Iago informs the audience that “nothing can or shall content my soul/ Till I am evened with him, wife for wife;/ Or failing so, yet that I put the Moor/ At least into a jealousy so strong/ That judgement cannot cure” (326-330). This is exactly what happens throughout the rest of the play. Iago stops at nothing, killing anyone in his way, to get revenge against Othello. When he talks about being even “wife for wife,” this is foreshadowing for Desdemona’s involvement in Iago’s plan. Also, Iago putting Othello into “a deep jealousy that judgement cannot cure” is foreshadowing for the end of the play, when Iago drives Othello to become so jealous that he acts against his own character and morals to kill his wife, the person he loves most.

Towards the end of The Crucible, Proctor shames himself and confesses of having affair with Abigail. Abigail denies John’s words and says “If I must answer that, I will leave and I will not come back again” (pg. 1207) because she knows that if she confesses now all the work she has put on the line will be done all for nothing, and will make her look more like a fool than she ever was. This quote indicates that Abigail Williams is a selfish antagonist because she is lying about something that is clearly noticeable. Some people may argue that Abigail isn’t the only one to blame, as in there are many others to blame for the loss of many lives.
Without even thinking twice about it, Curley believes the worst of his wife and that she has no devotion at all. The act displays that there is no trust between the two of them and they do not have a strong bond. Ergo, Curley and his wife confirm that loyalty is needed in order for there to be a strong relationship between people. In conclusion, Of Mice and Men effectively shows how important loyalty is between people. Without it, relationships will be broken down to nothing.

Creon finds Haemon, in his last moments, mourning the loss of Antigone, “now among the dead, his father’s work,” as described by the messenger in line 1364.

She accepts knowledge of her end, and lives on with it. As these are some valid points, Creon is the true tragic hero due to his fiery arrogance and even more drastic change in character. When in a heated argument with Ismene and Antigone, he makes a furious remark to the two girls claiming that ”One has just now lost her mind; the other, It seem, has never had a mind at all,” (2.149-150). No noble or fair king would reply in that sense, as it is both disrespectful and mean-spirited. On the other hand, he does go through a humiliating change at the end, now believing in fate and having to face the fact that "[It] has brought all [his] pride to a thought of dust.”(Exodos.138).
