(1.1.15-22). This promotion causes hate to harbor in Iago, igniting his bitterness towards not only Othello, but Cassio as well. Iago starts feeling inferior to Cassio's blissful life and intelligence, making himself feel worthless. These feeling put Cassio in key position in Iago's poisonous plan to get revenge on Othello. With suspicions and jealousy rising in Iago, he burns with thought that Othello could have gone to bed with his wife, Emilia.
All that glitters isnt gold Theme of Ignorance and Blindness Beginning of the story--- King Lear true ignorance is shown when he asked his daughters to tell him how much they love him... shows how he has become ignorant with his enormous amounts of power--- Middle- after he has been kicked out of his kingdom begins to notice his wrong doings Elements Character- KL: King Lear, Duke of Albany, Earl of Gloucester HMT: Government and High class, Offred, women in general ( ignorant to men in society) other themes: power and its affect on the sanity and common sense in society eyes in hmt Ignorance of Women, Ignorance of Men, How the ignorance of both genders affects the other gender Ignorance of Males in Society---- kl -kl,albany and gloucester Handmaids Tale- Commanders, NEED FOR POWER, MIS TREATMENT OF WOMEN, Punishment( banishment of Cordelia in King Lear) OVERALL BLINDNESS---- RESULTS OF THESE CHARACTERSITCS OF MALES IN SOCIETY In both works, ignorance is a trait noticeable in both female and male characters but because of the dominant roles of men in both King Lear and The Handmaids Tale , ????????? Through the male characters' need to power and dominance, their mistreatment of women and the unjust punishemnet they set out for others, one can clearly notice the errors of the characters ways and therefore are exemplary examples of the strong inclusion of the theme of ignornace in both works. To begin, in both works many of the major male characters show ill feelings towards women, ultimately treating them poorly. In King Lear , the title character of the King has moments in which he shows his lack of respect for the women of his court, namely his three daughters. ???????????
Medea’s extreme emotional attachments can only be expressed through extreme measures. Circumstance causes her to fall in love with Jason, and when she does, he becomes the centre of her emotional universe — even when he spurns her and that love turns to hate, the man continues on as the zenith in her heart, the motivation behind her actions. When Jason takes another wife, Medea can no longer justify the wrongs she committed in the name of their love. The sheer force of her grief and remorse inspires her to ‘surrender to anguish’, and she gives voice to wretched lamentations that outline her vicious intent towards the royal house. Fearing that Medea will do ‘some irreparable harm to (his) daughter’, Creon banishes her from his land, setting in motion a chain of events that lead to the final tragedy of the play.
He is upset by this development because he loves Desdemona and had asked her father for her hand in marriage. Iago hates Othello for promoting a younger man named Michael Cassio above him, and tells Roderigo that he plans to use Othello for his own advantage. Iago is also angry because he believes, or at least gives the pretence of belief, that Othello slept with his wife Emilia. Iago denounces Cassio as a scholarly tactician with no real battle experience; in contrast, Iago is a battle-tested soldier. By emphasising Roderigo's failed bid for Desdemona, and his own dissatisfaction with serving under Othello, Iago convinces Roderigo to wake Brabantio, Desdemona's father, and tell him about his daughter's elopement.
To remove people who reminds him that his nothing but a gentility and honor pretender, he plans to havoc their lives one by one. The other area of his jealousy is Cassio’s pretty face; that Iago clearly revealed his unpleasantness toward this through his words, “Cassio hath a daily beauty in his life that makes me ugly.” Act5 scene
She is cast into exile while her sisters are appointed power over the land and they begin to rule. One of the critical betrayals within this play is the betrayal of King Lear’s daughters towards him. After obtaining their father’s kingdom, both Goneril and Regan quickly reveal themselves as unloving and uncaring as they deprive the retired king of his privileges. Due to the King’s unjust decision, he winds up not only destroying and diminishing his own authority but also, all authority in Britain.
Arguably, haste’s negative consequences only begin after Romeo and Juliet have been married. Mercutio’s death, caused by his overbearing chauvinistic personality and his need to defend Romeos diminishing family honor ultimately cost him his life. Romeo feels as if he needs to avenge Mercutio’s death, reacting with, “fire-eyed fury be my conduct now… Either thou or I, or both, must go with him.” Expressing his injudicious and imprudent plan to kill Tybalt. Romeo goes ahead with his vengeful killing, failing to realize the
Goneril and Regan pledge their love for their father, while Cordelia refuses to speak and when probed finally states that she cannot “heave her heart into her mouth,” (Act I p.7 96-97) that she loves him exactly as much as a daughter should love her father, and that her sisters wouldn’t have husbands if they loved their father as much as they claim. An enraged Lear disowns Cordelia and splits her share of the kingdom between the remaining two sisters. This is a prime example of the beginning of destruction across familial, personal and social aspects. Lear pits his daughters against one another in a selfish endeavour to boost his own pride, but in doing this he also destroys a very crucial aspect within the monarchy by removing the one daughter who has not saught out to destroy him and the foundation he had built for his kingdom. In disowning Cordelia this breaks the natural order of things because in doing so he has severed the natural bond that a father and daughter share, as well he has personally destructed himself with this decision because he has given up on his favoured daughter.
“Othello the Moor of Venice” written by Shakespeare is a tragedy about the downfall of a great soldier blinded by jealousy and love, insecurity and pride. Othello’s characteristics both positive and negative are what eventually lead him to murder is loving wife Desdemona. Othello’s jealousy was caused by Iago’s plot. By “pushing the right buttons” Iago turns the loving husband, Othello, against his wife Desdemona by insinuating that she is having an affair with Cassio, Othello’s Lieutenant and loyal friend. At one point Iago makes a speech in regards to jealousy calling it “the green-eyed monster” putting doubts in Othello’s head.
Shakespeare exposes Othello’s hamartia which is his self-control of jealousy. Othello’s character is completely transformed as jealousy changes him into a monster whom tragically kills his faithful wife. His assertion of himself “not being so easily jealous” when Iago begins to manipulate Othello’s state of mind is negligible as the responder views his transformation of character due to jealousy. Through Iago’s cunning manipulation, Othello is convinced of Desdemona’s infidelity as he exclaims “blood…Iago..blood” which shows his utmost intention of killing her. Hence it is evident to see how jealousy has consumed Othello and how it is described as the “green eyed monster”.
