Storyboard Text

  • Now, fair Hippolyta, our nuptial hour draws on apace, four happy days bring in another moon: but O, methinks how slow this old moon wanes!
  • Four days will quickly steep themselves in night; Four nights will quickly dream away the time; and then the moon, like to a silver bow new bent in heaven, shall behold the night of our solemnities. 
  • Full of vexation come I, with complaint against my child, my daughter Hermia. Stand forth, Demetrius. My noble lord, this man hath my consent to marry her. Stand forth, Lysander; and, my gracious Duke, this man hath bewitched the bosom of my child
  • Thanks, good Egeus: what's the news with thee?
  • So will I grow, so live, so die, my lord, ere I will yield my virgin patent up unto his lordship whose unwished yoke my soul consents not to give sovereignty.
  • Either to die the death, or to abjure for ever the society of men.
  • ... I have a widowed aunt... Her house is about twenty miles from Athens, and there, gentle Hermia, I can marry you...
  • My good Lysander, I swear to thee by Cupid's strongest bow... In that same place thou hast appointed me, tomorrow truly will I meet with thee.
  • ... Look, here comes Helena
  • God speed, fair Helena! Whither away?
  • Call you me fair? That fair again unsay!... O teach me how you look and with what art you sway the motion of Demetrius' heart!
  • Take comfort: he no more shall see my face; Lysander and myself will fly this place.
  • Demetrius thinks not so... I will go tell him of fair Hermia's flight; then to the wood will he tomorrow night pursue her; and for this intelligence, if I have thanks, it is a dear expense.
