These decisions led to seclusion from society and the ones they loved.

Medea, a play by Euripides, centres around a woman named Medea who is wronged by her husband, Jason, when he marries another woman and leaves Medea. The popular opinion involving this play is that Jason is a horrible person, and he was in the wrong for causing Medea all of her pain. It is important to look at this play from both sides, however, and Jason’s argument is compelling enough to show that he was not as horrible of a person for what he had done and that the choices he had made were for the benefit of his family, despite breaking his vows. Medea is the real villain of this play, and Jason is one of her many victims. He consistently speaks about his desire to protect his family and talks of reasoning with the royal family so Medea is
However, Iago is not the only one that is to take all the blame. 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.
Jason’s new marriage with Glauce plummeted Medea into revengeful and passionate fury. She had given up everything to live with Jason after which he had cheated and tricked her.

In the process of wanting to gain honor, he had backstabbed Medea by demoting her from the status of a legal wife to that of a concubine.
It was a terrible decision due to the fact that later on lovers are separated and are miserable without each other. To save their marriage, they try to fool their families, but the plan fails and both of the characters end up killing themselves. While their deaths might have been an effect of their parents’ feud, this story would not be successful due to other complications in their relationships. This Shakespeare’s play has influenced many writers and professors to write their own opinion on the possibility of love at first
Based on the aghast reactions after Claudio’s reveal of Hero’s immodesty, it is clear to say that when a woman loses her honor by being accused of adultery or of being unvirtuous, she instantly loses all her social grace and is considered deceased to all the members of her society. In fact, Claudio didn’t only tarnish Hero’s reputation in his act of publicly savaging her, but he also ruined the whole family’s standing in Messina. Given that the loss of a woman’s honor is considered a form of eradication from society during Shakespeare’s time, it is relevant of Friar Francis to suggest Hero’s supposed death which will “change slander to remorse” (4.1.210). In other words, Hero’s fake death doesn’t only serve as a method to induce guilt in Claudio’s heart, because it may also represent how she needs to symbolically die in order to purify her tainted honor in order to start anew and remarry
This does not include the fact that she lead Gatsby on throughout the whole entire book. Gatsby gained feelings for this women that only wanted to get revenge on her husband.

Hamlet has come to see his mother, Queen Gertrude, and ends up stabbing Lord Polonius, which ultimately leads to his death. Lord Polonius’ final words include “O, I am slain!” Even though this provides a slight amount of comic relief to the reader, it has a reverse effect on Ophelia’s mental state. Her father’s death seems to be the potent punch in this fight because she officially goes mad after this final event. This is apparent in Scene IV Act I, when Laertes has come back to visit his sister and check on her well being. He is disappointed to see that Ophelia is displaying irrational behavior when she begins to sing “They bore him barefac’d on the bier; Hey non nonny, nonny, hey nonny; And on his grave rains many a tear.” She is so mentally ill that she must be locked in a padded room during the day.
