Meaning and analysis

Kwize Master These words are said by Lysander to Hermia at the very beginning of the play. Lysander and Hermia are in love, but Hermia’s father would prefer his daughter to marry Demetrius. Lysander tries to convince Hermia that many obstacles can make true love very difficult. He then lists all the problems that may be encountered such as age difference or social difference. Here, Shakespeare makes an ironical comment on arranged marriage.
