Loneliness puts The Monster in a mentally unstable position. He believes that he is a monster for the reason being he was created by one. In comparison, Othello’s betrayal is demonstrated throughout the play, but especially through Iago when he confesses to the audience his plan to manipulate and destroy Othello’s love life with Desdemona. Although Othello trusts Iago with anything, Iago hates the “Moor” and is willing to do anything to destroy him. Iago feels that the best way to do so is by manipulating Othello telling him that his wife is cheating on him with Cassio, who Iago coincidently hates as well.
Iago is furious at Othello for appointing Cassio to the position of personal lieutenant instead of Iago himself. He devises a plan to make Othello believe that his wife Desdemona is having an affair with Cassio. Iago wants to completely destroy all that Othello holds dear. In some ways Iago’s plan works, but not in the way he expects. He manages to make Othello believe in Desdemona’s infidelity which ultimately causes Othello to kill her.
A jealous motive that has turned into a strong desire to destroy Othello’s life is shown from the quote; “I hate the Moor; And it is thought abroad that 'twixt my sheets 'Has done my office. I know not if't be true; Yet I, for mere suspicion in that kind, Will do as if for surety.” (1.3) This is because Iago had thought that Othello was committing adultery with his wife Emilia. I used this quote in the visual representation to show the steps of how jealousy progressed. Iago had induced his will to destroy Othello by his cunning motives. The quote was an explicit example of how jealousy drove Iago to commit his actions.
Arguably, haste’s negative consequences only begin after Romeo and Juliet have been married. Mercutio’s death, caused by his overbearing chauvinistic personality and his need to defend Romeos diminishing family honor ultimately cost him his life. Romeo feels as if he needs to avenge Mercutio’s death, reacting with, “fire-eyed fury be my conduct now… Either thou or I, or both, must go with him.” Expressing his injudicious and imprudent plan to kill Tybalt. Romeo goes ahead with his vengeful killing, failing to realize the
Because of Iago’s web of lies, Othello was transformed into a monster, who no longer spoke to Desdemona gently, but rather struck her in public. The emotional change of Othello was extremely evident as he was so utterly in love with Desdemona in the beginning, yet by the end he could actually bring himself to kill her. Othello seemed to be tragically flawed in the sense that he was too proud to stand the fact that his wife had been unfaithful. Being a general he was always in control, and Iago made it seem that he did not have complete dominance over all aspects of his life. Every lie brought him deeper into his madness, and he appeared to be so
Bernard’s actions hurt him a lot and he feels emotionally hurt. His excellence brings him a torture which others think is a treatment to kill his excellence. Also, Ender’s excellence is disliked by others when colonel Graff uses his sister to add torture toward Ender. Ender’s one weakness, his sister Valentine’s love is abolished by colonel Graff so that Ender will have no
A great amount of this sexual imagery comes as a result of Claudius’s and Gertrude’s union. Pretty much the remainder of Hamlet’s tension comes as a direct result of Ophelia. The idea of this incest between Hamlets mom and Hamlets uncle and the unstable relationship between Hamlet and Ophelia drives Hamlet insane, almost even to suicide. “To be, or not to be: that is the question: Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune Or to take arms against a sea of troubles, And by opposing end them?—To die,—to sleep,— No more; and by a sleep to say we end The heartache, and the thousand natural shocks That flesh is heir to…” (Act 3, Scene 1, Lines 58-90) The sexual Imagery between the characters Hamlet and Ophelia are omnipresent throughout the play. Throughout the play many references to sex are made when Hamlet speaks to or refers to Ophelia.
For example, Tom tells Mr. Wilson about the incident that happens with Myrtle, and that Gatsby was responsible for it. This caused Mr. Wilson to fill with anger, and lead him to kill Jay Gatsby, and commit suicide. From these two situations, we see two contrasting consequences from one similar emotion. Jay Gatsby’s jealousy motivates him to pursue his true love, while Tom’s jealousy leads to the death of multiple characters. In conclusion, it is extremely transparent that Tom is a more corrupt character compared to Jay Gatsby.
The friendship of Angier and Borden is quickly replaced by bitter rivalry, spurted from an accidental on-stage death of Angier’s wife. Critic, Paula Nechak labels this rivalry, “dark obsession” in her review of The Prestige: This dark obsession will force the secretive, talented Alfred Borden (Christian Bale) and his nemesis, the less talented but consummate showman Robert Angier (Hugh Jackman), to forsake all and face grave loss and death by upping the stakes on each other in a craftily designed plan to expose the machinations of the greatest illusion of all time. Influenced by the director’s love for contentious stuff, the movie is
Soon, however, Othello steadily falls as Iago, Othello’s mentor, brings him down through his manipulative ways, making him believe that his wife, Desdemona, is cheating on him. Othello no longer trusts Desdemona and kills her, only to find out all that Iago has told him is a lie. Othello is stripped of his title as a general and has killed the innocent love of his life, bringing him to great depths, a pattern following that of a tragic
