Feeling overlooked and dissatisfied to Othello promoting Cassio instead of him, Iago starts to plot his revenge. However, it is confusing that Iago continues his revenge and tries to destroy Othello so thoroughly even after he is promoted. Meanwhile, he has nothing to gain from the whole process. What motivates Iago to do such things? In my opinion, it is Iago’s hatred towards Othello that strongly motivate him, and this hatred comes from a variety of causes.
One’s position in the social hierarchy pounds your mental health and character. Lowest among the social hierarchy; therefore, the working class held an image of dirt. “So, leaving word with the shopman on what day I was wanted at Miss Havisham's again, I set off on the four-mile walk to our forge; pondering, as I went along, on all I had seen, and deeply revolving that I was a common labouring-boy; that my hands were coarse; that my boots were thick; that I had fallen into a despicable habit of calling
He also had to deal with his father’s death and with his mother’s marriage to the man who poisoned his father (Claudius, his uncle). A person’s state of mind cannot be clear, when everything and everyone seems to be against. Hamlet’s heart and soul were full of hate and sadness. All that he could think of was revenge. He regarded women as weak human beings, who could easily fall in temptation, as a result of his mother’s betrayal.
This is his coping with it, he runs away just like his father and mother did. Due to the fact that he never had a loving family, he ends up raping Pecola. All his life he has been oppressed and learned that you can’t blame the oppressors. The only thing you can do is pass the oppression along. He is the symbol of the perpetuation of oppression and how it cannot be solved.
De Andrè’s characters are usually prostitutes and rebels, failures and all those who find it impossible to live and survive in the cold and cynical society affected by the outcome of the second world war. We can therefore state that the so called excluded, i.e. people who are forced to live a miserable and disgraceful life, are particularly held dear by this Genoese “storyteller”. But De Andrè’s work has been influenced by French, English, Asian and American composers and poets. One of the most famous ‘thefts’ committed by the singer is from Edgar Lee Masters and his “Spoon River Anthology”.
They cannot let them rebel or strike or it will spell the end of all they know. Furthermore, the landowners and bank owners fear the Okies because of their massive population size; they have the power to overpower them. “Okies-the owners hated them because the owners knew they were soft and the Okies strong, that they were fed and the Okies hungry; and perhaps the owners had heard from their grandfathers how easy it is to steal land from a soft man if you are fierce and hungry and armed. The owners hated them.” (Steinbeck 279). The owners and banks know that the only way to keep them from rebelling is to stomp on them, separate them and ensure they are always hungry and without a home.
"’Cause I’m black…"(Steinbeck ch.4). This is the only time that we see crooks discussing how everyone on the ranch degrades him and discriminates him. Crooks is so oppressed by the society that he lives in, that he starts to opress himself and he seems to be depressed. Crooks never talks back to any of the ranch workers when they call him racial slurs to his face. Crooks either has a strong will to keep working here, or, he knows that he has no other choice than to go out alone and starve.
Frost having experienced major loss in his life, Shakespeare lying to himself to cope with his actions, and Bishop constantly masking her pain while in the eyes of the public. In “Desert Places”, “When my love swears she is made of truth”, and “One Art”, the author’s use connotative diction to weaken the severity of their personal issues. Robert Frost’s poem “Desert Places” diminishes an overall sense of emptiness to being nothing compared to what he holds within himself through the use of connotative diction. Throughout the poem, the description of a cold, dark night represents the intensity of the depression that Frost was feeling. In the final stanza, Frost reveals that “I have it in me so much nearer home, To scare myself with my own desert places”, “it” being the darkness previously mentioned in the poem.
He felt weak and he wanted support. “Weakness corrupts and absolute weakness corrupts, absolutely. Centuries of social ostracism have degraded the untouchable, his mind and heart have been damaged and he has grown incapable of self-assertion and absolutely passive and helpless”. He has come to accept his place in society as divinely ordained and the caste Hindus as his natural superiors. Untouchable is a novel of thirties when India was still a colony, when the evil of untouchability was rife through the country and when Mahatma Gandhi was carrying on his crusade for the eradication of this evil and when the burning, torturing and killing of untouchables was a daily event, when these oppressed or down-trodden people could not even complain or grumble.
