Claudius became so slothful and envious that he murdered King Hamlet, his own brother(Act 1, scene 5, line 40). Without Sloth, none of the other sins would be brought about in this play. If Claudius had a work ethic he might have been able to have the same powers and glory that his brother possessed. The sin caused by sloth also lead to make Claudius even worse. He married his sister in law and had to sin much more in order to cover his tracks(Act 1, Scene 5, line 44).

Both texts have the same plot line where Iago or Ben Jago is set out to destroy Othello in vengeance for not getting the title/position that he thought that he deserved. He makes up the same lie where Desdemona is accused of cheating on Othello with Cassio/Michael Cass. In the play, Iago is very persistent when it comes to making Othello suffer by manipulating him and others throughout the whole novel without any empathy. Whereas in the novel Ben Jago does manipulate others but halfway through the film he does realize that maybe things have advanced past what he ever expected them to be. In the play itself, Iago does not know when to stop manipulating people and he also does not realize when things get pushed past it limits.
Shakespeare 's uses the hands imagery to reveal the rise and fall of macbeth’s power and how this same power mixed with guilt and not being able to trust others or himself lead him to do unethical things. Macbeth uses the power he has to tell these murders that they are “borne in hand”(3.1.80) by banquo. This is one of the bad decisions he has made using his power out of guilt. He thinks that banquo will throw him under the bun for murdering the king and he wants to make sure that doesn 't happen. Macbeth also says, "Whose heavy hand hath bow 'd you to the grave / And beggar 'd yours forever?"
Fortunato whom he hates is a fool for wine. Amontillado is a kind of sherry. Montresor lured Fortunato to the vaults and made revenge with an exceptionally hideous way. In this story, Poe describes the mental state of Montresor and his character almost like a devil because of his cruelty during revenge. Montresor accomplishes the revenge because he has a strong violent vengefulness to Fortunato, is a very careful and intelligent person, and feels pleasure to kill people.

King Creon is furious upon hearing the news and accuses the sentry of being bribed and demands him to bring who ever broke his decree to him. Creon is a scary king because the sentries throw dice to decide who will tell King Creon this terribly bad news, no one wants to tell the him.

Hamlet was left to feel like he was Betrayed when he found out that his Uncle murdered his father, In the quote “Ay, that incestuous, that adulterate beast, With witchcraft of his wit, with traitorous gifts- So to seduce!- won to his shameful lust The will of my most seeming- virtuous queen.” the techniques used in this quote was “Won to his shameful lust The will of my most seeming- virtuous queen.” This metaphor shows that Claudius desired to be King and so he manipulated Queen Gertrude to marry him. This is one of the motivations that Claudius had for killing King Hamlet. Hamlet was also betrayed by not just his Uncle Claudius but his friends Guildenstern and Rosencrantz. They were spying on him and ordered to kill Hamlet by Claudius until Hamlet found out what they were trying to do, and was smart enough to know what was going on. Hamlet acted fast and ended up getting revenge on his friends which sentenced them to death.
201). Now, Creon is saying that anyone can be bribed into doing anything. He gave the example of “homes gone,” he also said that even the honest hearts can become corrupted, then he says, “crookedness of all kinds and all for money.” In the end his power as king and his hubris makes him cynical and makes him see all people in a negative way and assumes that they could be easily bribed into getting everything he wants at any
Revenge strips men of their morality by causing them to see another person as an object for their torment. In Nathaniel Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter, Roger Chillingworth’s vengeance consumes him and it becomes his life’s goal to torture his adversary. Chillingworth is the worst sinner because he seeks to end Dimmesdale, lies to maintain his sinful scheme, and never admits his wrongdoing. Chillingworth shows no restraint in persecuting Dimmesdale to achieve his ends. When he arrives in the town he finds that a man has committed adultery with his wife, which “[leads] him to imagine a more intimate revenge than any mortal had ever wreaked upon an enemy.” From that moment, Chillingworth swears to exact his retribution.
