Brotherhood. The quiet approval beamed from one male to another” (Morrison 37). Desdemona believes that Othello knew what Iago had been planning and he just went along with it because they had a connection of brotherhood. Othello agrees with the sentiment when he tells his tale of violence with Iago. He only says the word “we” not “I” which shows their teamwork and effort.
I wept in deliverance and in pity for all mankind” (Rand, 98). This powerful sentiment revealed how powerful thinking in first person can be. For all of Prometheus’ life he was thinking through society’s guidelines. As he tried to break that barrier, he was told time and time again not to question how things work and focus on doing his job day to day. Luckily Prometheus was able to break the barrier as he began to think purely by himself.
This makes us realize, George, being a person who seems like he doesn’t have enough patience and tolerance, looks like he would easy murder Lennie years before, but he did have this special bond, apprehension. To illustrate, if you have the opportunity to slip out from your duty, the biggest duty, many people would do it, but George didn’t, Why? He did care and love his innocent friend, with his heart. In summary, killing Lennie is an example of the deep care George had for Lennie. Even with their differences and disagreements, each of them had this enormous respect and affection for each other.
Othello starts to believe Iago’s lies about his friends and wife, leading Othello to change his behavior towards his closest allies. Iago instigates a fight between Cassio and Montano, and Othello must take charge of his soldiers, he says: Thy honesty and love doth mince this matter, Making it light to Cassio. Cassio, I love thee But never more be officer of mine. (2.3.210-213) Othello makes the decision to fire Cassio, and things get worse when Iago makes his wife, Emilia, steal Desdemona 's handkerchief. Iago plants the handkerchief in Cassio’s lodging, and has a conversation with Othello about Cassio, saying: IAGO Nay, but be wise: yet we see nothing done; She may be honest yet.
In a light sleep, Odysseus reveals to the reader he knows the secret Penelope holds, He felt in his heart she knew him already And was standing beside his head. (20.101-102) Up to this point in the epic, the idea that Penelope knows Odysseus’ identity has only been interpreted. Odysseus’ strong feelings are important because he is extremely intelligent. Odysseus’ wit makes it likely his feeling is more than a just a feeling, but he has reasons to believe that his wife is aware of his identity. This scene reassures the audience that Penelope is aware who the beggar truly is because Odysseus feels it himself.
Some evidence to support this argument would be this quote. "Romeo 's friends, who wish to see him lifted above his melancholy, urge him to stop philosophizing about his lost love and to seek another young lady as a new object of his affections." (Dupler 1). This quote is basically describing what is going on before Lord Capulet 's party starts. Essentially what is going on during this time is that Mercutio and Benvolio are forcing Romeo to go to a party so he can invest his time in a new girl instead of moping about Rosaline, who is the girl Romeo loved before.
Julius Caesar and Marcus Brutus are both alike because they both have bad flaws, Caesar's determination leads to his death and Brutus' innocence eventually gets him killed. Pursuing this further, these two individuals are both very dependent for themselves. Caesar and Brutus are both honorable men living in Rome and have worrisome wives that love them and would risk their lives for their safety (Applebee 722-728). Nevertheless, Mario and Caesar are also alike because of their personalities and how they like to live. The two love to show their bravery for what they believe should be true and right.
The topic of jealousy will ultimately lead to the demise of many characters throughout the tragedy. Jealousy is first represented in Iago by his desire to become Othello’s lieutenant, however the position was offered to another character named Michael Cassio.

Though not so long ago he loved her, Demetrius’ feelings have changed drastically. He went form loving Helena to loathing her. He constantly tells Helena that the sight of her makes him sick and even goes as far as to threaten her if she follows him in the night. Just as the more Hermia denies him the more Demetrius wants her, the more Helena wants Demetrius the more he hates her. Even when Helena tells Demetrius that Hermia and Lysander plan to run away together he gives her no sympathy or gratitude, just pure hatred.
In Act 2, scene 1, lines 252-255 Iago explains, “Now, for want of these required conveniences, her delicate tenderness will find it-self abused, begin to heave gorge, disrelish and abhor the Moor.” From the beginning of the play, readers know that Iago hates Othello because he believed it was unfair that someone who was not as experienced in war was promoted as lieutenant, instead of him. Iago was plotting to get Othello to believe that his wife was a strumpet. He knew that this would anger and sadden Othello but he wanted to carry it out anyways, all while still making sure the Moor thought Iago was being loyal to
