Othello is presented as a respectful and honorable prince loved by all, but unexpectedly he grows an enemy, Iago.

In the short story, “The Scarlet Ibis” by James Hurst, the narrator is static and stays selfish throughout the entire story. In the beginning of the story, the narrator finds out his brother isn’t “normal” so he threatens and brainstorms ways to kill him; “It was bad enough having an invalid brother… so I began to make plans to kill him.” The narrator was so self centered and couldn’t handle not getting the “normal” brother he wanted, he was going to end his life. In the middle of the story, the narrator says, “ I was so embarrassed at having a brother who couldn’t walk so I set out to teach him.” He only wanted to teach him to walk for himself, he didn’t even care how hard it would be for his brother or if he wanted to walk.
