Lastly, marginalization makes Othello the dominated individual, which contributes to his demise. Othello says to Iago that: Ay, let her rot and perish … Oh, the world hath not a sweeter creature, she might lie by an emperor’s side and command him tasks. (Shakespeare 4.1.172-176) Iago’s marginalization causes Othello to repeatedly doubt himself and this results in his own personality completely faltering. While Othello used to be a dominant individual, believing the rumors from Iago causes his honor and confidence to fall apart. This transforms Othello into a dominated minority who lives under the manipulation of Iago.
The feeling of getting revenge starts the signs of active nihilism in Hamlet. Hamlet goes through passive nihilistic views in most of the play and shows this through his lack of motivation to live. Hamlet says, “How weary, stale, flat and unprofitable seem to me all the uses of this world,” (I,2). Hamlet talks on how that everything in this world is useless. This suggests that he really does not have a reason to live.
The two main female characters in the play Hamlet, Gertrude and Ophelia, are portrayed as weak, vulnerable, and inferior, and are manipulated by the men, which ultimately leads to their demise. The role of Gertrude as wife, queen, and mother are significant
Using the exploration of the theme of hatred, Shakespeare reveals Orsino 's conflicted emotions through symbolism. Throughout this point in the play, he is presented to feel a sense of betrayal because he is embarressed by Olivia 's lack of internest in him. Previously being characterised as self rightous and obsessed, this embarresment is magnified. A tone of frustration is crafted through Orsino 's pitiful complaint claiming his soul "breathed out" faithfull offerings Olivia did not accept. The use of personification here exaggerates Orsino 's devotion to Olivia which she apparently doesn 't appreciate.
She tends to arouse controversy. Firstly, Patient Griselda represents other women as the weak and really hopeless creatures who do not have any rights and are totally dependent on the men. Without men's instructions and help they are not able to do some particular activities. It means that wives should be fully submissive to their husbands who do not show any respect for them. That is why, the acts of Griselda seem to be absurd.
While, she is not yet satisfied with her life and attempts to escape the feud, and ultimately the feud. Though, this is utterly impossible. Shakespeare continues with, “O God, I have an ill-divining soul!/Methinks I see thee, now thou art below,/As one dead in the bottom of a tomb.” (3.5.54-56). Juliet foreshadows herself and Romeo having an “ill-divining soul”, suggesting the death of the pair. She can’t seem to find an explanation for these thoughts,“Either my eyesight fails or thou look 'st pale.” (3.5.57).
He spoke to a ghost, and this ghost stated that his father 's death was a murder, by the hand of his uncle, Claudius. "The serpent that did sting thy father 's life now wears his crown." Hamlet was astonished, and then swore vengeance for his father 's death. He then proceeded to try and prove his uncle 's guilt, and then finally kills him while he himself is dying of poisoned wounds inflicted by Laertes during their duel. This left the King dead, and his father 's
Eventually, Ophelia’s heartache, along with the death of her father, causes her to commit suicide. Next, Claudius and Gertrude’s role play affect their relationship with Hamlet. At the beginning of the play, Claudius takes on the role of a kind, just king; he seems to genuinely care for Hamlet. He often gives him fatherly advice, and shows affection for Hamlet in ways that an uncle would. However, Hamlet soon discovers that Claudius has been lying to him, and Claudius’ real motive is to kill Hamlet in order to exterminate all possible threats to his reign.
Hamlet and Ophelia “This was sometime a paradox, but now the time gives it proof. I did love you once… I loved you not” (3.1.114,119). Confusion clouds the audience’s judgement reading this quote from Hamlet. His paradox insinuates that he is insane and truly did not love her. Contrary to belief though, this quote was a way to set his “mousetrap” and force her to be in the background of his grand scheme.
Shakespeare further portrays men to be the instigators of betrayal, as Hamlet forgets that he ever loved Ophelia. Through, being overcome with intense hatred and anger at his mother, Hamlet denies ever having loved Ophelia, and orders her “to a nunnery”. It is Hamlet who instigates such betrayal, as he previously says “My fair Ophelia- Nymph” through “Nymph” Hamlet is describing Ophelia as a beautiful maid, thus highlighting his love for her. Yet, his attitude thereafter is considerably callous, as he continually questions Ophelia on her “honesty”. The continual questioning reflects that of a grueling and in part contributes to Ophelia’s later madness.
In short, the duplicity of Nora’s nature accounts for her morally ambiguous which serve as a major source of conflict to her relationship and the play 's plot as a hole. It is her ambiguity that keeps the reader from defining Nora and choosing a definitive side in the conflict. That is to say, that many readers find it hard to support Nora and her feministic rise above the societally accepted views of the time period when the question of her subsequent turn from family and her children also comes into view. She remains in the proverbial grey area, hidden from the clear cut values of black and white-- good and evil. Furthermore, Nora’s ambiguous nature drives the conflicts in the play, acting as the source of tension between her and her husband, Dr. Rank, and Krogstad as her decision to overlook the laws in an effort to save her husband prove a perilous decision in regards to her way of life.
The point Jones’ maybe about misogyny being “the inevitable result” is directly reflected by the relationship Hamlet had with Ophelia and Gertrude. The lack of a strong women role in Hamlet, or even a women that loved Hamlet produced a misogynistic mindedness. He only had two women in his life to was “inevitable” who collective destroyed his view of women. If Hamlet would of had a more model mother or a love interest with a woman who loved him back, he wouldn’t have been misogynistic. The result of his mother being a heartless whore and Ophelia being a complete pushover and coward lead to Hamlet hating all women.
