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.
Gatsby wanted to be one thing he never was, he wanted to be able to say he was born rich, “He is intrigued by the promise of Daisy’s world-one which he never before experienced because of his lower class.” (A Propensity to Love…Or Not: Jay Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan are and Are Not “Women in Love”). Not only has Daisy intrigued Gatsby, but also her lifestyle, Gatsby wanted to live that way. When Gatsby thinks about his life, he is scared, “He’s terrified that he’ll always be ‘Mr. Nobody from Nowhere.’” (The Problem With The Great Gatsby’s Daisy Buchanan). If he could marry Daisy and live her life, he would have everything he wanted.
The novel can be seen everywhere that Gatsby loves Daisy. However, he is really so obsessed with Daisy. He subconsciously thinks that he love Daisy. Before he obtained wealth, “Daisy” means “the glorious history” which the upper class did not accept hiself. This wonderful experience stimulate him to make money and try his best to enter into the upper class.
In the beginning when Iago tried to manipulate Othello to believing Desdemona cheated, Othello would regain his reasoning from looking at her beauty. But now Othello would lose more reasoning and be in rage. Iago’s manipulation had worked, Othello easily fell for the scheme. Othello didn’t even logically think about how he knocked the handkerchief to the ground earlier, prior to when Iago said Desdemona gave it to Cassio. Even in the other schemes, when Cassio was talking to Iago about Bianca, Othello couldn’t even tell the difference between Bianca and Desdemona.
Tom lies to Myrtle about Daisy’s religious affiliations to get out of marrying her, and Daisy can’t bring herself to completely cut ties with Tom to recreate the past with Gatsby. They never think of their partners and equals, with Daisy showing disdain for Gatsby’s parties, and Tom harshly reminding Myrle of her place in the lower class. They take away the choice of their partners, returning to their comfortable positions at the top of society, the position they were born into, when all is said and done. In the middle are the social climbers, who, although not born wealthy, try in their own ways to reach that status, and are ultimately thwarted because of their starting point; they struggled against the current of a harsh and indifferent world and got swept away. For example, Myrtle is a resident of the Valley of Ashes.
The Love Story That Ended With a Tragedy Fate or Friar Lawrence, whom is to blame for the death of Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet? Were the two lovers destined to die or was it the foolish and irresponsible decisions made by Friar Lawrence? Friar Lawrence is a man of high regards; he is a holy man who is trusted, respected and looked upon for guidance by not only Romeo and Juliet but by the citizens of Verona. Friar Lawrence’s decisions were negligent and vacuous ultimately leading to the lovers deaths. Friar Lawrence irresponsibly married Romeo and Juliet after the naïve couple only knew each other for 24 hours.
These decisions led to seclusion from society and the ones they loved. King Lear and Norma’s microcosms were based on distorted perceptions and caused the discrepancy between their old fashioned ways and their modern societies. Norma was ignorant to believe that she was still top dog in Hollywood and Lear was irrationally blind to his daughter’s
Brabantio views on Othello and Desdemona’s relationship were quite different from his daughters. “Look to her, Moor, if thou hast eyes to see: She has deceiv’d her father and may thee” (Shakespeare.1.3.289-290). Brabantio says this quote to Othello saying that she deceives her father by being with the Moor, so why wouldn’t she deceive him as well. Brabantio didn’t approve of the relationship because he is the Moor and this is racist. This is heartbreaking because he was friendly to Othello and welcoming him into his home until he finds out he was sleeping with his daughter.
Macbeth is a play about subterfuge and trickery. Macbeth, his wife, and the three Weird Sisters are linked in their mutual refusal to come right out and say things directly. Instead, they rely on implications, riddles, and ambiguity to evade the truth. Macbeth’s ability to manipulate his language and his public image in order to hide his foul crimes makes him a very modern-seeming politician. However, his inability to see past the witches’ equivocations—even as he utilizes the practice himself—ultimately leads to his downfall.
What the Capulets did to Juliet explains why they were selfish because instead of respecting Juliet’s decision they thrash on her and say things to force her to become a wife. This disconnect with their daughter is why they were not able to save Juliet from death. The other factor that caused the demise of Romeo and Juliet was their want for their desires. For instants, Romeo did not think about the consequences of meeting with Juliet even though he was being hunted. For example, the balcony scene where Romeo is confessing his love to Juliet.
As well, to Tom, Myrtle is not good enough to bring up to his social class. Her mannerisms are too violent, and she is not suited for the rich lifestyle. Because of this he keeps up the lie of Daisy being catholic, to keep Myrtle in his control and keep her where she is. For Myrtle though, she sees it as her opportunity. She ultimately wants to leave the Valley of Ashes, and be married to Tom.
Gatsby never asks Daisy how she feels about this; he feels compelled to speak on her behalf because he is just so certain of her feelings towards him. Since Daisy married Tom, Gatsby is convinced that he must be as wealthy and prestigious as Tom to win her back, but that is not the case. Daisy once fell in love with Gatsby not for his money, but for the non tangible things he was able to give to
The objectification of Daisy is complete when Gatsby tells Nick, “Her voice is full of money,” (127) towards the end of the novel. Daisy’s voice is one of the most mystical parts about her, it represents her- enchanting and beautiful. However, Gatsby and Nick don’t know how to value Daisy outside of the money values that govern their lives, and continue to simplify her to
The fact that Romeo and Juliet where each from families that hated the other guaranteed they were doomed from the second they laid eyes on each other, so here death is the fault of the parents. In a way, if the Montagues and Capulet’s could’ve just been friends, all these deaths could’ve been avoided. Therefor the deaths were the parents were the parents fault, not the Friar’s. This is not accurate, because even if the families were best friends, Lord Capulet would have still wanted Juliet to marry Paris not Romeo , and they woul have gotten in a feud
The fact that Romeo fails to comply with the rule that a Montague and Capulet cannot marry shows his impulsivity. Juliet only briefly thinks of the difficulty of the two families coming together, but is then drawn back to Romeo’s convincing suggestion. This situation is one of the fatal mistakes that leads to the death of Romeo, Juliet, and many others. In another instance, Tybalt engaged in a fight with Mercutio, Romeo’s best friend, resulting in Mercutio’s death. Mercutio stepped in to take Romeo’s place unaware of the fact that Romeo was now part of the Capulet family and therefore unwilling to fight Tybalt, Juliet’s cousin.
