Johann Kaspar Lavater once said, “The jealous are possessed by a mad devil and a dull spirit at the same time.” People who have become jealous are taken over by an evil greater than themselves, but are also taken by a insecurity they have inside of them, strong people taken over by jealousy so much- that they change so horribly no one wants anything to do with them. William Shakespeare’s Othello teaches us that in jealousy as either envy or fear, the only thing that could come out is the monster deepest inside of someone that even the best people wouldn’t want anyone to see. On one hand, envy and jealousy go hand and hand, together never without the other. For example, as Iago is talking to himself and the audience he states, “I hate the Moor,/And
They felt that she had better opportunities awaiting her in the future and they took that as a reason to cause her harm. However, in “Jealous Guy”, the main character unintentionally hurts his wife because he loves her so much and was afraid to lose her. Lennon sings, “I began to lose control… You might not love me anymore… I 'm sorry that I made you cry… I didn 't want to hurt you”. He was subsequently regretful of what he had done and never intended for anything of the sort to occur. These two texts show that jealousy can hurt people, even when the individual believes it would be beneficial.
Everywhere I go, they hate me”. (pg. 35, line 9) He was so confused he was asking for forgiveness so he didn’t feel alone, so he felt loved. Everyone pushed him away, he created fear to the people because of his complexion and size. He didn’t have any feeling but anger and hopelessness so he made everyone else around him feel his pain.
The “bullet” has a negative connotation to it because it often is associated with gun violence, warfare, homicides, and death. The metaphor insinuates that the girl is hurting him on the inside because this literary device indicates the girl hurting him after they fell out of love. Moreover, the narrator describes a boy’s past situation by stating that “… his skin / was a boy with a sad laugh” (4-5). This “sad laugh” is an oxymoron that shows the boy appears
Hate and violence both tend to spread like a disease. When hatred is introduced to an individual, he/she often cannot see past this burning motive - they yearn for revenge. Hatred and violence become a means of getting what someone wants. Author Samira Ahmed further elaborates on this topic: “In recent times, we’ve seen hate emerge out of the dark corners, torches blazing in the night. We’ve witnessed so-called leaders not merely against the forces of hate, but for equality and justice.
Love and affection given by their husbands all this while are false and unreal. This is proven by polygamy that is done by men. If men are really loving their wife, why must they marry another woman? Why must they betray their love and marriage? Thus, polygamy does not define a true love as it is too hurtful for women.
Romeo and Juliet is known to be a tragedy. The Prince says that everyone is to blame for the death of Romeo and Juliet. I think that Friar Lawrence, out of everyone, is the most to blame for the deaths. Although the Friar had the most part of it, Romeo’s death was bound to happen, but Juliet’s could’ve been prevented. He knew marrying the two was a bad idea, he explains why when he says, “Young men’s love then lies - Not truly in their hearts, but in their eyes,” (Shakespeare 733) and when he says, “Women may fall when there’s no strength in men.” (Shakespeare 733).
“Yet she must die, else she’ll betray more men” (5, 2, 6). By trying to provide justification for his actions he removes some of the guilt he feels and even though he still loves her even after believing she is being unfaithful, he does not want her to hurt more men. Through the use of figurative languages
All along hamlet did love Ophelia but he was just afraid to show that he did love her because he was afraid that he would get hurt. On the other hand, Hamlet could have also hidden his love to protect Ophelia from getting hurt from Claudius for the revenge they both wanted on each other. For instance when hamlet first tell Ophelia that he did love her but then changes with saying that he didn't he loved her because he knew that their conversation was being
I know not if 't be true, but I, for mere suspicion in that kind, will do as if for surety. (Act 1, Scene 3) By reading Iago’s words you can feel his distaste and hatred for Othello. With this innate hatred for Othello, Iago’s manipulative and foxy behaviour was ignited in a blaze of emotion. Next, Iago intentionally got Cassio drunk so as to get him to fight. This meant Cassio would be disciplined by Othello and hopefully lose his title as lieutenant.
