The Irony in Oberon's Plan


What is ironic about Oberon’s intentions regarding his plans for the use of his love potion?


He plans to use it on two people already in love with each other; therefore, its power is unnecessary.


He plans to use it to embarrass and shame one person and spitefully punish the other, which isn’t very loving behavior.


He plans to use it out of pity for someone being treated badly by a loved one and, yet doesn’t recognize that he treats his lover just as badly.


He plans to use it for revenge and as a joke, which is not what the flower’s power was meant to do.


He plans to use it to stop Theseus and Hippolyta’s wedding, which is contrary to the idea of a love potion.
