With his ambition to rise to the status of “the Moor,” he exploits and influences the people around him in order to achieve that goal. By using Roderigo’s love of Desdemona, Othello’s trust in him, and the intentions of those around him, he attains that goal, but his actions soon catch up to him and his “web” unravels. Although Iago was the mastermind behind the plan, it was the already dark intentions of the individuals around him that enabled his exploitation of them. It is learned that although he may manipulate to get his way, his behavior proved to be not only his downfall, but the downfall of
Albert Camus, though denying the tag of existentialism, was and still is a great name amongst French existentialist authors who helped sculpt and define the movement in literature. His works deals extensively with the philosophy of existentialism and existential questions, often resulting in the only answer provided by him, and that is of absurdism. His characters, settings, and situations are dipped in a “tender indifference”, as quoted by him in his magnum opus L’Étranger or The Outsider as translated in English, which was published in 1942. Camus presents his characters amidst different stages of life, whether they are dealing with a moral fall, an epidemic, or a death sentence, and shows the reaction of these protagonist embracing the meaninglessness of life, whilst continually trying to reach an end and also being unfazed by that end at the same time. This paper will be analysing The Outsider, The Plague, and The Fall by Albert Camus and will aim at finding the instances of the idea of existence, the phenomenon of indifference, and the factor of absurdity towards humanity as presented by him in his works, proving him to truly be a writer of the Absurd.
Like a puppet master, Iago uses deception in the play Othello, by William Shakespeare, as a duplicitous being with perfidious views on the demise of others for personal revenge against Othello. Consequently, he is able to manipulate the characters in an adroit manner with ease as if fraudulency becomes second nature. Yet, Iago has not become this iconic villain without just (used loosely) cause. Before Iago’s notorious connotation, this dauntless soldier-people considering the precedent for just acts, and pious intentions- is discounted for a promotion by word of Othello, leading the inexorable “green-eyed monster” to peek its grotesque head out from underneath its lair. Agitated and undoubtedly cunning, Iago seeks his revenge against Othello with a ferocity unmatched, using every arsenal disposable to him; deception being his greatest.
In terms of social and nonsocial reinforcement, nonsocial reinforcement refers particularly to the series of events which takes place in socialization process and other learning factors as well as the traits and attitudes of an individual which will lead them to a delinquent life. In contrast, social reinforcement is the actual initiation of the anticipated behavior through the influence of material and valuable rewards that is present in the society. The final concept of social learning theory may motivate individuals to commit violations or deviant acts in the same direction of definitions. Differential reinforcement discussed the influence of rewards and punishments in developing and learning deviant behaviors
Similar to Iago in Othello, Iago brilliantly deceives everyone around him with his confidential plan to take revenge on Othello even if that meant multiple casualties: “So I will turn her virtue into a pitch / And out of her own goodness make that net / That shall enmesh them all” (2.3.340-343). Through a metaphor comparing Iago’s plan to a net, Iago explains the utilization Desdemona’s innocence and ignorance to ensnare everyone in one trap of deception for his own benefit. Like Buxton, when Roderigo almost found out about his plan, Iago did not stop his plotting and eventually fooled everyone until the end. Because of this trickery, the villainous nature of Shakespeare’s Iago provides insight on how easily one’s credulous nature can become deceived; consequently, opening the mind to possible theories of deception and afflicting society with distrust, similar to the surviving men and descendants who remained reluctant to trust public healthcare ever
Lemnitzer said “the objective is to provide irrevocable proof that...the fault lies with the communists et al Cuba” he said it would be accomplished “by manufacturing various pieces of evidence which would prove electronic interference on the part of the Cubans”. When Glenn survived his trip Lemnitzer was devastated but it did not stop him in his vindictive plea to invade Cuba. Lemnitzer and his colleges became obsessed with Castro. The operations devised became more and more ridiculous. One was to imitate the incident of February 1898 when an explosion on a Battleship killed 266 sailors.
He creates powerful imagery to depict the treacherous treatment slaves are enduring that floods the audience with shame. He provides them with a chance to recall their moral standards and compare them to slavery. He questions them to evoke the truth that slavery is never justifiable. The denouement of his speech is that it is patent to his audience that celebrating freedom with slavery existing is atrocious and want to eradicate
The hero of Intelligence Powder is a person arranged by Kateb called Puff of smoke, a philosopher who lays bare the hypocrisy but especially the idiocy of the Mufti, Cadi and Sultan (representatives of religious and political public authorities) and even ordinary citizens. In a pleasant style, using simple words and resorting to stylistic, irony mainly through full sequences of strangeness when the ridiculous reminiscence of Kateb Yacine writings provides excellent insight of the Algerian society fifty years ago, whose intellectual level still
Tiresias was the blind soothsayer of Thebes and he appeared in Oedipus the King and is one of the most important characters in this play. Oedipus the King, also known by the Latin title Oedipus Rex, is an Athenian tragedy by Sophocles that was first performed c. 429 BC. It was the second in order of Sophocles’ actual composition of his plays dealing with Oedipus. (Wikipedia) He also recognizes the true character of others, despite himself being blind, and is able to predict the future. He appears in Oedipus Rex, because his presence and his talents are requested by Theban King “Oedipus”.
The comedic genius made a surprising twist. The 1988 classic deviated from Allen’s original interests and delved deep into the unsolved problem since antiquity. Crimes and Misdemeanours is an epitome of the ongoing conflict regarding the moral values and their relativity. As the incarnations of the classic and the modern viewpoints on these central theme, Judah, Cliff, and their foils show how each individual adhering to the respective philosophies shall face consequence in the real world. By the plot, it is relatively easy to determine which side Allen stands by.
