In Act I, Scene 1, the characters, including the lovers, speak mostly in blank verse (unrhymed iambic pentameter). That changes when Lysander suggests that he and Hermia run away. Hermia responds to him in rhymed verse, and the rhymes continue for the rest of that scene.

How does the shift from blank verse to rhymed verse change the tone?

A. The tone becomes informal and humorous as the lovers make ridiculous rhymes.

B. The tone becomes more formal as the lovers start speaking in rhyme.

C. The tone becomes more romantic as the lovers start speaking in rhyme.

D. The tone becomes more informal as the lovers begin to speak in rhyme.

    Hi,

    I would say C, " The tone becomes more romantic as the lovers start speaking in rhyme."
