Iago has no proof that desdemona is cheating but because of his persuasive words and honest reputation othello believes him. Iago starts to mess with othello 's thoughts. Soon othello starts thinking and eventually planning his wife 's murder. Othello says to desdemona while trying to strangle her, Out, strumpet weep’st thou for him to my face...it is too late (Shakespeare 5.276-83).
Even up until she dies, Desdemona believes in her husband, referring to him as “my kind lord” and refusing to blame him for her death. While her death can’t be blamed directly on her confidence, if Desdemona had been more doubtful towards Othello, she may have been able to escape before he killed
Othello’s naive nature hindered him from seeking the truth of Desdemona and Cassio and finding out Iago had been lying the whole time. Iago may have been the cause of rumors, however Othello’s own doing ultimately caused him to suffer the consequences due to the fact that he did not communicate with his wife. He let a envious person control every aspect of his perception of his wife. He let a piece of fabric be the defining factor of whether or not his wife was faithful to him. It was the breaking factor of life and death which resulted the death of two innocent souls.
After all, she represents the scarlet letter: wild, passionate, and completely oblivious to the rules, mores, and legal statutes of the time. “But again Hawthorne, by connecting the above moral platitude and by portraying the elf child not as treacly little paragon- like little Eva- but rather as a goad as much as a comfort to her mother elevates the emotional tone of the situation so that it is hardly recognizable. ”(William 3). Pearls had a individualistic passionate innocence. Hawthorne presents hypocrisy with forgiveness.
Again they are deliriously in love because of the love drug. In the beginning of the play neither of the males want anything to do with Helena, she is blindly chasing after Demetrius desperate for his attention, but he brushes her off. Oberon orders puck to put the spell on Demetrius. “Thou shalt know the man by the Athenian garments he hath on.” (II, i ln 42 & 43)
Iago’s manipulation had worked, Othello easily fell for the scheme. Othello didn’t even logically think about how he knocked the handkerchief to the ground earlier, prior to when Iago said Desdemona gave it to Cassio. Even in the other schemes, when Cassio was talking to Iago about Bianca, Othello couldn’t even tell the difference between Bianca and Desdemona. This shows how Othello is losing his rational. After these schemes Iago manipulated Othello to kill Desdemona if he kills Cassio.
When Roderigo and an unknown man, Iago, transports the news of Desdemona’s affair with the Moor, Brabantio’s reaction suggests a feeling of betrayal, and the seemingly quaint relationship suddenly shows its flaws. Before even telling Brabantio of the news, Iago speaks with Roderigo that they will “poison [Brabantio’s] delight” (I.1.69), which in turn gives light to flaws of the relationship between Brabantio and his daughter, “yet throw such chances of vexation on’t as it may lose some colour” (I.1.73-74), for instance a lack of needed communication. To add insult to injury Iago phrases the betrayal in a rather detestable manner: “an old black ram is tupping your white ewe”
“... She loved me for the dangers I had passed And I loved her that she did pity them. This only is the witchcraft I have used” (1.3.66-168). Barbantio thinks that it is unnatural for his daughter to love an older black man. Because Othello understands Barbantio’s uncertainty he explains to Barbantio that despite their differences Desdemona
Through the mishaps in love, Shakespeare emphasizes outsiders’ influence can determine whether a relationship will fail or flourish. Benedick and Beatrice cannot stand each other at the opening by the play, but due to the manipulation of others, they are in love with each other as the play closes. Beatrice and Benedick make it well known in the 1st act they think very poorly of each other and Beatrice even states that “I had rather hear my dog bark at a crow than a man swear he loves me” giving the reader

Nonetheless, Cathy fails to delude him well enough, allowing him to see past her disguise to reveal the true, devil-like Cathy; her failure and poor foresight almost results in her death, and Mr. Edwards is the first to terrify her. Soon after her traumatic experience with Mr. Edwards, the Trask brothers take her in.

She orders Veronica to forge a romantic note from him, and gives it to Martha. She tries to stop them, but backs down when the Heathers threaten to destroy her social life ("Candy Store"). Their threats are witnessed by a mysterious, trenchcoat-wearing, Baudelaire-quoting new kid, Jason "J.D." Dean, who criticizes Veronica for betraying her friend in exchange for popularity. Ram and Kurt take the opportunity to pick a fight with him, and he unexpectedly fights back and defeats them.
For this reason, Ismene’s opinion on Antigone’s determination to bury their brother illustrates how realistic her thoughts and actions are. When Antigone asks for Ismene’s help to burry their brother Ismene points out the flaw in her plan, “ Burry him! You have just said that the new law forbids it.” Her underlying respect for her brother made Antigone impulsive with her decision to burry her brother. With this in mind, Ismene points out her underestimating the power of authority, which demonstrates her skill of not letting emotions, get in the way of her thinking unlike her sister.
—No more o ' that, my lord, no more o ' that. You mar all with this starting” (V.i line 36-38). Even though, Lady Macbeth had nothing to do with the murders after Duncan, like Banquo and Macduff’s wife as well as his son, she still feels guilty because she created the monster, by manipulating Macbeth to kill Duncan. Another reason Lady Macbeth feels remorseful is because she had to do with some of the action in the murder, for example planning the death of Duncan and framing Duncan 's attendant. The guilt is causing Lady Macbeth to go insane because she is aware “All the perfumes of Arabia will not sweeten this little hand.
When setting a goal, one often strategizes and uses various tactics to ultimately achieve one’s desired objective. In William Shakespeare’s Othello, the character of Iago does exactly that. Iago’s sinister intent is to ruin Othello’s life by gaining his trust and then backstabbing him. In order to ensure the success of his plot to “poison his delight” (Shakespeare 1.1. 68), Iago exploits the people around him with different methods. One of the most prominent strategies that Iago utilizes is racism - but this does not necessarily imply that he is a genuine racist.
