In Shakespeare 's Othello, Iago’s sinister acts of lying and killing deceive the people around him. Iago motives are maintaining good reputation and ruining othello.

The following essay will argue and explain Holden’s view on authenticity, phoniness, truth, and his quest for answers to all his existential questions. Holden Caulfield in Catcher in the Rye is a wealthy adolescent who cynically rejects the superficiality of post-war America and no longer tolerates the empty values of his society, therefore in his personal view he regards superficial people as “phonies”, for they are neither truthful towards their selves nor authentic. In Holden’s quest of self-discovery his view on truth is recognised when he feels sorry for pretentious liars like Lillian Simmons and has a strong sense of fairness as he tries to correct injustice and unfairness. On this existential self-discovery quest, Holden finds himself questioning life and gains enduringly endearing qualities which establishes his views. The perception of authenticity can be described as the notion that people ask questions about the substance of directorial standards of society, and consequently they discard certain behavioural enigmas of the society which they belong to.

The eighth quote is “ they were in terms of the long,hard path I had to walk to this path.
Finally, Twain mirrors the flaws of his own self-centered 19th century society through the world of his fictional book. In Huckleberry Finn, lying is a self-serving act that everybody does. Despite the idea that many readers see Huck as a moral sinner, he ultimately lies for his own self-interest and protection. With Huck as the narrator, the reader is more likely to sympathize with him and his motives and agree with his thoughts and morals. But, if Twain told the story from the perspective of a character whom Huck portrays negatively, the reader could realize that his or her motives are similar to those of Huck.
Lord Chesterfield’s letter to his son goes far beyond what is typically expected of a parent addressing a child. The good natured advice is therefore trampled by the presumption that Chesterfield’s son simply will not live up to his potential despite the advantages he has been given through education and status. Chesterfield imposes his own morals and values by toying with the guilt of privilege, contradicting himself and making a mockery of failure, consequently, presenting his advice as the only acceptable recourse. The first paragraph is underlined by the use of irony, however the high level of writing and expertise prevents this from overwhelming the reader. Originally Chesterfield downgrades his own advice by addressing the common
‘Jesus Christ’. He put down his razor, and all of a sudden jerked his arms up and sort of broke my hold on him.” (pg 39) Holden is really a hypocrite also from the research paper, “This establishes Holden’s own sense of hypocrisy: although he condemns the behavior of the class to which he belongs, he shares their behaviors and even accepts this value system as reasonable.” (pg
Also, this image implies how fake eyes spy on people, molding the notion of that people create their identities to impress others. Another great use of personification in ‘’The murmur trembled on the verge of coherence, sank down, mounted excitedly, and then ceased all together’’ (Fitzgerald 14). On the other hand, Fitzgerald uses hyperboles to highlight things in an escalated matter, for example: ‘’ Jay Gatsby ... sprang from his Platonic conception of himself. He was a son of God ... he must be about His Father's Business, the service of a vast, vulgar and meretricious beauty ‘’ , the expression seems to very overrated, yet it brings attention the struggle of
(1.3.424.55) Meaning that Iago knows that he's able to use Roderigo unwillingly and get him to do his dirty work for him. Iago States to himself. Castle is a good man but he still wants to deceive him so that he may become lieutenant. Iago convinces Roderigo that Desdemona is in love with Cassio and that Roderigo should help him Cassio removed from his job as lieutenant and the two come up with a plan to get Cassio drunk and make him fight so that Othello will remove Cassio as lieutenant. Being that Roderigo is blinded by his love for Desdemona and the lies of Iago, Roderigo willingly helps, not realizing that Iago only wants to help himself and he'll do anything to do so, even if he has to manipulate the minds of innocent people around him.
Huck lets the two lie and cheat because allow them will give him less trouble than if he were to confront them. Since he let them continue, they put on fake plays, such as Romeo and Juliet, and lie to strangers to earn money by saying they are a “changed man because of God” during a camp meeting. Twain shows how twisted the world is by using these characters to show how being morally wrong can take you farther than being a good person. As shown previously, Twain expressed his opinion on morality in various ways in Huckleberry Finn. He showed how the stereotypes during this time were not accurate at all, and how they can be broken.
