Demetrius, I’ll avouch it to his head,
Made love to Nedar’s daughter, Helena,
And won her soul; and she, sweet lady, dotes,
Devoutly dotes, dotes in idolatry,
Upon this spotted and inconstant man.

– William Shakespeare

A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Act 1, Scene 1. Lysander dishes the dirt on love rival Demetrius and questions his constancy, as he fights for the right to wed Hermia. He brands Demetrius a player, accusing him of being morally flawed and fickle in his affections. He reveals that Demetrius first wooed and won the love of Hermia’s friend Helena, and now Helena obsesses over this unfaithful man. While Lysander questions Demetrius’ devotion to Helena, he portrays Helena’s affection as subservient and a one-side form of worship – "idolatry," he terms it. It is very clear that Lysander does not like Demetrius.
