Who is Lysander?
2 Answers | Add Yours
Lysander is a character in "A Midsummer Night's Dream". He is specifically Hermia's boyfriend, and they run away to elope. Puck accidentally squirts love juice in his eyes and when Lysander wakes up he then falls in love with Helena, following her around trying to win her over. Lysander is quite often compared to Romeo from William Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet". He is a hopeless romantic despite the major obstacles he faces in pursuit of love. Hope that helps some!
Lysander is the youth in love with Hermia. Their relationship is strained because Lysander cannot marry and love her openly due to her father's wishes. Hermia's father wishes for her to marry Demetrius instead. Eventually, Lysander and Hermia will elope. The two will get involved in a tangle with Helena and Demetrius when Puck's love potion tricks go awry.
