Othello says to her “It gives me wonder great as my content to see you here before me. O my soul’s joy!” (2.1.199-200). These beautiful and loving words are soon changed to hostility and rage with the thought of Desdemona’s betrayal. Both Desdemona and Hero are accused of being unfaithful through presented “ocular proof”, they are both disgraced by the leading male role, and they are young and inexperienced in the ways of love and both women are extremely forgiving after they have been mistreated by their suitors. Much Ado about Nothing was written by William Shakespeare as a comedy, but it could have very well been turned into a tragedy comparable to Othello.
This new language seems to show the sincerity of the king and his part of humanity he didn't show before. At the beginning, Richard believes that his speech is power, and language is powerful in the political sense. Later, once Richard is no longer king and his words don't have any political power, he manages to make language powerful in a different sense: his words are more moving and poetic. But does the audience feel sympathy for Richard as he changes? Act I is very important to set the play and the situation.
Compare ways in which Shakespeare presents a character changing in Much Ado About Nothing and Macbeth. Shakespearean romantic comedies such as ‘Much Ado About Nothing’ feature one prominent aspect, complex love relationships amongst different pairs of characters, whereby the audience expects two or more characters to inevitably fall in love. Contrastingly, Shakespearean tragedies, like ‘Macbeth’, indulge in a noble and respected character changing into a tragic Hero, eventually resulting in his death. Similarly, one of the mutual features is the change in characters caused by external influences, whereby Leonato, Don Pedro and Claudio influence Benedick to love Beatrice, whilst the witches and Lady Macbeth influence Macbeth to kill the king; as other characters pursue this change, these changes are inevitable. However, Shakespeare presents Benedick’s change in a more positive and light-hearted manner, whilst Macbeth’s change revolves around negativity and wrong-doing as the approach to each individual genre is different, where comedies are humorous and happy, whilst tragedies are gloomy and grief-stricken.
The initial crime of betrayal appears relatively minor compared to the horrific offenses committed by Medea. Aphrodite highlights her act of dispersion of love to be bsavage and immoral. Having ramifications that brought suffering upon Medea effecting her penetratingly and profoundly. Paragraph 1: Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love, is not very well appreciated in Euripides's Medea. Everywhere her hand is seen, destruction swiftly follows.
There is no doubt in my mind that Acheron felt the same way. “I don’t like your hair black.” Artemis stated. The fact that she could not have him look exactly the way she wanted made her very upset at times. When love is involved, it is easy to allow yourself be abused believing it is for the best of that relationship. Acheron loved Artemis so much that he was willing to allow her dark side to inflict scars emotionally and internally, which is extremely saddening.
Iago feels that the best way to do so is by manipulating Othello telling him that his wife is cheating on him with Cassio, who Iago coincidently hates as well. Iago reveals, “That thinks men honest that but seem to be so, and will as tenderly be led by the nose as asses are. I have ‘t. it is sengender’d. Hell and night must bring this monstrous birth to the worlds light” (Shakespeare 1.
Lady Macbeth’s Direct Influence of Macbeth The downfall of Macbeth is caused by two unparalleled sides of the same road that is merely Macbeth’s own personal weak conscious and the dominated physiological abuse of Lady Macbeth. The constant manipulation of Lady Macbeth directed at her husband operates as an assault to his duties as a man and spouse, along with substituting her husband’s ambitions and aspirations with her own thriving greed for power. The ability to think to beyond what is needed encourages not only the collapse of sanity in Macbeth but also the rationality of Lady Macbeth. “What need we fear who knows it, when none can call our pow’r to accompt? Yet who would have thought the old man to have had so much blood in him?”
In King Lear, Shakespeare successfully creates his own vocabulary and rules of grammar that assist in revealing the emotional intensity in the spoken words of a character. Tragedy is the highest form of drama therefore the diction would have to be adequately developed for the audience to gain an appreciation of the genre. This is particularly true to King Lear in Shakespeare’s reconstruction of sentences in order to heighten the emotional intensity of the character. In Lear’s speech the separation of verb and subject with long delaying or expanding interruptions conveys to the audience a sincerity of thought making the action seem genuine, familiar; compelling the audience to feel a sense of pity or fear (catharsis). According
Othello and Desdemona In the play, The Tragedy of Othello, Shakespeare really tests our conception as to what love is, and where it can or can't exist. Judging from the relationship between Desdemona and Othello, the play seems to say that marriage based on an innocent romantic love or profane love is bound to fail. Shakespeare is pessimistic about the existence and survival of a true type of love. There is a common thread of betrayal and deceit among his female characters, especially. Othello and Desdemona, as portrayed in the play, are the two greatest innocents there ever were.
Furthermore, Lord Henry influenced Mr. Gray’s love life by belittling women and saying “But adoring someone is certainly better than being adored. Being adored is a nuisance. You'll discover, Dorian, that women treat us just as humanity treats its gods. They worship us and keep bothering us to do something for them.” (Wilde, page 40). The above quote is basically saying that women are inferior and should be treated as such.
