This was the beginning of Iago's anger and frustration and begins to plot against Othello. Iago was able to convince Roderigo how much he hated Othello by calling him names like "Moor", Iago also say's " I follow him to serve my turn upon him./ We cannot all be masters/ nor all masters cannot be truly followed (1. 2. 45. 9), these simple words indicate how Iago truly feels about Othello.
Iago affects the characters’ lives in a negative way by his honest reputation, his ability to “read” people, and how he “proves” to be Loyal. Iago’s honest reputation and his two-faced personality ensnares the protagonists into his plan. Initially he gets the character to think that he is generally honest and then builds that small reputation up to a bigger one so then he can spill out lies to trick them. He seems to be honest through his actions when he is in
Huck lets the two lie and cheat because allow them will give him less trouble than if he were to confront them. Since he let them continue, they put on fake plays, such as Romeo and Juliet, and lie to strangers to earn money by saying they are a “changed man because of God” during a camp meeting. Twain shows how twisted the world is by using these characters to show how being morally wrong can take you farther than being a good person. As shown previously, Twain expressed his opinion on morality in various ways in Huckleberry Finn. He showed how the stereotypes during this time were not accurate at all, and how they can be broken.
He lived the rest of his life in nightmares and fears which denounced his actions. He realized how unscrupulous his actions were and his souls is long huanted by it. After the murder, he does not dare to put the dagger back. We could see, from this point, The warrior and Duncan’s “worthiest cousin” (1.4.15) is so terrified by his own action that a sound would scare him. While he is haunted by guilt, Macbeth has to secure his throne by murdering Banquo and Fleance.
After being thrown in jail proctor finally realized that he was a terrible person and he even admits it. While talking to elizabeth he says “ I cannot mount the gibbet like a saint. It is a fraud. I am not that man.” (Miller 136) Proctor also admits to elizabeth “ My honesty is broke, Elizabeth; I am no good man.” (Miller 136) In saying this, proctor takes responsibility for what he did, thus proving that he knows his actions are what caused him to be where he is at. In the end proctor says “ let rebecca nurse go like a saint; for me it is fraud” and “it is evil and I do it.” (miller 138) This quote furthermore proves that he knows he is responsible for where he is at and for his actions.
Calpurnia is clairvoyant, yet Decius was ignoble, as he claims that the nightmares are nothing to worry about despite the fact that he knows for a fact that Caesar will be dying. This is lying. Decius wanted more so to obliterate Caesar. As Decius is saying in the play, he will be laughing and affronting others for not liking Caesar. Decius
His words and about amusements and life delectations, that Dorian dives into sensual pleasures, debauchery, and crimes. Kohl argues that “Dorian’s fatal error is to take Lord Henry’s theories as practical guides for life” (156). In “wild desire to know everything about life” (Wilde 44) Dorian destroys destinies of people, corrupting them with his thirst of pleasures. Friendship with him is pernicious for people around: Alan Campbell commits a suicide; Adrian Singleton conducts a pathetic life of the addict, having slid on the bottom; the reputation of the cousin of Lord Henry, Lady Gwendolyn is forever discredited—even her children are not allowed to live with her in one house. Liebmann emphasizes that among the major characters only the Mephistophelean Henry survives, and all others—Sybil, Basil, James Vane, Sir Henry Ashton, Lord Kent’s son and aforementioned characters are the victims of Dorian’s influence (451-452).
Furthermore, in Oedipus’ search, he declared, “[I]f with my privity, [the murderer] should become an inmate of my house, I may suffer the same things which I have just called down upon others” (132). Oedipus’ declarations during his search paint him as the quintessential enlightened despot, one that does not favor family and doles out only just punishments. Unbeknownst to him, he would indeed house Laius’
Iago, consumed by revenge and jealousy, inflicts evil upon his fellow neighbors. Iago’s revenge consumes him feeding off the source, his greed. Iago’s position within Othello’s army was a ancient. His revenge transpire from his knowledge of not being promoted to a higher position of lieutenant. When Iago discovers that Othello has passed him up for the lieutenant position giving it to Cassio a young soldier , their future turns out for the worst.
/ She was too fond of her most filthy bargain” (5.2.153-159). Crowther translates this line as, “If he said that, then I hope his malicious soul rots in hell forever. He’s lying through his teeth! She was too attached to her filthy marriage ever to do a thing like that!” (Crowther). Emilia is explaining to Othello, Iago is lying and manipulating Othello.
Quiet Kill He was astounded at how far the ripples of the past had extended into the present and at how Coz remained consistently inconsistent. In one last desperate attempt, to topple the barrel and at righting the ship, Wormwood yelled, “First of all, I’ve been called worse things by better people. Second, first chance I get, gonna cut your guts out then slice your throat. You think I’m joking, just you wait. If I were you, I’d sleep with one eye open jack.” It was obvious losing was a crushing, devastating blow.
