During this time, when Othello spots Desdemona with Cassio, Othello takes it out on her, thinking that she didn’t really love him.
The plot against Banquo could be argued to be an unjustified murder simply because of the irrational fear Macbeth had for his position as King. Lady Macbeth displays a distinction from that of herself from the beginning of the play by feeling guilty for the crimes that she and her husband had committed.

Lady Macbeth goes on a cleansing-craze when she starts to walk in her sleep.
One of the most prominent external conflicts Hamlet faces is man versus man, or Hamlet versus Claudius. Throughout Hamlet, Hamlet’s overall goal was to avenge his father’s death by killing Claudius, his uncle, for not only taking the throne but also for marrying his mother. Even after that throughout the play to cover up Hamlet’s intentions to kill Claudius, he begins to act insane, which in hopes people will dismiss him and suspect nothing. This also leads to Ophelia to become insane because the fact Hamlet acted like he did not love her. In the end Hamlet kills Claudius however, how he kills him is ironic because Claudius killed Hamlet’s father with poison and Claudius gets killed by his own poison.

In the play Hamlet, by William Shakespeare, the main character, Hamlet, claims and perceives women to be treacherous, heartless, and untrustworthy. The root of Hamlet's hatred for women seems to have began with his mother, Gertrude, and is then taken out on the fragile, young Ophelia. His father’s mysterious, unnatural death is also a possible cause of his beliefs and actions. Throughout the scenes, Hamlet’s mental state worsens and we can see a clear pattern of misogyny in his communication and actions with the female characters in the play. Hamlet’s deep-rooted hatred and confusion of love is much more complex than just the simple fact of misogyny or his dislike for women.
Ophelia is by far one of the most tragic characters in Shakespeare’s play The Tragedy of Hamlet. She loses everything she holds precious, such as her father and Hamlet’s affections, and is manipulated by the men who claim to love her. Throughout the play, Ophelia is nothing but a pawn in the men’s schemes. The people around her mask their true intentions, leading her to a life of deceit. Not to mention, the details of her death, as told by Queen Gertrude, are questionable and leave the reader in the shadows regarding the nature of her passing.

Overall Blame is a huge thing in Romeo and Juliet, we can blame the two characters themselves, and Friar for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet.
