In Romeo and Juliet, there are many complex characters that make this play more dramatic and interesting. Romeo is clearly one example of a complex character, where his romanticism blurs his sense of reality. An example of where this is seen during the play is when he falls for Juliet even though he declares that there is no one better than the woman he previously loved, Rosaline. Another example is when Romeo realizes that because of how he has lost his sense of reality, he has let his friend Mercutio die to one of their enemies: Tybalt. These two instances show how complex a character Romeo is and this shows how people in the real world can be similar to him by being complex and difficult to understand.
Throughout the story the audience views how impacting the character Iago is to Othello and his total interpretation of every single aspect around him which leaves readers with nothing but an ache in their chest filled with sorrow and longing.

This reaches a climax when he comes home intoxicated which shows that he expressed his true feelings towards Catherine, “He reaches out suddenly, draws her to him, and as she strives to free herself he kisses her on the mouth.” From the stage directions we can see that Catherine strives to be free which can be argued that she is fighting due to unwanted admiration. This scene was extremely uncomfortable for the audience to view due to realization of Eddie being her uncle. Despite many warnings from Beatrice and Alfieri, Eddie’s blindness is shown as he ignores their concerns. This was considered as a huge turning point in the play, as the action moves towards catastrophe, as his relationship with Catherine plunges from happiness to misery and culminates in his unnecessary
A good example is the conduct that he exhibits when he visits Ophelia in her chambers, and scares her with his irrational behavior: “O help him, you sweet Heavens”/[…] O heavenly powers, restore him”(3.1.122-24). Many more instances occur in his interaction with his childhood friends Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, also with Polonius, Ophelia’s father, and the King and Queen, so as to convince them of his madness. Quite paradoxically, Hamlet’s mind dissociates from the world around him, and by the end of the play his “sovereignty of reason” (1.4.73) betrays him, transforming Hamlet into an irrational man, whose behavior becomes dangerous. He acts impulsively, without comprehending the full extent of his actions.. A clear example of such conduct is when he stabs Polonius to death, thinking he is Claudius.
Although, the effect of those memories may not be to the same extreme extent as on Hamlet, purpose relies strongly on memory. In the play, Hamlet stated, “Purpose is but a slave to memory” (3.2.176). Memory drives action, which is seen in the play how the memory of Hamlet’s father and, addition to the lack of memory of the other characters, guide Hamlet’s journey into madness. Not only does the word slave enforce the idea of being under the domain of something (OED), but it also indicates a lack of control. And this may relate to why Hamlet professed his madness as the sperate entity, because he lacks the control over it.

Throughout the play Macbeth, William Shakespeare uses diction to convey a change in not only his characters, but their environments and other character’s points of view. The varying uses of honor allow Shakespeare to introduce motifs about Macbeth’s changing character throughout the play. At the start of the play, Macbeth is an innocent thane, yet by the end, he is a merciless king who becomes obsessed with his possible power. The honor represents his valiancy at first even though by the end, honor becomes worthless because Macbeth has abused it and has lost any trust from his people. At the onset of the play, Macbeth enjoys the honor of being a thane and understands that it is a unique position because there are a limited amount of them.
The Power of Manipulation Michael Ende once stated, “When it comes to comes to controlling human beings there is no better instrument than lies. Because, you see, humans live by beliefs. And beliefs can be manipulated. The power to manipulate beliefs is the only thing that counts.”

In William Shakespeare’s Othello, jealousy is a major, plot-advancing mechanism, as well as one of the most prominent themes. As planted by Iago in Act III, Othello’s own doubts and jealous tendencies cause his demise. Shakespeare utilizes ambiguity, adoring tones, and the power of suggestion to develop the young hero’s unfortunate hamartia. In doing so, it is proven that sometimes naivety and too much faith in an unvalidated source of information can cause deadly miscommunication. Act III Scene III of Othello is dripping with ambiguity, specifically in the answers and suggestions of Iago as he discusses the faithfulness of Desdemona with Othello.
