The Odyssey is most like The Count of Monte Cristo because of the prominent and recurring themes of nobility, justice, and virtue. Edmond Dantes, a man driven and utterly changed by his insatiable thirst for revenge, which is his perceived justice, is easily comparable to the noble and great Odysseus, who takes down over a hundred mooching suitors who have tried to woo his wife. Both instances can induce many unanswerable questions, such as: “is this revenge?”. “is revenge the same as justice?”, “at what point does justice become revenge?”, and so forth. Charlotte Brönte’s Jane Eyre poses the same questions.
Am I Insane or Is It Just You? “Blank Space” by Taylor Swift is an influential video that will be embraced by a feminist audience as it depicts a story mocking how Swift as a high maintenance, love crazy, emotional wreck who has one broken relationship after another. In creating a story, the video portrays Tay-lor and her handsome man in an almost fairy tale love story that quickly goes bad as she turns into a jealous, crazy ex-girlfriend who makes him pay for not being what she wanted. Once she is done with him, she rapidly moves on to the next naive prospect. The video supports that wom-en are the ones that control their image and their own perception is all that really matters.
Goffman even suggests that the men’s outcast status adds to their allure. Still, the battle of the sexes rages. In a sad but quaint vestige of bourgeois mores, the women desire and expect sexual exclusivity, while the men show no interest in anything approaching monogamy. The resulting disharmony looms large in the fugitive dynamic, as jealous and rivalrous women wield their knowledge of men’s goings-on to gain romantic advantage, settle old scores, curry favor, and vie for primacy with mothers and sisters. The “father-go-round” of children creates a tangle of personal ties that renders women vulnerable to conflicting pressures from lawless men and the authorities.
Revenge strips men of their morality by causing them to see another person as an object for their torment. In Nathaniel Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter, Roger Chillingworth’s vengeance consumes him and it becomes his life’s goal to torture his adversary. Chillingworth is the worst sinner because he seeks to end Dimmesdale, lies to maintain his sinful scheme, and never admits his wrongdoing. Chillingworth shows no restraint in persecuting Dimmesdale to achieve his ends. When he arrives in the town he finds that a man has committed adultery with his wife, which “[leads] him to imagine a more intimate revenge than any mortal had ever wreaked upon an enemy.” From that moment, Chillingworth swears to exact his retribution.
Logically Jealous Jealousy, at its core, is a compelling and omnipresent feeling that causes people to be vengeful or fearful of being replaced by another person. This emotion is prevalent throughout the tragedy Othello and is the catalyst of a myriad of events in the play. In addition to the drama’s core focus on the vices and follies associated with love, this drama features numerous malicious schemes which center around the marriage between Othello and Desdemona. Iago, Othello’s ensign, successfully utilizes jealousy to manipulate Othello, a highly esteemed general, and Roderigo, a rich Venetian businessman who loves Desdemona hopelessly, via logos. Shortly after the start of the drama, Iago vindictively confides in Othello that he believes
