Love Hath It’s Hitches
A Discussion of the Difficulty of Love
Throughout history many tales have been told on how difficult or petty and unfair love is. Many of the stories have a truth to them that doesn’t appear in such other stories.

Love is a dangerous and fickle thing. It talks not of peace or beauty, but instead of painful longing and distress.
The previous statement plays a role of great importance also when Titania’s husband, Oberon, falls into a state of jealousy and sends Puck to bewitch his mistress. She...
