Using the character of Roderigo, Iago manipulates him into doing everything he wants. At the beginning of the tragedy, Iago and Roderigo are talking poorly about Othello. Roderigo, who is in love with Desdemona, is upset due to hearing that Othello and Desdemona have recently married. Iago, who just found out Othello did not give him
Or did she betray her lady or duly serve her husband? I truly do not know if I believe that Emilia redeemed herself in the end because she is the person whom put the handkerchief in her husband’s hands which pretty much caused this entire tragedy to happen all together. Of course it never would have happed without Iago’s hatred and revenge on Othello so it is easy to say that one would not have happened without the other. I think that the problem here is Iago he is the one who put all these thoughts into her head to do these things for her husband and had he not done this when Desdemona dropped her handkerchief in the first place she would have picked it up and told her lady as soon as it happened.
Character can be broken despite how strongly it is shaped. In William Shakespeare’s tragedy, Othello, Othello was a brave Moor who was quick to marry his lover Desdemona. His sinister ensign Iago deceived him into believing his loyal wife had committed adultery. Although Othello believed the alleged accusations, he also gave up his moral character to Iago. Regardless of the lack of trust from Othello, Desdemona did deceive her father prior to the situation.
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. This shows how Othello is losing his rational. After these schemes Iago manipulated Othello to kill Desdemona if he kills Cassio.
This play captures the rise and fall of King Macbeth. Shakespeare shows the reader that one persons greed can get him killed and other people around to turn on him, By showing the reader what decisions Macbeth made to elevate his status in power. The kind of people who changed around them and how they changed. Furthermore in Act 1, Macbeth is given a prophecy that he would become king by three witches. This leads to him into thinking greedy and commiting murder.
Othello thought he deserved the promotion that Othello gave to Cassio. He felt like he had to get Othello back he said things like “ My career is cut short by some bookkeeper, even though the general saw my fighting skills first hand. He’s so upset that he schemes a plan that will tear Desdemona and Othello’s marriage apart and Cassio will lose his position as lieutenant. Iago’s plan starts off when he and Roderigo go to Desdemona’s father Brabantio house and tell him that she had been kidnapped by the moor and that they are now married. Brabantio thought that Othello tricked, drugged, or kidnapped her.
The ambitious and manipulated Macbeth reflects Shakespeare’s message in Macbeth that too much ambition leads to ruin. “Behold where stands Th’ usurper’s cursed head”(5.8,65-66) Macbeth meets his fated end by the hands of Macduff due to his overconfidence from the prophecy the witches told him. Macbeth is influenced by the witches and his wife, but in the end, his ambition and greed for power brought him to his end. From Macbeth as a character, we know that Shakespeare intended to show that too much ambition is bad.
At the end of her soliloquy, she says, “But herein mean I to enrich my pain,/to have his sight thither and back again” (1.1.250-251). Helena is saying that she wants to see Demetrius when he comes back after he continuously mistreats her. This shows that she is completely foolish and lacks
Stand not upon the order of your going, but go at once.” This quote shows how Lady Macbeth is aware of her husband’s downfall, but not knowing her influence on him was the biggest part of
Here Juliet means that when she learned Romeos name it was too late, she has fallen under a spell of love. There are a few negative thoughts about Romeo and Juliet’s forbidden relationship. Friar Lawrence even warns Romeo to be careful about the marriage of him and Juliet “These violent delights have violent ends” (Shakespeare 856). Friar means that this is a marriage between these two families filled with hatred along with this history between them, the happy couple won’t last for long, and surely this will end badly. Romeo is impulsive, not only when he kisses Juliet, but also when he talks to Tybalt “Tybalt, the reason that I have to love the doth much excuse the appertaining rage” (Shakespeare 865).
With this in mind, if a man couldn’t do something a woman can, he was a disgrace; Lady Macbeth is taunting Macbeth with the gender gap, which makes him want to prove he’s more masculine and can keep it together. Even though, Lady Macbeth is viewed as a manipulative character, towards the end, she changes and shows signs of remorse/regret, which is not like her character. Lady Macbeth begins to feel remorseful because she has made an outright killing machine out of Macbeth. Lady Macbeth starts to ask herself “The thane of Fife had a wife. Where is she now?
He hated me so much but, then I found out that Raleigh cheated on Queen Elizabeth. Also had an affair with one of Elizabeth’s maids. Then after that some of my servants told me that Raleigh was plotting to kill me again and almost succeeded. Raleigh was committed for treason because he was trying to
