However, Iago is not the only one that is to take all the blame. Othello’s naive nature hindered him from seeking the truth of Desdemona and Cassio and finding out Iago had been lying the whole time. Iago may have been the cause of rumors, however Othello’s own doing ultimately caused him to suffer the consequences due to the fact that he did not communicate with his wife. He let a envious person control every aspect of his perception of his wife. He let a piece of fabric be the defining factor of whether or not his wife was faithful to him.
Therefore, both characters have this tendency to trust themselves and it brings both good and adverse effects to them. A striking difference between Creon and Antigone is their priorities. The greatest priority for Creon is the state power. He is quite cold towards his family because he is focused on following his own rules for the sake of Thebes. However, when it comes to family he acts so inhuman that he doesn 't listen to his own son and even thinks about ruthlessly punishing his nieces Antigone and Ismene.
This incident shows the reader that she wants to be taken seriously by her colleagues. It also displays that Hilly deeply treasures her reputation because of her reaction towards the situation. On the other hand, Aunt Alexandra has also shown the reader signs that she values her family’s reputation. In chapter 23 of To Kill a Mockingbird, Aunt Alexandra did not allow Scout to play with Walter Cunningham because of his poor background. She said, “Because-he-is-trash, that’s why you can’t play with him.
She did not have much hope left anyways for her life because she annoyed the misfit with her ugly and selfish ways. In another quote the grandmother implies that the misfit is a good man by stating, "Yes it's a beautiful day," said the grandmother. "Listen, " she said, "You shouldn't call yourself the misfit because I know you're a good man at heart. I can just look at you and tell" (421). The grandmother doesn't know the misfit from Adam, yet she already gave him a persona that he has to match.
Okonkwo is very aware of his self-image and wants to be viewed as a hero in the Ibo tribe. If Okonkwo was to act feminine he would not be seen as a hero, but he would be insulted instead. Okonkwo’s father was a very lazy, weak man with no desires or ambitions. Okonkwo strived to be the opposite of who his father was and wants to have a totally different reputation than his father. ‘Even as a little boy he had resented his father’s failure and weakness, and even now he still remembered how he had suffered when a playmate had told him that his father was agbala.
We see that he loves her and wants the best for her because he insists that she pray before he kills her because “[Othello] would not kill thy unprepared spirit,” (V,ii. 36). Othello is a different man and can no longer give her the love that she deserved. His heart had grown so cold that he cannot give her mercy, so he rather decided to kill her with a clean spirit, to get the love and mercy from elsewhere. On that note, a guiltless death she dies (V,ii.
Murder is quite a big deal and would definitely go under as being the bad guy. She also feels superior to everyone so she sticks her nose up to everything and treats others below her because of her family’s former position in the town. But on the other hand, she is the protagonist because one, the town is part of the reason of her killing Homer and always pitying her and saying that she would live alone forever and two, because her dad had raised her that way. Her dad had kept her sheltered way too long and when any guy would try to get with her, he would turn them down because they were not "worthy enough." She is also the major character in the story and there would be no one else to be the protagonist.
His selfishness however, isn 't fueled by self-love but rather his ability to passionately hate those who cross him and his strong desire for revenge. Heathcliff has the capacity to love, in fact he loves Catherine more than anything else, but her betrayal and his rough childhood destroyed what little hope he had of becoming a good, honest human. After Catherine and Edgar 's marriage, Heathcliff is hurt and bitter. In order to get back at them, Heathcliff decides to pursue Edgar 's little sister Isabella. He is able to easily convince Isabella to marry him, but he really sees her as nothing more than a tool he can use to upset Catherine and Edgar.
Do you share my madness?” (Shelley 28). After everything he went through, Victor still thought that the quest for knowledge was worth the death of his entire family because male identity is tied to his romanticized quest, “Do not return to your families with the stigma of disgrace marked on your brows.” (215). We must ask, what shifts Victor’s purpose from a warning to a doubling down on his male hubris? In part, it is a refutation on his own feminine nature. His inability to except feminine qualities within himself causes him to fail at caring for his creation, to separate himself from the domestic life, and to view femininity as a
After experiencing the horrors of World War I, Paul believes he is “nothing but an agony for myself, for my mother, for everything that is so comfortless and without end” (Remarque 185). Paul is in fact guilty for his involvement in the violence of the war. He realizes this fact and becomes dispirited because he bemoans allowing himself to get involved in such cruelty. Despite the fact that Paul experiences adverse emotions because of it, he learns from his past blemishes. Even though he can never really rescind his previous actions, he still uses them as a guide towards refraining from repeating the same missteps.
Alai also demonstrates, through his refusal, that he doesn’t possess the same compliance with inflicting pain on others despite being Bernard’s best friend. This exhibits the grandness of their humanity for they both sacrifice their own selves to prevent the boy they just met from getting hurt. “ He hadn’t meant to kill the Giant. This was supposed to be a game. Not a choice between his own grisly death and an even worse murder.
However at the end it’s clear that the reader’s reaction can change when she has the conversation with the Misfit, she repeatedly says “I know you’re a good man...You wouldn’t shoot a lady”(14-15), because the reader know thinks that she really is selfish but she’s also ignorant and petty. The only reason that the grandmother is saying positive things about the misfit is because her life is at risk and the second part of the quote shows that she cares about herself and doesn 't ask if he would kill all the family. It shows all her pettiness making the reader think “No wonder why June Star wants her dead”. This is the grandmother’s characteristics of being selfish, ignorant, petty and etc but underneath all the evil that the grandmother has there can be some good things in her just like the
