Transitioning to Act Three we see a side of Elizabeth that wouldn’t expect which would be dishonesty to save John from his death. Elizabeth being known through Salem for never telling a lie, is asked to tell the truth about John committing adultery so they can both be free. “I came to think he fancied her. And so one night I lost my wits I think, and put out on the highroad,” (1148).

When Henry says “My letter----don’t be frightened----was to tell you that Sibyl Vane is dead” (Dorian Gray, 71) Dorian is shaken about how his drastic actions caused Sybil to kill herself.

In the tale, the two characters, Iago and Othello provide the basis for unfolding tales of lies, deception, intrigue, hate and envy. Iago’s character uses manipulation of multiple people to enact his vengeance against Othello who he believes committed adultery with Iago’s wife Emilia. To plot his revenge, Iago spins his own web of lies from planting the idea in Othello’s head that his wife is sleeping with his lieutenant, Cassio.

In his theory of dissociation he stated that: “The nature of conscious activity, especially partial automatism in which a part of one's personality is split off from self-awareness and follows an autonomous subconscious development”. Janet’s theory of the subconscious can be compared to Freud’s theory which is: “the unconscious mind governs behavior to a greater degree than people suspect”. Although there’re differences in the two theories, the main idea still remains, that the subconscious mind comprises thoughts inaccessible to the consciousness but to some extent, affect our behaviours personalities. Carl Jung (1953) also arrived at the same theory as Freud regarding the subconscious mind . However, there is a major difference between Jung and Freud’s model of the unconsciousness.
In the beginning of Trifles the reader learns that Mrs.Wright that is imprisoned for killing her husband and that it is their goal to find out why throughout the story. But in this play it is all of the small things that make up the big picture. For example the way that Mr.Wright died is one of the major factors of simplicity, for the fact that he died by a knot being tied tightly around his throat.
