The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, Tybalt is responsible for his own death because he has a history of killing, he has an attitude that instigates on problems, and he has grudges against Romeo.

In this quote, Romeo is wailing that a great person was just killed by Tybalt.
First of all, she is not a superior character at the start. She also does not really have a tragic flaw, her bad qualities only make her seem annoying and selfish, but do not heavily affect others. Her tragic end also does not occur as a result of her fate. She forces her own glorified end with the attention seeking action of taking her own life. As Katherine Callen King says, “...Antigone as she is lead to her death in punishment for disobeying her uncle’s order”.(Katherine King, The Women’s Review of Books), anything that happened to herself was by her own doing.

While Iago has resentment to othello for not promoting him othello cannot see him as untrustworthy, Because of this othello never questioned him. Iago is good at manipulating people to do his bidding even if they don’t reason this. An example is when Cassio followed Iago advice and petition Desdemona to get othello to forgive Cassio for his mistake. Iago uses that to make Othello wrongfully read this event as deception– Ha!
In the tragic play Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, Mercutio and Tybalt have an argument which leads up to a fight to the death but they both end up dying. Even though some may believe it’s Mercutio’s fault for the deaths, I believe that it’s Tybalt’s fault for both of the deaths.

A play of such sophistication takes thought and intelligence to be put together in such a way to draw attention. It takes sanity to have a goal and be determined to achieve it. Hamlet later gets into an argument with Rosencrantz and Guildenstern due to suspicion. Hamlet is infuriated at the betrayal he claims “‘sblood do you think I am easier to be played on than a pipe? Call me what instrument you will, though you (-- removed HTML --) fret me, you cannot play upon me”(III.ii.399-404).
After an injured Hamlet wounds Laertes with the poisoned foil, Laertes laments that he is “justly killed” by his own “treachery.” (5.2.337). In blaming himself for his downfall, Laertes declares the justice of his death. Laertes possesses only a simple understanding of the immorality of murder because his honor, anger, and a lack of concern for his own damnation drives him to ultimately carry out the act. After Hamlet kills Claudius, Laertes states the justice in the king’s death and says, “mine and my father 's death come not upon thee, / Nor thine on me!”
Introduction King Oedipus is a tragic play written by Sophocles. It reflects several themes in the story, including Fate and Free will (the unavoidable prophecy that cause tragedy in the story); Shame and Guilt (both Oedipus and Jocasta took the easy way out by becoming blind and seeking death; to avoid facing the truth and taking responsibility for their actions); and Finding out the truth (Oedipus determination to find the murder leads to his own destruction).

The id seeks instant pleasure through sexual and aggressive behaviors, paying no heed to societal or moral requirements. Claudius’s id is the driving reason behind his murder of the king and seducement of the queen, as both were impulsive acts that are forbidden by society that he did only for the sake of enjoying the pleasures of a king. The ghost of the former king explains to Hamlet how “The serpent that did sting thy father’s life / Now wears his crown,” meaning that Claudius had killed the king for the sake of gaining his crown (I.V. 38-39). This behavior arose from Claudius’s id because it the aggressive behavior of murdering his brother that allowed him to receive the immediate pleasure of access to his deceased brother’s wife, and in turn, kingship. Claudius’s can also be viewed as the cause for marrying Queen Gertrude, which he did by “[winning] to his shameful /

Shakespeare’s Othello, an early 17th century play, is a widely renowned work that is still studied in a psychological aspect worldwide today. The eponym of the play had ambivalent feelings for Desdemona, his wife, that were prevalent in the sense that he’d gone to extreme lengths, such as; abusing her, mistreating her, and ultimately murdering her.
