Chillingworth’s physical and mental state changes as the story progresses from his choice to seek revenge, to the methods he uses to achieve his goals, to the end result of Chillingworth’s plans. Chillingworth yearns to achieve vengeance against Dimmsedale because this man had an affair with his young, beautiful wife Hester Prynne. When Chillingworth arrives in Boston, he is outraged to find his wife “Hester Prynne, standing up, a statue of ignominy, before the people” because she had a child out of wedlock (Hawthorne 69). Chillingworth, formerly a scholar of great intelligence in Europe, is angry at himself for letting this occur. He realizes how foolish it was to let a beautiful young woman come to America and simply hope she remains faithful.
Furthermore, both poems betray women as bad people. For instance in Porphyria’s Lover his lover acts quite slutty around him; “and made her smooth white shoulder bare,” – this shows that she may have only been in the relationship for an arteria motive. In The Laboratory the woman wants to kill for her revenge and also kill innocent people for fun. He may portray women in this way as women were seen as a “lower-class” to men at the time that the poem was written. When writing The Laboratory Browning will have looked at what people wanted to read.
THE CRUCIBLE Character analysis Abigail Williams – Abigail Williams is an orphan, unmarried but has an affair with married man John Proctor.

The Use of Women as a Tool to Untie Hamlet In the play, Hamlet, William Shakespeare crafts a tragedy centralized around the main character, Prince Hamlet and his negative perception of the women in his life. One main point of Shakespeare’s piece is to highlight how a female’s weakness ultimately shapes the decisions of their male counterparts. He does so by skillfully using the nature of a woman as a compelling force that leads to Hamlet’s destruction. Prince Hamlet struggles with accepting the harsh reality that his mother has remarried to her late husband’s brother. This conflict within Hamlet is further expounded by the possibility that his father was murdered by his uncle, King Cladius.
In Othello, both themes of jealousy and hate were amoungst the main characters and developed new accuasations throughout the play. A change in the way one would feel turns Othello jealous and angry at his own wife. Othello believed that Desdemona was being unfaithful to Othello with Cassio. Othello then turns his back on his own wife and does a rash decision to kill her for what she has done. When Othello is certain that she has commited adultry, he kills her softly.
like Eva‘s motherly love shows how a mother will do anything to protect and care for her children. For example she gave one of her legs to see to it that her children had food to eat, and a place to live. She also threw herself out of a window hopelessly and desperate to save her daughter who burn to death. Eva killing her son Plum was an example of how strong her love was for him. Of all her children Eva loved Plum best.
Shakespeare exposes Othello’s hamartia which is his self-control of jealousy. Othello’s character is completely transformed as jealousy changes him into a monster whom tragically kills his faithful wife. His assertion of himself “not being so easily jealous” when Iago begins to manipulate Othello’s state of mind is negligible as the responder views his transformation of character due to jealousy. Through Iago’s cunning manipulation, Othello is convinced of Desdemona’s infidelity as he exclaims “blood…Iago..blood” which shows his utmost intention of killing her. Hence it is evident to see how jealousy has consumed Othello and how it is described as the “green eyed monster”.

Not only did her husband cheat on her though, he cheated on her with someone that they had been taking care of.

Elizabeth breaks the news to John that Abigail, the woman (or more teenager) that John had sex with, is telling people all over town that certain members of society are witches.

This sadness Hamlet feels, makes him question his own life in his famous “to be or not to be” soliloquy. The murder of Claudius is his ultimate revenge, but before doing so Hamlet must deal with the incestuous activity that occurred between his mother and his uncle. Hamlets plot for revenge on Claudius is furthered as he realizes that after the death of his father, King Hamlet, Claudius and his mother quickly got married. Hamlet is so frustrated with his mother and her actions, that he yells, “frailty thy name is woman!” (Shakespeare Act I scene II). His hate for women is furthered as seen in his treatment toward Ophelia later on during the play.
