Hermias father Egeus wants Hermia to get married to Demetrius but is unable to change her mind on Lysander. He tells her that she has four days to decide on marrying Demetrius which is the day of Theseus and Hippolytas wedding. She has the choice of either marrying Demetrius, becoming a nun or she can face death.
Shakespeare's Sources for A Midsummer Night's Dream A Midsummer Night's Dream is one of Shakespeare's most-performed plays: a delightful comedy, but full of enough potential tragedy to avoid becoming saccharine. Much of that tragic possibility comes from Shakespeare's sources, as he directly acknowledges in Act V. The entertainments Philostrate proposes, all stories taken from Ovid's Metamorphoses, show the unhappy endings all too likely to spring from tales like that of the four lovers of Shakespeare's play, or the strife-torn fairy rulers. "The battle with the Centaurs, to be sung / By an Athenian eunuch with the harp" (V.i.44-5) is the first of Philostrate's suggestions, and the most blatant. Centaurs are almost an epitome of the dangerous fairy-world that underlies so much of Shakespeare's play: half-man, half-beast, they recall Bottom's similar, albeit more humorous, condition. Lust and jealousy cause the undoing of the marriage feast, for the Centaurs' theft of women provokes a battle.
A Midsummer Night’s Dream is one of the most unforgettable plays about love written by William Shakespeare. The play includes the four main characters: Lysander, Hermia, Demetrius, and Helena. Lysander and Demetrius, who fight for Hermia’s love, have anointed by Oberon, fairy king, and his servant, Puck, with a love-juice. This juice causes the four lovers to fall in or out of love with each other. Without knowing that their actions are controlled by the potion, the lovers are ironically convinced that they fall in love because of essential "reasons".

Key events are: when Oberon sees the trouble between the love-triangle of Lysander, Hermia, Helena, and Demetrius, he decided to help.

Malvolio says “There is example for’t: the lady of Strachy married the yeomen of the wardrobe -.” This would be funny because Sir Toby Belch, Sir Andrew Aguecheek and Fabien, a friend of theirs, are hiding in the bushes listening and watching Malvolio. While he is day-dreaming he comes across the love letter. This is a joke as it was written by Maria, a maid, Sir Toby and Sir Andrew to get revenge on Malvolio as he is so big headed.
A Midsummer Night’s Dream, was the most enjoyable drama for me. This Shakespearean play mixed two very different worlds into an entertaining story about love, magic, and an extremely bad play. In true Shakespearean fashion, this play is complex, multilayered, and filled with many symbols. Some of these symbols include dreams, a love potion, and again, one very bad play. One of the main elements in this play is the mixing of different worlds.
