Full of vexation come I, with complaint
Against my child, my daughter Hermia. –
Stand forth, Demetrius. – My noble lord,
This man hath my consent to marry her. –
Stand forth, Lysander. – And my gracious duke,
This man hath bewitch’d the bosom of my child. –
Thou, thou, Lysander.
– William Shakespeare
A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Act 1, Scene 1. An angry Egeus complaints to Duke Theseus that his daughter Hermia is disobeying his wish that she marry Demetrius and she wants to wed Lysander instead. He effectively accuses Lysander of witchcraft: putting a spell on his daughter’s heart.
