“Never lie to someone who trusts you. Never trust someone who lies to you.” -Anonymous. In the play Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare lies and deceit will be shown very well, especially by Don John and Don Pedro, when Don Pedro and Don John deceive and lie to many. Both for different reasons and both have different effects. Don John lies and deceived many, because his brother, Don Pedro, the prince, is happy and Don John is a sad man with no happiness except for making others around him miserable.
We know that this is not the first time he has used these descriptive phrases; for Rosaline, he claimed the same, and yet Juliet is ignorant of his fickle affections and charmed by his eloquently-phrased declarations. Then, when events take a tragic turn and she finds Romeo, dead of his own tragic flaw, passionate impetuousness, Juliet indulges in this mistake herself and commits suicide. Once again, she thinks only of her “need” to be with him and not of the effects on the others who closely share her life. She is blinded by her single-minded love for this fickle boy who loved another only hours before. In this respect, romantic love can never
It is a striking event how he treats his alleged favourite daughter and how easily he believes the lies he is being fed. Despite this, his quote holds a certain truth to it. As Lear has sinned against Cordelia, his other two daughters have sinned against him. He is right in his words for the reason that, although he was unjust and treated Cordelia disrespectfully, he did it because he felt betrayed. His view on showing love is expressing it through words, so when Cordelia fails in her declaration of love, Lear sees this fail as a lack of love and ungratefulness, especially when he decides to give the entire kingdom to his daughters.
Sergius and Raina become comic figures as the insincerity of their romantic love and their romantic attitude is exposed. Raina and Sergius come down to the level of Louka and Bluntschli. The dramatist has succeeded in his comic intention. He shows that war is not heroic but something horrible and brutal because soldiers are not heroes but fools and cowards who fight only because they are compaled to fight. Sergius's heroic victory appears in a comic light when it is discovered that he could win only because the Serbian gunmen had the wrong ammunition with them.

A Lack of Fate People are responsible for the events that take place in their lives; making fate a scapegoat created by those who find the repercussions are less than favorable. This can be seen in the many lives of the characters of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, an initial comedy turned tragedy. Set in fair Verona, a conflicted prince must counterbalance quarrels between the two wealthiest families; the Montagues and the Capulets. The children of the two houses, Romeo and Juliet, live their lives apart from one another, meeting when Romeo encounters Juliet at the Capulet ball, and are instantly smitten with each other and are engaged in a matter of a few hours. Their marriage ends in disastrous suicides when all of their other plans fail, but this brings together the feuding houses, all of which said to have been the work of fate.
Confidence and Othello’s Destruction Society often perceives confidence as a positive trait. However, in Othello, Shakespeare examines the theme of confidence in Desdemona and Othello’s characters and how their varying levels of confidence cause their downfalls. Through the results of the tragedy, Othello demonstrates that having an excess of confidence, whether based on truths or lies, can be dangerous. Desdemona is confident that she can persuade Othello on Cassio’s behalf, and her persistence is one aspect that leads to her death. After Cassio gets into a fight and Othello strips him of his title, Iago suggests that he goes to Desdemona to win back Othello’s favor.

Demetrius and Lysander were also confused because they knew it wasn’t a joke, and they truly loved her (Shakespeare 3.2 125-355). This is an example of dramatic irony because the audience knew something the characters didn’t. The readers knew a love potion was put into both Lysander and
Shakespeare’s famous play, Much Ado About Nothing, encompasses a complex web of events that amuses the audience through misconceptions and quick wit. All the characters are involved in schemes that cause their companions to run in circles of confusion and doubt. Even Benedick, the most rational character in the piece, is dragged into multiple schemes and manipulated into undertaking foolish activities. The first scheme, leading him to fall in love with Beatrice, changed his perspective on the value of love and friendship and caused his to redefine his priorities. In the beginning of the play, Benedick, enjoying the life of a bachelor, swore against marriage.
In the intensity of his wrath, Lear feels that what he is doing is right though in actuality, he fails to see that his ignorance has brought him to powerless position. These actions display Lear's foolishness as he places power into the hands of individuals who express charm and false love through meaningless words. The blind act Lear commits causes the tragic chain of events that follow throughout the play. Essentially, it takes Lear to fall to the utter depths of despair in order to recognize his misjudgements. He plummets during the great storm and exclaims the
