‘Is Così more about love than madness?’ Sarah Smith Louis Nowra’s play Cosi focuses deeply on the madness of each character, what makes them mad, how they are truly insane, but throughout this play we unfold a side to each of them that shows the audience how much love is incorporated in their lives. It may not be the typical type of love as in love for another person, but it just may be the love they have to something they care about in Roy’s case the theatre and performing, In Cherry’s case it was love at first sight between her a Lewis and for some it is definitely the love that each shares with another person.

Iago and Edmund both utilize trust and love as instruments of destruction while at the same time exacerbating inherent tensions within the relationships of their victims. Iago and Edmund exploit the love and trust of others in order to be able to manipulate their victims.

Logos appeal to reason, pathos appeal to emotions, and ethos appeal to the writer’s character. With these components you should balance them or make your paper appeal to all three in the same amount of content. With logos it is about how well you argue your point.

To what extent are Desdemona and Lady Macbeth to blame for their husbands tragic ends? Desdemona and Lady Macbeth In Shakespeare’s plays Othello and Macbeth it is evident that the titled characters have a very close bond with their mates that is crucial to the development of the plot. Both wives are a significant consideration in the choices that their husbands make and directly or indirectly, wilfully or unwittingly impact their spouses’ ultimate fates. After examining the characters and actions of these two ladies and the influence they had upon their husbands’ decisions it is clear that they were both instrumental in bringing about their husbands’ tragic ends. The audience’s first impression of Desdemona in Shakespeare’s Othello is that of a woman who refused to conform to the norms of the 17th century Venetian society concerning gender and social roles.
Othello told Desdemona many stories from his life, of battles, escapes, being enslaved, and other distressing tales of his youth. Desdemona first loved him out of pity and admiration for all the things he went through (Foster). Then he went on saying how Desdemona said that if Othello taught another man to tell his stories, that that would “woo” her. Thus the quote "She lov'd me for the dangers I had pass'd, and I lov'd her that she did pity the" meaning Desdemona thought Othello was quite the man all he went through, and he became her hero. Othello didn’t have it easy when it came to Desdemona; her father didn’t approve which in the end added to the struggle of their relationship.
