Both texts have the same plot line where Iago or Ben Jago is set out to destroy Othello in vengeance for not getting the title/position that he thought that he deserved. He makes up the same lie where Desdemona is accused of cheating on Othello with Cassio/Michael Cass. In the play, Iago is very persistent when it comes to making Othello suffer by manipulating him and others throughout the whole novel without any empathy. Whereas in the novel Ben Jago does manipulate others but halfway through the film he does realize that maybe things have advanced past what he ever expected them to be. In the play itself, Iago does not know when to stop manipulating people and he also does not realize when things get pushed past it limits.
In the Shakespeare story, “Othello” the villain of the story, Iago has a not so shocking transformation. He was a small time rapscallion, who simply at the the beginning wanted revenge for the wrongdoing done to him by being passed up for the promotion to lieutenant. But then it turned into more of nefarious plan, to “turn [Desdemona’s] virtue into pitch.” (Shakespeare.2.33.338) He manipulated everyone in this storyline he interacts with, especially the following characters; Roderigo, Othello & Emilia, with each character he goes from being harmless physically to being unpredictably evil. Roderigo, the man who unrequitedly has fallen in love in with Desdemona makes a deal with Iago in hopes of winning her heart. He doesn’t think logically, he thinks with his emotions and is an easy puppet for Iago.
Lady Macbeth persuades and manipulates Macbeth by pointing out his insecurities successfully and pressuring him into murdering the king. Along with this, Lady Macbeth also questions Macbeth’s manhood and masculinity when he does not want to carry out the plan when she says “When you durst do it, then you were a man;//And to be more than what you were, you would//Be so much more the man” (Shakespeare 1.7.49-51). By saying these things, Lady Macbeth persuades her husband to believe that murdering the king will be his redemption from being a

Revenge strips men of their morality by causing them to see another person as an object for their torment. In Nathaniel Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter, Roger Chillingworth’s vengeance consumes him and it becomes his life’s goal to torture his adversary. Chillingworth is the worst sinner because he seeks to end Dimmesdale, lies to maintain his sinful scheme, and never admits his wrongdoing. Chillingworth shows no restraint in persecuting Dimmesdale to achieve his ends. When he arrives in the town he finds that a man has committed adultery with his wife, which “[leads] him to imagine a more intimate revenge than any mortal had ever wreaked upon an enemy.” From that moment, Chillingworth swears to exact his retribution.
Everyone feeds evil through lying, jealously, and assumption. A major fault in everyone in “The Crucible” is their continual lying to get whatever it is they want. With witchcraft being the weighted weapon it is it is easy for one to gain from the loss of others. Putnam is greedy, throughout the whole play he tries for the other villagers’ belongings. In Scene V Corey suggests that “If Jacobs hangs for a witch he forfeit up his property—that’s law!
