As I mentioned before, jealousy and greed can confuse you and act as if they are love which
The goddess was known to be jealous of Hercules, and extended to great lengths to make life difficult for him. Similarly, Petruchio begins to act deranged when he arrived to his wedding, only harming his reputation and family name, not his bride.

This is betrayal because he was suppose to love Hero and that means hearing her out no matter what happens, but instead he shamed her in front of everyone. Don John also says, ““For thee I'll lock up all the gates of love, And on my eyelids shall conjecture hang, To turn all beauty into thoughts of harm, And never shall it more be gracious.” (4.1.110-113). With the phrase, “For thee I’ll lock up all the gates of love” the reader can tell that Claudio has closed himself up from love because he is accusing Hero of cheating. This is betrayal as well because Claudio is not hearing Hero out and instead of listening to her he is going based off of what he’s

Macbeth begins to act more rash and either over thinking his actions or not thinking about them at all. This sudden behavior is due to stresses put on him by his wife. This shows that his morals are corruptible. One of the first signs is in the moments leading up to King Duncan’s murder. Macbeth hallucinates and wonders aloud “Art thou not, fatal vision, sensible to feeling as to sight, or art thou but a dagger of the mind, a false creation, proceeding from the heat-oppressed brain?”(Macbeth II.ii.36-39).

“Gaslighting” is a term to describe the gradual manipulation and abuse used to make another person feel as though they are going crazy. While it is inherently manipulative, it still can often go unnoticed to both parties, and the vicious cycle causes the victim to actually go crazy. The term originally applied this to a husband and wife relationship, which is the main relationship seen within “The Yellow Wallpaper.” The narrator in this is seen to be going crazy throughout the story, and the husband is seen as another victim trying his best to help her. Gilman uses their relationship and dialogue throughout the plot to showcase the consequences of gaslighting, and warn women of this “hidden” form of abuse. Gaslighting literally describes a movie in which the husband slowly dims the gaslight more and more, and convinces the wife that it is all in her imagination when she starts to notice.
Not only the witches, but also his wife easily manipulate Macbeth as she attacks his manhood in order to provoke him to act on his desires. Macbeth’s pride allowed his wife to use his ambition as leverage calling him a ‘coward’, ‘lesser than a man’. Macbeth was unable to withstand the belittlement and his masculinity mocked. Previously, Macbeths desire to obtain the
