In the common world, the newfound love is believed to change people’s lives by giving them new perspective of the world – often beneficial but also often negative. In one of the most beloved work of Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Oberon, the king of the fairies, feel jealous of prideful minded Titania, the queen of the fairies, for which Oberon uses a magic love potion to hoodwink Titania into falling in love with a donkey-headed man. Similarly, in Hitchcock’s movie Vertigo, Scottie’s vertigo results him to be used as a victim for the cunning plan of Elster, Scottie’s old friend, for killing Elster’s wife. Nevertheless, Scottie ends up falling in love with Judy, a woman who disguises herself as Elster’s wife, which prevents Scottie to be aware of such plan until the end of the movie. Throughout both Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Hitchcock’s Vertigo, the romantic relationships convey that compelling sensation from newfound love interferes with the characters’ perceptions of reality, ultimately impeding the characters from seeing the truth. In order to depreciate the prideful mind of Titania, Oberon tricks her mind using a magical potion in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. As according to the plan, Bottom’s head is turned to a donkey’s head and Titania’s eyes are anointed with potion when Titania wakes up, disturbed by Bottom’s singing, and she quotes “…mine ear is much enamour’d of thy note; so is mine eye enthralled to thy shape; and thy fair virtue’s force perforce doth move me on the first view to say, o swear, I love thee” (3.1). Unaware of Oberon’s trick, elegant fairy queen Titania finds herself deeply in love with donkey-headed Bottom. In the real world, no such event can happen, unless due to disguised love... ... middle of paper ... ... reality, hoodwinking the person’s mind. In A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Titania’s eyes are anointed with magic love potion by Oberon to lower the prideful mind of Titania, resulting Titania to irresistibly in love with a donkey-head man name bottom. In Vertigo, due to the fact that Scottie falls in irresistible love with Madeleine/Judy, Scottie never gives suspicion over the peculiar behaviors of Judy. Nevertheless, when all the truths are revealed once the characters are back into right mind with the ability to perceive the world correctly, it is too late to undo all the mistakes that were made. The newfound love can give new perception of the world for the people but when the attraction becomes irresistible the newfound love only blinds people, leading them to their own embarrassment and tragedy, and only clearing away when it is too late to undo what has been done.
