Girl’s Gossip–Helena’s Desperate Love

The poster I made is based on William Shakespeare’s story, A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The character I chose to do is Helena. I chose Helena because of her strong characterization in the story. Her desperate love is shown in “But herein mean I to enrich my pain, to have his sight thither and back again. (Shakespeare 250-251) Helena will do anything to get Demetrius’s attention. Helena is also confused about why Demetrius doesn’t love her “Through Athen I am thought as fair as she, But what of what, Demetrius thinks not so “(Shakespeare 228-229) Even though the people in Athens also think she is beautiful, but Demetrius does not think so. Which is the only thing that matters.
