Agitated and undoubtedly cunning, Iago seeks his revenge against Othello with a ferocity unmatched, using every arsenal disposable to him; deception being his greatest. One of the starter scenes with the most value is the point at which Iago deceives Cassio by pretending to be his friend, laying the groundwork of his masterful plan by inserting wisplike suggestions into Cassio’s mind to drink. Now, Cassio is a malleable, naive man, so it is relatively easy for Iago to

These films were directed by distinguished individuals, Kenneth Branagh and Franco Zeffirelli, each having distinct convictions about Hamlet. Known for producing one of the most renowned and successful depictions of Hamlet, director Kenneth Branagh has transformed the world of Shakespearean films.
In 1984, Orwell satirizes how the struggles of the lower class is much more than just inequality. Through the use of mockery, Orwell expresses how the suppression of the lower class can disillusion people into being ignorant. The “proles” in Oceania represent the commoners. They are subject to lack of privacy, unrelenting control, and corruption from the government, which can also be interpreted as the upper class. However, the proles have become desensitized to these unfair treatments.
Xunzi, in Chapter 23 of his book, stresses on the regulation of natural human feelings to bring about virtue or man would resort to violence. Xunzi claims that people are born with desires and a fondness of profits. Two prominent examples of this nature are the Nazi totalitarian regime and African Slavery. In both these cases, a group of people were discriminated against and exploited for personal gain. The Jews in Europe, and the Africans in the United States, were treated like substandard citizens, and were violently abused and murdered.
Towards the end, plans to free Jim have been labeled by critics as a return to minstrelsy, but under the surface they represent the systematic oppression of freed slaves and African Americans. They were seen as ploys for the whites to use for entertainment with no concern to their situation or troubles. Tom uses Jim for his own entertainment, and this is acceptable to society. Huck is even confused as to why Tom would help him, as Huck does not know that Jim has been freed. Huck labels this moral development as a result of his poor upbringing and rejection of society.

Corruption is also a big problem in our country which impedes the nation building process. Stratification Semi industrialised and Industrialised societies are usually structured or organised in terms of a hierarchy of unequal and different classes. The foundation of social stratification shifted from race to class under apartheid: the privileges enjoyed by the white South Africans were progressively derived from their particular class positions and less from racial discrimination, whereas some black South Africans benefited from rising social mobility despite the haunting legacy of racial discrimination. Max Weber viewed social stratification from three specific dimensions: social status, power (party), and economic class. According to him each of the above mentioned dimensions had its own stratification: the social, represented by honour
One Michael Leunig once said: “The hypocrisy of some is that we like to think of ourselves as sophisticated and evolved, but we’re still also drive by primal urges like greed and power.” This essay aims to extrapolate the falseness of the whites and present the subjugation the blacks endured in those times. Through the employment of characterization fueled with situational irony, Oyono is able to point out the brutalization of the blacks. At the beginning of the novel, an ignorant and naive Toundi “refers to his ancestors as cannibals and says that since the white men came they have learnt other men must not be
