 just want YOU to listen.  Write down her feelings, who you think she might be talking to, what lines stand out and why.  That's it.

This is a young actress/woman performing the lines from "A Midsummer Nights Dream" by Shakespeare.  She is speaking as Helena, and here is the actual text of what she says....

Lo, she is one of this confederacy!

Now I perceive they have conjoined all three

To fashion this false sport, in spite of me.—

Injurious Hermia! Most ungrateful maid!

Have you conspired, have you with these contrived

To bait me with this foul derision?

Is all the counsel that we two have shared,

The sisters' vows, the hours that we have spent

When we have chid the hasty-footed time

For parting us—oh, is it all forgot?

All schooldays' friendship, childhood innocence?

We, Hermia, like two artificial gods,

Have with our needles created both one flower,

Both on one sampler, sitting on one cushion,

Both warbling of one song, both in one key,

As if our hands, our sides, voices, and minds,

Had been incorporate. So we grew together,

Like to a double cherry—seeming parted

But yet an union in partition—

Two lovely berries molded on one stem;

She seems to be angry at another women, perhaps a friend who has done her wrong.  Obviously they grew up together and she trusted her, and now for some reason the woman has done something to her that has upset her.  Speaking as Helena, the actress tells her former friend that she has hurt and insult her, and it is not ladylike.  Apparently this injurious friend has gotten together with two men to hurt or shame Helena.
