Iago’s mendaciousness scorched Othello’s sanity beyond repair. Iago’s villainous behavior and Othello’s radical demeanor both stand for part of every man in contrasting ways. Each if those qualities is regrettably embedded within each of us. The qualities he thrives on throughout Othello, by William Shakespeare, are the ones we’re most ashamed of. In his soliloquy in Act 2 Scene 2 Line 380 he’s especially brutal towards Desdemona in his plans showing no shame what so ever.
Shakespeare uses incessant word play, and constant mockery between key characters to portray the comedic effect. An example of constant mockery could be the ‘merry war’ between Beatrice and Benedick which continues throughout the entire play. Early on in the play Claudio and Hero fall in love at first sight. This leads Don Pedro to act like Claudio offering to woo Hero evidently fooling her at the masked ball. This is dramatic irony because the audience know who the masked characters are but the actual characters don’t.
King Lear is the title character of the play, so it is obvious he is pretty important. And in the play, he definitely knows it. This is evidenced by his inflated sense of self; he has such an ego that he wants to hear his daughters profess their love for him, saying “Which of you shall we say doth love us most,” (Act I Scene I Line 51) and when one refuses, disowns her, as well as banishing his best friend for disagreeing with him. However, these rash actions suggest something more to me. I think that inside, Lear is insecure.
Holden has been in use of a word quite often, the word ‘’Phony’’ This word means that something is fake, not real. A phony is usually used when there is a false person. In Holden's case his whole surrounding was filled with those kind of so called phonies. Thus far no one seems to be trustworthy in Holden's opinion. Life would be a lot easier if phonies was themselves instead of acting like someone they are not.
In a story of nobleman, honor and valor, it is almost as if Iago is a breath of fresh air. Exceptionally unpredictable, his actions are thought provoking and often need to be analyzed by the audience. Many themes are displayed throughout the play, one of which is appearance vs reality. This theme can especially relate to Iago's character. His deceiving appearance, as 'honest Iago' works to manipulate Othello by painting a picture of nobility, integrity and virtue, and exploiting his good will.
They treat others with suspicion and as such, they do not generally get along well with others. Conscientiousness relates to the way people control, regulate and express their reactions. Conscientious individuals exhibit extreme self discipline, are organized and plan their actions carefully. Because of their organization and planning, such individuals achieve high levels of
A Lacking World Two wrongs can actually make a right. Egoistic by definition means limited to or caring only about yourself and your own needs. The definition of stubborn is having or showing dogged determination not to change one's attitude or position on something, especially in spite of good arguments or reasons. These two characteristics combined with Howard Roarks other notable qualities essentially combine to make one remarkable character. Furthermore with the addition of characters such a Stephen Mallory who lacks confidence in his originality, Dominique Francon with her refusal to allow herself to be content and Gail Wynand’s inability to be satisfied thrown into the mix, it is like the contrast between Advil and morphine.
In Shakespeare’s play, ‘King Lear’, we are shown an array of characters that are multi-dimensional and extremely complex. Shakespeare has the ability to reveal a human character with an exceptional use of language. The three characters that I believe have large roles and functions within the play are, understandably, King Lear himself, The Fool, and Kent. The Fool acts as Lear's conscience and trusted guide, yet he is also a critic of Lear, a truth teller. In effect this makes a true friend, however some believe it was the Fool's constant remarks that drove Lear to madness.
My weaknesses hinder my abilities and are flaws in my personality, which could complicate my relationships with others. One of my weaknesses is arrogance. I am very confident in my abilities that sometimes it might be considered egotism. Another of my weaknesses is that I am somewhat judgmental. I expect others to do their best job, and I can be quick to judge them when they don’t meet my expectations.
