The differences of these quotes are that in one point of the story he was still cool, calm, and collected, but at the end of the play he is talking like a deranged murderer shows that iago had a large effect on his mental status and his plan had worked which was to basically ruin othello's life. The way that Iago manipulated the situation is quite genius, he was able to use things like the handkerchief and mention it to othello by saying. “Her honor is an essence that’s not seen,They have it very oft that have it not.But for the handkerchief” By saying it this way he made it sound like desdemona and cassio would have gotten away with their affair and their undeserved reputations would not be tarnished if it wasn't for the handkerchief, this is the deciding factor in iago's plan because the handkerchief is the symbol of love and loyalty in othello's marriage and to “have given it to her lover” would destroy othello's trust and willingness to listen to reason so he did something crazy and that was to kill her. So he did and in the end othello killed desdemona and then himself, and while he is killing himself emelia figures it all out and iago kills her as well so in the end iago is the one who is really the sole factor in all of this, if it wasn't for him wanting his revenge none of this would have happened and 3 people would not be dead. On top of all the evils he had done to othello iago also manipulated Roderigo from the beginning of the play to the end.
Deception, defiance and double meanings are what make Shakespeare’s plays the great wonder that they are today. Shakespearian is known as the most poetic, romantic and comic form of play writing, however each play has strong morals and meanings in them. One of Shakespeare’s plays, the Merchant of Venice, focuses of the acts of deception. Some say that none of the characters in the play are seen as ‘kind’ by the end of it, stating that: “Grace, nobility and generosity of spirit are submerged by greed, distrust and ugly prejudice.” This play enlightens true meanings of deception on nearly every level; from Jessica deceiving her father, Shylock being deceived by the court and the deceitful tale of ‘the rings’, that is seen throughout the Merchant of Venice. Jessica is the beautiful daughter of Shylock the Jew, who she despises greatly.
. If genius is a madness, Hamlet was mad, but the maddest man that ever lived in England was Shakespeare, who made Hamlet. The fact is that Shakespeare never intended to represent Hamlet as mad or half mad, or verging on madness, and when he wished to represent real madness and to contrast it with feigned madness. He created the real madness of Ophelia and did it with wonderful truth and skill. There is not a trace of madness in
An overwhelming amount of evidence shows that Hamlet faked his insanity to confuse the king and his accomplices. Often revered for their emotional complexities, William Shakespeare’s tragic characters display various signs of mental illness. Sylvia Morris notes “Hamlet contains Shakespeare’s most fully-developed study of mental illness, and has always intrigued commentators on the play.” (“Shakespeare’s Minds Diseased: Mental Illness and its Treatment”). When looking at the play, one can infer that Shakespeare makes the relationship between sanity and insanity undistinguishable from one another. At the beginning of the play, Hamlet is melancholic and in a state of grief, which is not out of the ordinary because he is still mourning the loss of his father.
Love and Death Alway Go Together “Love is the only force capable of turning an enemy into a friend”-Martin Luther King Jr.. This quote goes with the story Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, because in the end love is what brings peace along with death to the households of the Capulet's and Montague's. William Shakespeare is regarded as one of the best writers of all time because of how he was able to put tragedy, comedy, and love all together in one story. In his tale Romeo and Juliet, he manages to do just that but it also raises many questions about the play, one of those being who is to blame for Romeo and Juliet's deaths. Who is to blame can be interpreted in many different ways because no one knows for sure where the true blame lies.
Overall, Shakespeare used the characterization of furious Capulet, who is typically very benevolent and understanding, to show the theme of how people’s emotions lead them to make crazy and uncontrolled decisions. In conclusion, the theme of people letting their sentiment outweigh their decision making skills is shown in Romeo and Juliet. William Shakespeare used the characterization of a madman and a loving boy to project this. Capulet often made poor decisions by shouting hurtful comments, while Romeo made doltish decisions by doing overly affectionate things. Both of these characters, along with other people nowadays, make this mistake everyday.
Shakespeare does this mainly to show that being confident is good and virtuous, but that arrogance causes many problems and is best if just left alone. Arrogance is not the only cause of Caesar’s death, but it is Brutus’s justification. Cassius is arrogant and that is part of the whole plot to kill Caesar in the first place. These are just some of the examples of this motif in the
The tragedy of Othello written by William Shakespeare presents the main character Othello as a respectable, honorable, and dignified man. However, because of his insecurities and good nature he is easily taken advantage of and manipulated by his alleged friends. Shakespeare is known for his exceptional ability to compose plays full of deceit, revenge, and jealousy. Jealousy is an underlying theme throughout the tragedy and has been represented by many of the main characters, such as Iago, Roderigo, and Othello. The topic of jealousy will ultimately lead to the demise of many characters throughout the tragedy.
Hamlet is a sort of amalgamation of the two, a bundle of contradictions thrown together into one conflicting but very human mess of a character. The quote, "We admire Hamlet as much for his weaknesses as for his strengths", aptly describes my feelings towards this troubled young prince. It is simply impossible to characterise Hamlet as good or bad, strong or weak. It is my aim to show the depth of Hamlet 's personality and to explain to the best of my ability the traits which make him who he is. Hamlet is the neither the hero nor the villain of his story- he is simply a victim, a young man slowly losing his grip on sanity over the course of the play.
Bottom has ridiculous confidence in his ability. In the final play, many critics are set towards the play-within-the play Pyramus and Thisbe which contains many fancy ideas of Bottom like asking an actor to cast a wall, but he claims to the audience that “you shall see, it [the plot] will fall pat as I told you” (5.1.183-186 AMND). Bottom firmly believes in his own talent, so he still hope others appreciate his play which is actually no so appreciable. Shakespeare might unconsciously create this hilarious character based on mocking his own pride, for Shakespeare has encountered similar situations. He continued to create numerous
My personal opinion on if Hamlet slips into madness is yes, that he does actually go insane in the play. In the following paragraphs I 'm going to talk about my opinion on the matter, why I think it Hamlet is not just acting and the evidence I can gather from either side of the argument. On the other hand, I also feel like Hamlet is just merely acting the part, that he is actually not insane, and just showing it. In the story of Hamlet, Hamlet has the feeling
