That why he is a betrayer in my opinion, he lies to people and he always wants to be a two-faced person. One this Brutus did and seemed fake and not caring for others was being best friends with J.C and after wards talking horrible about him and how he thought J.C was too ambitious. Brutus will always talk about anyone behind their backs no matter who they were and I find that very inconsiderate and cruel. Even though Brutus knew that Ceasar was going to die he was planning on to helping to kill him. Meanwhile, When Brutus kills himself he shouts out words of peace to Caesars spirit “Caesar, you can rest now.
"Why, it is a lie" Proctor will have felt a lot of pressure on his shoulders in the short amount of time he had to decide his own fate as he had two different sides chirping in his ear. In the end, Proctor decides to keep to his own laws and morals and tears up the paper in which stated that he had done work with the devil. And so Proctor was hanged with his dignity
But it is a whore’s vengeance…’’ccite but did not want everyone to see it on paper. Another reason why justice was not served correctly is because even when John Proctor is condemned in the end, Giles Corey is too accused and later put to death for holding information from the court that they could have used. While he is being pressed to death by large, heavy stones, the only words he says are, “More weight,”CITE meaning he just want to get it over with because he knows he cannot escape

Even though Macbeth chose to murder Duncan, he first shows guilt and regret for it when telling his wife of the voices he heard after killing Duncan. He believes that the voices are correct and that he will never be able to sleep again so his emotions start to take over his thinking. Macbeth had killed the King so he was already headed down the slippery slope of sin, so after Macbeth killed Duncan, he killed the two King’s Chamberlains to have murderers that could not be questioned as his alibi. He was already too caught up in his future potential that he did not care anymore what he did or who he killed. It was Macbeth’s frame of mind to murder whoever so that he may be king that started his
He is the antagonist, it is he who sent Antigone to her death and brought trouble to the kingdom. Creon finally admits, “Woe is me! To none else can they lay it, This guilt, but to me! I, I was the slayer, I say it, Unhappy, of thee! 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.
‘why do I yield to that suggestion whose horrid image doth unfix my hair and make my seated heart knock at my ribs against the use of nature.’ This quote tells us that Macbeth has thought up the idea of killing the king and that his ambition is growing so much it is beginning to take over his morals, and is clouding his judgment. Again Shakespeare uses the natural imagery because killing the king is the most unnatural thing you can do as he is omnipotent and it is like killing God, this shows that although Macbeth knows he is thinking of the most unnatural deed on earth he is still contemplating it as his ambition is so strong. This has a worrying effect on the audience as, if Macbeth is so easily manipulated by one thought or idea what is he capable of with other influences. This quote could also illustrate that Macbeth is weak and absent minded as he does not think about what he is doing or about what he is considering
He has lost the ability to sense right and wrong. He has become twisted and evil. Macbeth has got what he has worked for and promised. He becomes king by killing and is unwanted by the people. With all of his murders, it lead someone to become suspicious of him.
Hamlet in his first soliloquy demonstrates his disgust that his mother has allied herself in love and in politics with her late husband’s brother, so soon after his death, “frailty, thy name is woman... to post with such dexterity to incestuous sheets”. Claudius is clearly established as the villain in Hamlet, murdering his own brother and then plotting to kill Hamlet. He lies and is deceitful toying with the notion that the appearance of things is not their reality. The audience is privy to the ‘reality’ of Claudius ‘deed’, and of his guilt, through an aside, climactically stating, “then is my deed to my most painted word. O heavy burden!”.
counterfeiting, or concealing one's true feelings, is part of this motif. everyone seems to lie; good characters as well as evil ones engage in deceit as they attempt to conceal their feelings: beatrice and benedick mask their feelings for one another with bitter insults; don john spies on claudio and hero; don pedro and his 'crew' deceive benedick and beatrice. who hides and what is hidden? how does deceit function in the world of the play, and how does it help the play comment on life in general? a central motif in the play is trickery or deceit, whether for good or evil purposes.
