Not a romance, but a comedy

liechtenstein
I am amazed at Shakespeare's language, again. Beautiful, elegant, vivid, and elusive to me. I always believe the glamor of Shakespeare stems more from his verses than his plots. In scene 1, tons of exquisite words and sentences flow. There is simile like "And then the moon, like t o a silver bow/New-bent in heaven, shall behold the night/ Of our solemnities." to dramatic dialogue "But earthlier happy is the rose distilled,/Than that which withering on the virgin thorn/Grows, lives and dies in single blessedness./So will I grow, so live, so die, my lord."

A little feminism can even be seen from these two characters. Hermia would rather die or stay single forever than marry the one she doesn't love, and she decides to steal away with her lover. She fights for her own love and her desired life. Helena, though I do not like her, is a brave girl at that time for she chases her love despite all the difficulties. Her love for Demetrius is no less passionate than young man. She said, "We cannot fight for love, as man may do;/We should be wood and are not made to woo." which is still part of the truth in modern days.
