In an increased effort to seek revenge, Iago uses help from Roderigo’s desire to be with Desdemona, Cassio’s good looks, and Othello’s own open and free nature to ruin Othello’s own life. Othello is a unique, one of a kind character who changes throughout the story in how he talks and what 's he says, his appearance, his actions, and his interactions with characters. 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. Othello is immediately introduced as a confident, humble man as general of the venetian army and his marrying of a white woman. Evidence of this is when in Brabantio confronts Othello about marrying Desdemona.
Nevermind the fact that Fortunato remains unaware of the wrong that he has thusly committed. Perception is reality: In his reality, the injury that he has been unfairly dealt, can only be righted with vengeance. Montresor considers himself to be the long suffering innocent party who has suffered “the thousand injuries” (Poe 14), of Fortunato. The matter then, is not only to get revenge, but to right they wrongs committed against him. Montresor is a well-layered character, filled with an unbridled hatred that drives his need for revenge.
Feeling overlooked and dissatisfied to Othello promoting Cassio instead of him, Iago starts to plot his revenge. However, it is confusing that Iago continues his revenge and tries to destroy Othello so thoroughly even after he is promoted. Meanwhile, he has nothing to gain from the whole process. What motivates Iago to do such things? In my opinion, it is Iago’s hatred towards Othello that strongly motivate him, and this hatred comes from a variety of causes.
A final example of Oedipus’s short temper is when he argues with Creon about being the killer of Laius. The argument heats up and Oedipus loses his temper and threatens to banish or kill Creon. Creon goes to Jocasta and states, “Sister, Oedipus your husband, thinks he has the right to do terrible wrongs-he has but to choose between two terrors: banishing or killing me” (Sophocles 448). Again, Oedipus must defeat those who seem to be against him even though they are not his enemy. It is his anger that causes Oedipus to lash out and act
Hamlet’s truly embodies the concept of the appeal of immediate gratification in that during the final scene of fighting, he commits actions that he may not have had he not been so immensely affected by his emotions, particularly the sting of anger. The irrationality of humans is driven by emotion, but the majority of the reasons for why these irrational actions seem justifiable is because of our impulsiveness in the heat of the moment that we experience. We become impassioned and commit actions that in rationality, make no sense. It is only when we are aware of our tendencies and feelings, that we can divert the path to irrationality and allow rational thought and decision to
Due to his involvement in the feud, this contributes to his death later on in the play. Tybalt is splenetic and hateful towards the Montagues which helps highlight his foil, Benvolio. During the play, Benvolio is the do-gooder who will always tell the truth, even if it hurts his friends, which are shown when Benvolio declares, “O noble prince, I can discover all / The unlucky manage of this fatal brawl. / There lies the man, slain by young Romeo, / That slew thy kinsman, brave Mercutio.” (3.1.105-108). In contrast, Tybalt is shown with very deep-rooted loyalties during the Capulet Ball when he attempts to kick Romeo out of the ball for only being there.
He transferred those strong feelings to his sword, causing Tybalt to face the same fate as Mercutio. Romeo proves through his actions that his feelings are everywhere and causing him to be very impetuous. Without giving himself much time to process what has happened, he quickly ran and performed an act that he later regretted. The slaying of Tybalt caused him to be banished from Verona, adding to the plot of his
"My thoughts be bloody, or be nothing worth!" (IV.iv.9.56). Hamlet is impressed by the forcefulness of characters like Fortinbras and Laertes, who turn thought into action quickly (Phillips). Laertes, who, like Hamlet, has a father to avenge, does not hesitate for a moment when seeking vengeance on his father 's murderer. As Hamlet decides to strive for this personal quality, he begins to act increasingly existential and
Iago 's hatred comes from Othello chosing Cassio as the lieutenant when he had no experience in war through Igao’s perspective. He believed he should have been chosen instead of Cassio for the job. He schemes to destroy Othello and uses his race to feed his hatred capturing Iago 's hostility that doesn 't come from the race, but turns into it as his anger begins to control him.
Shakespeare is famous for his portrayal of the human condition at its rawest, most intimate levels, and it is in this same vein that Hamlet demands the reader to consider a highly intuitive abstraction: madness. What is madness? Countless men and women have attempted to pinpoint it, often to the detriment of those both truthfully and falsely labelled under that unfortunate tag. In the debate over what truly constitutes “madness” in Hamlet, particularly as it relates to the mental state of Shakespeare’s eponymous lead, it is very important to take into account both sides of this debate, to comprehend the possible lapses of judgement and wit in Hamlet’s character which could be seen as indicative of a slipping mind: erraticism, incoherent speech,
His condition was so serious that he was basically depressed at the place where he should have been happiest. It is very ironic because while at the Front, all the men were discussing on what they are planning to do once the get home, but reality is nothing will ever be the same, wherever they go. Paul was the first to exhibit that loss of hope. I agree with the main thesis of this book that war is uncalled for, it is just a game that ruins innocent lives of the young population while the nations that they are fighting for are using them as toys, all just politics. The main thesis of this book is so easily shut down, but all it is is the truth, unfortunately wars are gruesome, gory, and
Antwone suffers from displacement and repression, and he also deny a lot about his pass experiences. With that being said, my treatment recommendation for Antwone is the psychoanalytic theory. Antwone denies and bottles up all the anger that he has from his pass without realizing that it is causing him more harm. He refused to talk about these issues because he thought that he does not have an issues. With all the anger bottled up, he tends to displace them by lashing out on his co-workers.
