Meaning and analysis

Kwize Master As Helena and Hermia are fighting, Helena concedes that despite her small size, Hermia shows a fierce temperament. This remark is clumsy, because if it can be interpreted as a compliment, Hermia takes it very badly by considering that Helena mocks her height and therefore insults her.
