Then George warned Lennie to keep away from her; “Listen to me you crazy bastard, don’t you even look at that bitch. I don’t care what she says and what she does, I seen ‘em poison before but never seen no piece of jail bait worse than her.” Curley’s wife causes tension on the ranch because she annoys and embarrasses Curley by wandering around the ranch flirting. This makes Curley angry and feel humiliated because his wife is always seeking the attention of other men. Curley got angry with the other worker because his wife is often disappearing and he felt as if the other man laughed at him because he could not keep control of his wife. “If you can’t keep control of your god-damn wife what do you want me to do about it?” Curley’s wife’s behaviour on the ranch angered Curley so much that he often vented his anger on the other men because Lennie was laughing to himself.
Nobody couldn’t git me tuh rie no rag on mah head if Ah had hair lak dat” (hurston 47). Because Janie’s hair is long, straight, and beautiful, many men lusted after it and Joe refused to allow this. He made her bind it so men could not see it, but his jealousy ultimately caused him to lose Janie completely. The head rags she was required to wear constrained her femininity and identity. Janie was forced into hiding her real self, being what her husband waned her to be.
When Nick and Daisy are alone for the first time she states, “Well, I’ve had a very bad time…and I’m pretty cynical about everything” (21). Daisy speaks as if her life is completely miserable and she also doesn’t seem to believe that any of it is her fault. What a lie. From the very beginning of their [Tom and Daisy] marriage, Daisy knew Tom was unfaithful, “If he left the room for a minute she’d look around uneasily and say ‘Where’s Tom gone?’ and wear the most abstracted expression until she saw him coming in the door” (82). Before this line, Jordan remarks that she’s “never seen a girl so mad about her husband,” it’s more like Daisy was mad with worry that her husband was off with some other woman.
Nathaniel Hawthorne goes into depth about sins that most people don’t want to hear about. During the time period of The Scarlet Letter, adultery was extremely frowned upon, and was punishable by death. Dimmesdale kept the guilt and the pain of what he had done bundled up inside; Hester`s sin was brought to light she stood on a scaffold alone as people watched; Chillingworth was letting his anger and hatred control his very being. Hester along with her baby had nothing else to do, but stand and watch as her lover stood by. As she was tried for the very thing he should be tried for.
There may seem to be many motivations for villains throughout the times but as we study these scoundrels we find that generally they are motivated by pure jealousy, or a need of superiority. They utilize manipulation, both physically and mentally in order to achieve their goals and show a lack of remorse. Stephan King’s “Misery”, provides us with a very graphical depiction in Annie Wilkes a sadistic, mentally unstable retired nurse, who has a desire for power and control. Annie goes to tortuous extremes on her captive Paul Sheldon to realize this. Iago from Shakespeare’s play Othello is also a power hungry villain who enjoys having people under his control, he is driven by extreme jealousy and the motivation, revenge.
"I don't tell the truth. I tell what out to be the truth. And if that is sinful, then let me be damned for it. Discuss the dramatic importance of Blanche's lies to the play. In A Streetcar Named Desire, the main character Blanche DuBois is a character that is shaped and damaged by her experiences and her past, therefore using lies and deceit to try and fix her life from the downward tumble it was taking.
The concept of acting and lying is trying to convince their audience, trapping them with the choice of words. They both are sneaky and impressing or convincing you is primarily the main thing that they care about. A liar can be a sensational actor, while an actor can be a sensational liar. A liar an actor may seem the same but they have different motives for the reason of their lies. An actor lies for the character that they are playing and a liar simply lies for themselves.
Also, growing up in a world where a tiny bit of prosperity can make a person go crazy has made Iago very selfish and cares about no one but himself. For example, his loving wife who serves him well, and who has contributed in the most important part of his plan, is killed by him because he does not want his plot to leak out. The opinions he expresses shows he think women are trash, and are nothing but “slaves”. Humans don’t usually think this way unless they grew up in a place where woman are only competitions who might steal their food, money, or even life. There women have to be eliminated
Although it was Hamlet who wooed her, and with whom she was intimate it is Hamlet himself who later chastises her for her impious actions. “Get thee to a/nunnery, go: farewell. Or, if thou wilt needs/marry, marry a fool; for wise men know well enough/what monsters you make of them. To a nunnery, go,/and quickly too.” (III.i.131), he commands her, leaving her without a response. By saying these words to her he is crassly calling her a harlot, and making to appear that he never really loved her.
Beginning with David's wig, his vain attempt to pass as a member of a higher society that has already dropped the wig from fashionable dress, and ending with Faulkland's last attempt to trick Julia into admitting base motives for loving him, no one willingly presents things as they really are. In fact, many of the characters lie outright. Fag lies to Sir Anthony for Jack about the son's reasons for being in Bath, and Lucy lies to Sir Lucius about who is writing love letters to him. Other characters simply misrepresent themselves. Jack masquerades as Ensign Beverley in order to win Lydia's love, while Mrs. Malaprop tries to appear more sophisticated by peppering her speech with fancy vocabulary that she neither means nor understands.
