what is shakespeare saying about love in this quote"I wish my father looked but with my eyes"-- i get that it means that everyone has their own perspective on how they see one another but is there any other idea?

  • shakespeare -

    What play, act, and scene is this from?

    Out of context, it's almost impossible to tell.

  • shakespeare -

    How about taking "but with my eyes" to mean "the way I see them" (Lysander & Demetrius).

  • shakespeare -

    A Midsummer Night's Dream.
    Act 1, scene 1 (Hermia)

  • shakespeare -

    Considering the context -- I,i of A Midsummer's Night's Dream, you're right. Hermia wishes her father would look upon the man she wants to marry with her eyes and appreciate him as she does.
