Second, this shows that Tybalt was malicious when it came to the Montagues and he felt hate whenever he saw anyone of them. To sum it all up, Tybalt's unfriendly and resentful approach to the Montagues were one of the many reasons he bid farewell early in the story. Tybalt's turbulence was another one of the main reasons of his early termination in Romeo and Juliet. As an example, in the first act, Tybalt threatened Benvolio and said, "Turn thee, Benvolio. Look upon thy death."
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
Indeed, Cox claims he is "satanic in his energy, intelligence and daring contempt for goodness." Othello, initially, is a truly noble figure. We hear Iago and Roderigo, however, referring to him as a “thick-lips” and an “old black ram” which seems to oppose others’ descriptions of him and the character we see in the play. A.C. Bradley argues that the downfall of Othello is Iago’s fault, as he states “…these worthy people, who are so successful, popular and stupid are mere puppets in his hands who at the motion of his finger must contort themselves in agony, while all the time, they believe that he is their one true friend and comforter.” This is open to discussion as Othello must be attributed some responsibility, however small, as to why he believed Iago instead of Desdemona since the audience believe he shouldn’t have believed him so quickly and should have discussed the claims with Desdemona. Othello is quite easily convinced of Desdemona's infidelity considering Iago has no real proof which shows how much Othello trusts and relies on Iago.
There is no doubt in « Othello » as to the role Shakespeare has given Iago, he is the villain, masterful at deceit he generates most evil in the play. The clever soldier, his incredible acting allows him to be two or three completely different people. During most of the Act the audience finds itself constantly trying to find a motive for Iago’s actions but finds none that can justify what he is about to do. What does seem to come back again and again is his view on women which he sees as sex rapacious and a danger to his machiavellian plans. Scene 1 offers us a good preview as to what Iago is going to do for the rest of the Act and ultimately the rest of the play.
Pia Brinkschulte February 20, 2012 ELA 30S Mr. Grynol Othello In Shakespeare’s Othello, the main antagonists Iago, starts off from being simply jealous, to turning revengeful and obsessive, making perversive decisions for his need of power and control. Critic A.C. Bradley suggests that this longing to satisfy power is Iago’s main motivation and driving force for his acts and behaviour throughout the play. The chief reason for Iago’s vindictiveness is that Othello chose Cassio over Iago to make him his Lieutenant. Iago feels rejected and despised, he is very bitter towards Othello who downgraded his service and experience in favour of the arithmetic skills that Cassio has. Because Iago’s career path is blocked by a mere lack of paper qualification he first begins to start developing feelings of revenge on Cassio who stole his job.
The character of Edmund in Shakespeare’s King Lear a complex antagonist whose quest for power, and the treatment he deserves from society fuels the subplot. Cunning, deceitful, and a villain, Edmund will do whatever it takes to achieve his objectives, even if it means betraying the people who love him most. Edmund plays a key role in setting the stage for the disaster waiting to unfold, which is the subplot. Initially, the audience sympathizes with Edmund’s character; society treats him poorly, and his own father publicly embarrasses him. In Act 1 Scene 1, when Kent asks Gloucester if Edmund is his Gloucester’s son, he replies “his breeding hath been at my charge” (1.1.9) yet Gloucester “blushed to acknowledge [Edmund]” (1.1.10).
Dr. Roylott is presented a scary, unwanted man. This is found when Helen Stoner describes her father ‘he became the terror of the village’. The adjective ‘terror’ shows that he causes not just unrest within his village, but has manipulated the village through his actions and words to fear him. The fact that he has caused this, shows that he thrives off negative energy. This makes the reader feel sad as they realise that his confidence and happiness will grow as Sherlock hits setbacks and emits negative energy, which will dampen Holmes’s spirits.
The character of Iago is presented to the viewer early on as the obvious villain of the play. His initial exploitation of Othello and Desdemona’s marriage makes the viewer aware of his calculating and manipulative nature, which is further emphasized by his continual deceit of Othello. Despite the ease with which he enacts his controlled and cunning plans, Iago sometimes seems to the viewer as an irrational, vengeful character acting out of jealousy. This trait can make him appear illogical and unreasonable but emphasis his pure evil nature. Iago’s initial soliloquies reveal his deceptive nature, he is presented as Janus, the 2 faced man, as he reveals his plan which becomes more and more complex and reliant on his continual manipulation of the people around him.
Thar. Experience 170 The Idiot “play analysis” In “The Idiot” I think Dostoyevsky was trying to show how twisted our society is, and how even a saint of a person is treated badly without deserve. I believe Dostoyevsky wrote this play with mostly realistic qualities, such as how people take advantage of “the nice guy” all the time with Prince Myshkin continuously being tricked by everyone he knew, and how the power of love makes you do crazy things with Rogozhin killing Nastasya even though he would have given anything to be with her. I thought most of the actors did a really good job. I did not like how some of the actors played double roles because in an already confusing play trying to follow “who is who” is not an easy task.
I hate the word, as I hate hell, all Montague’s, and thee Have at thee, coward” Tybalt has a small temper and will use any chance to start a fight or argument with the Montague’s. Luhrmann appropriates this by his facial expressions, every time he talks about the Montague’s his crunches up into a snake like sneer. During the party Tybalt is angry
