The first act of Othello is a microcosm of sorts for the entire play. In the first act, the reader sees Iago infect two characters with his evil methods, which are reflections of Iagos’ maneuvers in the subsequent Acts of the play, those Acts which progress according to Iago’s actions. In Shakespeare’s Othello, the characters’ strong and symbolic diction is an essential element in the progression of the events of the play. In considering the character of Iago with respect to his diction, the reader recognizes literary patterns which allow for a more profound insight into the text. Although these patterns should be viewed in light of the aggregate of the work, it is in Act 2 that the greatest amount of Iago’s metaphorical speech of disease and infection is found, wherein begins to craft his fatal web.

Strange things I have in head, that will to hand; Which must be acted ere they may be scann'd.

A mark of a good story is that the protagonists change from the beginning of the story to the end. Sometimes they can change from a well-respected being to someone who makes terrible decisions, or from a person who makes terrible decisions to a well-respected being. The change in a person usually depends on their environment and the people they choose to socialize with. In the play, Romeo and Juliet, there are particular changes in all of the main characters that can be pointed out by the end of the book. Juliet is the one that changes the most and acts differently towards the end of the play.

Through the experiences they have together, he becomes a less ignorant man, starting to feel guilt for what he has created in Gilead. Although some characters will always view the world through a single story, those who opened themselves up to new stories discovered an empathic view on situations.

The character Prince Fortinbras is the foil that is most similar but yet different, to Prince Hamlet,
People have experiences on a day-to-day basis, some small, some large, but they all shape who they are, and in turn affect their values for the good or for the bad. They are best shown through literature, since it allows for realistic life experiences to be created in fictitious worlds. Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Judith Ortiz Cofer’s “Abuela Invent the Zero” both demonstrate the protagonist developing more appropriate values from important life experiences. In each of these classic stories, the main characters, Tom and Constancia, both have life experiences that shape them to cherish new things and value ideas that cause them to become more suitable, and rational people. Tom Sawyer, the protagonist of The Adventures of Tom

There is not much time spend in description, but rather paving the way and letting Dave emotions and thinking of what is going on around him take primary stands in the story. Richard Wright whenever he writes a piece is very much concerned with primarily symbolic undertones of everyday life. Things that are in fact real and could happen due to the action of a certain play, and not a world where anything can happen he tries his very best to construct his stories and recreate the picture of the world as it is. Whenever we are not inside Dave 's head we still get a feeling of being participants this helps the reader
