The word deceive is very significant in the play Othello by William Shakespeare. According to the Oxford English Dictionary deceive means, “to ensnare; to take unawares by craft or guile; to overcome, overreach, or get the better of by trickery; to beguile or betray into mischief or sin; to mislead”. The first way the word deceive is used in the play is by characters believing and exploiting the worst in Desdemona. She deceived her father when she married Othello but the other characters use that fact to try and convince Othello she is not as she appears to be. Iago is actually the true character that deceives everyone in the play.
By revealing this- and specifically using the word “gnaw”- Iago offers a deeper understanding of how much the alleged affair bothers him. The readers now understand that Iago’s intentions are to reciprocate the wretched feelings of disgust and pain that he feels himself onto Othello. The ominous and passionate words Iago uses while unveiling his scheme allow the audience to further understand his motivation and plans. Iago’s insightful soliloquy in Act II, scene i reveals his character motivation and plan for revenge through the effective use of foreshadowing
John Proctor was a man who was well-respected and hoped to make better for his wife and his children. John Proctor’s downfall was committing adultery which put him in a place where he hardly couldn’t forgive himself but he wanted forgiveness from his wife. According to Elizabeth, “It come to naught that I should forgive you, if you'll not forgive yourself.”(965). Elizabeth is saying that she will forgive John for what he did but he have to forgive himself before anyone else could forgive him. John Proctor died because he didn’t confess for being a witch and committed adultery so that caused him to be
Emilia knows that Othello believes that Desdemona has cheated on him with Cassio, but the interesting factor is that Emilia knows that is not true as she arguably knows Desdemona the most out of all the characters. Desdemona's isolation prior to her death is “ attributable to the onlookers' nonintervention” (Vanita 343). Emilia was aware of the abuse that Othello put upon Desdemona even though she knew the accusations against her were false “For if she be not honest, chaste and true,/ There’s no man happy; the purest of their wives/ Is foul slander” (Shakespeare 4.2.18-20) but still leaves Desdemona in isolation with Othello, even though she was aware of what he believed. When Othello confronts Desdemona with the claims of cheating Othello commands Emilia to “Leave Procreants alone and shut the door;/ Cough or cry “hem”
Queen Gertrude makes it seem like the king meant nothing to her when she states that, “She disrespects the king by saying that it is common for everyone to die, instead of having an apathetic tone in her voice, as a normal widow would, she causes more conflict between her and Hamlet.This causes conflict because she is acting unconcerned, proving that she has moved on so easily and she proves this by marrying so soon after her husband’s death. Hamlet sees this as an act of betrayal, considering that Gertrude seemed unphased of his father’s death, and she traded a rich pure love for one that is poor and weak. The Ghost tells Hamlet, “ O Hamlet, what a falling off was there! [f]rom me, whose love was that of dignity that it went hand in hand even with vow I made to her in marriage, and to decline [u]pon a wretch whose natural gifts were poor [t]o those of mine.” With this the ghost infuriates Hamlet even more as a result, he feels like his mother is mocking his dead father by going from a person who is rich and superior as him, onto a fool who has nothing to offer to her. Getrude betrays her family because instead of bringing them back into power she marries onto a man who brings nothing to the kingdom, but more
– I have known her sir, I have known her” (110). John Proctor never settles for keeping his opinion or what he thinks is right to himself. He knows telling Danforth that he is guilty for adultery won’t help his cause but it shows his desperation to win the case in order protect his wife, Elizabeth. John Proctor was sick and tired of watching Abigail win with a lie, in this case he spoke the truth knowing his consequences. John states, “Excellency, forgive me, forgive me.
Iago was really trying to convince othello that Cassio is not and honest and that he is sleeping with Desdemona.this characterizes Iago as a deceitful person who tricks people into believing what is not true. In Iago’s second attempt to convince Othello, he tries to convince him by appealing to his logos by saying “she did deceive her father, marrying you; and when she seemed to shake and fear your looks, she loved them most” (III,iii,233-235). This is another way by which Iago is trying to tell Othello about his wife. He is trying to put doubt into the moors mind. This reveals Iago’s deceitful nature when he is placing these doubts into Othello’s head by asking she deceived her father, why not deceive you too?
Romeo and Juliet, is a love story that was interfered by hate. The Capulets and Montagues were bitter enemies. However, the son and daughter from the patriarchies of both families did not hate each other, but instead fell in love. They decided to keep their love a secret because Juliet would be disowned if she didn’t marry a handpicked man from Lord Capulet. The rivalry and disgust between the two families was responsible for the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet because it made them lie.
All these eight years-she who was my joy and pride- a hypocrite, a liar- worse, worse- a criminal!” (Ibsen). Although Torvald is right about Nora lying, he seems to have forgotten what Nora has done to try and protect his reputation and his pride. That indeed her behavior is quite twisted, she still acted in somewhat of a selfless way to protect her pompous husband. Torvald goes further and tells Nora: “You will still remain in my house, that is a matter of course. But I shall not allow you to bring up the children; I dare not trust them to you” (Ibsen).
The fact that Romeo fails to comply with the rule that a Montague and Capulet cannot marry shows his impulsivity. Juliet only briefly thinks of the difficulty of the two families coming together, but is then drawn back to Romeo’s convincing suggestion. This situation is one of the fatal mistakes that leads to the death of Romeo, Juliet, and many others. In another instance, Tybalt engaged in a fight with Mercutio, Romeo’s best friend, resulting in Mercutio’s death. Mercutio stepped in to take Romeo’s place unaware of the fact that Romeo was now part of the Capulet family and therefore unwilling to fight Tybalt, Juliet’s cousin.
I mean it is known that the primitive loathing between the two families would have never allowed for such an act, so did they put this death upon themselves? Friar Laurence had a vital part in this ill timed death. On scene he was questioned by the Prince and authorities where he gave his full story. He stated the two had fallen in love at the Capulet ball, they approached him in secret and beseeched for him to marry them. He did as so, he remarked that he truly thought he could arbitrate the families acrimony
The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet Friar is a liar… A Meddler…and irrational! That began the awful tragedy of Romeo and Juliet. We can say that Friar seems like an intelligent and reasonable man, however, have his actions prove otherwise! Friar is guilty because he married Romeo and Juliet in secret, thinking it would resolve the dispute between the two feuding families. He conjures up a ridiculous plan when Romeo gets banished from Verona to allow Juliet to meet him in secret.
He skewed Georgiana’s views by making it seem that if she wasn’t perfect then he could not love her. Throughout the process Georgiana was scared of her husband’s actions but she was made to believe that what he was doing was normal so she went along with it. Aylmer was an evil human being who did not really care about his wife. He only cared about whether she was the perfect women and that led him into committing the murder of his so called “beloved
