William Shakespeare's play Othello uses irony to present the central message that reputation is not an accurate evaluation of one’s character, for manipulation is very prevalent throughout the plot. Varying types of irony are used as Othello, Emilia, and Desdemona all are not able to grasp reality with the information that is presented to them. Iago takes away what is truly occurring to improve his own standings while shattering others. Emilia was unaware of her husband's intention to sabotage as she exclaimed, “I tell you, it makes my husband so unhappy, you’d think it was his own cause”(Shakespeare 155). Furthermore, on a superficial level dramatic irony was used as Emelia was blind to Iago being the cause of the predicament.
Be that as it may, he detects that the sex between them is beginning to mean something more to Sula, and this panics him off. From one perspective, he makes no guarantees to her of a conferred relationship, and Sula appears to be content with this game plan at first. Yet, the way that he is unwilling or not able to stick around when a lady begins to think about him brings up issues about his character. What are we expected to make of the way that almost the greater part of the guys in the novel leave the ladies in their lives? Ajax is especially intriguing in light of the fact that he blends something in Sula that she's never felt.
Bastiat makes a similar comparison in her essay by stating, “In the play, Algy and Jack are idle and lazy, but morally the women are not better than them: like them, they are idle, lie, cheat and are interested in money.” Both Gwendolen and Cecily request that their partner’s names be “Ernest” and are pitted against one another when they believe they were engaged to the same man. Furthermore, Gwendolen disapproves of men who are involved with the public sphere, and she judges her father in Act II by advocating, “The home seems to me to be the proper sphere for the man. And certainly once a man begins to neglect his domestic duties he becomes painly effeminate, does he not?” (913). Even though women were discouraged from being involved with the public sphere, Gwendolen’s disapproval for any gender stepping up to the public sphere shows Wilde’s
Creon disagrees strongly and becomes inflamed towards Haemon. Another flaw of Creon is that he is a hypocrite who does not stick to his own words, thus perjuring himself. In his initial speech he says “ - a man who does not take the best advice there is - such a man is the very worst of men and always will be.”. But later in the play Creon doesn’t listen to the advice of those around him, in the most basic sense he is saying that he is the worst of men. These tragic flaws work against him as the story progresses.
