Othello was not a guillable man but he was a believer in anyone. But Desdemona had the bad end of it all because she got blamed for being disloyal to her husband. Iago was a selfish man but more importantly he was a cold hearted man that wanted everyone to feel the same way as he did. Iago had a jealous heart as well and couldn't stand the fact that love was in the air. In Othello, both themes of jealousy and hate were amoungst the main characters and developed new accuasations throughout the play.
The neglect from her husband causes Daisy to wilt, much like the flower if it were treated harshly. By the end of the novel, Tom’s careless behavior drives her to kill Myrtle, Tom’s mistress. Gatsby, who was in the car with her even “tried to make her stop, but she couldn’t” (145). Obviously Daisy, being a competent driver, could have kept herself from swerving into Myrtle and killing her. Fitzgerald is showing his
Osiris was exposed to metaphorical blindness because in the story Osiris’ brother, Set, is very jealous of his position and very well attempts to take it away from him. In the story Set puts together a small group of people who feel the same way about Osiris. They decide to hold a great feast of honour when he had come back from one of his trips. First of all, Osiris was exposed to metaphorical blindness because in the story Isis stated “Do not go my beloved. Set, your brother, is an evil man, who hates you and will do you harm (Osiris and Isis, 205)”.
If we remember that he is speaking to a relative stranger, this is quite inappropriate conversation. He basically accuses his late wife of being unfaithful but Browning has encouraged us to dislike the Duke so much already that it is easy to think he was at fault or is paranoid about what could have been her
This truthfulness however lands her in a bad place as she is disowned by her father for not professing her love. Gonerill and Regan are the complete opposite here as they show dishonesty in lying about how much each of them loves their father. As soon as their father has given them their share of inheritance they become ungrateful and no longer care for their father. ‘And in good time you gave it.’ Here Regan tells Lear that he took his time
One commentary said about “An Ideal Husband” that “when the truth of their large or small sins came to the surface, their careers and reputations were compromised or ruined". Sir Robert’s past actions which made him so powerful catch up with him. This is also applicable to Helmer in “A Doll’s House” who, although he does not obtain the money from Krogstad, he does ignore his wife’s warnings about firing Krogstad. Ironically, both Wilde and Ibsen show that it was both men who caused the letters, and therefore their downfall, to
So the true causes of evil are her father trapping her and keeping her away from people and men so long that she literally ends up crazy. Her father was apparently a cruel old man who never wanted his daughter to find true love and move away from him. “None of the young men were quite good enough for Miss Emily and such.” (48) “So when she got to be thirty and was still single, we were not pleased exactly, but vindicated; even with insanity in the family she wouldn't have turned down all of her chances if they had really materialized.” (49, 50) These two quotes show that her father was a real evil man who never saw any man well enough for his daughter and by the time she was thirty she was still single and really did not have a clue what she had been through and that she
They say, “Love can be dangerous in the wrong hands.” In the poem, “My Last Duchess”, that statement is a fact. All that the woman ever did was smiled at the things that made her happy, but her husband felt as if she gave him the same attention as she would a stranger. He wanted to feel special and since she could not give him that extra attention that was needed, he decided to have her killed. He also took upon himself to tell the father of his new wife, what had happened to his last wife. He basically was informing the father that if his daughter does the same as his last wife then she would be killed as well.
Mr Birling is a very selfish man who ‘has to make his way’ and doesn’t think of anyone but himself and his family; he thinks the community is stupid. He likes to make predictions on future- the unsinkability of the titanic, the impossibility of the war and the promises of technology. Sheila is presented as a very pretty and a quite honest character. She is engaged to Gerald Croft and they have just had their engagement party. When the inspector tells Sheila about Eva Smith she showed a lot of emotion and felt that she had to tell the inspector everything that happened.
