Once in place, Iago consulted Othello and hinted of the handkerchief’s location, which caused Othello to question Desdemona. Knowing she had misplaced such a valuable treasure, Desdemona lied when asked of its whereabouts. Unbeknownst to her, Emilia picked up the handkerchief, gave it to Iago, who placed it in Cassio’s room. Soon after Othello witnessed Cassio give it to a whore Cassio had been sleeping with. The handkerchief was Othello’s wedding gift to Desdemona which symbolized their love and devotion to one another, as it had for his father and
So one of the personification that I found in Romeo and Juliet was From love’s weak childish bow, she lives uncharmed. (Act 1, Scene 1, Page 11). The meaning of this personification was about Rosalina. Romeo says this to Benvolio while talking about love. Romeo says that she doesn’t want to fall in love and he says that she beautiful and has lovely eyes, but she is sadly a vrigin and vowed it.
For example, Juliet tells Romeo how her words from earlier that night cause her to blush and she says that she will gladly, “dwell on form… deny / What I have spoke: but farewell compliment!” (2.2.92-93). Juliet’s decision to ignore etiquette while handling this situation reflects how even a sliver of hope for love alters an individual’s choices. It is understandable to
Father Lawrence suggests a potion to cause a deathlike trance and that it“ free thee from this present shame/ If no inconstant toy nor womanish fear/Abate thy valor in acting it” (4.1.120). Father Lawrence assumes that Juliet is a normal girl who does not have courage, yet Shakespeare contrasts traditional girls to Juliet’s fearlessness.By drinking the potion, she shows tenacity as she tries to protect Romeo from Tybalt’s ghost, saying, “Stay, Tybalt, Stay! Romeo, Romeo, Romeo!/ Here’s drink, I drink to thee”(4.3.58). Simply to protect Romeo, she puts aside all fear of death and plunges headlong into a trance. She thereby dispels Father Lawrence’s stereotypes by not acting upon her ‘womanish’ fears and by instead acting masculine and trying to protect Romeo.
“Beteem” implicits that Hermia is allowing her tears to flow, because she wants to show how inconsolable she is not going to be marrying Lysander. Furthermore, it shows that how Hermia and Lysander’s love is extremely vehement and they love each other, because Hermia is allowing her tears to drip and not wipe them to show how much Hermia loves Lysander and that Hermia is forced to marry Demetrius. Explore the relationship/love of Titania and Oberon presented in A2S1: In act two scene one, Shakespeare shows Titania and Oberon’s love as Destructive love.Titania and Oberon’s conflict as implacable and how Oberon feels jealous. Firstly, Oberon and Titania encountered each other then they start arguing; Oberon was vexed and later stated: “Tarry, rash wanton! Am not I thy lord”.
Thinking and fearing all sorts of dangers… She rather found herself angry at imaginary people who might try to criticize” (Hurston 125). Unlike with previous marriages, she actually worried about Tea Cake and would be willing to protect him. The happy feelings that Tea Cake had given Janie are told after his death. When Janie is thinking of Tea Cake, the book explains that “The kiss of his memory made pictures of love and light against the wall. Here was peace” (Hurston 193).
This shows how free will affected Pandora in a negative way to the plot. In Pyche and Eros a large part of the story was based on free will. Psyche was convinced by her sisters to check if her fate to marry a terrible monster has come true. So she snuck into her husbands room "and when her husband has fallen into his deep sleep, she went silently to his bedside and held the light above him." She happily found out he was not a monster but she mistakenly "Leaned over, accedenltly tipping the candle."
From the girl in Weed to Curley’s hand, Lennie is bound to hurt someone eventually. Even George says he ‘should of knew’ that Lennie would do something like this, absolving Curley’s Wife of any blame for her own death. Even so, Candy blames her, saying ‘you goddamn tramp… you done it, di’n’t you?’ as if it’s her own fault she’s dead and she only got herself murdered out of spite so Candy’s dream could not come true. It’s as if she did it on purpose. He says, ‘I spose you’re glad’ and we’re reminded that Candy sees her as entirely responsible for the destruction of his dream.
“In a moment, however, wisely judging that one token of her shame would but poorly serve to hide another…” (p 45). One of the most significant scenes is in Chapter nineteen, when Hester lets down her hair and removes the scarlet letter, causing Pearl to “burst into a fit of passion” (p 180) Pearl was so upset that Hester removed her scarlet letter, because she felt as if she removed a part of herself. Pearl knows what the scarlet letter means, and that it is somehow associated with her. No matter how much Hester wants to cover up her sin, Pearl prevents her
Hamlet quotes he is “revengeful, ambitious, with more offences at my beck” (III.i.126-127) when talking to Ophelia. He acknowledges his own ambition for revenge and is even able to admit to to, claiming that King Hamlet’s passing was constantly on his thoughts. His actions and intentions in the play all lead up to one thing: getting revenge on Claudius. Not only did Claudius murder him, he also stole Hamlet’s rightful position as king. Another example is during Hamlet confrontation with the ghost when he says “wings as swift, As meditation or the thoughts of love, May sweep to my revenge” (I.iv.35-37).
In the short story “A Bolt of White Cloth,” Leon Rooke develops on the idea that love is a weakness that clouds and blinds the thoughts. The woman is intrigued by the travellers cloth and does not notice that she is being blinded by it. She does not notice her husband and is so in love with her new cloth that everything else fades away. “You could have knocked me over with a feather when she up and kissed him full on the mouth, with a nice hug to boot.” (Page 60). She speaks a lot about wanting to make new curtains with some of that nice new cloth and the curtains can mean a lot of things.
The handkerchief plays a major role in the play as it leads to Othello’s and Desdemona’s downfall. When Othello gives the handkerchief to Desdemona, it symbolises the love Othello has for Desdemona. Iago gets his hands on the handkerchief and plants it on Cassio. Due to this, Iago manipulates the meaning of the handkerchief into proof of Desdemona’s infidelity. Iago says to Othello that he “See[n] Cassio wipe his beard with” (III.iii.437-438).
Besides, Lady Macbeth also tries to comfort Macbeth by letting him sleep after Macbeth saw the ghost of Banquo and says the reason of we can not fall asleep cause we are the beginners to spur Macbeth on continuing their plan of being king. If there is no one that smarts like Lady Macbeth and cares about Macbeth 's health, Macbeth will never success. Therefore, Lady Macbeth is the indispensable person on Macbeth 's
