(3.3)”.

Jealousy is the theme in his play Othello, it causes conflicts from marriage problems to as severe as death. 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.
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). This quote only further emphasizes the fact that Macbeth’s name has turned from one of bravery, as shown by the Sergent (I. ii), to one of disgrace and has been condemned.
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. After the Macbeth kills Duncan, he has committed his first real murder.
This shows that Tybalt had killed Mercutio because Mercutio hung with Romeo and hated Montagues. This lead to the death of Mercutio. 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.
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.
The Monster’s quest for revenge shows the controlling aspects of anger. 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
Thus with a kiss I die” (V.III.119-120). 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.
The moodiness of [his] usual temper increased to hatred of all things and of all mankind,”. 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.
