In the thought provoking play, Much Ado About Nothing, a character named Don John displayed very unchristian like thoughts and actions. Throughout the play, Don John became a very jealous individual, this led him to lie multiple times, and demonstrate a dastard attitude. Don John claims himself as a trouble maker, and he doesn`t fail to disappoint. Many main characters such as Hero, Claudio, and Don Pedro were greatly affected by Don John’s deceptive plots. By making no efforts to change his displeasing habits, Don John creates unnecessary jealously, deceitfulness and a finally a fleeing coward.
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.
Attempting to destroy someone’s life because of jealousy is cruel. Another instance of how Shakespeare conveys that jealousy is the motivation behind committing malicious acts is when jealous Othello decided to kill Desdemona for being “unfaithful” stating, “For to deny each article with oath cannot remove
He manipulates and constantly lies to everybody. It is suggested that Iago is a compulsive liar, who likes to be in control of the situation and keep secrets, as this increases his feeling of self-importance. His hidden personality prevents people from getting to know him, keeping himself alienated while feeling powerful over others. Iago only stays friends with Roderigo because he is taking money from him. Iago used manipulation to make Othello believe that his wife, Desdemona, was cheating on him with his Lieutenant, Cassio, who had been promoted over Iago.
The Honest Traitor The play Othello by William Shakespeare narrates the tragedy of Othello and his wife, Desdemona’s relationship as well as the story of a jealous man who revenges on his commander. Iago, this envious man, creates a well-crafted plot to destroy his commander, Othello, and his wife’s marriage. With both the help of his clever manipulation as he uses people’s character traits against them and many coincidental events that contribute to the completion of his plan, Iago is able to deceive Othello into believing Desdemona’s adultery but stay true to himself as he often speaks freely of his views. As he carries out his scheme, Iago demonstrates a paradox as an honest traitor as he betrays his commander but speaks truthfully to himself and others at most times. At the beginning of the play, Iago openly confesses to Roderigo and reassures himself about his false appearance as well as his complete detached devotion to Othello; he also shows
Despite the fact that he at first does not have any vindictive considerations and thoughts, he in the long run becomes a murderer due to emotionally untrustworthy and jealousy. As you read the play it isn't basic to connect Othello with such spellbinding words as vain, however he is in each feeling of the word. Othello loses his tempers effortlessly as a kid does when disappointed and Iago knew how to play with his unsteady personality that produced because of the idea of his wife is heating on him. Also, obviously that is of course a lie. All

Even though Hamlet says to the audience that he is not insane, it is just part of his evil scheme for the king of Denmark:Claudius. Claudius murdered his brother, takes over the throne and marrying his brother's wife.

When Hamlet decides this it truly reveals himself as a villain because he is scheming to send Claudius to a place worse than purgatory. When people's ideas of a heroic act differ from others, people can be seen as a villain while they are looking to become just the opposite. This is revealed in William Shakespeare’s Hamlet where the titular character Hamlet murders Laertes, Polonius, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, and when he doesn’t murder Claudius while he is
Iago’s jealousy is essentially what creates the whole play of Othello. His jealousy is what motivates him to start manipulating everyone in order to get revenge. His actions done in jealousy cause multiple deaths and make a great man turn into an insecure and irrational one. He creates a domino effect in which every action has a consequence that benefits him but slowly ruins everyone around him. Iago tells Othello to beware of jealousy because “..it is the green-eyed monster…” (Shakespeare.
