Heroism, pride, distress, conflict and morals are all components which produced the literary piece. Each character had different motives for their aggression, but whether it was for revenge or out of pure enjoyment, the killing was always present. But above all, envy played the main candidate for what would come to be a bloodbath.

The audience sees this treatment through his constant manipulations of Othello’s mind, planting seeds of jealousy. While talking to Brabantio, Iago also describes Othello and Desdemona’s relationship as animalistic. This furthers the idea that Iago views Othello as non-human, causing him to take inhumane actions upon him.

Ten of us would gather together and hold a special service. All of his friends would say the Kaddish…These were terrible days. We received more blows than food; we were crushed with work. And three days after he had gone, we forgot to say the Kaddish.” In this instance, Elie and his friends were forced to let go, owing their allegiances to themselves, the living, rather than the dead. Another example of abandonment presented itself when, during the train ride to Buchenwald, a man killed his own father, merely for the sake of some bread.
and his adopted heir Octavian (63B.C – 14 A.D.) are out for revenge against the two main men who plotted and killed Caesar on the Idles of March in 44B.C. The hunt was on for those two men who elected to shake the foundations of the republic with the hopes of renewing what it was before Caesar crossed the Rubicon.
