Othello is presented as a respectful and honorable prince loved by all, but unexpectedly he grows an enemy, Iago. Iago vows to get vengeance on Othello because Othello made Cassio his lieutenant instead of Iago. Iago then takes control of fate in the play as he diabolically invents a plan to manipulate Othello into believing that Desdeomona was having an affair with Cassio. Furthermore, Othello’s tragic flaw was that he was gullible, therefore eventhough Othello was infatuated with Desdemona he chose to believe in Iago’s lies about Desdemona’s “affair”. For example, throughout the entire play, Othello committed irrational actions voluntarily because he was overtaken by jealousy that Iago developed with lies.

In this play, Desdemona is loyal to her trusty companion, Othello. However, Iago has a devilish scheme to paint the image of cheat in Othello’s mind. Iago was disgruntled that he was passed over for a promotion and Cassio, “As masterly as he: mere prattle, without practice” (1.1.27) was given a more substantial rank. He wanted Cassio dead and he thought that the way to do this was to have Othello kill him. During this time, when Othello spots Desdemona with Cassio, Othello takes it out on her, thinking that she didn’t really love him.

Viewing this as an attack upon himself, Macbeth responds by carrying out the treasonous act, slaying the benevolent king in a grotesque fashion. Macbeth’s ostensible ambition is merely an excuse to masquerade his innate egotistical psyche; moreover, his ego is contested by Lady Macbeth’s malicious remarks which ultimately obliterates his self-confidence as he is perplexed by the fact that his own wife had disparaged him. The vitiation of Macbeth’s self-confidence propels him to slay Duncan in a desperate attempt to fortify his broken ego- in an act of self-defence, Macbeth fails to comprehend the consequences of his treasonous act in the moment, but immediately comes to realization after the act; this in turn plagues his psyche with anxiety and guilt. It is at this point that Macbeth begins to add coal to the burning fire, subtly destroying

Macbeth's lust for power becomes blatantly obvious based upon his fears that "to be thus is nothing, but to be safely thus", prompting him to kill Banquo and make an attempt at his son, Fleance. To relieve himself of his insecurities, he manipulates two murderers to believe than Banquo is their "enemy" and the source of all of their problems, displaying his twisted nature. He does not, before the act is already committed, share news of the "deed of dreadful note" with his "dearest chuck", Lady Macbeth, proving he has made his face a "vizard to [his] heart" not only for the public, but also to his once-cohort. Macbeth's peers' opinion sinks so low that he is often merely referred to as a "tyrant" rather than by his name. He is not only a traitorous and cruel king, but the extent to which he is "unfit to govern" makes him "unfit to live" - deserving of death for how he has let down Scotland.
That, then, created Hamlet’s obsession. With Hamlet full of envy and rage, his mind is no longer normal. “...the envious man finds himself in an unfortunate position; for all his blows fall powerless as soon as it is known that they come from him. Accordingly he hides feelings as
Power razes all of its enemies to the ground, and its enemies are ignorant of its presence.Power negatively affects others by turning someone with power on their allies, making the owner paranoid, and diminishing common sense.In Antigone, King Creon turned on his own niece in order to preserve his self-serving law. Power turns the holder onto their allies. Creon created fear in the hearts of his own sentries who selflessly worked hours keeping him safe. After gambling for the right to deliver the news, a lone sentry brazenly travels to tell Creon the news and after being berated says, “you have seen the last of me here…” and briskly walks off (scene I lines 160-163). Creon has disrupted the feeling of trust by misplacing fear in the hearts of the sentry because he wanted his edict to be all-powerful.
