Shakespeare writes the play giving the audience the final decision of who is at fault for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. Throughout the play fault can be placed on Romeo. He makes a variety of choices that lead to Juliet’s death and his own. Romeo is constantly blaming his own careless behaviors on fate.
In the play, the author seemingly juxtaposes both Othello and his nemesis, Iago. However, upon closer inspection, Othello and Iago suffer from similar flaws. Iago, using his knowledge of his own flaws-- jealousy and vengeance--, exploits Othello’s need for reputation, ultimately ruining
In addition, the blood motif metaphorically represents the fateful choices of Macbeth and alludes to his inevitable death. Macbeth is now acknowledging the fact that he has no choice but to progress, and through his attempts to disrupt the natural order, the idea that Macbeth’s downfall occurs as a repercussion for his own decisions is
I think that people do put on a lot of masks to make people think they’re different than their actual personality is. Tom Walker and the devil both had those type of attitudes along with Tom Walker’s wife. In conclusion greed and manipulation does not get you very far in
In the being of the Crucible Reverend John Hale felt pride that he was a specialist in the field of witchcraft. He did everything thing that he know how to do but that was not enough to bring a court to Salem. When the author wrote the book people were dealing with the threat of communism and how they thought that it would corrupt the world and get into America. Hale in the story made a choice to stop the hangings, when there was left only the most respected people in Salem but the judge would not hear it. when the court went too far hale just had to quit and when he returned he said to Goody Proctor “..., I have gone this three month like our Lord into the wilderness.
This is evident in soliloquy of Macbeth, ‘My thought… hakes so my single state of man that function is smother’d in surmise…’ His ‘thought’, which is about good and bad of witches’ prophecies, makes him to deceive himself. Also, since it is soliloquy, no one can stop him to think excessively, so it makes him to lose his mind. As he starts to manipulate himself that the prophecies from witches ‘cannot be ill’, the dramatic irony makes the audiences feel anxiety because they know the deception leads him to destruct his life. Another great example of this is ‘a dagger of mind, a false creation…’ in soliloquy of Macbeth.
Lastly, Iago’s biggest take down is Othello. He acknowledges that Othello's weakness is Desdemona and uses it to his advantage. Jealousy is what drives Othello to do crazy things towards Cassio and Desdemona. Although Othello is a great leader, he lets Iago alter his perception through words and suffers. Iago convinces Othello of Desdemona’s infidelity when he“visually” explains how he has caught Cassio and Desdemona together.
This could lead these characters to an undesirable ending. In Hamlet, Claudius and Polonius deceive in order to maintain power; Gertrude, Rosencrantz, and Guilderstein deceive in order to maintain their superficial items that Claudius has given them; Laertes deceives to get revenge for the death of his father and to protect Ophelia. All of these characters try to use deception for their own benefit, but in the end you reap what you sow. These characters all have the same thing in common, they deceive Hamlet to be able to carry out their plans. As these characters begin to deceive Hamlet, he counteracts their efforts in order to carry out his master plan of
‘Iago is such a disturbing villain because he seems to have no real motives for his evil.’ How far and in what ways do you agree with this view? Iago is nothing more than a devious mastermind and Machiavellian of the Shakespearean tragedy, Othello. Whilst Iago does try to communicate multiple reasons for his motives in wanting to destroy Cassio and Othello these are mere rationalisations and excuses to provide justification for his evil actions and can only be accepted when analysing Othello on a surface level.
Romeo’s personality takes sharp turns throughout the play as rash decisions are made and their consequences start to take form. Shakespeare portrays Romeo’s impulsivity through his attitudes toward Rosaline and Juliet, as well as his change in tone and humour throughout the play. Shakespeare sets the stage with an atmosphere full of unbalance and tension to drive Romeo to make impulsive decisions, leading the plot to spiral out of control and Romeo to bring his own demise. In the play, Romeo seeks the attention
Many of those accused as witches died not just because of the accusers but, because of the unfairness of the trials. The judges of the trials used spectral evidence, ignoring the accused, and the judges were unfair because they believed in witches and want those who were witches dead. In the trials judges used spectral evidence. Spectral evidence is when the accused claim that they saw the spirit of the person on trial do something that they should not have done.
