A Midsummer Night's Dream

~Comparison between Theseus & Oberon~

Theseus and Oberon are similar in some ways yet very different in other ways.

They both have power over people and are fit worthy to command.

Some similar qualities the two share are that they are leaders of their people and

hold power. Theseus has the power over an army and Oberon has a mysterious

right-hand man known as Puck who does Oberon's dirty work using majic.

Another quality they have in common is that they keep a promise. Theseus is a

man of his word and if he says something, you can count on it to be done. Oberon will

not take anything lightly. If something is not done, he will do it himself or call on Puck.

Theseus and Oberon are also very different in many ways. Their minds function

alike in some ways but very different in other situations.

Theseus is always open to

suggestions and trys to make the right choice by his own discretion. Oberon will only

have it his way or no way at all. He does not want to take someone else's opinion into


Theseus is also a caring person. He wants everyone to be happy and make their

situation better. Oberon, on the other hand, cares for no one but himself and will use

force to get what he wants. He is very selfish.

Both Theseus and Oberon have some thoughts and actions which are very similar

yet they also have thoughts and actions which are miles apart. In my opinion, they would

make a good ruling body if put together.
