What better to say then jealousy is both love and hate at the same time. But others could agree that love over powers all, in this case of the play Othello, hate conqueres all and turns jealousy into madness. Othello lets the jealousy take over his life and his wisdom of his true love for Desdemona. His brain and heart became decepting and he believed that his wife had been unfaithful. Othello was not a guillable man but he was a believer in anyone.
This play is a tragedy so there will be deaths but these deaths are caused by the faults of others. Many different messages are hidden throughout the play but I think the overall messages is to not seek revenge or it will all come after you. Hamlet wanted to seek revenge for his father’s death and that caused Polonius’ death which Hamlet was mistaking him for Claudius who was his main target. Polonius’ death caused Ophelia to go mad and crazy and that led to her own death. Laertes and Claudius had a plan of revenge to go after Hamlet for causing Laertes’ father death.
Like all tragic heroes Macbeth demonstrates he is doomed to make errors in judgment when he allows Lady Macbeth to convince him to commit murder in order to gain the crown. In addition we know that at the beginning Macbeth is good. He was rewarded the respected title Thane of Cawdor after the execution of the previous Thane. It is easy to identify with Macbeth as he is pushed by Lady Macbeth to commit the murders and faces the external and internal conflicts typical of a tragic hero. Another aspect of the tragic hero is that they are responsible for their own fate.
Macbeth is Responsible In Williams Shakespeare’s play Macbeth, there are many acts in which Macbeth proves that he is responsible for his own death. Macbeth is a tragedy involving the murder of multiple characters. Macduff physically murdered Macbeth; though Macbeth is responsible through his own actions. Macbeth believes the witches prophecies, and caves when Lady Macbeth pressures him to murder King Duncan. His own human nature, paranoia and selfishness are what leads him to his death.
In the play Othello by William Shakespeare, we see a shift of character in the main protagonist. A once respected chief noted for his nobility is deceived into the monstrous and jealous human being who ends up killing the woman he loved. Othello starts the play as a heroic character, denouncing all criticisms of his race to become a military leader. As the story progresses Othello’s love life takes a vital turn when his colleague, Iago deceives him. This noble person shows that a seemingly minor flaw of protectiveness and loving nature can ultimately lead to his downfall.
From the start of the play, Iago expresses his jealousy of both Cassio and Othello. He is jealous of Cassio for securing the job of lieutenant Iago feels he deserved, and jealous of Othello not only from the promotion of Cassio, but also from his belief that Othello has slept with Emilia. This insecurity and jealousy he feels leads him to commit acts of revenge. As he becomes fixed on the idea of revenge, Iago speaks in a soliloquy he will not be satisfied "Till I am even with him, wife for wife, or failing so, yet that I put the Moor At least into a jealousy so strong that judgment cannot cure". Roderigo’s jealousy also starts from the very beginning of the play.
Theme of Revenge The troubles young Prince Hamlet faces in Hamlet, by William Shakespeare all help his complex mind to seek out the true objective, revenge. Seeking revenge for his father’s murder, the incestuous activity that his uncle and mother commit, and his passionate mystifying feelings for Ophelia all make for an interesting plot of events. Hamlets outlook on life dwindles deeply after he learns the true cause of his father’s death. His pessimistic views and suicidal feelings are seen in as early as the first scene when he says, “Or that the Everlasting had not fixed His cannon ‘gainst self-slaughter … how weary, stale, flat, and unprofitable seem to me all the uses of this world” (Shakespeare Act I scene II). This sadness Hamlet feels, makes him question his own life in his famous “to be or not to be” soliloquy.
It fair to say, in addition, that if his betrayal caused this extensive pain that clouded him after he murders Duncan, Banquo and the Macduff’s that it wasn’t a case of fate and was his own doing. However is he to blame? Or does the bulk fall on Lady Macbeth and the three witches. From his very first meeting with the witches, Macbeth's mind became instantly plagued with thoughts of murder and treachery a trait that was instantly noticed by Banquo "Good sir, why do you start, and seem to fear; Things that do sound so fair?" showing us that the thought of murder was already at the back of his mind.
The play’s main protagonist Hamlet lets his grief over his father’s murder fuel his thirst for revenge, Ophelia lets the grief over the murder of her father Polonius drive her to apparent suicide, and Ophelia’s brother Laertes is pushed to conspire with Claudius to kill Hamlet as a result of his grief. Grief might as well be its own character in Hamlet because if it was it would always be center stage. The grief present in Hamlet comes in many different shapes and forms. Even for life today, until people learn how to deal with grief it will become an inherent part of a person’s character. It is interesting to note how Shakespeare portrays his male and female characters ability to handle grief.
Justice is a significant theme in Hamlet. Crimes and injustice have been committed and so justice is then sought by several of the characters in the play. There are two kinds of justice in Hamlet, right and justifiable justice and unfair, negative justice which turns into revenge. King Hamlet is dead which everyone believes has been an accident. One night a ghost appears and relays to Prince Hamlet that King Claudius, the Prince’s uncle killed the King.
