Othello becomes jealous of Michael Cassio, when he suspects he is sleeping with his wife. “At way at once of love or jealousy”(131/220) Othello lets his own insecurities create a false image of his wife Desdemona letting the “Green-eyed monster” into his head. This becomes a problem for Othello because he can no longer hide his jealousy and starts to take it out on people. When jealousy sneaks into his life, it turns him into a completely different person and he can no longer control his anger, towards Desdemona and Cassio. “Jealousy has far thou taken over” Othello has no more room for any emotions and just lets the emotion of jealousy consume him.

Tybalt illustrates passionate hate which makes him very impatient with the Montagues and leads to his own death and causes emotional distress to the Capulet family. Accordingly this can be seen when Romeo goes to the fest at the Capulets and Tybalt wants to kill him solely because he was present at the fest. This, by his voice, should be a Montague.— (to his PAGE) Fetch me my rapier, boy.— What, dares the slave Come hither, cover’d with an antic face, To fleer and scorn at our solemnity? Now by the stock and honor of my kin, To strike him dead I hold it not a sin. Tybalt believes that Romeo attended the fest to mock and show disgrace to the Capulet and therefore wanted to kill Romeo.
Emily Brown Mr. Sowden English 12A 18 October 2016 Power, Greed and Ambition Found in Macbeth In Macbeth, the characters´ greed and initial impulses drive them. Rarely do they consider the serious repercussions for their actions. Macbeth and his wife in particular stopped at nothing, killing multiple people in their way for Macbeth to become king. This puts them in a state of a dangerous rage, leaving a trail of lies and terror behind them. This state leads to consequences and a dramatic downfall later on in the play.

Once Macbeth tells her about the witches’ proclamation, Lady Macbeth informs him of a plan to kill the king. However after seeing that Macbeth was unable to complete the plan by planting the daggers on the guards, Lady Macbeth angrily commands him, “Infirm of purpose! / Give me the daggers.

Is it love or lust? That’s for you to decide. If you think that young teens are immature and don’t know what love is, take a look at Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, it will prove your point perfectly. There are many arguments about Shakespeare’s “master of love” Romeo Montague. Some may say that he is a strong, independent man, who fights internal conflicts and his fears all in the name of love, while others say he’s a cowardly crybaby who makes absurd decisions resulting in tragedy among families.
“This shall determine that,” Romeo tells Tybalt this because he is saying that the fight will determine who dies for the death of Mercutio. “Romeo, away, be gone! ; The citizens are up, and Tybalt slain.” Benvolio, Romeo’s cousin is trying to get him away from the murder because there are witnesses to him killing Tybalt. “Oh, I am fortune’s fool.” Romeo is saying that he is a fool for just marrying Juliet then go out and kill her cousin. I think that Romeo was just mad and wanted revenge and did not have the time to think.
