When you look at the plot, each event is a response to Iago 's provocation. But a lack of self-control underlies the actions of Othello and Cassio. And the irony comes from how they both have high standings as authority figures. So it would be reasonable to assume that no one could penetrate their pride or morality. Nonetheless, Iago does so by getting Cassio into a fight and making Othello jealous.
Tom’s altercation with Myrtle accentuates his hypocrisy and lack of self-control; while he doesn’t feel guilty for cheating on Daisy with Myrtle, he feels that he has the right to maintain his authority over Myrtle.

Robert Stevenson uses his protagonist’s, Dr. Jekyll, person versus self conflict to illustrate this point. Throughout the text, the reader learns that Dr. Jekyll was born into good fortune and was well-respected in society. However, the reader learns that it was not enough for him. He craves irregularities and he seeks a way to experience both sides of his identity without harming his reputation, which leads him to immoral experiments that bring out Hyde. To be specific, Jekyll states the following, “Many a man would have even blazoned such irregularities as I was guilty of; but from the high views that I had set before me, I regarded and hid them with an almost morbid sense of shame” (Stevenson 55).

On page 77 it says, ‘I can’t imagine looking in the mirror every day and seeing my self like that.’ Latter on in the novel Jack changes from saying these awful things behind Augusts back.
“What did he there? Could he be… the murderer of my brother? No sooner did that idea cross my imagination, than I became convinced of its truth,” (50). The truth is the creature did kill Frankenstein’s brother, but it is the speed and immediate confidence in authority of his accusation that is problematic. Victor has now revealed his inclination to imagine a crime committed by someone and quickly believe it as true; in this case, his accusations will always go towards the creature, because of his relentless hate for the being, and he will always believe the creature to be a criminal.
The eventually grew so tired of it and began helping King Henry, who regarded his presence as superior, take possession of Richard II’s crown. King Henry states “Had I so lavish been, so common hackneyed in the eyes of the men, so stale and cheap to vulgar company, Opinion that did help me to the crown, had still kept loyal in possession” (3.2 39 – 44). The key word in this quote is “lavish.” Lavish can be defined as abundant or extravagant (OED, def n). The king is essentially making a play on words, he is claiming that he was rarely seen by the commoners and that his presence was, and is valuable.
“ This shows that Samuel is aggressive because he wants to see other people hurt. Later in the book it shows that Samuel is aggressive when Samuel and Richard were fighting and the author states“ His cheeks are swollen and one of his eyes is turning purple. I am proud of my handiwork” Sameral is aggressive because he doesn 't like when people annoy himself or tease him. All he does to solve it is to use his fists.

The dominant class or the class with the power, better known as Andrew’s former employers use their social power to fire him unjustly because of his sexual orientation and recently discovered ailment. Conflict theories such as stereotypes, discrimination, inequality and sexuality all have starring roles in this film. Joe Miller stereotypes an entire group of people when he is “hit on” in a drug store, by asking the other male, “if he looked gay”, as if gay men, all look a certain way. Discrimination, inequality and sexuality are the main conflict theories expressed in this film. It is the entire reason why the film exists and why Andrew Beckett sued his former employer; simultaneously succeeding in life as well as in death.
He uses concepts of mercy and leniency in a way opposing that of the Furies. He not only believes Orestes is innocent but also restates his disdain at the methods of the Furies multiple times, saying, “They disgust me. These grey, ancient children never touched by god, man or beast - the eternal virgins. Born for destruction only, the dark pit, they range the bowels of Earth, the world of death, loathed by men and the gods who hold Olympus (BLANK)”. He supposedly has extensive insight on, “The rules of justice (BLANK).”
That said, once the illusion crumbles, it also destroys him. Likewise, John Steinbeck explores the double-edged sword of deception in his novel East of Eden. Just as in society, many characters throughout the story appear innocent and sinless. Despite this initial virtuosity, Steinbeck’s East of Eden evinces humanity’s contrasting and inherent dependence upon selfish uses of deception without considering the
Another kind of violence is verbal abuse. George uses Claire in verbally abusing his brother, repeatedly asking Aaron, her father, if he thinks Claire is sexually active. The tension between the two is characteristic of the stories in this collection. “Because what Meloy is singularly skilled in is articulating the simultaneous acknowledgment of a desire contrary to plausibility and the desire – deep, unrelenting, maddening, painful – for the fulfillment of that desire” (Habinek, 2009, NP). This leads to a very direct threat of violence, if only in Aaron’s mind.
In the excerpt from “the Unauthorized Autobiography of me”, Sherman Alexie conveys to the reader his nostalgia for when he was a child. He also attempts to emphasize that since that time, his life has become more lonely, and that he doesn't have “protection against the cold”. Alexie accomplishes this goal by discussing a happy moment presumably from his childhood, and he then uses an extended metaphor to explain how he now no longer has these types of connections with the people around him. The first line of the excerpt, “ my cousins are good warriors” is a reference to the fact that when he was growing up on the reservation, western movies taught him that Native Americans were fierce warriors. Although this sentence does not tie in with much of the rest of this excerpt, it is important to other parts of the work discussing conceptions of Native Americans.
