McEwan mainly focuses on how the negative emotions can affect moral judgement. In the case of Briony jealousy causes her to want to hurt Robbie.

For example, throughout the entire play, Othello committed irrational actions voluntarily because he was overtaken by jealousy that Iago developed with lies.
Daisy!” Shouted Mrs Wilson… making a short deft movement, Tom Buchanan broke her nose with his open hand.’ It is possible to infer from this that Tom is concerned about the possible outcome of putting his marriage with Daisy at risk as he gets increasingly aggravated and aggressive when Myrtle speaks of her.
