The role of Iago’s wife can’t be an easy one, and he is usually too concerned with revenge to pay much attention to her. He’s arguably one of the cruelest Shakespearean villains, and Emalia is just trying to survive unscathed.

Something like fear sharpened and hardened his features.” Douglas Stone also displays a sense of regret when he comes to realize that he had cut out Lady Sannox’s lower lip due to his blind arrogance.

The readers can sense that Havisham is extremely justified in her feelings and she blames her ex-fiance entirely for this. Her lover was the one who made her who she is now; she is isolated, angry, and even mad. Ever since the day of their scheduled marriage, Havisham believes that love is like a “red balloon” bursting - love does not last forever. Love is fragile. Love is nothing but an illusion.
