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.
what he discovered impacted him and ultimately ended with him being a tragedy due to his hubris actions which lead to his downfall, the cathartic effect that leaves the audience sympathizing with him, and his ignorance. Oedipus is portrayed as a tragedy because of his hubris actions that lead to his downfall. Oedipus believes he can change his own fate and run away from his own prophecy. The play, "Oedipus King Sophocles" translated by David Grene, Oedipus states that "he sent his rascal prophet to me since he keeps his own mouth clean of any guilt", this quote shows how Oedipus 's pride is getting in the way of believing the truth and reality. oedipus believes that they 're trying to point the finger at him.
He was betrayed by his own friend, and out of arrogance, chose to ignore warnings. While pride is a fair trait, too much can blind one to see the danger of situations. The tragedy of Julius Caesar conveys several important messages that we grasp from characters and
There is no question that there is evil within him, and that evil is his own ambition to stay on top. In Act 1 Macbeth kills Duncan and the king’s two guards, he then kills Banquo, Lady Macduff, her family, and Young Siward. He becomes a cold-blooded killer without any influence from his wife. She can no longer be held accountable for Macbeths horrible actions. Macbeth does not seek the guidance of his wife, nor her advice to commit these crimes; his actions are his own doings.
Greek tragedy, according to M.H. Abrams, is a representation of serious action which results to a disastrous conclusion for the protagonist. Aristotle, on the other hand, also argues that tragedy involves a hero, a man or a woman, who is more moral than we are. He or she goes through reversals of fortune from joy to suffering because of his own tragic flaw called hamartia which is the error of judgment or his own hubris which is pride. Tragedy fills the reader's emotions with pity and fear as the tragic hero is judged unequally and is stricken by misfortune which he does not truly deserve.
The play, Antigone written by Sophocles, presents a tragedy that fits the classical definition, but it is the story of Creon, the king of the main character. Creon starts out as the king of Thebes , Creon’s tragic flaw is his pride and his arrogance which caused him reflecting upon his mistakes making him a broken man, recognizing what he did to his niece, he is a character within Antigone, even though he was portrayed as an antagonist he was the main character since he was. Creon’s tragic flaw, hubris, causes his downfall. Creon will not listen to anyone. He is stubborn, and his pride is so great, he cannot bring himself to acknowledge that he could ever wrong.
That being said, it is ignorant to say that his fatal flaw is the sole reason for his downfall, as there were many contributing factors such as his jealousy and insecurity that factored into it. Nevertheless, his gullibility is ultimately the root cause as it enabled for these factors to come into effect. His fatal flaw is first pointed out by Iago, who comments that “The Moor is of a free and open nature/ That thinks men honest that but seem to be so” (1.3, 392-393). As the play progresses, Iago capitalizes on this weakness to plant seeds of doubt in his mind of Desdemona. Iago points out that “[Desdemona] did deceive her father, marrying you” (3.3,204), and thus brings to Othello’s attention that Desdemona is capable of lying.
Humiliation may have been deserved, as he humiliated his peers, ruined their fun, and treated them poorly on a regular basis. He did not deserve to be locked up and tricked to the extent that he was, he is rude and unkind but he is only human and most of his issues probably stem from a sense of insecurity at his lack of status and ability to get on with his peers. He has an inflated self worth but it seems as though it could be a façade. He deserves retribution for the way he treats the people around him but the trick played on him by the people he bothers is
William Shakespeare's play Othello uses irony to present the central message that reputation is not an accurate evaluation of one’s character, for manipulation is very prevalent throughout the plot. Varying types of irony are used as Othello, Emilia, and Desdemona all are not able to grasp reality with the information that is presented to them. Iago takes away what is truly occurring to improve his own standings while shattering others. Emilia was unaware of her husband's intention to sabotage as she exclaimed, “I tell you, it makes my husband so unhappy, you’d think it was his own cause”(Shakespeare 155). Furthermore, on a superficial level dramatic irony was used as Emelia was blind to Iago being the cause of the predicament.
And at its climax, the chorus, representing his Theban people, disavowed King Oedipus and his contributions to Thebes saying it would have been better without him. These acts combined drive the humiliated Oedipus towards self-punishment, exile, and to his piteous, shameful fate. Sophocles in Oedipus the King puts the idea of truth and knowledge in the spotlight of Greek and modern audiences. Although Oedipus himself meets a collectively negative end, the power of truth is revealed through his misery. Some things are best left to the Gods rather than in the minds of men, it would have been to Oedipus’ ignorant bliss.
