Hermia is a character in “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”, written by Shakespeare. Her father wanted to betroth her to Demetrius, and she openly resisted, because she loved Lysander. Hermia is a very rebellious, resolute, and unreasoning passionate person, when her father wanted to betroth her to Demetrius, she openly resisted. Even if her father asked for privileges and told her if did not marry Demetrius and he will put her to death. She doesn’t care what others think or what they said about her love. Line 80: “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” (Shakespeare). She even runs away with her lover at all costs, Line 170 “Swear to thee by cupid’s strongest bow
By his best arrow with the golden head
By the simplicity of Venus’ doves
By that which knitted souls and prospers loves
And by that fire which burned the Carthage queen
When the false Troyan under sail was seen
By all the vows that ever men have broken
In that same place, thou hast appointed me
Tomorrow truly will I meet with thee” (Shakespeare). which shows she is brave. Because her father doesn’t let her, she marries Lysander, she takes him to run away at all costs. She the feudal etiquette. She is a brave girl with a strong personality.
