The choice for my anazlying of a character in Midsummer Night’s Dream was to make a magazine for the character of my choice which was Helena. I choose Helena since I thought that she was a character that was picked on by a lot of the other characters in the story, I also choose Helena because I thought that she would be easier to analyze and figure out. Helena is a girl that loves Demetrius but that hates him so I really thought that Helena is either determined or desperate, I did this because she must be determined or desperate when she hatches her “incredible” plan to get Demetrius back on line 246-250 when she says “I will go tell him of fair Hermia’s flight: Then to the wood will he to-morrow night Pursue her; and for this intelligence If i have thanks, it is a dear expense: But herein mean I to enrich my pain, To have his sight thither and back again.” She will betray her friend to get back the one that she loves and to me that is either desperate or determined. The other reason as to why is desperate is because Demetrius hates her like when in Act 2 Scene 1 Demetrius says “I’ll run from thee and hide me in the brakes/ and leave thee to the mercy of wild beasts” which means that Helena still loves Demetrius even though he would leave her to the beasts to die.
