Both texts have the same plot line where Iago or Ben Jago is set out to destroy Othello in vengeance for not getting the title/position that he thought that he deserved. He makes up the same lie where Desdemona is accused of cheating on Othello with Cassio/Michael Cass. In the play, Iago is very persistent when it comes to making Othello suffer by manipulating him and others throughout the whole novel without any empathy. Whereas in the novel Ben Jago does manipulate others but halfway through the film he does realize that maybe things have advanced past what he ever expected them to be.

In Shakespeare’s, “Romeo and Juliet” Friar Laurence is to blame for Romeo and Juliet’s deaths because he is devious and has a poor planning ability. Friar Laurence is to blame because of his devious and secretive nature. First, Friar Laurence agrees to perform a forbidden marriage without Romeo and Juliet’s family’s approval. Friar Laurence states, “In one respect, I’ll thy assistant to be; For this alliance may so happy prove to turn your household’s rancor to pure love” (Shakespeare 1031). This quote displays Friar Laurence’s devious nature because he had agreed to marry Romeo and Juliet, thinking that it would solve the rivalry between the two families even though it was against who he was, his morals, and his religion.
The image of madness which he intends to project would likely have protected him if he had ever gone through with his plans of revenge and killed his uncle. Unfortunately, his unclearness leads to his downfall. Odysseus on the other hand uses physical disguises rather than artificial madness to deceive his enemies and achieve his ends. Odysseus is masked as a mendicant when he first reaches his home: Soon after, Odysseus came in, looking like an
Thinking of the deeds he has done, he reasons that “For them the gracious duncan have I murder'd” (35). His statement is selfish because slaughter is suddenly unjustifiable once it affects others positively, rather than just himself. His role as a king has skewed his perception so much that his friends are his enemies and his murders become aimless. Macbeth’s elation from power is rendered by his worries of losing it, revealing his true self in the process. His concerns stem from jealousy and thoughts of his wrong deeds being exposed, which in turn motivate him to act against his closest friend.

The moment that he sees her brother on the grave he starts attacking and saying that he loves Ophelia.Hamlet himself, in the play by William Shakespeare, seems to be asking himself the same question in his speech about whether it is nobler in the mind "to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune" or to get out there, do something about it and exorcize any crazy ill effects of the injustice by wreaking revenge. Even today many therapists recommend that we do not internalize or
If he like ran away or died when Juliet the play would still be on the same level of dispar.

Frias 4 Some people might think of Shakespeare?s story The Tempest as just that, a story about a man who has his position as Duke of Milan usurped by his less than pleasant brother. However, after a careful analysis of The Tempest, it is easy to see how prominent the mistreatment of Caliban is throughout the story. This analytical essay will attempt to show that Caliban?s character is portrayed as monstrous, and the abuse imposed on him is easily justifiable because The Tempest was influenced by the culture and events that were present at the time that Shakespeare wrote this story. We first hear of Caliban in Prospero?s conversation with Ariel and right off the bat we know that Prospero has a disdain for Caliban when he offhandedly comments
