Kolin observes that Iago stands out among Shakespearean villains since he is the only one to survive his own monstrous acts (25). Unlike Richard III, apart from telling stories, Iago carries out a downright fraud through other means of manipulation, which makes him the most evil and intelligent character. To be exact, Iago is a puppeteer who sets up scenes to deceive the “credulous fools”—Othello, Cassio and Desdemona (4.1.45). Iago talks to Cassio about Bianca while telling Othello that the subject of their conversation is the Moor’s wife. He is so smart and careful that he even gestures Othello to come closer when Cassio is about to illustrate how Bianca entangles him.
Yet Romeo and Juliet 's love is one that transcends the orthodox realms of society and goes against what is socially appropriate. Even Friar Lawrence makes this distinction when he speaks of the difference between loving and doting. This is the difference between Romeo 's feelings for Rosaline and for Juliet.

Juliet too, shares similar feelings which is displayed in her soliloquy, thinking of Romeo: “My only love sprung from my only hate!”

Deception characterizes the comedies Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night and Some Like It Hot, bringing humor to life through physical and mental delusion. The film Some Like It Hot follows two Chicago musicians during the Prohibition era who, after witnessing a mafia crime, disguise themselves as women and join a Florida-bound female band to escape the wrath of mob leader Spats Colombo. Its predecessor, Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, recounts the arrival of Viola on the shores of Illyria following a shipwreck that leads her to believe her brother has died, as she disguises herself as a man to work for the local Duke Orsino.
Deception is defined as a scheme to get what one needs in a dishonest way. The act of deception is one of the themes of the novel, The Maltese Falcon. It starts from Miss Brigid telling Mr. Spade that her sister had run off with a man called Thursby to San Francisco. This act is seen as a deception because she was not telling the truth. Miss Brigid was being deceptive because she wanted Spade and Miles to think that Thursby is a dangerous man and in the process, when she kills Miles, she will be able to frame Thursby easily.
A manipulator. Now that sounds really harsh if you call someone that to their face right? But almost everyday in our lives manipulation has taken place. It’s just a human impulse of ours.
