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.
“The Porter and the Three Ladies” The story of The Porter and the Three Ladies is all about when to speak and not to. Especially, if you’re a guest in someone else’s house, the results of opening your mouth or questioning the home owner could be devastating. Or even worse, life taking. Shahrazad begins the story by introducing us to a man, whom is a Porter, and his encounter with 3 most gorgeous sisters he has ever laid eyes upon. The sisters welcome him with a feast fit for a king, and endulge him with wine.
In today’s society, we sometimes face deceptive characters that cause major problems due to their deceptive traits. This idea is especially true in the Shakespearean tragedy, Othello. With the theme of deception that is shown throughout the course of W. Shakespeare’s play, Othello, the main antagonist character, Iago, has clearly demonstrated it through his malicious and demonic actions to fulfill his need for jealousy and greed. In this essay, this will be shown through a detailed analysis of three various actions specifically caused by Iago’s deception: Othello’s dismissal of Cassio, the slapping of Desdemona by Othello in front of Lodovico, and lastly, the tragic ending, the killing of Desdemona by Othello during her sleep. In the first few scenes of the play, the readers experience first-hand some of Iago’s capabilities, in particular, his deceptive traits.
The character of Jack in Lord of the Flies serves to highlight the uneven cruelty and power distributed through society. His character depicts a battle between good and evil, this theme is one that was influenced by Golding's own experiences in World War two. Jack represents the breakdown in society and how the “blood thirsty”, savagery in human nature can cause the fall of man and lead to autocratic tribalism. Jack’s craving for power is made evident right from the beginning of the novel. when the boys decide that they “ought to have a chief”, Jack jumps at the chance with “simple arrogance”, and states that its because he is “chapter chorister”, and can “sing C sharp”,so in other words, for no valid reason at all.
Ricketts, MarieClaire 30/09/2012 P.3 Great Gatsby Dialectical Journal Chap. 3 Date & Page Date & Page To me this quote showed the reader that people would use Gatsby. When Gatsby would throw party’s people would show up uninvited and I realized that even though Gatsby was “popular” he was only popular for the lavish parties he would throw, in my opinion. From reading this I can now predict that something is going to happen and Gatsby is going to realize everyone didn’t care about him at all. I felt while reading this quote from chapter 3 that it showed a progression in the relationship between Nick and Gatsby, and since Gatsby was so used to being used it was interesting to see some sort of bond between Gatsby and Nick.
Fitzgerald’s use of contradictions adds to the air of mystery by, again, forcing the reader to question the novel constantly; why? Why did the wealthy inhabitants of NYC maks their problems with expensive clothes and champagne? Why did love ultimately kill Gatsby? The reader is plunged into an endless pool of questions as to how and why things happened due to Fitzgerald’s use of gaps and constradictions. By missing out information and by contradicting wealth with betrayal and love with death
[Act I, Sc. iv, 90], it could be interpreted that he is speaking of a threat of war, but when looked at as symbolic, nothing could better sum up Claudius' corrupting effect on the kingdom which is brought on by his unpunished crime. His evil acts carry him to the throne and pollute the people around him causing chaos, sorrow and death. The image of rotting along
HOW DOES FITZGERALD TELL THE STORY IN CHAPTER THREE? Following on from the previous chapters where we were introduced to all the main characters, this chapter is structurally separated into two parts. The first focuses on a lavish party thrown by Gatsby and it is here we witness Nick becoming a participant. In the second part of the chapter, we gain a general context of Nick, our intrafictional narrator’s day to day life. As before, Nick remains our retrospective narrator, “reading over what I have written so far” and Fitzgerald continues to present Nick as an outsider, an observer, listening in.
Fitzgerald's social insight in The Great Gatsby focuses on a select group: priviliged young people between the ages of 20 and 30. In doing so, Fitzgerald provides a vision of the "youth and mystery that wealth imprisons and preserves" (157). Throughout the novel Nick finds himself surrounded by lavish mansions, fancy cars, and an endless supply of material possessions. A drawback to the seemingly limitless excess Nick sees in the Buchanans, for instance, is a throwaway mentality extending past material goods. Nick explains, "They were careless people, Tom and Daisy -- they smashed up things and creatures and then retreated back into their money or their vast carelessness or whatever it was that kept them together, and let other people clean up the mess they had made" (188).
It's emotionally exhausting, brutal, cynical, and a real downer. This movie has excellent acting with immersive dialogue filled with information of the characters played by Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Button, George Segal, and Sandy Dennis. Every actor and actress performs at the top of their game with intense emotion. The reactions of the characters in the movie seem real as if they are a true character in life. In this weird and awkward movie a young couple Nick (George Segal) and Honey (Sandy Davis) are invited to George (Richard Burton) and Martha (Elizabeth Taylor) house for a party while being totally intoxicated.
