Many have argued that teens should not be tried as adults because of having an immaturity to them and an underdeveloped brain in which influences the rational thinking of a teen. Although these arguments are very reasonable, to say that teens are not aware of their crimes, would only invalidate their statements. Juveniles are aware of their wrongdoings and they choose to commit foul play on innocent lives. These perpetrators had an intent to kill someone, they did so to feel satisfaction or to perhaps seek approval of someone. Furthermore, if teen killers are tried as adults, they should also be given the opportunity of liberation once they turn of age.
Desdemona is incredulous that anyone would actually cheat on a spouse. Her naivety becomes evident as she timidly avoids more graphic phrases. Emalia explains many people do, to Desdemona’s surprise. The fact that Desdemona is so loving towards Othello makes her death more tragic. She wants to follow his every order.
Cordelia stood up for what she believed in and as a result got banished from her family and kingdom. The Fool didn’t have much respect because of his job as the court jester. Though these two lacked the respect of the others, they held the most loyalty and wisdom for the king. William Shakespeare teaches that power and wealth do not provide wisdom, but wisdom can be hidden in the words of a loyal fool. The Fool and Cordelia are the primary caretakers of King Lear in the play.
Go, farewell. Or if thou wilt needs marry, marry a fool, for wise men know well enough what monsters you make of them. To a nunnery, go, and quickly too. Farewell.” (3.1.135-140) He says Ophelia is unfaithful, that she has made a fool of him and will make a cuckold of her husband, but she did not cheat or sleep around as he accuses. Gertrude, on the other hand, has in reality acted in a sinful or at least disgraceful was.
In the interesting quote, "I am a man more sinned against than sinning" (Hamlet, act 3:2.58-59), Lear states the unjust treatment he received from his daughters, while acknowledging that he has not been a saint himself. Through this quote shows his belief that although he has mistreated people and not acted right, his behaviour has yet not been worse than how others have treated him. Lear’s character is highly flawed and has undoubtedly acted unjust while having a shallow view on relationships and how they should be. Lear can be viewed as a stubborn old man whose mind cannot be changed easily. It is a striking event how he treats his alleged favourite daughter and how easily he believes the lies he is being fed.
First deception being between Desdemona, Othello, and her father with the elopement.

A good example of a character is Bertrande.Coras describes Bertrande as “ “given the weakness of sex, (was) easily deceived by the cunning and craftiness of men.” (Davis, pg 110). He (Coras) considered her ignorant of Arnaud 's true identity, hence innocent of wrongdoing.” (Finlay, pg 555) Davis however describes Bertrande as known more as an honorable and independent character who acts more like a hero rather than evil. This also does not make practical sense, because back in the sixteenth century, women often were silent, because women did not have the same as in the twentieth century, making them often not speaking their opinions. Because of these new characteristics Davis “does not yield a portrait of Bertrande that is either plausible or persuasive.” (Finlay, pg
