While Montresor pretends to be a good friend to Fortunato, it is strange that Fortunato does not realize the problems between them. In order to be believable for readers, the insults must be very painful for Montresor, so it urges him to commit such a crime. “The Cask of Amontillado” is missing an important element of Montresor’s motivation to punish Fortunato by burying him alive. Montresor neglects to explain how Fortunato insults him as the story lays the foundation at the opening paragraph, “The thousand injuries of Fortunato I had borne as I best could, but when he ventured upon insult I vowed revenge.” (Poe 866); however, no evidence to be found in the story to support Montresor’s claim. No one would not know what Fortunato did to Montresor and should the insults lead to
Through the character of Iago, Shakespeare is able to manufacture a false reputation of honesty and trustworthiness towards Othello, conveying that villainy often arises from jealousy and revenge. In Othello, seeing is believing, and nobody is as successful at toying with the “Appearance versus Reality” theme played out over the course of the novel as Iago. As the chain of command in Othello’s Venetian army began to erode after a fight between Montano and Cassio, Iago pounced on the opportunity to wield power with his boss. After Cassio had been removed from power as Othello’s assistant, Iago served as a voice on Othello’s shoulder, filling Othello’s thoughts with worry as to the intentions of Cassio. Othello, in a fragile and unstable position with a depleted sense of trust said to Iago, “Villain, be sure thou prove my love a whore,
He is so enraged by this traitorous act against not only himself but his beloved wife and son that he is ready to fly off the handle and end the treachery. If this event had occurred before Book XX, Odysseus most likely would have impulsively jumped into action and slaughtered the evildoers. But he doesn’t do this. Instead, he “mutter[s] to himself” (XX, 17). He takes counsel with himself and considers his actions before he prematurely reacts.
Tybalt’s death “You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger” said by Buddha. Referring to Tybalt he does let his anger decide his actions and leads him to bad situations, even though he may not notice it he gets himself killed later on. He does not think things through all the way and makes terrible mistakes but doesn 't care. So Tybalt’s anger punishes him by killing him. In William Shakespeare’s The tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, Tybalt was the cause of his own life because Tybalt has a listening problem, Tybalt has anger issues and Tybalt has grudges.
Once Huck comes to the realization that he is technically committing a crime, his conscience kept saying, “But you knowed he was running for his freedom, and you could a paddled ashore and told somebody” (109). Huck feels nothing but guilt for doing such a thing when in reality, he is just being a good friend. The law forces Huck to question his actions time and time again, to the point where he almost betrays Jim. It poisons people’s brains into believing they are above different races. Although Huck looks down upon Jim, he truly did care about him.
This action not only sobered George up, but it also deflated his self esteem. He would rather be engaged in a fight with Ed because that would show that Ed Handby thinks of George as an equal. But instead, “Three times the young reporter[George] sprang at Ed Handby and each time the bartender, catching him on the shoulder, hurled him back into the bushes”(189). The dismissal of his grotesque came only when Ed Handby left with Belle Carpenter and he began to realize and feel ashamed of what he had done. The most important realization he made was that he was not yet a man, and paradoxically, that realization made him more of a man than he was
Slapstick comedy also brings out Sebastian and Olivia’s identities. “Cesario” placates Feste’s wordplay and desperately avoids fighting with Sir Toby whereas Sebastian jumps in ready to fight two men in the same breath. Similarly, Olivia thinks she needs to help the previously weak “Cesario” and relishes in an attempt to control such a malleable young man. Ironically, she immediately blames the violence on Sir Toby which would align with “Cesario’s” disposition but it is actually Sebastian causing trouble. Speaking of irony, a few lines before meeting Olivia, Sebastian asks “Are all the people mad” (25) before quickly devolving into the very madness he spoke against when he says “If it be thus to dream, still let me sleep!” (60).
