Each character present in a book serves an important purpose whether the reader likes them or not. Toni Morrison, author of the Desdemona wanted to remove Iago’s presence in her play because “He’s there [in the play Othello], eating up everything.” However, He cannot completely disappear since he played a major role,probably the most important one, in Othello that led to everyone else’s deaths. Although his name is barely mentioned in Desdemona, he is still alluded to because of his influence over Othello much like Barbary’s invisible presence that influences Desdemona in Othello. Because Othello and Desdemona are easily guided, Iago and Barbary’s invisible presence drives the stories.
He thinks that if he dies like this, all is not lost and that, despite his reputation, he may still be admired for certain qualities. He also refuses to be affected by the death of this wife either. He says, “She would have died hereafter”. He pushes it to the back of his mind and focuses on the battle rather than Lady Macbeth’s demise. In Scene 8, before Macbeth is slain, the last thing he says is “Lay on Macduff, / And damn’d be him that first cries, ‘Hold, enough!”.
The reason Macbeth decides to carry out the plan is because everything that Lady Macbeth talked about to him makes sense to him and he fully agrees with Lady Macbeth’s argument and the points that she states as well. Because he fully agrees with her, he begins to believe that not proceeding with the plan is the coward’s way out and in order to prevent him from being known as a coward and
In the context of this text, Brabantio reluctantly gave Othello and Desdemona’s marriage his blessing despite Iago and Roderigo attempts. Due to this, Roderigo says he’s going to drown himself. The structure of Iago’s response is very interesting. First, disregards Roderigo’s plan to drown himself. Iago begins his monologue with a very harsh tone.
1 Secondary Character Analysis in Romeo and Juliet In the late sixteenth century, William Shakespeare published Romeo and Juliet, one of his most famous plays. The theme of this play is that no obstacle can get in the way of true love. One of the many secondary characters in Romeo and Juliet is Tybalt, Juliet 's cousin. Although he is a minor character, he is the central antagonist in the play.
Lady Macbeth then gradually begins to bear the guilt "where our desire is got without content 'tis safer to be that which we destroy than by destruction dwell in doubtful joy". She says in a soliloquy, which Shakespeare uses to portray her deepest thoughts as she is afraid of killing more. Lady Macbeth feels that nothing was gained by killing Duncan because even though she and Macbeth got the crown, it wasn’t worth it because they can never be truly happy about it. She thinks death is better to have than living a life with questions of their future
While Iago has resentment to othello for not promoting him othello cannot see him as untrustworthy, Because of this othello never questioned him. Iago is good at manipulating people to do his bidding even if they don’t reason this. An example is when Cassio followed Iago advice and petition Desdemona to get othello to forgive Cassio for his mistake. Iago uses that to make Othello wrongfully read this event as deception– Ha!
Once her husband passes away, Janie views Jody's death as emancipation from the dominance he had established over her. She took advantage on her newly gained freedom and acted as such by letting down her hair, something Jody forbid due to its sexual undertone considering the other males in town. Also, she rebels against his wish to be called Jody by referring to him as Joe, symbolizing Janie no longer being under Jody's control. Janie tells Phoeby that she feels that widows do not need to mourn for such a long time, suggests that she believes women do not need to stay tied down to a man but rather should continue to find joy and pleasure in their lives even after loss. Although Janie is criticized by her society, she is seen as a pioneer of feminine freedom in a patriarchy dominant world.
In general, Shakespeare emphasizes that ambition for power and wealth can invalidate morality in human nature. Victory has sworn upon Macbeth and Banquo after the defeat of the king 's traitor Macdonwald. Shortly in the midst of returning home Banquo and Macbeth halt when three suspicious ladies came into view. One by one they told Macbeth his upcoming abundance of power.
That girls should be in a stupid bliss so it wouldn’t affect them because they wouldn’t be able to do anything about it. Daisy and Tom’s love wasn’t real love because if it was he would have been there for his daughters birth instead of God knows with whom. F. Scott Fitzgerald portrays women as hopeless and better off being stupid so they wouldn’t process and realize that their husband didn’t really love them and that love is just a unrealistic dream. Further, a modern writer Zora Neale Hurston wrote in her short story about a married couple in a small community. Where the wife named Lena has an open affair in front of the town and her husband.
Shortly after Joe becomes the mayor, Janie thinks to herself, “The wife of the mayor was not just another woman as she supposed. She slept with authority,”(46). Janie expresses how uneasy she feels about being the mayor’s wife, as the position she is in causes the townspeople to keep their distance from her. The fact that the townspeople are jealous of Janie also creates tension between them despite the fact that she wishes to make friends. Already on shaky terms with the townspeople, Janie feels even less love than before as Joe’s obsession with his work draws him away from her.
One of her more famous letters would discuss how John Adams should remember the ladies in forming the new government. ”Do not put such unlimited power into the hands of the husbands. Remember all men would be tyrants if they could. If particular care and attention is not paid to the ladies we are determined to foment a rebellion, and will not hold ourselves bound by any laws in which we have no voice or representation.” Although she had great influence on her husband’s decisions, he would ultimately forget about the ladies.
However at the end it’s clear that the reader’s reaction can change when she has the conversation with the Misfit, she repeatedly says “I know you’re a good man... You wouldn’t shoot a lady”(14-15), because the reader know thinks that she really is selfish but she’s also ignorant and petty. The only reason that the grandmother is saying positive things about the misfit is because her life is at risk and the second part of the quote shows that she cares about herself and doesn 't ask if he would kill all the family. It shows all her pettiness making the reader think “No wonder why June Star wants her dead”. This is the grandmother’s characteristics of being selfish, ignorant, petty and etc but underneath all the evil that the grandmother has there can be some good things in her just like the
Finally Juliet will not do something for someone other than a few people she loves (e.g Romeo and the nurse). Juliet was asking for comfort on an argument that took place earlier by reason of her not wanting to marry Prince. She was very distraught and emotional in this scene, and is asking for advice from the nurse. Prior to this argument the nurse supported Juliet’s decision on secretly marrying Romeo and not Prince, but once she saw how her parents reacted on Juliet not marrying Prince she took upon her parents side. Juliet didn’t listen to the nurse’s advice after this point since it wasn 't supporting what Juliet wanted anymore.
Although Othello has risen to power in a society where he is an outsider, he still believes he may be inferior because of it. His inability to disprove this belief in his marriage leads to his tragic downfall. After Shakespeare has first introduced the audience to the newlyweds, he immediately sends them off to challenges at Cyprus. Along with their own physical differences, they now lack the time to find a common ground of interests. This is the first crack in the foundation of Othello and Desdemona’s love.
