Some people believe Iago is simply, but purely, evil, doing immoral things merely to be bad” (Hacht, 2007, p, 657). In Shakespeare’s (1610-11/2014) “Othello, the Moor of Venice” we find a variety of clues alluding to “Iago’s sense of self or self-image through his demonstrations of jealousy and revenge emerging from his perceptions of loss of power associated with a missed promotion (pp. 611-655).

With any book, article, propaganda, etc. the hero and villain are always apparent and either praised or criticized with everything they do. Many authors write with this perspective or intent to make the writing more intriguing and to develop the reader’s opinions on how they feel towards the characters.

There are different types of irony that are used in writing, although Ellison primarily uses two kinds: verbal irony and dramatic irony. Verbal irony is when words are used to convey something different than what is being said and dramatic irony describes a situation in which the audience has knowledge that the characters do not. Within the novel, Ellison uses these two types of irony in order to convey the aforementioned complex themes within the book through symbolism and through the narrator's interactions with other people.
I beleive that Thomas Paine would have said that people were inheretly evil. That people were selfish creatures that only strove for their own comfort. This is because he repeatedly mentioned the terrible aspects of people in his writings.

This gives the reader the impression that the darker side appears as a foul excess which Jeckyll wishes to completely get rid of. “Shame” furthers our understanding of this, as it tells us that he is ashamed of having a dark side. This can also mean that Jekyll has mental self-esteem issues, as he criticizes himself over something that is natural and occurs in every human being.
And how dare you even try To tarnish this man’s virtue with a lie”(Tartuffe 3.6.19-20). Tartuffe’s greatest act in the play is shown when he begins to tell Orgon his true demeanor.

Together both Fritz Lang’s silent black and white film ‘Metropolis’ 1927 and George Orwell’s novel ‘Nineteen Eighty-Four’ (*referred to as 1984) 1948, confront and provoke audiences to consider the impact that (abusive power + unquestionable control=insert question statement) can have not only on the characters in these two texts, but also on the cultural and political lives of the reader and viewer.

By slow degrees, these feelings of disgust and annoyance rose into the bitterness of hatred.” (9) This displays the narrator’s inner feelings of hatred towards an innocent and loving animal, which only reinforce the fact that he is deranged. It is revealed to the reader that the narrator has gone from a logical, loving man, to a vile, cruel one with a withered mind and a rotten heart.
