Iago’s jealousy caused him to unquestionably ruin the relationship between Desdemona and Othello without the slightest sense of any shame or regret. Iago’s plan of revenge worked out perfectly, “Look to her, Moor, if thou hast eyes to see. She has deceived her father, and may thee” (1.3.333-334). Iago’s manipulation led Othello into believing that Desdemona was truly unfaithful towards him. He manipulated him with his words and used his insecurities to create doubt within his mind.
Macbeth does not want any competition. His capricious and malicious acts prove how naive and vile he is as a person. Macbeth even attempts to kill Banquo to prevent any trace of his nature from making him, a “fruitless crown.” Macbeth states, “Must lave or honors in the flattering streams, and make our face vizards to our heart, disguising who we are,”(3.2.45). With such desperation, Macbeth is willing to include other people in his premeditated murder. By having Lady Macbeth be part of his plot to kill Banquo, Macbeth reveals two things about himself: That he does not value those around him, even if they are his loved ones, and that he places his personal success over all aspects of his life.
This quote is an example of John Proctor threatening Abigail to get the outcome that he desires, the one that is best for him. He doesn't seem to care what the consequences for her are, he just wants to get himself and the people he cares about of the hook. It is a very selfish way to solve his problems. A great example of how selfish John Proctor is, it shows that he doesn't want himself getting caught with Abigail so he has to end things with her with very harsh language and a not so soft approach. He doesn't care if Abigail still has feelings and cant get over him, he only cares that he is not caught and thought of as a the bad and dishonorable man as he is.
In Much Ado About Nothing betrayal is shown through the characters dialogue. Betrayal in this play is sabotage and even the lack of listening to a loved one.

Nearly, if not every line spoken by Mercutio after the entrance of tybalt’s crew, is meant only to enrage and belittle them. (3.1.##) Simply by reading the mood of the situation and believing himself a little less to be “god’s gift to verona”, would the situation have a much better chance of being resolved. If mercutio had only thought reasonably through the situation, he would have realised that maybe tybalt was dangerous and provoking him isn't the best idea, as opposed to act impulsively on his ego. The final opponent is romeo, acting on his passion for vengeance. Now interestingly, romeo does not get slain, but his actions cause his banishment and Juliet's unwanted marriage proposal which in turn cause the faked death plan, and romeo's very real suicide.
This clouds his judgement to analyze evidence presented by the suspects of witchcraft. Danforth says,"We burn a hot fire here, it melts down all concealment", this quote shows that the the court only hears the truth and supposedly ignores the lies" (83). This is an inaccurate and an ironic statement. Even though, Danforth says that the court ignores all the lies to get to the truth, it is evident that this happens through the accusation of innocent girls. Danforth's power blinds him to the truth, and prevents him from seeing the effect that his actions have on the lives of innocent people Arthur Miller argues that being fearful or damaging one's reputation is what caused people to act irrationally and against their morals, coming off as selfish and arrogant, and leading to the Salem Witch Hysteria.
Placing the Blame The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet truly becomes a tragedy once Mercutio, Romeo’s close friend, is killed by the hand of Tybalt. Multiple claims could be made regarding who is responsible for Mercutio’s death, but he himself is ultimately to blame. Once Tybalt approaches him, Mercutio begins to instigate. The heat at the time of this scene was hardly bearable, making matters worse as Mercutio quickly becomes irritable. He made insulting comments and aggravating remarks, pushing Tybalt to the point of fighting.
He lies because his acts are motivated by his jealousy of Don Pedro. Don John creates a false situation of Hero being unfaithful, and presents his false evidence to Claudio and Don Pedro. Don John carefully uses his lying mechanisms to cause a huge misunderstanding and quarrel. Don John tricks Claudio and Don Pedro about Hero`s unfaithfulness by luring them into his trap, “If you dare not trust that you see, confess not that you know: if you will follow me, I will show you enough; and when you have seen more and heard more, proceed accordingly.” Don John easily lures them into his trap having them believe what isn`t
The tortures of hell are too mild a vengeance for thy crimes” (93). He is fully aware he the root of all problems, yet he believes the Creature to be censurable and denying to give it a chance of salvation when he breaks his promise and destroys the female creature he was working on; his actions result in his father and Elizabeth’s deaths. This also makes the
In Hamlet’s quest for revenge he begins to have self-doubt to whether man-slaughter is morally and politically correct. It is perfectly illustrated in the play as he proceeds on a transition of being ready to kill, to then considering if it is right or not, then heisting and wasting time, to finally dealing the deadly blow. Furthermore, it begins to become obvious that not only does Hamlet believe murdering is morally wrong, but for a sole reason it to is politically wrong. To begin with, when Hamlet has a talk with his father’s ghost it seems that the word “murder” catches him off guard, “Ghost: Revenge his foul and most unnatural murder. Hamlet: Murder?”.
