A story about deception, illusion, impulsiveness, noting, and shallowness; these are all characteristics of the play Much Ado about Nothing by William Shakespeare. The play is about a young women, named Hero and a man, named Claudio, falling in love almost immediately after the war and decide to marry in the next few days. However, the prince’s evil brother does not wish to see his enemies rejoice, so he organizes a ruse to shame Hero and halt the wedding from ever taking place. Shakespeare critiques many aspects of his society through his satire and portrayal of different characters; which is apparent when looking at the character Claudio. Claudio is a soldier who worked closely with the Prince and became one of the top men of his army.
The extreme level of sorrow that Romeo is feelings is indicative of the type of person he is. Romeo states, “He that is stricken bling cannot forget, the precocious treasure of his eyesight lost. Show me a mistress that is passing fair, what doth her beauty serve but as a note. Where I may read who passed that passing fair?
Throughout the play Othello’s blind trust in Iago led him to a perplexed state in which he was vulnerable to flaws that he did not usually struggle with. In a perplexed state Othello “becomes jealous and eventually a murderer” (Kliger 222). Without Othello’s blind trust in Iago Othello would never have become perplexed and would not have led to flaws that resulted in the murder of Desdemona. Othello recognized his growing problem as he said “There is no more but this: Away at once with love or jealousy” and yet Othello was still unable to shake his jealousy as Iago kept feeding him lies (Shakespeare III.iii.222-223). Othello became so jealous that he began to think he would be “happy if the general camp, pioneers and all, had tasted her sweet body, so [he] had nothing known” (Shakespeare III.iii.397-400).
He tried to fool the wives, but the wives ended up fooling Falstaff. Falstaff carries on the theme of lies that soon will get him into trouble at the end. Falstaff describes many archetypes, uses the hero circle, and illustrates that lying and money are evil. In his ordinary world, Falstaff is a knight who is portraying the lover archetype. His goal is to earn money in the easiest way, possibly because he is not getting a job.
In a logic explanation, it is right for a child to repulse adult sexual advances (Thorne 108). Since Humbert was the adult, he controlled money and regularly threatened Lolita with an orphanage when she refused his advances, but in his delusion, Humbert interprets Lolita’s silence and compliance after a threat as an invitation or seduction. He finally murdered Quilty, whom he believes turned Lolita against him. He further justifies his action by arguing that Quilty destroyed Lolita’s innocence, which is an evident act of denial. Undoubtedly, Humbert was responsible for corrupting Lolita and taking away her childhood and innocence.
Othello becomes jealous of Michael Cassio, when he suspects he is sleeping with his wife. “At way at once of love or jealousy”(131/220) Othello lets his own insecurities create a false image of his wife Desdemona letting the “Green-eyed monster” into his head. This becomes a problem for Othello because he can no longer hide his jealousy and starts to take it out on people. When jealousy sneaks into his life, it turns him into a completely different person and he can no longer control his anger, towards Desdemona and Cassio. “Jealousy has far thou taken over” Othello has no more room for any emotions and just lets the emotion of jealousy consume him.
Iago has a desire to destroy the lives of Othello and Desdemona because he thinks that Othello slept with his wife. This makes Iago villainous because he is planning destruction. Iago’s goal is to devastate Othello’s life to seek revenge. Iago possess pernicious traits because he destroys his life and marriage, as well as the marriage between Othello and Desdemona.
