  William Shakespeare’s comedy,, is a story of two lovers, Hermia and Lysander, who are on the run from Hermia’s father, Egeus, who wants Hermia . In A Midsummer Night's Dream, Egeus the father of Hermia is presented as an overbearing and protective father. We can see this because, Shakespeare tells us how when he comes to Theseus's court, Egeus says, "Full of vexation, come I." this quote and the adjective "vexation", tells us that Egeus is angry and he says he, ".come I, with complaint.".

Summary. This scene opens in Theseus' palace in Athens. It is four days before his wedding to Hippolyta, the former queen of the Amazons, and Theseus is impatient with how slowly time is moving. An angry Athenian nobleman Egeus, enters, with his daughter Hermia and her two suitors Lysander and Demetrius. Egeus explains to Theseus that he wants his daughter to marry Demetrius, but that she loves Lysander, who has "bewitched" her with songs of love and gifts. Egeus asks the Duke to uphold the ancient law of Athens, which gives the father.

An award-winning author for his long-running Cork O’ Connor series (Trickster’s Point, , etc.), Krueger aims higher and hits harder with a stand-alone novel that shares much with his other setting is still his native Minnesota, the tension with the region’s Indian population remains palpable. What was/were Egeus's complaint(s) to Thesus? A. Demetrius has permission to marry Hermia but will not B. Demetrius does not love Hermia C. Hermia has become willful and disobedient toward Egeus because of Lysander D. Lysander has wooed Hermia without permission E. Demetrius loves Hermia.
