However, Iago is not the only one that is to take all the blame. Othello’s naive nature hindered him from seeking the truth of Desdemona and Cassio and finding out Iago had been lying the whole time. Iago may have been the cause of rumors, however Othello’s own doing ultimately caused him to suffer the consequences due to the fact that he did not communicate with his wife. He let a envious person control every aspect of his perception of his wife. He let a piece of fabric be the defining factor of whether or not his wife was faithful to him.
In the play, he is a military general with no hope for the throne other than what the Weird Sisters acknowledge as his fate. “All hail, Macbeth, thou shalt be king hereafter!” ( Shakespeare 1.3.53). They say he will be king, but do not say how. However, the Macbeth of Scottish history was a recognized Duke for Duncan I with a legitimate claim to the throne through his mother’s bloodline. He did kill Duncan, but only as a result of forming an alliance with his cousin the Earl of Orkney, and defeating Duncan in 1040; not by stabbing the man in his sleep.
Contrary to belief though, this quote was a way to set his “mousetrap” and force her to be in the background of his grand scheme. The audience must draw conclusions concerning their relationship because their love is not the main focus of the play and Hamlet acting insane is an inconvenience because it is hard to decipher what was sincere or madness. Shakespeare does not seem to have a high opinion of women, while writing Hamlet, considering how Hamlet holds deep bitterness toward his mother and Ophelia for not having a backbone and allowing themselves to be pawns in the game Claudius and he are playing. Saying this, Hamlet’s behavior towards Ophelia is crude, rough, and full of anger. Despite Hamlet’s harsh treatment towards Ophelia, he really did love her, but because she was not his main focus, the
In the play Macbeth, by Shakespeare, a frightful prophecy is delivered to Macbeth and his comrade in arms Banqo, which threatens the future of Macbeth’s kingship. Three witches tell both that while Macbeth will become king, it is Banqo’s children who will ascend to the throne, not Macbeth’s. Macbeth fears not only this terrible prophecy but Banqo’s skillful ability to weather any storm unscathed. He also realizes the terrible decision to kill Duncan, which will not help him, but will help Banqo. Macbeth deeply regrets his murder of Duncan because he realizes that Banqos stratagem is so superior that he will have to make no sacrifices to ensure his son’s kingship, while Macbeth had to endure so much pain only to gain an unfruitful kingship.
If we believe it to be a sincere effort then we can truly believe that the shrew has been tamed which is sad because it has led to the death of Katharina’s personality. A second way to the understanding of speech is farce which is linked to the initial induction in the play which shows that the play in a farce and nothing happening is to be taken in a serious sense. It could be satirical where katharina realizes that it is in her best interest to budge according to petruchios demands for her own well being and she gives that speech just to re affirm her false sincerity to her husband. Since the language of the speech is highly exaggerated, I tend to believe it as
Once again, Macbeth is born into nobility just as Beowulf and Sir Gaiwan. The witches specifically state upon meeting Macbeth that, “All hail Macbeth, Thane of Glamis; All hail Macbeth, Thane of Cawdor; All hail Macbeth, that shalt be king hereafter” (347). Readers see that he is already of nobility, as he is the Thane of Glamis but are predisposed to the future of his rising status. Macbeth, although praised for his challenging tasks and accomplishments, falls to the wayside after learning of the witches prophecies. Macbeth at first believes that, “If chance will have me king, why, chance may crown me without my stir(349) but in actuality by thinking this, it means that he has thought of murdering Duncan before hand to gain the crown.
Our fears in Banquo/ Stick deep and his royalty of nature/...when first they put the name of king upon me/ And bode them speak to him/ Then, prophet like. / They hailed him father to a line of kings. /Only for them; and mine eternal jewel/ Given to the common enemy of noon, /To make them rings, the seeds of Banquo king!/ Rather than so, come fate in the list” (III.I.50-73). Since then, Macbeth knows Banquo’s prophecies while they become a threat to Macbeth. At the beginning of the play Banquo is given the prophecies that his children will be the king, therefore, this becomes a threat toward Macbeth.
But the different thing between two of them is that Scar asks for a mercy before he is murdered, while Macbeth faces with the death without bending his head down. Malcolm from 'Macbeth ' is another one who has the same outstanding characteristic as Simba in 'The Lion King '. Because of being a son of the king, they are appointed to replace their father 's position and be a king in the future. Later, both Malcolm and Simba also have to flee from hometown after the death of their father. Furthermore, they return to the birthland to revenge the traitor, although both of them do not kill him with their hands.
From Macbeth’s coronation at Scone to the final scene of the tragedy, the crown is in the hands of an unrightful owner. When Banquo tells Macbeth that Duncan “might yet enkindle [Macbeth] unto the crown,” (1.3.120), the audience sees the first signs of the crown changing owners. Macbeth presently gets the crown, but because he has won the crown through a regicide, he cannot enjoy the power he has received. He admits that “to be thus is nothing, / but to be safely thus” (3.1.49-50), stating that it is nothing to have the title of king unless he is a worthy king. This use of dramatic irony shows that though the crown should show authority, when Macbeth wears the crown it displays deception.
Like above, Juliet is clearly unsatisfied by the undertakings of her parents, as a result of the feud. Although, this time she sees the fear in defying her fate, but disregarded it. “That is renowned for faith? Be fickle, Fortune.” (3.5.62). She then calls fortune, the undertakings of the feud, fickle and vows to oppose it.
