We can observe these untraditional gender roles in Shakespeare's tragedy Coriolanus to a similar extent. Like Macbeth, Coriolanus seems to perfectly embody masculinity at first glance. However, examining his behavior provides a first indication of his incomplete manhood. From the first scene, he displays stubbornness and impatience throughout the discussion with the plebeians, for instance by insulting them as "curs" (1.1.179). This continual balky behavior can also be witnessed when he reacts to his banishment as follows: You common cry of curs, whose breath I hate As reek o' th' rotten fens, whose loves I prize As the dead carcasses of unburied men That do corrupt my air, I banish you!
The first act of Othello is a microcosm of sorts for the entire play. In the first act, the reader sees Iago infect two characters with his evil methods, which are reflections of Iagos’ maneuvers in the subsequent Acts of the play, those Acts which progress according to Iago’s actions.

Although these patterns should be viewed in light of the aggregate of the work, it is in Act 2 that the greatest amount of Iago’s metaphorical speech of disease and infection is found, wherein begins to craft his fatal web.

All of Shakespeare’s tragedies mainly focus on the diversity of humankind’s mind, the ever-prominent traits of human beings – sensuality and affection – the emergence and the development of emotion along with their power to destroy and create things on a much larger scale.
