Iago has jealousy and hatred towards Cassio from the beginning. Iago was not chosen to be lieutenant and Cassio was by the passing down from Othello. Iago has a selfish personality and throughout the story tries to bring down other characters with his jealously. Jealousy is the basis of the story on why things go wrong with Othello and Desdemona. Othello and Desdemona’s relationship takes a turn because of the confits Iago puts upon everyone.
But it is, and honestly it's one of the worst things I would ever wish upon someone. You constantly feel alone, but you don't have to be. These are the things I would tell my daughter should she ever get alopecia. I love you You are beautiful The stares from strangers passing by will become less uncomfortable The little girl or boy who yells, "Mommy, why doesn't that girl have hair?" doesn't know any better The
The Sentry knows that as soon as Creon find out that someone has been burying Polynices that he will be furious. “And all the time a voice kept saying, “You fool, don’t you know you’re walking straight into trouble?”; and then another voice: “Yes, but if you let somebody else get the news to Creon first, it will be even worse than that for you!”” (1,191) All the while he does it because he knows it will be worse if he doesn’t tell Creon. His personality is what keeps him from being beheaded or stoned to
He confidently states Cassio’s offence against Roderigo, the crying man, in efforts to execute him. This initially lowers the reputation of Cassio in the eyes of Othello and his crew, but later on, uses his language of innocence, to act like he is in no way against Cassio. In lines 224-227, Iago claims to have run after the crying man and to be unaware of the possible atrocity that could have happened during then. This leaves his audience under an assumption of any possible situation, whether it be worse or better. Lastly, Iago hurts Cassio for the last time, possibly hitting the final blow by telling his audience of Cassio’s oaths and inappropriate language.
The unjust treatment that the creature received from humankind was harsh and unreasonable as he wasn’t allowed the opportunity to prove his intentions were far from malicious. His loneliness, isolation and injustice from those he tried to befriend turned him into an actual monster, evidently his perspective and personality changed after being excluded. The monster had been treated unfairly by humanity “I desired love and fellowship and I was spurned. Was there no injustice in this? … Am I to be thought the only criminal when all human kind sinned against me?” (Ch.8) and without the acceptance he yearned for, he became bitter and resentful, acting out ruthlessly.
This blemish generated audience pity, subsequently because of his cockiness, Oedipus and his clouded mind, unfortunately caused him to be extremely paranoid. As Oedipus creeps closer to the truth, his madness increases due to the fact that Oedipus cannot admit to himself the evil things he has done. When Tiresias finally reveals the truth to Oedipus, he cannot accept the truth. Instead Oedipus chooses to believe that Tiresias’ words are some elaborate plot to over throw him, “Are these inventions Creon’s work, or yours (page 14, Oedipus Rex)?” Oedipus’ downfall is due to his hamartia pity inducing because the viewer knows that Oedipus is a morally righteous man with a huge ego. Free will is called into the forefront of this play, Oedipus, his fate was foretold long before he was born, seeks to prevent his fate, but he cannot.
Danforth is cold and efficient in his calculated offering of a public confession to Proctor, but Parris offers the audience more insight into his feelings. Take for instance the scene direction that describes Parris screaming at Proctor to sign the paper “hysterically, as though the tearing paper were his life” (75). He knows that he is losing his abusive power over the people, and he is terrified of what the mob’s mentality might be once they were conned by Parris and Danforth into believing a lie. Even the actions of Danforth in putting Proctor into a situation where he has to lose his honor and live or die is an ample evidence of their abuse of
Furthermore, forgetting makes the public accomplices. It does no good for anyone involved in the situation except for the despot. “Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented, Sometimes we must interfere.” (Wiesel 118) By writing this novel Wiesel was taking a stand against the people who caused his so much trauma. He is interfering in his own way, by making sure the public does not allow the past to be
In Paul’s Case, the main character Paul embodies the true characteristics of narcissism. Paul exhibits greed, entitlement and he places himself above all others. Because of Paul’s narcissism, he treated others with disrespect and was often critical of other’s. Paul’s narcissism is so debilitating that he is unable to find satisfaction in anything and that is ultimately what drives him to commit suicide. Could it have been that even though Paul presented himself as a superior, important person that people should be envious of, he was actually self-consciousness with a self-esteem as fragile as glass?
However, when these pessimistic people continue with their negative comments it brings us, humans, down, it just demonstrates how they wish to get everyone else to believe the worst will happen, which just ruins the lives.
