You have arrived at the following address: ‘Though She Be But Little, She Is Fierce’: Quote & Analysis1 / Shakespeare Quotes2 / Popular Shakespeare Quotes3 / ‘Though She Be But Little, She Is Fierce’: Quote & Analysis …… ‘Though she be but small, she is fierce,’ says Helena in Act 3, Scene 2 of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, referring to her friend Hermia.
Hermia is one of the two women who make up the pair of lovers known as “the lovers.” Shakespeare dazzles the audience with the changing love quadrangle in this play, making it nearly impossible to follow the plot.
Her father orders Hermia to marry Demetrius, a rich young nobleman, but she is in love with Lysander and refuses. Her father takes her to the Duke, who informs her that if she does not marry Demetrius, she will spend the rest of her life in a nunnery.
Hermia is a powerful woman in Shakespeare’s works. She defies her father, which was impossible for Elizabethan women to do since a father’s word was law and final – there was no appeal. Women suffer greatly in Shakespeare’s plays as a result of men’s treatment of them. Hermia is one of the rebels among them.

Shakespeare is rarely kind to women in his work, despite his legendary status in the literary canon, which is not so much deliberate as a result of his time. A Midsummer Night’s Dream, more than any other play, exemplifies this. Men treat women inhumanely at every turn: Demetrius continually dismisses and insults Helena after sleeping with her, Egeus threatens to have Hermia killed for refusing to marry Demetrius, and Oberon, jealous of Titania, plays with her mind. Helena is also petty and obsessive, and her whole personality is characterized by her unrequited love for Demetrius. There is one exception to this law, however: Hermia. Despite the patriarchal powers she is continually confronted with, Hermia is spunky, caring, and fearless, and she represents a feminist viewpoint in Shakespeare’s plays through her inability to follow Egeus, her friendship with Helena, and her refusals of both Demetrius and Lysander’s sexual advances.
Hermia is openly defying her father, Egeus’s will, despite the fact that it will result in her death: she and Lysander are profoundly in love, but Egeus wants her to marry Demetrius. Even when Egeus addresses the matter to Duke Theseus, the ruling authority in Athens, Hermia remains unmoved, even as Theseus portrays Egeus as being “as a deity” in his relationship with Hermia and well within his rights to have her executed or sent to a convent (1.1.47). She also goes so far as to reject Demetrius in front of the Duke:
