He moans on about how he feel he cannot cope and that he should just commit suicide to get rid of the pain he is feeling. . In the first line of the soliloquy he uses repetition ‘too too’ to show that he is desperate to commit suicide, because he feels betrayed by his own mother and is grieving over the loss of his father, all of what is going on turns him to a frantic state of mind ‘God ,God’. The feeling of self-pity is still apparent but Hamlet starts to feel helpless and powerless, especially as he knows his uncle is now king, and therefore Claudius has much power over him. At the ending of the soliloquy he feels a sense of helplessness ‘for I must hold my tongue’ and again starts to pity himself.
Look here it is.”(III.iii.) Iago’s manipulative ways have earned him what he needs to succeed in the demise of his counterparts. By being loyal to her husband, Emilia has caused a great deal of harm to the woman she cares so deeply for. Another conversation of Desdemona is brought up between the Ancient and his general and this time Iago explains to Othello that he had seen Cassio with his ladies handkerchief. Othello later questions Desdemona about the handkerchief and she cannot answer where it is.
“O that I were a man for his sake! Or that I had any friend would be a man for my sake!” she passionately exclaims. “I cannot be a man with wishing, therefore I will die a woman with grieving” Benedick Benedick is the willful lord, recently returned from fighting in the wars, who vows that he will never marry. He engages with Beatrice in a competition to outwit, outsmart, and out-insult each other, but to his observant friends, he seems to feel some deeper emotion below the surface. Upon hearing Claudio and Don Pedro discussing Beatrice’s desire for him, Benedick vows to be “horribly in
A tragic hero will effectively gain our fear and pity if he is a good mixture of good and evil. Ophelia can be viewed as a tragic hero in this play. We first meet Ophelia in Act 1, Scene 3 where she is warned by her brother Laertes that Hamlet is playing with her and that she should not keep her "chaste treasure open" suggesting that his sister has no 'worth of her own except in her sex'. Ophelia hears her brother but sticks up for herself and defends her relationship with Hamlet. She even turns Laertes' lesson around to focus on him and how he is doing exactly what he is telling Ophelia not to do.
Soliloquy of Emilia Oh unhappy day, I can’t believe it’s my husband who told Othello that Desdemona is dishonest. Iago, he is a liar, a villain, a devil, Bring rumors to this world, and smear people’s hearts. How can I live with such a devil for so many years without realizing his true colors? Oh my poor Desdemona, She doesn’t even believe there are such women, who will cheat on their husbands, She is as pure as an angle, And she is killed by her husband who she loves more than anything in this world Because he suspects she is dishonest. She has an affair with Casio?
Romeo and Juliet are devastated that they love the enemy: “Prodigious birth of love it is to me, / That I must love a loathed enemy” (1.5.142-144). Romeo and Juliet are supposed to be enemies and are not allowed to see each other. Capulet threatens Juliet to rush her into marrying Paris: “And you be not, hang, beg, starve, die in the street, / For, by my soul, I’ll never acknowledge thee” (3.5.194-195). Capulet is harsh on Juliet to marry Paris but Juliet is already married so she feels like she needs to take drastic measures. The Prince tells the families his opinion when Romeo and Juliet are found dead: “Where be these enemies?
However, the first deception happens at the party when Don John, Don Pedro’s evil illegitimate half-brother, tells Claudio that Don Pedro is double crossing him. Claudio is quick to believe this and becomes angry until Don Pedro goes to him and gives him Hero as his betrothed. Beatrice and Benedick are constantly bickering with one another in a battle of wits stating that they hate each other. However, they are not very convincing of
How betrayal destroys relationships is evident in Hamlet’s relationship with Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. “Why, man, they did make love to this employment./They are/not near my conscience. Their defeat/Does by their own insinuation grow./'Tis/dangerous when the baser nature comes/Between the pass and fell incensèd/points/Of mighty opposites.” (5.2.61-66). Hamlet knew that his so called friends had chosen the King over him and now feels no
Around 1603, Shakespeare wrote a tragedy, which famously known as “Othello”. In the play “Othello”, Shakespeare introduces Othello who is said to be one of Shakespeare’s most fascinating creations. Although the audience is first introduced to Iago and Roderigo, Othello remains at a distance from much of the action that concerns and affects him. As Iago and Roderigo speaks of Othello, they do so with racial epithets, not by name. These include, “the thick-lips” (I.i.66), “an old black ram” (I.i.88), and “a Barbary horse” (I.i.113).
When Hamlet pours his heart out for his late father, the new King Claudius deems him to be unmanly. To be unmanly is to be womanly, and Claudius considers his new stepson/nephew to be such. “ ‘Tis sweet and commendable in your nature, Hamlet, To give these mourning duties to your father, […] But to persever in obstinate condolement is a course of impious stubbornness. ‘Tis unmanly grief (I.ii.87-94).” Later on, in act 2, Hamlet curses himself for being womanly. “Why, what an ass am I!
