It is easy for Iago to manipulate Othello because Othello trusts him so much. He allows his trust for Iago to overpower his love for Desdemona in the end. The antagonist of Othello is Iago. Deceptive and vengeful, he is the quintessence of evil. As Othello’s ancient, Iago has a strong pull over Othello which he utilizes in order to seek revenge on him.
He is highly respected within Maycomb, Judge Taylor says that he is “always courteous to everybody” and Miss Maudie proclaims “we trust him to do right.” Even though Atticus actions of protecting Tom Robinson brought him to be the object of scorn in Maycomb ironically he is a heroic figure in the novel. He is a widower left with two lovable children, Jem and Scout. Lee presents him as a conscientious father, he is honest, straightforward, and throughout the novel he listens to them and deals with any questions they may ask. He says to his brother Jack, “when a child asks you something answer him.” Atticus treats his children as adults; he believes they can “spot an evasion quicker than adults.” Atticus practices the ethic of sympathy and understanding that he preaches to Scout and Jem and never holds a grudge against the people of Maycomb despite their callous indifference to racial inequality. He is sensitive in his treatment of people and he understands other individual’s feelings.
“…I have done the state some service, and they know’t”. Iago is the most heinous villain in Shakespeare. Shakespeare is successful in giving Iago the prefect satanic characterises of a villain. It is Iago's jealousy of anyone who acquires anything that seems better than that which he acquires himself; this is the driving force of the play. As the momentum builds with the force, Iago's jealousy enables him to incite the same sense in others, to use them to his own advantage, in other words; their disadvantage.
Mark Antony is an honorable man in regards to Caesar. Brutus feels that even though Caesars may have or have not been a threat he still acknowledges him for his past reign: “As Caesar loved me, I weep for him; as he was fortunate, I rejoice at it; as he was valiant, I honour him” (Act3Sc2Ln25-26). Brutus knows within his heart that Caesar was Rome’s best emperor. Mark Antony is the one who carries the body of Caesar to the assembly. “Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears.
Antony had very good relationship with Caesar. At the same time Antony was very loyal to Caesar. Antony portrayed being loyal to Caesar many times throughout the play. “That I did love thee, Caesar, O, 'tis true: If then thy spirit look upon us now, shall it not grieve thee dearer han thy death, To see thy thy Anthony making his peace.” (Jul.3.1.l.1416-1419). In this quote Antony shows how he loves Caesar and that he hopes that Caesar’s spirit sees that he was loyal to him even when he was head.
Showing respect to the rank, is your duty, and respecting the man is irrelevant. The man wearing that rank, obviously deserves it and has worked hard for it. By respecting the rank they respect the things that that person had to do to attain that position. This respect creates a sense of teamwork that allows the army to
1. Why did Nick take care of Gatsby’s funeral? I think Nick is genuinely a very respectful, decent man; the type of person that would always do ‘the right thing’. Therefore, when there is no one else to organise the funeral, Nick feels a sense of responsibility and therefore takes it upon himself to organise it. I also think Nick and Gatsby shared a genuine friendship, Nick not only liked but also respected Gatsby – he felt that, like himself, Gatsby was an honest man who had tried his best to be a good person.
King Duncan sees Macbeth as a loyal soldier and is grateful for his actions, he trusts him immensely. “O valiant cousin! Worthy gentleman!” (1.11.26). In these lines King Duncan is expressing how happy he is with Macbeth. He sees him as a great soldier, which shows that Macbeth in the beginning of the play was indeed a
It could be that he has damaged himself so that he is unable to feel empathy for others - or that the evil is innate. Macbeth displays some very evil characteristics - selfishness, coldness, obsession and cold-blooded murder. Shakespeare explores the degree to which he alone is responsible, and how far others contribute to Macbeth is perhaps Shakespeare's greatest exploration of the problem of evil. Evil is positioned both within and without. The witches are objective figures but Macbeth's first utterance in act 1, scene 3 suggests that he shares a similar thought with the witches.
As such Macbeth is morally vulnerable to them. The ways in which Shakespeare’s language gives us the imagery that the witches are so evil is when it quotes the oxymoron: “Fair is foul, and foul is fair.” This quote is important because it introduces the idea of deception which will be picked up in the imagery further through the play. Macbeth from the beggining of Act 1, scene 2, is always associated with blood. At first this is a positive view of imagery as it quotes: “Bellona’s bridegroom.” We get the impression that Macbeth is a “Noble hero,” other quotes such as: “ For brave Macbeth, he deserves that name” or “ O, valiant cousin, worthy gentleman,” show us that Macbeth is presented as a man that is one in a million. Further through the play however the image of blood is used to soak “ Devilish Macbeth,” a quote such as: “Untitl’d tyrant, bloody-sceptr’d” show this.
