It is a reflection of reality that drives the plots of his works. In “Twelfth Night,” all of the characters are affected by each other’s vices, their excesses. However, some of the characters are not as bound to a vice so they are able to (attempt in some cases) to show what it means to live apart from one’s excess. These virtuous people help improve the quality of life for many. Vices, the opposite of virtues, often keep people from living the best life they can.
Using his charm, good looks, and manners, Mr. George Wickham is able to deceive multiple characters throughout Pride and Prejudice in order to gain favor and sympathy. Initially, Mr. Wickham is introduced as an upstanding, friendly character who would be the perfect spouse for Elizabeth Bennett. He then evolves into a man in search of pity and wealth. George manages to turn blame and hatred onto others instead of owning up his own actions. Money and revenge are his motives, and he does not care who he has to hurt or mislead to obtain his goal.
His complexity means that he is a round character given that he is not a stereotype. The play portrays him as a romantic person through his thoughts and affection for Hero throughout the story. However, one might argue that his romantic ideals are imaginary since, which refers to his “love” to Hero. Claudio is also very naïve due to the fact, that he is fooled multiple times during the play. The main example of this is when he thinks Hero cheats on him and afterwards he shows that he is rather vindictive and impulsive given that his anger leads to the humiliation of Hero.
Iago let his vengeful ways and deceitful motives alter his decisions while Othello appears in the opening acts as the very personification of self control”(Harbage). The two characters are meant to balance each other out, but Iago gets too deep in Othello’s head, leaving him susceptible to lash out. Shakespeare wants to bring attention to the fact that no matter how hard one tries, the darkness creeps on eventually and wins. By this point in the play, all the character’s true colors have been shown. “Othello is forced to recognize that he lives in a tragic world, and he pays the price” which causes him to have his tragic downfall(Harbage).
This shows not only Polonius's dedication to the king but it also shows how Claudius has deceived him manipulating him into what he wants him to be so he can carry out Claudius’s plans. Lastly Claudius also deceives Gertrude. Though Gertrude is not the best person in the plot of the play she does genuinely seem to care a lot about the king but she also seems to care
Solan 2/XX/18 Peters H Revere him! Praise him! The New King’s Explosive Birth! The tragedy of Hamlet throws many characters at the reader with small bits of dialogue to establish their individual character, however specific characters receive page long soliloquies to further develop their personalities and give them certain traits and idiosyncrasies. Claudius presents himself as a fair gentleman, however his words reveal him to be a superficial charmer, manipulative and a corruptive man, making it perfectly believable when it is revealed that he was the one who murdered King Hamlet.
He uses deceitfulness and manipulation to get his victims to do what he wants. His victims are clueless as to what is happening until it’s too late. Othello and Cassio are both affected by Iago’s plan and are both damaged by it. The fair Desdemona is the god and saviour of the play. She never loses faith in Othello and loves him to the point of death.
Throughout the two plots the villains were capable of using Othello’s honor and proudness, and Oroonoko’s trusting nature along with the characters’ other greatest traits against them and turning them to be their reason for their demise. In the beginning of Shakespeare’s Othello, the reader discovers that Desdemona’s father, Barbantio, does not approve of her marriage to Othello. Yet, Othello and Desdemona were capable of achieving their happy ending at the beginning; with their love being able to defy all obstacles and everyone who were skeptical about their feelings for one another. Desdemona and Othello's love is polarized in many ways: She is a Venetian beauty from a noble family, who is desired by almost every man in Venice, while he is a Moor and not a true Venetian. Although their love is true and real, but it is steeped in adversity.
Another reason is that he did whatever was necessary to attain what he wanted. Lastly, when comparing King Henry’s leadership style to the other leadership styles in this play, it is evident that Henry was the most successful. King Henry VIII’s way of leading was quite different from other rulers and considerably questionable but, it was extremely intelligent and effective. He manipulated people and made them feel as if they could trust him, this made it significantly easier for him to obtain what he wanted from people. When More and Henry were having a conversation regarding the divorce in Act One of A Man for All Seasons, Henry leads More to believing he could trust him, as he allows More to freely speak his mind on matters concerning the divorce.
The characters within the play also seem to meditate on the fool’s intelligence both in As You Like It and Twelfth Night. In this play, Viola’s remarks about Feste, just like Jacques in As You Like It, makes her seem to hint that a fool needs to be wise as he analyses everyday life. This is when she says: “This fellow is wise enough to play the Fool,/ And to do that well, craves a kind of wit”. This play makes the fool appear more cunning and gives him a certain amount of credit for that, especially in the sub-plot with
