Iago affects the characters’ lives in a negative way by his honest reputation, his ability to “read” people, and how he “proves” to be Loyal. Iago’s honest reputation and his two-faced personality ensnares the protagonists into his plan. Initially he gets the character to think that he is generally honest and then builds that small reputation up to a bigger one so then he can spill out lies to trick them. He seems to be honest through his actions when he is in
“Harken! and observe how healthily - how calmly I can tell you the whole story.”(Poe 1) To explain this quote in detail the narrator is explaining to the reader that he is able to explain his thinking while planning the murder. In this short story the caregiver of an old man believes that he wants to kill the old man to rid himself of the old man’s vulture eye. Furthermore when the police come to check up on him he creates convincing lies to declare his innocence, but shockingly later he confesses to the murder, because of his guilt. In Tell-Tale heart by Edgar Allan Poe the narrator is sane and guilty of murder because, he pre-planned killing the old man, he was fully aware and conscious of what he was doing, also the narrator was extremely cautious and smart about killing the old man and hiding the body.
The Journey to Self-forgiveness of a Morally Ambiguous Character Guilt is like a scar; it is a painful reminder of an unpleasant situation and is ugly until accepted and moved on from. However, unlike some scars, guilt can dissipate over time as individuals learn to forgive themselves for their wrongdoing. Guilt, along with self-forgiveness, is frequently seen with morally ambiguous characters, such as Amir from Khaled Hosseini’s novel The Kite Runner. In the story, a young Amir fails to protect his friend Hassan from the antagonist, Assef, which results in the profound guilt that follows him into his adult life. Eventually, he finds a way to forgive himself for his misdeed, as do readers.
But in that story carnival brings the death of Fortunado and this is the second irony here. In the other story “The Tell Tale Heart” the irony is more witty. The protagonist is a madman yet he always claims the opposite. The biggest irony in this story is the moment that the narrator confesses the crime to the police because of the feeling the heartbeat of the deadman and thinking that he is not dead though the police did not even doubt
Using the exploration of the theme of hatred, Shakespeare reveals Orsino 's conflicted emotions through symbolism. Throughout this point in the play, he is presented to feel a sense of betrayal because he is embarressed by Olivia 's lack of internest in him. Previously being characterised as self rightous and obsessed, this embarresment is magnified. A tone of frustration is crafted through Orsino 's pitiful complaint claiming his soul "breathed out" faithfull offerings Olivia did not accept. The use of personification here exaggerates Orsino 's devotion to Olivia which she apparently doesn 't appreciate.
“The Tell Tale Heart’s” narrator began the short story with an engaging line, talking about how he has not gone mad. The whole story was surrounded by darkness. This was mainly portrayed by the narrator’s constant talk regarding the murder that he just committed. The narrator was convinced he was sane and had every reason to take apart of the action that he recently did. The idea alone of murder demonstrated maliciousness and pure evilness.

Voluntary manslaughter is frequently called a "warmth of energy" wrongdoing. Deliberate homicide happens when a man; is emphatically incited (under circumstances that could comparably incite a sensible individual) and murders in the warmth of energy stimulated by that incitement. For "warmth of energy" to exist, the individual must not have had adequate time to "chill" from the incitement. That the killing isn 't viewed as first or second-degree homicide is an admission to human shortcoming. Executioners who act in the warmth of energy may murder purposefully, yet the passionate setting is a relieving element that lessens their ethical blameworthiness.
However, Holden gets upset and starts talking poorly of him once he hears this, and later excuses himself with a lie he made up to leave, showing both his self-defence mechanism and his skepticism towards people he liked. Also, when Holden wakes up to Mr. Antolini patting him on the forehead in the middle of the night, he tells us of similar “perverty” stuff that happened to him multiple times as a child. Therefore, he clearly struggles to trust anyone he both meets and knows, which shows his insecurity and skepticism of others. Another instance of this is Holden’s relationship with D.B. Although Holden says that they were once close, he now considers D.B.
