William Shakespeare is commonly labeled as a racist, and specifically in Othello, he includes racial themes initially introduced by ignorant characters. Blatantly stated by Iago in Act 1: “Even now, now, very now, an old black ram. Is tupping your white ewe. Arise, arise Awake the snorting citizens with the bell, Or else the devil will make a grandsire of you. Arise, I say” (1.1.97-101).
The guilt is eating him alive. Macduff is a part of Macbeth’s fate as well. From day one, Macduff is suspicious of Macbeth’s climb to the throne. For example, he leads a crusade to take down Macbeth and reclaims the throne to Malcolm. Macbeth’s fate is not just determined by Malcolm reclaiming the throne, but revenge for murdering Macduff’s family.
If thou canst nod, speak too./ If charnel houses and our graves must send/ Those that we bury back, our monuments/ Shall be the maws of kites.” (Shakespeare, Act 3 Scene 4 ). Macbeth’s breakdown can be explained well by J. Lyndon Shanley in this quote from Macbeth: The Tragedy of Evil: “No sooner does he gain what he wanted than he is beset by fears worse than those he overrode in murdering Duncan. His horror of murder is lost in the fear of discovery and revenge, and the fear of losing what he has sacrificed so much to gain.” (Shanley 1) Macbeth is responsible for countless more murders throughout the play, such as Lady Macduff and her son, as well as Young Siward. However, the crimes that Macbeth commits are not the only factor a play in his eventual downfall. How little Macbeth cares about his people and followers are another integral part in his fall from greatness.
Throughout history, societies have succumbed to the toxic concepts of racism, causing an unthinkable amount of chaos and devastation. While racism on its own can lead to many societal evils, racism coupled with jealousy can create a truly catastrophic force that can only lead to pure destruction. When someone of a different race and culture is placed in this kind of society, this destruction will only naturally follow. In the play Othello, William Shakespeare focuses on the tragic outcomes of Othello, a Venetian general and black Turkish Moor, and Desdemona, his white Venetian wife. Throughout the play, both covert and overt racism, assimilation, and jealous dispositions all foreshadow the untimely death of Desdemona and Othello.
The old man offers a more expensive potion that he says in older age a man will come back to. I believe the potion is a metaphor for divorce. A man expects his wife to cater to him, putting her life on hold to care for him. After years, men get tired of this and begin calling women things like crazy, and obsessed. They will do anything to get rid of this woman but for the potion to make her fall in love they would only invest a measly dollar.
Shakespeare takes a story with a jealous man’s life ending in suicide and creates a new story of renewal, rebirth and forgiveness. Robert Greene 's Pandosto is about King Pandosto 's transpiring jealousy over his wife Bellaria 's presumed love affair with his lifelong friend, Egisthus. Shakespeare 's ability to adopt and manipulate the narrative show his creativeness in choosing sources and having somehow merging them into his own original work. Pandosto is originally darker than the Winter’s Tale. Shakespeare changed characters names and altered the tone of the play.
