Brabantio, furious by the intentions of marriage of his daughter to “the Moor” believes that Othello used drugs and witchcraft to steal his daughter from him “O thou foul thief! Where hast thou stowed my daughter… though hast enchanted her” (1ii62-64) this overstatement shows the sudden disregard of Othello’s previous power in the community as an army general and the immediate hatred he receives as a result of the colour of his skin. Iago once again plans to ruin Othello as he suspects his wife has been unfaithful with Othello, and goes out to destroy his marriage, just adding to Iago’s anger causing him to

They lack morals and are filled with emptiness that resulted from the constant money chase throughout their lives. The new rich are also represented through the ashes. They shower themselves in selfish pleasures and have no care for others in life. These ashes also represent the poor who additionally lack morals as they live in silent agony. Not only do the ashes have a symbolic meaning in the book but also embody the hollowness of people in the world today.
There is a saying, “Money is the root of all evil.” This is true if the money is obtained through ill-gotten ways. What happened to Tom Walker is symbolic of what can happen to any human consumed by greed. He or she will lose their soul to the obsession. There were many important themes present in this story that relate to choices we make and the consequences that comes with it. Money and material things do not truly satisfy a person's life or make a person happy.
Myrtle Wilson is ashamed of her social position in life because she is poor. First off, when she is with Tom, (which is wrong in the first place) she is lifted of her under-class blemishes, even though Tom has abused her. When Tom and Nick go into town to the apartment party, Nick states, “Making a short deft movement, Tom Buchanan broke her nose with his open hand”(37). It is never okay no matter what situation a person is in to hit a woman. Tom is so arrogant that he thinks he can do whatever he wants.
The god’s “are deaf when [they] pray to them…the sky is deaf”(Ant. 1193,1200). They don’t answer them and give the people nothing. The city—people and animals alike—is infected with the plague Creon has selfishly given it. Creon refuses to give Polyneices a proper burial because he believes that he is a traitor, sentenced Antigone to death, and “[has] trampled on God’s right”(Ant.
The car she was driving was called a “death car as the newspapers described it and didn’t stop; it came out for the gathering darkness, wavered tragically for a moment and then disappeared around the next bend (Fitzgerald 100).” When Nick Caraway confronts Gatsby about the accident and asks Gatsby “was Daisy driving?” and Gatsby confesses that “Yes, but of course I’ll say that I was. You see, when we left New York she was very nervous, she though it would be steady her to drive –and this woman rushed out as just as we were passing a car coming the other way. It all happened …it must have killed her instantly (Fitzgerald 120).” Gatsby’s personal trait of loyalty for Daisy even made him take blame for an accident (which resulted in a tragic murder) that Daisy commits. These actions make Gatsby not only a loyal guy, but a great guy as he even dies because of the blame that he took for her when the murdered woman decides to take
The two reluctantly agree, despite her being very intoxicated. They are awakened and immediately regret their decision when they learn she was killed in a car accident, after crashing full speed into the rear of a police cruiser while on the interstate. This petrifies the narrator, and he is searching for answers about what could have made her so upset and if it was truly an accident or if she could have made the decision to end her life that night. Miles finds the quote circled in her water-damaged copy of the biography where in the margin she had
