Love?   Is love controlled by human beings who love one another or is love controlled by a higher power?   There are many people who believe that a higher power has control over love.   An example of a higher power would be a cupid, a flying angel-type creature who is supposed to shoot arrows at people to make them fall in love.   There are other people who reject the idea that a higher power controls love and that the people who experience love can control it.   In the novel, "A Midsummer Night's Dream", by William Shakespeare, several examples of love's association with a higher power are presented.   With the use of examples from the above novel, this essay will discuss the evidence that love is associated with a higher power.   Examples like: Thesius arranging a marriage between himself and Hippolyta, Egeus choosing who Hermia should marry and the fairies who have the ability to control love in the Enchanted Forest.
