His anger was enough to tear her to peices proving that after Othello is given a little bit of evidence he starts to fall into Iago’s plan, and becomes extremely jealous wanting to kill his own wife. All of Othellos insecurities break loose causing him to start making conclusions for himself. These
Jealousy is the start of Othello and Desdemona’s marriage problems. Although, the start of the jealousy is caused by Iago. He was purely driven by that very green-eyed monster that he talked about. Iago’s goal is Othello’s downfall and for himself to rise to power. In Act 1 Scene 3 lines 360-68 Iago expresses his hatred for Othello by saying, “I hate the Moor, and it is thought
This action negatively impacts him due to the developed hatred the other characters gain towards Macbeth. His ambition has led to not just the death of Duncan and Banquo but also many others such as the Duncan’s chambermaid and Macduff’s family. This slaughter ruins Macbeth’s original image of a brave, valiant, worthy gentleman to the point that others begin to address him as tyrant. Young Siward, when Macbeth told him his name, stated that “The devil himself could not pronounce a title more hateful to mine ear.” (V. vii).
In this play, Desdemona is loyal to her trusty companion, Othello. However, Iago has a devilish scheme to paint the image of cheat in Othello’s mind. Iago was disgruntled that he was passed over for a promotion and Cassio, “As masterly as he: mere prattle, without practice” (1.1.27) was given a more substantial rank. He wanted Cassio dead and he thought that the way to do this was to have Othello kill him. During this time, when Othello spots Desdemona with Cassio, Othello takes it out on her, thinking that she didn’t really love him.
A Guilty Conscience: How Guilt Drives the Powerful to Insanity Guilt is the cause of the destruction of many, particularly in Shakespeare’s Tragedy of Macbeth. As Macbeth and Lady Macbeth continue to murder for the sake of power, they embark on opposite journeys but their guilt ultimately drives them both to insanity. Macbeth goes from being driven mad with guilt, to his instability causing him to murder recklessly. His wife goes from expressing no compassion or guilt to her guilt overcoming her and driving her to madness.
Then leading to banishment of Romeo because he was enraged and killed Tybalt. Readers can connect to this because once in life one has had a love. All because the parents simply hated each other and unknowingly causing their lovely children and unlovely demise. It reminds me of the 1997 film Titanic about a man who offers his fiancé an adventurous life. They board the Titanic only to sink to their deaths.
When a person kills to get what they want is an example of excessive ambition. Ambition is the one of the most important themes in Macbeth. Ambition in moderation is normal, setting goals, working overtime, etc., but tremendous ambition can be destructive. Ambition led Macbeth to kill Duncan and take his throne. It led Macbeth to kill his friend, Banquo, because he was suspicious of him and he feared he would be an obstacle.
Victor’s creation of the Monster causes the monster to want to seek revenge for what Victor has done. This instant hatred against the Monster for being created causes a feeling of overwhelming anger and disgust
Romeo shows great haste in killing himself for one girl, his love, especially because she is not the only girl he has ever loved. He is willing to drink poison and kill himself before even confirming whether Juliet is really dead. As a cause of this decision Romeo and Juliet’s families are both affected, meaning his haste causes harm to more than just himself. Romeo’s haste is exemplified within these two scenes and is therefore safe to conclude that his hastiness proves to be a lethal
Macbeth's lust for power becomes blatantly obvious based upon his fears that "to be thus is nothing, but to be safely thus", prompting him to kill Banquo and make an attempt at his son, Fleance. To relieve himself of his insecurities, he manipulates two murderers to believe than Banquo is their "enemy" and the source of all of their problems, displaying his twisted nature. He does not, before the act is already committed, share news of the "deed of dreadful note" with his "dearest chuck", Lady Macbeth, proving he has made his face a "vizard to [his] heart" not only for the public, but also to his once-cohort. Macbeth's peers' opinion sinks so low that he is often merely referred to as a "tyrant" rather than by his name. He is not only a traitorous and cruel king, but the extent to which he is "unfit to govern" makes him "unfit to live" - deserving of death for how he has let down Scotland.
This illustrates how much of himself the main character has lost. He has gone from being a lovely, docile person to an egregious domestic abuser and murder, as he later murders his wife, demonstrating how far people can go when their conscientiousness is lost. We can all become horrible, murderous people when our mind is altered. It is the nature of humans.
He was so lonely and 2desperate for an companion, he asked Victor to make another monster like him. This is another reason he killed Victor’s loved ones. He did it for revenge. He wanted to get revenge on Victor for denying him his chance of a shot at love. A shot at happiness.
Throughout the course of a person's life, he or she may experience bouts of jealousy. Jealousy can cause one to act irrationally, displaying negative behaviors. Examples of these behaviors are found throughout Shakespeare’s, Othello. Jealousy was first exemplified by Iago. He believed he was deserving of the lieutenant position but was overlooked by Othello who gave the position to Cassio.
Jealousy is inevitable. No doubt about it. Writer Elizabeth Bowen once said, “Jealousy is no more than feeling alone against smiling enemies.” Most people agree with that because you can't control jealousy, especially in situations where it is the first instinct to make. It takes over your other emotions and covers them up, causing paranoia.
Jealousy is an attitude or disposition in which one is apprehensive of losing a position or affection, and becoming resentful or bitter in rivalry. In Rebecca, Daphne du Maurier explores the issue of jealousy through numerous characters and their relationships Three of the main characters who are affected by jealousy are Maxim de Winter, The narrator (The Second Mrs. de Winter), and Mrs. Danvers. Through these characters, Daphne du Maurier creates a study of jealousy and its destructive power in Rebecca. Jealousy has two consequences in Rebecca, it is a destructive force that threatens to destroy both Maxim and the narrator as well as it also blinds characters to the true natures of others. Maxim de Winter, as husband to Rebecca and owner
