Race also determines how Othello perceives himself as a rough outsider, though he is nothing of the sort. Othello's race sets him apart, and makes him very self-conscious; it makes him work hard and look carefully after his reputation, so he is regarded as equal to the white people that surround him. Pride Especially important with regards to Othello; Othello is defensively proud of himself and his achievements, and especially proud of the honorable appearance he presents. The allegations of Desdemona's affair hurt his pride even more than they inflame his vanity and jealousy; he wants to appear powerful, accomplished, and moral at every possible instance, and when this is almost denied to him, his wounded pride becomes especially powerful. Magic Usually has something to do with Othello's heritage.
Some say that the root of all evil comes from money. This is so true in Mathilde’s case. She is so self-centered that she ignores, or just doesn’t realize how she hurts others. With us it’s the same problem. We are so greedy with trying to get the things that we want or dream about that we don’t realize that we are harming the ones that
Jenna Giammalva English 3 per.2 February 1, 2010 Ms. Lindroth Thesis: In the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Mark Twain exposes how ignorance causes violence, and how personal gain overrides moral deeds through the use of satire. Mark Twain’s Notice and Pap’s ongoing diatribe reveals how ignorance undercuts one’s credibility. For example, In Mark Twain’s Notice he cites, “Persons attempting to find a plot will be shot” (2). Twain is exposing the truth in satire throughout the novel and people who don’t understand that are ignorant. In more simple terms, if you only go away from the book with only the plot then you are stupid.
Envy can affect one’s actions towards others in a negative or positive manner. Readers notice in some novels this idea through certain characters envious actions. In Herman Melville’s novel, Billy Budd, Claggart, the antagonist, envy grows towards the protagonist, Billy Budd, throughout the novel. For unexplainable reasons Claggart hated and envied Billy’s innocent nature causing the platitude, “bad things happen to good people” to come in affect. If envy was not a strong factor in Claggart’s life then he would have been a respectable character in the novel.
His judgment is based on Robin Hood’s judgment as well, who is portrayed to be a hero in the storybook for stealing money from the avaricious people only. However, stealing is not the right way to fulfill justice. Clyde is also a victim of poverty by not having chance for
Instead, the cowboys are fined. This is seen as inadequate justice by the women of the brothel, who avenge by hiring two cowboys to murder the two men, despite one of the men seeking forgiveness for his unjust actions. Surely premeditated homicide is a more immoral crime than the unjust physical violence that was inflicted by the man. The ways of life depicted in unforgiven show how their society could be considered unconventional – their society is different from what is generally accepted in ours. However, due to how different their way of life is, these norms could be considered just.
Power and Powerlessness Lust for power can be the driving factor of pain and suffering to many people as they assert their control with little regard for the consequences and ramifications for their actions. Such ideas are toyed with in Steinbeck's novella Of Mice and Men (OMaM) in which the text explores the plight of individuals who willingly suffer at the hand of unfair power dichotomies due to the all pervasive allure of the American dream as seen with the eventual collapse of Lenny and George's dream of owning a ranch. Manipulation over another human can be used for their own benefit but is used in the novella as a way to protect the manipulated person. It is immediately apparent that George takes a parental roll in his relationship with Lennie. The sentence "Give it here!"
Iago uses strong contrasts such as these to provoke other characters in which it can be said that he is the most interesting because he is both the driving force of the plot and he causes a huge amount of destruction all of which he appears to have no real motive for, to the point that even he, himself looks for reasons to excuse his behaviour. However, whilst Iago is interesting as a villain for his sheer lack of motive, he can be said to be one of Shakespeare's predictable stock characters. For his role is to be the villain and nothing more. He represents a bitter man, who like many were extremely sexist towards women for he says that "In Venice they do not let God see their pranks, they dare not show their husbands ; their best conscience" implying that all Venetian women are unfaithful and sinful. Iago's view of women was shared in Shakespearean society for they were either placed on a pedestal or deemed as whores and rather sinful shown by the stereotypical women we have in the play "Othello" for Desdamona is our "white ewe", our faithful woman who is pure until her
