Lastly, Iago hurts Cassio for the last time, possibly hitting the final blow by telling his audience of Cassio’s oaths and inappropriate language. Iago then stops harming Cassio and tells, “More of this matter cannot I report.” in order to keep his motif of trust. To keep his true intentions discrete he blames all of this behaviour on a man’s fatal flaw. “But men are men; the best sometimes forget. As men in rage strike those that wish them best (128).” Iago phrases his sentence in a way such that his audience does not forgive Cassio for his actions and learn to value Iago’s words as more wise and unbiased given that Iago essentially spoke in a way that seemed
“Think: all men make mistakes, but a good man yields when he knows his course is wrong, and repaired the evil”(5.77). Creon doesn’t realize his misguided course until his moment of absolute disparity. People realizing their course is wearing long after they have made a faulty trek unfolds in many occurrences. For instance, in Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, The Capulets and Montagues don't realize the effect of their battles until their precious heirs take
If we compare Death of a Salesman with what Aristotle's definition of a tragic hero, Willy Loman classifies as a tragic hero. His biggest downfall is the loose grasp of reality. He has all his “perfected dreams”and tries so hard to get away from the surroundings around him. Instead of being satisfied with the reality of his life, he continues to chase all of this fantasies. At this point he gets so happy when he is stuck in his fantasies that he ignores reality and do anything to not go back to facing the current family.
Even tough we see him arguing with himself and feeling disgusted, showing that he is very much humane, and his only fault being way too ambitious. That was interesting because we get the feeling that something out of the ordinary is coming up and our anticipation gets into the story straightaway. At the very end, in the beginning of Macbeth’s downfall we didn 't expect that a murderer like him would, even in defeat, display conscience and bravery. "I will not yield to kiss the ground before young Malcolm 's feet,... And damn 'd be him that first cries 'Hold, enough! '" (Line 32-39, Pg 249).
The Greek playwright Sophocles brilliantly provided an answer to these moral mysteries in his work, Antigone: “Think: all men make mistakes,/ But a good man yields when he/ Knows his course is wrong,/ And repairs the evil: The only/ Crime is pride” (Sophocles). Understanding what Sophocles is trying to explain in this passage isn’t extremely difficult to decipher. We as humans are all bound to make mistakes. There is no other way about it. But when a good person recognises that they have made a mistake, or have done wrong, they fix
Creon’s first act as the new ruler ordered that no one shall give Polynices a proper burial, since he fought against Thebes. Once Antigone, Creon’s niece and Oedipus’s daughter, was caught sprinkling dust and wine over his body, she was detained immediately. Creon then sentenced her to imprisonment in a tomb as punishment for her actions. His decisions led to catastrophe as the choragus explains throughout the play. His fate and disastrous downfall were caused by disobeying the gods, mainly through his tragic flaw of pride and cruelty.
Romeo and Juliet make hormonal and impulsive decisions that show their immaturity. After Tybalt kills Mercutio, Romeo cannot control his emotions and feels the need for revenge. He says, “Alive in triumph, and Mercutio slain! Away to heaven, respective lenity, and fire-eyed fury be my conduct now”(3.1.127-129). Part of being mature is the ability to control strong emotions, and here Romeo tells us that he is letting his fury guide his actions.
Creon had his chance at a 'Happily Ever After ' if he could only control his obstinacy. Of course, the king 's pride clouds his judgment and leads to his utter downfall and cataclysmic realization of his faults. Through his story, it is evident that Creon is the tragic hero of the story Antigone because he exhibits
Romeo avenges Mercutio’s death by killing Tybalt, which led to Romeo being exiled to Mantua. Romeo’s banishment created a flawed plan, nevertheless Mercutio was the root of Romeo’s banishment. It might seem that Friar Laurence was most responsible for Romeo and Juliet’s death. It’s true that Friar Laurence was the one who secretly married Juliet to Romeo resulting in Juliet having to take a potion that put her to sleep for 48 hours in order to avoid marriage to Paris. Nevertheless, Mercutio compelled Romeo to be a guest at the Capulet’s party where he met Juliet and their risky relationship started.
The sixth commandment states that “You shall not murder”(Exodus.) In act 5 scene 2 of Othello there are an abundance of murders.

Iago kills Emilia once she realized how Iago manipulated her.
