Comedies usually proceed on a circular journey: from order to chaos to order again.

Which of the following lines show the disorder in the fairy world?


“And we fairies, that do run /By the triple Hecate's team, /From the presence of the sun, /Follow darkness like a dream.” (5.1.373)


“First rehearse your song by rote, / To each word a warbling note: / Hand in hand, with fairy grace, / Will we sing, and bless this place.” (5.1.387)


“Therefore the winds, piping to us in vain, / As in revenge, have suck'd up from the sea / Contagious fogs; which, falling in the land, / Hath pelting river made so proud / That they have overborne their continents.” (2.1.88)


“Set your heart at rest; / The fairy land buys not the child of me.” (2.1.122)


“Perchance till after Theseus' wedding-day. / If you will patiently dance in our round, / And see our moonlight revels, go with us; / If not, shun me, and / I will spare your haunts.” (2.1.139)
