As reek o' th' rotten fens, whose loves I prize As the dead carcasses of unburied men That do corrupt my air, I banish you! (3.3.150-153) Coriolanus responses most notably with
The lies that Don Pedro told show his playful nature and his joking spirit while the lies of Don John display his manipulative nature and his villain-like qualities. The play illustrates that lies can have good or bad consequences and the consequences of lies are determined by the character of the deceitful person. An ‘evil’ character, like Don John, will tell lies that can hurt people, while a ‘good’ character, like Don Pedro, will tell lies that will help people. So the lies that the character tells reflect their
Hamlet 's belief in that habit causes one to do evil without guilt can be connected to his own downfalls. Even so, Hamlet assumes that King Claudius is the habitual action that destroys good senses and strengthens bad behaviour. QUOTE. Hamlet is speaking to his mother about how habits can trigger the fall of an individual. The "monster" in this sense is Claudius, who Hamlet considers is the main cause of Gertrude 's sinful behaviour.
They differ from one another when it comes to guilt, and compassion. Comparing and contrasting Iago and Lady Macbeth will show the ideas of good and evil portrayed in these two plays. Iago and Lady Macbeth have many similarities. They were both nurtured into being the way they are.
We also observe a parallel situation in the play Much Ado About Nothing. Here we have Hero and Margaret using the same tactic to reach the same goal. On the other hand we have Don John who uses deception for cruel purposes. His plans to interfere in the relationship between Claudio and Hero led to devastating results and of course the embarrassing weeding ceremony. Another point turning deception is Hero’s death.
Actions create the foundations of just literary works. However, since nearly all events within literature involve interpersonal interactions and relationships, it can be hard to discern how to characterize an individual. Despite this difficulty, each person’s identity remains unique. Each character is defined by their identity, which is made of the combined influence of their various interpersonal relationships.
Throughout King Lear, Shakespeare utilizes irony(dramatic irony and irony of names) and anthropomorphism to enhance the tragic flaws within King Lear and Gloucester as well as to amplify Edmund, Goneril and Regan’s diabolical plans and personalities. The Fool’s name is ironic because although he’s supposed to be an unwise man who entertains the King, he is the one to actually speak sense to King Lear, yet him being labeled a “fool” allows King Lear to overlook the Fool’s knowledge and continue to make foolish mistakes that lead to his downfall. Dramatic irony is continuously displayed by informing the audience of Edmund, Goneril, and Regan’s evil schemes while leaving the rest of the characters ignorant allowing for the audience to see the
The two angels are both his inner thoughts, the Evil Angel representing his pride and sin while the Good Angel represents his conscious telling him that he is going down a wrong path. The story is a cautionary tale that people should not give in to their pride and desire, but it’s also a story that reinstates time and again that Faustus may have been saved if he had only repented. The play cautions readers to not give into their temptation and it praises the forgiveness of
In this play, the characters choose to be deceitful instead of being truthful when getting their way. The irony is that deception is used to find the truth by these characters. There are many examples of deceit in the play, most notably by Hamlet, Polnius and King Claudius. Hamlet uses deception
"Bradley believes Iago 's methods are considered plausible in the play. Leavis feels that Iago displays ‘a not uncommon kind of grudging malice’ and has enough of a grievance to explain his motivation. Some critics question whether Iago understands his own motivations. Hazlitt’s view of the villain has been extended so that Iago is now considered an example of the typical stage Machiavel who ‘personifies rationality, self-interest, hypocrisy, cunning, expediency and efficient “policie”’, he is an ‘amoral artist’ who seeks to fashion a world in his own image (Leah Scragg, ‘Iago – vice or
