Othello and Matrix teaches us that jealousy is toxic makes a person want to destroy something precious. Othello had a talk with Desdemona about cheating and knowing she been doing. Othello says, “By heaven, I saw my handkerchief in’s hand! O perjured woman! Thou dust stone my heart.
Well Lady Macbeth, who is dead set on having absolute power, disagrees with that. She convinces Macbeth to kill, to cover up the murders, and tries to convince him that these murders will get them to the top. Lady Macbeth calls upon the witches and states, “unsex me here, and fill me from the crown to the toe top-full of direst cruelty” (Macbeth Act 1 Scene 5 lines 31 and 31). This shows that while in the pursuit of power, Lady Macbeth wanted it so much that she asked the witches to “unsex” her and make her more like man. But along with that you see the theme of gender roles are uncertain which ties into Lady Macbeth leading Macbeth in this pursuit of power, also giving him the ambition that she wants him to
In addition to that I would be showing how Steinbeck creates tension by using Curleys Wife. Curley 's Wife is first shown as a dangerous desperate villain in the novella by Steinbeck. You can see this from the repetition of the word red. For example he says 'red mules ' , 'bouquets of red ostrich feathers ' , ' Her fingernails were red. ' This summarizes that Curley 's Wife is trying to look her best in front of the bunkmates to flirt with them by showing off her beauty.
No, I cannot, I cannot stop my mouth; It’s God’s work I do” (875). That is until Mary caves under the pressure and accuses John Proctor of being the Devil 's man, so nothing bad occurs due to Abigail. In addition, Abigail tells lies, manipulates her friends and the entire town, and eventually sends nineteen innocent people to their deaths. Throughout all of the hysteria, Abigail’s motivations are based off of a simple jealousy and a desire to have revenge on Elizabeth Proctor. There are a few background
Steinbeck comments on discrimination throughout the novella. Racial discrimination was directed towards crooks when he”ain’t wanted in the bunk hous” sexism was directed towards curleys Wife when George describes her as a bitch and hes “seen ‘em poison before, but never seen no piece of jail bait worse than her” ageism was directed to wards candy when hes “gonna get canned” when “he’s no good to himself” and Lennie was discriminated because of his disability when curley picks a fight with him He comments on humans constantly being stereotypical and discriminative and is trying to convey the idea that ‘we need to all be kinder’. He portrays the character of Curley as the antagonist of the novella who is cruel petulant and bullying. Both George and Lennie, as protagonists, express their distaste for this sort of
Through the novel, we can see how Gilead negatively affects the psychology and mentality of the handmaids that makes them to give up to the system and brain washes them. One example is Janine. She is rejecting her victimization and ignorant of her own victimization, Janine looks revolting, pathetic, and distressed. For example, Offered describes Janine as pitiful since she tries to fulfill Gilead’s roles. She describes her how she throws herself into the testifying and feels arrogance in describing her rape story and abortion; subsequently, feels guilty when she had done nothing wrong.
The least noble character of Julius Caesar is Decius. There is a plethora of reasons as to why Decius is an ignoble character. First of all, according to the play, Decius lies to Calpurnia and says that her nightmares mean nothing. Next, Decius says he is going to affront and mock another individual. This makes Decius a heckler.
Lady Macbeth is evil, she does things that no sane person would do. Nobody just tells their husband to kill their king because some old hags off the side said that he would be king, that's not how things work in the world. She is evil also because she said: “Come, you spirits that serve the thoughts of mortals: rid me of the natural tenderness of my sex and fill me from head to toe with the direst cruelty!” (I, v, 39-42) in order to have the right amount of “evil” to kill the king, another example is when she is setting up the murder with daggers for Macbeth to kill the king, she says before
For instance in the first chapter of Pride and Prejudice, Mr. Bennet insults women by saying that his daughters apart from Lizzy “are all silly and ignorant like the other girls”. Austen here makes a statement about women and their intelligence. Women themselves show willingness and acceptance of the patriarchal values. They do not resist and acknowledge the belief that men are superior and this is clearly shown in Pride and Prejudice when women accept their fate. At surface reading Mrs. Bennet could be seen as a hypochondriac women but literary theory has suggested that women were seen as inferior and always complaining.
When Macbeth kills Duncan he says that only “the innocent sleep” and he “hath murdered sleep”. Macbeth feels that he is the true murderer but as seen in Lady Macbeth's tortured state after, it presents compelling evidence for her role in it all. She questions her inability to not get the “blood” of her hands, “What, will these hands never be clean?” (5.1.37) and goes on to exclaim that no matter what, no amount of “all the perfumes of Arabia will not sweeten (her) hand” (5.1. 43). Lady Macbeth’s sleepwalking and need to get rid of the blood by washing her hands is ironic considering what she said to Macbeth right after the murder, “Go get some water, And wash this filthy witness from your hands” (2.2.
The concept of maltreatment is made to seem common in normal life. This sends out an anti-feminist message to those who read the novel. Even the main character, Janie, doesn’t regularly stand up to the injuries she sustains. Janie lets Tea Cake whip her, because she loves him. This sends the wrong message to women of the time.
—No more o ' that, my lord, no more o ' that. You mar all with this starting” (V.i line 36-38). Even though, Lady Macbeth had nothing to do with the murders after Duncan, like Banquo and Macduff’s wife as well as his son, she still feels guilty because she created the monster, by manipulating Macbeth to kill Duncan. Another reason Lady Macbeth feels remorseful is because she had to do with some of the action in the murder, for example planning the death of Duncan and framing Duncan 's attendant. The guilt is causing Lady Macbeth to go insane because she is aware “All the perfumes of Arabia will not sweeten this little hand.
In the novella of Mice And Men, although the men on the ranch are threatened by and hate Curley’s Wife, she is actually harmless and treated unfairly by them. Furthermore, George is assuming that because she comes across as a flirt she is a woman who will get men into trouble. According to george, “I seen ‘em poison before, but I seen no piece of jailbait worse than her. You leave her be.” (Steinbeck 32) George states that because he is assuming that because she comes across as a flirt she is a woman who will get men into trouble. He is just assuming and stereotyping women and not meeting the real person.
