Dream.
The plot relies heavily on Jealousy and many events occur because of it.
Helena is Jealous of Hermia
Oberon is Jealous of Titania
Then, Hermia is Jelous of Helena
Demetrius is Jealous of Lysander
Everyones jealousy is what interconnects everyones paths and is what binds the story together.
For example, if Oberon was not jealous of Titania, then he would not have sent puck (Robin Goodfellow) to get the flower for the love juice.
Thus, they would never have found Demetrius and Helena in the woods...
That means that Demetrius would never have married Helena and Lysander would have never married Hermia.
It all depends on your situation...
Sometimes it may seem like a vice, but it could be a hidden virtue.
Jealousy can also be a horrible vice, as shown in Othello.

Do you amend it, then; it lies in you: Why should Titania cross her Oberon? I do but beg a little changeling boy, To be my henchman. (Act 2, Scene 1: 118-121)
It is a human emotion that we all have.
It allows us to make good or bad choices in our lives.
