Meaning and analysis

Kwize Master Helena complains that Demetrius rejects her love and is obsessed with Hermia, even though many think she is as beautiful as her rival. She notes that Cupid, the god of love, is always represented as blind, because love does not depend on what the eyes see but on what the mind imagines.
