Iago states: “Thus do I ever make fool my purse” ( I.iii.374). Evidently, Iago takes advantage of Roderigo’s devotion by conning him in his money. Similarly, Iago uses Roderigo once more by convincing him to kill Cassio. Although, Roderigo is reluctant at first, he relents once Iago insists that this will win him Desdemona. Roderigo states: “I have no great devotion to the deed and yet he hath given my satisfying reasons.
Mercutio responsibilities Romeo for Tybalt killing him ‘I was hurt under your arm’ Romeo feels guilty about Mercutio’s death even though the audience know it is not his fault. Romeo shouts to Tybalt ‘fire-eyed fury be my conduct now’ in Mercutio’s absence Romeo says things that the audience would expect Mercutio to say. The Romeo who duels with Tybalt is the Romeo who Mercutio would call the “true” Romeo. The Romeo who sought to avoid confrontation out of concern for his wife is the person Juliet would recognize as her loving Romeo. Conclusion Romeo and Mercutio’s friendship is very unique and no other characters in the play have such an intense friendship.
This lets the audience gain an understanding of the motifs such as evil intentions, thoughts and counterparts in the human nature behind both corresponding literature. Earthly desires erupt from aspects of human nature as we gain the tendency to ponder on malignant thoughts. Shakespeare’s use of archetype in the play Othello examines this concept. He has manifested one of literature’s most complex archetypical villains, Iago, as a vehicle to convey the harsh and self-centred human nature that lies within us. Having not received the promotion, recurring motifs such as jealousy, greed and revenge overcloud Iago’s mind.
The only crime is pride.” Creon is killing her because he feels it will improve his image to his people so they will be fearful and obey his laws. In this way he is so full of pride that he can’t even think about the incredible emotional damage he inflicts on his own son Haimon, who is engaged to Antigone. Creon was selfish, and too late, he learned that he was wrong. His pride would not
It was the ultimate act of friendship and sacrifice, on George's part, to kill Lennie. He knew that Lennie would be lynched and hung for murdering Curley's wife. He also knew that Lennie didn't know any better, he had no idea the power of his own strength, he did not fully know the ramifications of what he had done, but he did know that it was bad and that he might get into trouble. George basically spared Lennie from a death filled with pain and suffering and Lennie almost had this moment of clarity when he knows what George has to do and he's ok with it. 3.
Since Jerry had no idea what he was doing as a criminal mastermind, he couldn’t successfully put across some guidelines for the two hit men. His greed also just wanted it done for himself, while he just basically sits back and lets it happen. This mistake is what leads to the three innocent lives being lost in the car, and later Jerry’s wife ends up being killed after not cooperating properly with one of the hit men. All Jerry wanted was the easy way out of his financial slump, but he ended up getting himself into much more than he asked
Was Macbeth to blame for his own downfall? Some may argue that Macbeth was merely a victim of the influences surrounding him—those which lead, ultimately, to his downfall—but the truth is, Macbeth had no one but himself to blame. His own carelessness, his superstition and dependence on prophecy or fate, as well as his weakness of character and lack of moral backbone all led to his downfall. First, his carelessness, while not a moral fault, is still an important part of Macbeth’s descent. For example, it was the number of people Macbeth had killed that led to the lord’s suspicions of him.
Admittedly, as sympathetic and understanding as readers are for Lennie, Lennie is still a danger to other lives. In many instances in the book, Lennie accidentally kills many lives but does not realize the significance of his mistakes. Lennie is a man with the mind of a child with an unequal match of formidable strength, hence committing murder without meaning to do so. In the scene when Lennie kills Curley’s wife, he has the same slightly panicked reaction as when he killed the rat and puppy earlier in the book. Readers then realize that Lennie doesn’t understand the difference between killing an animal and murdering a human, therefore putting other lives at risk.
O bear me, haste ye, spare not, To the ends of earth, More nothing than they who were not In the hour of birth!” (50-51) Creon now blames himself, he realizes his mistake in not consulting the senators, and for condemning Antigone so hastily despite her just reasoning. However, if it were not for one little detail we could blame Creon to the fullest: why did Antigone commit suicide? The loss of Antigone provoked additional
He doesn’t seem to have a conscience like Francis does; he is amazed that Francis feels bad at all ”you wanted to die because of that?” This shows that Larry could be still ruthless and that it didn’t mean anything to Francis. The major issue is the fact that he rapes Nicole: But when Larry is telling Francis “he’s tired” and “he wants to go” this shows that something mysterious is going on in Larry’s mind but Francis listens to Larry because he is a hero and everybody listens to Larry
