However, the plot thickens when Edmond learns that his lover, Mercedes has married and had a child with the very man that put him in chains: Fernand. Although her betrayal was involuntary, the mere fact that it had occurred while he was away feeds the blazing fire inside Edmond. From this point on, he paves a path his past self never thought he could walk: killing, deceiving and transforming into the exact monsters that had put him away. This further shows how the betrayal of the men that were once his trusted peers not only stole years from his life, but stole the very thing that made him innocent: his happiness. If Edmond hadn’t been blind to the selfishness and envy that lies in every man, perhaps he could have seen the trouble that surrounded him.
In an increased effort to seek revenge, Iago uses help from Roderigo’s desire to be with Desdemona, Cassio’s good looks, and Othello’s own open and free nature to ruin Othello’s own life. Othello is a unique, one of a kind character who changes throughout the story in how he talks and what 's he says, his appearance, his actions, and his interactions with characters. Throughout the story the audience views how impacting the character Iago is to Othello and his total interpretation of every single aspect around him which leaves readers with nothing but an ache in their chest filled with sorrow and longing. Othello is immediately introduced as a confident, humble man as general of the venetian army and his marrying of a white woman. Evidence of this is when in Brabantio confronts Othello about marrying Desdemona.
Placing the Blame The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet truly becomes a tragedy once Mercutio, Romeo’s close friend, is killed by the hand of Tybalt. Multiple claims could be made regarding who is responsible for Mercutio’s death, but he himself is ultimately to blame. Once Tybalt approaches him, Mercutio begins to instigate. The heat at the time of this scene was hardly bearable, making matters worse as Mercutio quickly becomes irritable. He made insulting comments and aggravating remarks, pushing Tybalt to the point of fighting.
During this speech Henry appeals to the Pathos side of an argument by using emotions to try to convince his knights of their wrong doing. King Henry says “But, oh, what can I say to you, Lord Scroop? You cruel, ungrateful, savage, and inhuman creature! You who had access to all my thoughts, who knew me to the inmost part of my soul,...” (Sparknotes n.pag.) He uses emotional words and sayings like “ungrateful” and “inmost parts of my soul” to really drive home that fact that he felt personally victimized by their betrayal.
In The Prince (1532), Machiavelli lists elements a prince should have. The biggest thing Machiavelli cautions against is breeding hatred. He claims that “[…] a wise prince should establish himself on that which is in his own control and not in that of others; he must endeavor only to avoid hatred” (Machiavelli 82). Hatred will lead to loss of control. If the civilians hate the prince, then they have control over him.
This portrays that their murders have caused them to advance to insanity. The guilt consumes her just like Macbeth. Macbeth character growth to progress a sociopath as his actions feed through fear caused by the guilt. He says, “I am in blood \ Stepped in so far that, [if I continue], \ returning were [the same as to continue murder]” (III. IV, 69-170).This shows Macbeth character growth to progress as a sociopath as his actions drive through fear caused by guilt.
This is like Odysseus because he was extremely depressed and when trapped by Calypso, had nothing to look forward to as well. King was arrested over twenty times for his protests against racial discrimination. He received many life threatening phone calls and his house was bombed and then set on fire. Happening at the wrong time, this could have severely injured if not killed King’s wife and children. J. Edgar Hoover, the first director of the FBI agency claimed that King had to be the “most notorious liar in the country.” King was stabbed by an African-American woman while he was signing his newly released book.
Revenge strips men of their morality by causing them to see another person as an object for their torment. In Nathaniel Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter, Roger Chillingworth’s vengeance consumes him and it becomes his life’s goal to torture his adversary. Chillingworth is the worst sinner because he seeks to end Dimmesdale, lies to maintain his sinful scheme, and never admits his wrongdoing. Chillingworth shows no restraint in persecuting Dimmesdale to achieve his ends. When he arrives in the town he finds that a man has committed adultery with his wife, which “[leads] him to imagine a more intimate revenge than any mortal had ever wreaked upon an enemy.” From that moment, Chillingworth swears to exact his retribution.
First of all Johnny Cade was frightened, he was frightened of coming home to his parents, he was frightened because the soc’s beat him up really badly, and he was frightened that he was going to die. The article states on page 30, “Johnny was jumpier than ever”. This shows us that Johnny was spooked and it made everything around him think, was bad.

Besides that, jealousy leads Othello to hate his innocent lieutenant, Cassio. Therefore, he wants to kill Cassio as well, said, “Not Cassio kill'd” Then murder's out of tune, And sweet revenge grows harsh.”(823). The point of jealousy becomes the most powerful poison throughout the play as it motivates the characters’ actions. The major characters of Iago and Othello clearly possess this jealousy and show how it affects them. Iago is forced to expose his actual nature and Othello undergoes a total transformation from a normal human to a spiteful monster.
