He is a religious hypocrite who makes his way into Orgon’s world and then betrays him. Tartuffe is the focus of everyone’s conversation. It is very obvious at the beginning of the play, that Tartuffe has convinced Madame Pernelle and Orgon that he is a religious, holy, faithful, and humble man. We see the irony when Tartuffe and Elmire are alone and he tries to seduce her. It is evident to the reader and audience.
In pursuit of material wealth, Tartuffe successfully deceives Orgon and almost deceives the Kingdom, but in the end justice runs its course and he is thrown in jail. While residing the house of Orgon, Tartuffe is quoted saying, “There’ll be no sins for which we must atone, cause evil exists only when it is known” (Molière). Throughout the play, Tartuffe attests to the validity of these words as he successfully deceives Orgon within the confines of his own home. The initial sight of Tartuffe’s fraudulence took place in the church, when Orgon found him impoverished, praying for money. From this moment on, Tartuffe was able to hack into the mind of Orgon and manipulate him for his own benefit.
She feels like she knows best, of how it should be ran. Madame Pernelle’s main problem with this household is that they all believe that Tartuffe isn’t who he portrays to be. They all believe he is a hypocrite. The fact that they think and believe this really makes Madame Pernelle furious. She tells them that they’re going to hell, that they’re fools, sluts, etc.
He is jealous of Othello, show in, “I confess it is my shame to be so fond/but it is not in my virtue to amend it” (1.3:316-317). Roderigo is desperate for Desdemona and Iago takes advantage of this and makes him do thing such as kill Cassio. Roderigo does all of Iago’s dirty work and makes his plan successful. Also, Roderigo is unintelligent and realizes too late that his “money is almost spent” (2.3:364-368). Iago makes several false promises to Roderigo and he does not expose Iago because he is desperate for love.
One way Poe uses situational irony is when he starts to describe how Montresor was dress and the what carnival was like. In the story Poe describes how Montresor is dress like a joker. Poe also describes how the carnival is not a fun and exciting place to be. While Montresor was dress like the joker it distracts Fortunato so he does not expect anything horrible to happen to him. Which is not really true because Fortunato is still going to be the victim of a heinous
Tartuffe is a play written by Moliere. When it was first written, it elicit a huge scandal leading to it being banned. It incorporate several themes in a short, comedic play that unmask religious pretense and absurdity. It is one of the greatest play that exposes society problem during that period.
Ladies and gentlemen of the court, the evidence will show that Iago manipulated Othello to follow a path of lies and destruction, making him kill Desdemona. Othello was a Christian Moor who was secretly married to his faithful, independent wife Desdemona who was the daughter of Venetian senator Brabantio. Iago was Othello’s ensign and was upset about being passed over for the promotion of lieutenant. The man who received the promotion of lieutenant was Michael Cassio. Cassio was a good-looking young man, who Iago despised for attaining the promotion.
Othello’s jealousy, like Iago’s determination, results in his own downfall. For most of the play Othello appears to be an extremely well composed general who remains calm in the face of disaster. However once Iago confides in Othello that he believes Desdemona is cheating on him, Othello transforms into an entirely different person. Believing her to be unfaithful, Othello heartlessly suffocates Desdemona in her bed despite her denying being involved in any affair up until her final breath. Othello’s jealousy causes him to jump to conclusions and not doing his due diligence in investigating Desdemona’s possible infidelity himself.
Since the beginning of time man has been headstrong and egotistical leading to struggles with other people.

Based on his actions we can tell that Montresor is full of revenge because he plots to kill his own friend.
