Emilia doesn’t know why Iago needed it so badly but Iago told her to give it to him. Iago is going to plant it in Cassio’s bedroom so that he could prove to Othello that Desdemona had cheated him. The audience know this when Iago mentioned “I will in Cassio’s lodging lose this napkin/ And let him find it. Trifles light as air/ Are to the jealous confirmations strong/ As
He wants to end all the pain and grief that his father's death brought upon him. But then again, he might just be saying all this because he knows that Polonius and Claudius are listening in. But in fact, nobody will ever know if Hamlet’s intentions to commit suicide were in any way, shape, or form true. Shakespeare carefully manipulates his language with abundant detail and imagery to illustrate the development of Hamlet's mind in this famous speech. After Hamlet makes this shocking announcement, Hamlet goes into a dreamlike world producing many images such as “The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, Or to take arms against a sea
He is looking for a way to obtain revenge more than he is to find out the truth. The only proof Othello thinks he has is the handkerchief he believes Desdemona gave to Cassio. He is ready to kill his wife by pure jealousy. As he says in Act III, Scene 3, he could have forgive anything to Desdemona but not an affair. And assumptions are enough for him to kill her.
Alonso King of Naples and father of Ferdinand. Alonso helped Antonio in usurping Prospero’s dukedon in the early years. Alonso may have made some errors in the past, but he isn’t an evil-natured man, because throughout the play he seems aware of his past actions and he regrets them in the end. 1.He is also very naive because he doesn’t notice what Antonio and Sebastian are planing, which is to kill him so that Sebastian cam be king (this is shown at the end of the scene. Pg 83 L199-201 “I see... your head.” 2.In this scene alonso is devasteted because he thinks his son died when the shipwreck happened during the return journey from his daughter’s wedding in Tunis(pg 75 L102-105 “You cram... is lost-”).
Trifles light as air Are to the jealous confirmations strong As proof of holy writ; this may do something. The Moor already with my poison: Dangerous conceits are in their natures poisons, Which at the first are scare found to distaste, But with a little act upon the blood Burn like the mines of sulphur...” In Act 4 scene 1 As Iago's plan, Cassio gets the handkerchief and gives it to his sweet Bianca. When Iago and Cassio were having a conversation about Bianca, Othello watches them furiosly. He cannot hear their conversation however, so Othello misunderstands Cassio's laughter. Actually, Iago and
He’ll always doubt her, for ever. So far, Iago has given us the idea that he acts only in the rush of revenge and so, that he doesn’t really think through his ideas. The audience doesn’t know if he really has a plan, structured plan but we realise that he thought everything through and that he has quite a sick mind… It seams like he thought exactly what to say and how to say it before his conversation with Othello. We also realise that he predicts what could and could not happen and all his thoughts are resumed to his plan and it’s not totally right to call him “evil” because he’s actually using the truth “And what’s he then that says I play the villain? When this advice is free and honest”.
Revenge in Hamlet Hamlet is a play written by William Shakespeare and is based on revenge and how the act of certain individuals can lead to tragedy and affect everyone. Hamlet’s father has just died, and as a ghost, visits Hamlet and secretly tells him the truth of what had happened. He tells Hamlet that he did not die of natural causes, but was poisoned by Claudius, Hamlet’s uncle and now stepfather. This encounter begins a challenge and obligation to seek revenge for his father. Hamlet is speaking to the mysterious ghost, whose message is if Hamlet ever loved his father he will “Revenge his foul and most unnatural murder” (1.5.25).
The reason about this is because before doing something Hamlet wants to makes sure that he is right and not judging his uncle and mother in the wrong way. After that he judges his mother and decides to kill Polonius in a desperate situation. This change occurs because he was not conscious about himself, taking into account that minutes ago he discovered the truth about his father’s murder. Finally he takes revenge and kills the king. This change occurred because at this point
You, who so well know the nature of my soul, will not suppose, however, that I gave utterance to a threat. At length I would be avenged” (Poe, Para 1). Revenge drives humans to great lengths, but eventually, most people will learn that, it is not worth it. The thoughts of revenge plagued Montresor to perform unthinkable acts of retaliation against his adversary, Fortunato. These thoughts haunted him until his final days, as indicated in the last two sentences: “Of the half of a century no mortal had disturbed them.
