The word deceive is very significant in the play Othello by William Shakespeare. According to the Oxford English Dictionary deceive means, “to ensnare; to take unawares by craft or guile; to overcome, overreach, or get the better of by trickery; to beguile or betray into mischief or sin; to mislead”. The first way the word deceive is used in the play is by characters believing and exploiting the worst in Desdemona. She deceived her father when she married Othello but the other characters use that fact to try and convince Othello she is not as she appears to be. Iago is actually the true character that deceives everyone in the play.
Iago was really trying to convince othello that Cassio is not and honest and that he is sleeping with Desdemona.this characterizes Iago as a deceitful person who tricks people into believing what is not true. In Iago’s second attempt to convince Othello, he tries to convince him by appealing to his logos by saying “she did deceive her father, marrying you; and when she seemed to shake and fear your looks, she loved them most” (III,iii,233-235). This is another way by which Iago is trying to tell Othello about his wife. He is trying to put doubt into the moors mind. This reveals Iago’s deceitful nature when he is placing these doubts into Othello’s head by asking she deceived her father, why not deceive you too?
Emilia knows that Othello believes that Desdemona has cheated on him with Cassio, but the interesting factor is that Emilia knows that is not true as she arguably knows Desdemona the most out of all the characters. Desdemona's isolation prior to her death is “ attributable to the onlookers' nonintervention” (Vanita 343). Emilia was aware of the abuse that Othello put upon Desdemona even though she knew the accusations against her were false “For if she be not honest, chaste and true,/ There’s no man happy; the purest of their wives/ Is foul slander” (Shakespeare 4.2.18-20) but still leaves Desdemona in isolation with Othello, even though she was aware of what he believed. When Othello confronts Desdemona with the claims of cheating Othello commands Emilia to “Leave Procreants alone and shut the door;/ Cough or cry “hem”

Who is to Blame? In William Shakespeare's play Romeo and Juliet Friar Lawrence is to blame for the two lovers deaths for numerous reasons. One of the reasons he is to blame for the lovers death is because he gave Juliet the vial. Another reason he is to blame for the deaths is because he didn't make sure Romeo got the letter explaining what Juliet’s plan was. The last reason to blame Friar Lawrence is because he married the two in secrecy.
(2.1.298-300) In the Oxford English Dictionary, the term ‘jealousy’ can be expressed in a variety of meanings. One of the meanings is that ‘jealousy’ is a ‘state of mind that arises from suspicion, or the knowledge of rivalry.’ This definition pertains to Iago because he strongly believes that Othello is sleeping with his wife, hence why he wants to treat Othello as an enemy. Although, Othello did not have sex with Emilia, Iago’s wife, Iago still twists reality to make it his own.
Romeo and Juliet, is a love story that was interfered by hate. The Capulets and Montagues were bitter enemies. However, the son and daughter from the patriarchies of both families did not hate each other, but instead fell in love. They decided to keep their love a secret because Juliet would be disowned if she didn’t marry a handpicked man from Lord Capulet. The rivalry and disgust between the two families was responsible for the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet because it made them lie.
All these eight years-she who was my joy and pride- a hypocrite, a liar- worse, worse- a criminal!” (Ibsen). Although Torvald is right about Nora lying, he seems to have forgotten what Nora has done to try and protect his reputation and his pride. That indeed her behavior is quite twisted, she still acted in somewhat of a selfless way to protect her pompous husband. Torvald goes further and tells Nora: “You will still remain in my house, that is a matter of course.
Juliet only briefly thinks of the difficulty of the two families coming together, but is then drawn back to Romeo’s convincing suggestion. This situation is one of the fatal mistakes that leads to the death of Romeo, Juliet, and many others. In another instance, Tybalt engaged in a fight with Mercutio, Romeo’s best friend, resulting in Mercutio’s death. Mercutio stepped in to take Romeo’s place unaware of the fact that Romeo was now part of the Capulet family and therefore unwilling to fight Tybalt, Juliet’s cousin. When Mercutio died, instead of thinking about what the consequences might be, Romeo slayed Tybalt instantly.
Friar Laurence had a vital part in this ill timed death. On scene he was questioned by the Prince and authorities where he gave his full story. He stated the two had fallen in love at the Capulet ball, they approached him in secret and beseeched for him to marry them. He did as so, he remarked that he truly thought he could arbitrate the families acrimony

Aylmer’s views on perfection led to the demise of Georgiana. He skewed Georgiana’s views by making it seem that if she wasn’t perfect then he could not love her. Throughout the process Georgiana was scared of her husband’s actions but she was made to believe that what he was doing was normal so she went along with it.
Although Othello has risen to power in a society where he is an outsider, he still believes he may be inferior because of it. His inability to disprove this belief in his marriage leads to his tragic downfall. After Shakespeare has first introduced the audience to the newlyweds, he immediately sends them off to challenges at Cyprus. Along with their own physical differences, they now lack the time to find a common ground of interests. This is the first crack in the foundation of Othello and Desdemona’s love.
