This transforms Othello into a dominated minority who lives under the manipulation of Iago. To conclude, marginalized positioning not only crumbles Othello’s confidence and manhood, but it also drives feelings of insecurity and uncertainty in Othello’s mind which gives rise to Othello’s tragedy and
He concealed his feelings in worry of looking soft in front of Socs or even worse, his fellow Greasers. His high IQ and good grades and interest in books and movies do not matter because he lives on the poor side of town. He gets judged on where he comes from, rather than on the person he tries to become and hopes to become. Johnny, the second youngest Greaser, gets jumped by Socs, and has feared them since the incident. Johnny, the loyal gang member, gets described as the gang 's pet.
The first example of these fights is between the greasers and the Socs. Both classes disliked each other, just because of prejudice. The greasers assumed that all Socs were condescending, egocentric, and gaudy, and all the Socs identified the greasers as dangerous hoods. Therefore, lots of Socs would jump the greasers and vice versa. The next example of prejudice and hate is the fact that Ponyboy hates all guys with green eyes (page 1, chapter 1) only because he associates green eyes with Socs.
Simultaneously, Victor failing to take responsibility for his own creation leads the creature down a path of destruction that manufactures his status as a societal outcast. The creature's dissolution from society, his search for someone to share his life with, the familiarity with intense anguish, his thirst for retribution, each of these traits coincide with Victor as he is depicted throughout the novel. Victor unknowingly induces his own undoing through his rejection of the creature. Shelley foreshadows his downfall by stating that “the monster still protested his innate goodness, blaming Victor’s rejection and man’s unkindness as the source of his evil” (Shelley 62) The creature essentially places Victor at fault for the creature becoming an outcast of society, by expressing this Shelley constructs a very austere portrayal of man’s contact with outsiders. Virginia Brackett asserts in her analysis of the novel that “Due to the monster's rejection by the cottagers and other humans, Victor serves not only as his creator but also as the only social construct on which he can build his reality” As the creator of the creature, Victor adopted the responsibility of his creation and the duties that accompany it, however, instead of answering the call of duty he fled and disregarded his obligation to the creature.
Character Defense: Romeo We perceive that Romeo is innocent due to his apparent love for Tybalt and his clear disesteem to the brawl unfolding. He wanted to advent the violence thrust upon him by his love (Tybalt). He cared too much to fight him but when a good life-long friend, Mercutio, is murdered in front of his very eyes he is shaken to the core. He did this while not in the correct state of mind, cleary in a haze of sorrow and guilt not yet fully comprehending the effects of his actions. His gentle altercation with Tybalt defines his love for his friends and family.
Moreover, Othello’s actions are based on seemingly physical evidence, giving him good reason to act as he does. Indeed, Othello has no reason to distrust Iago, his loyal ensign. Throughout the play, the majority of the characters are deceived by Iago, believing him to be honest and trustworthy. Whilst speaking with Emilia, Desdemona refers to Iago as “an honest fellow” (Shakespeare, 3.3.5). Similarly, after Cassio hears Iago’s advice to seek out Othello and beg for forgiveness, he bids a “good night [to] honest Iago” (Shakespeare, 2.3.313), who is none other than the man that diminishes his reputation and causes him to lose his title.
He is a disgusting character who highlights some of the poor qualities seen in people during the Medieval Period. While Chaucer’s novel is structured around a unique group of characters on a pilgrimage, all of which resemble different types of people, some stand out as very unfavorable individuals. The Miller is one of these people. Due to the nature of his tale and behavior on the pilgrimage, one can reasonably claim that he is the most revolting of all the characters. In general, the Miller embodies the negative stereotypes of the working class during the Medieval Period.
Creon disagrees strongly and becomes inflamed towards Haemon. Another flaw of Creon is that he is a hypocrite who does not stick to his own words, thus perjuring himself. In his initial speech he says “ - a man who does not take the best advice there is - such a man is the very worst of men and always will be.”. But later in the play Creon doesn’t listen to the advice of those around him, in the most basic sense he is saying that he is the worst of men. These tragic flaws work against him as the story progresses.
Antigone being punished and sentenced to death by Creon sets the dramatic action in motion. The major conflicts in the production are: man vs. society, man vs. man, and person vs. supernatural. The man vs. society conflict is between Antigone and the society present in Thebes as she is seen as an outcast and traitor because she disobeys the King. The man vs. man conflict is between Antigone and Creon, Antigone and Ismene, and Haemon and Creon. The person vs. supernatural conflict comes from the fact that many, especially the family of Antigone, are cursed by the gods and their fate is destructive.
Iago is able to manipulate the other characters of the play because he is a villain who doesn't understand the morals of society. Othello and all of the immoral acts that it contains are the direct result of Iago's hatred for Othello, Emilia and women yet alone the insecurities that Iago has about his own achievements.
