Theseus is Skeptical

AMSND-4XNGRN

Theseus explains that he does not believe the young lovers' story.

Which lines from Hippolyta show she does NOT share his skepticism?

A

“Tis strange, my Theseus, that these lovers speak of.” (5.1.1)

B

“But all the story of the night told over, / And all their minds transfigured so together, / …grows to something of great constancy.” (5.1.24)

C

“It comprehends some bringer of that joy, / Or in the night, imagining some fear, / How easy is a bush supposed a bear!” (5.1.21)

D

“I never may believe / These antique fables, nor these fairy toys.” (5.1.3)

E

“And as imagination bodies forth / The forms of things unknown, the poet's pen / Turns them to shapes, and gives to airy nothing / A local habitation and a name.” (5.1.15)
