How does Shakespeare construct Iago's manipulation of Othello (act 3 scene3) Demonstrating Shakespeare's depiction of Iago's masterly manipulation of language in order to seek his sworn revenge on Othello, Act 3 Scene 3 is the longest scene of 'Othello' and occurs in the middle of the play. This scene is the first instance throughout the play that illustrates Iago putting his plan to manipulate Othello's thoughts and feelings about his wife's innocence and fidelity into execution. It is essential that the audience find Iago's performance here to be convincing, so that they are able to believe that Othello's trust in Iago would not be doubted before that in his wife, and consequently do not lose interest in the play emotionally. Subtly introducing Iago's manipulative behaviour to this scene, Shakespeare conveys... ...increases, which allows Iago to indirectly plant suspicions in Othello's mind through his use of language; 'I cannot think it/ That he would steal away so guilty-like,/Seeing your coming.' Since Iago is responding to an enquiry made by Othello here, it appears that he is merely answering to his superior, rather than manipulating his thoughts.

All popular references, literary criticisms and academic reviews of Shakespeare’s Hamlet of the past two hundred years have been little more than mere repetitions of the Hamlet depicted by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe on Wilhelm Meister’s Apprenticeship, first published in 1796. Throughout its nineteen chapters the novel contains numerous references to Hamlet, consisting mainly of conversations. Still, of all the theories on Hamlet referred to above, not one is based exclusively on the Meister’s own context and circumstances, and independently from Shakespeare’s version of the character. These references should not be seen as an independent analysis of Hamlet. They are linked to the Meister’s plot and events in such a way that it becomes impossible to study them separately without distorting Goethe’s view of the character in one way or another.

Shakespeare twisted the story of Macbeth Mac Findaech to suit his needs Jonathan Hughes-Khatib ENG3UE/Rockland District High School/Monday April 7th 2008 Shakespeare’s “Macbeth” is a play that features the fictional story of Macbeth, thane of Cawdor, Glamis and later king of Scotland. Most likely written in about 1606 the story revolves around Macbeth’s slaying of the “great King” (Shakespeare, page 8) Duncan and all of the guilt and supernatural happenings that occur afterword. Though sometimes taken as an actual historical account of what happened, most things in the play are very different from what actually happened during the rise and fall of the brave Macbeth Mac Findlaech. Macbeth’s entire character was changed, as was King Duncan’s, to fit the needs of William Shakespeare. Macbeth Mac Findlaech, the actual historical figure, has been almost vilified in society for how his character was portrayed in Shakespeare’s “Macbeth”.

But with a closer scrutiny of the characters themselves and the storylines, the readers can see just how ostensive these similarities are. because of experiencing similar situations, Hamlet and Simba react quite similarly to the circle of life, the presence of an evil uncle, and a visit from a ghost.
In response to this the unpopular King invited the most popular man in the country, William Shakespeare, and his theatre company to be titled The King’s Men, under which they produced new works under his patronage; Macbeth and Othello being two very important examples. When Shakespeare wrote Macbeth, he must have had James’ views in mind as some parts of the play were designed to be complimentary to him. Firstly Banquo (not Macduff) was a non-historical figure that James’ family considered being an ancestor of theirs, therefore Banquo is treated as a saint in the play.
