Shakespeare ... makes Demetrius say to a young lady who follows him into a lonely wood that he wonders she will trust herself (bei ...
For, ere Demetrius looked on Hermia's eyne,
He hailed down oaths that he was only mine,
And I have found Demetrius, like a jewel,
Mine own, and not mine own.
To her, my lord,
Was I betrothed ere I saw Hermia;
All the faith, the virtue of my heart,
The object and the pleasure of mine eye,
Is only Helena.
Nay, I'll go with thee, cheek by jowl.
Do I entice you? Do I speak you fair?
Or rather do I not in plainest truth
Tell you I do not nor I cannot love you?
My love to Hermia,
Melted as the snow, seems to me now
She is a woman, therefore may be wooed;
She is a woman, therefore may be won.
O that a lady, of one man refused,
Should of another therefore be abused!
