These decisions led to seclusion from society and the ones they loved.

The trust bond shared between Othello and Desdemona had been broken due to the lies that were being fed to him which ultimately led to the death of both their lives. In Shakespeare’s Othello, a wedding based on a lie,
Or did she betray her lady or duly serve her husband? I truly do not know if I believe that Emilia redeemed herself in the end because she is the person whom put the handkerchief in her husband’s hands which pretty much caused this entire tragedy to happen all together. Of course it never would have happed without Iago’s hatred and revenge on Othello so it is easy to say that one would not have happened without the other. I think that the problem here is Iago he is the one who put all these thoughts into her head to do these things for her husband and had he not done this when Desdemona dropped her handkerchief in the first place she would have picked it up and told her lady as soon as it happened. Emilia duly did serve her husband throughout the play until she sees the light of how horrible of person that her husband truly is, and that she had a part in this of has happened.
This is exactly what Gatsby does to attract Daisy, and like Gatsby, Kane gets it completely wrong. His second wife is becomes unhappy with all these gifts, and expresses to Kane, “you don 't really love me, you want me to love you!” This is precisely the sad truth about the protagonist.

Kane 's wife leaves him, and he is left with one thing he does know and that’s “rosebud”.
This does not include the fact that she lead Gatsby on throughout the whole entire book. Gatsby gained feelings for this women that only wanted to get revenge on her husband. This action by Daisy is disgusting in the way that Gatsby loved this women so much that he was willing to die for her but all Daisy wanted was revenge on Tom for what he had did to her. Leading someone on, especially to the extent that Daisy does is utterly disrespectful. Daisy knows how in love Gatsby was for her and yet claims that she is in love with Gatsby also but is using him to get back at Tom.
Shakespeare further portrays men to be the instigators of betrayal, as Hamlet forgets that he ever loved Ophelia. Through, being overcome with intense hatred and anger at his mother, Hamlet denies ever having loved Ophelia, and orders her “to a nunnery”. It is Hamlet who instigates such betrayal, as he previously says “My fair Ophelia- Nymph” through “Nymph” Hamlet is describing Ophelia as a beautiful maid, thus highlighting his love for her. Yet, his attitude thereafter is considerably callous, as he continually questions Ophelia on her “honesty”. The continual questioning reflects that of a grueling and in part contributes to Ophelia’s later madness.
At this point, she still doesn’t know that Claudius killed her first husband, but it still causes her grief about whether marrying her husband’s brother was the right thing to do. Her dilemma of having to choose one man over the other is driving her to insanity because she can’t pick just one of them. Certainly she loves both of them or at least that’s what she thought, but Hamlet’s father is her true love while Claudius is the brother of her husband that just so happened to become king after his brother died. In short, she doesn’t know her true feelings for either person. Gertrude feels confused and overwhelmed by everything that just unfolded in front of her.
Their unhealthy relationships led to their demise due to the lack of support they were receiving from their partners emotionally. Codependent relationships are unhealthy one-sided relationships, George and Lennie exemplify this due to Lennie’s reliance on George; while Curley and his wife exemplify a counter-dependent relationship due to their avoidance of love and sentimental attachment. The imbalance in affection and effort between these two pairs leads to their untimely end, Lennie being too attached, and neither Curley or his wife being attached enough. Due to Lennie’s disability, he leans on George to help him with a variety of simple tasks the readers are led to believe he cannot complete on his own. This leads to an unhealthy attachment to George as Lennie believes he cannot function without him.

Jean, I agree with your response and I aslo think Curley 's wife is very flirtatious around other men because her husband doesn 't give her attention. Curley 's wife can behave carelessly because there 's no other female around, she feels lonely and has no one to talk to. A good example of this situation can be on page 78 when Curley 's wife was talking about her violent husband. Caroline, I agree with your response. Back then there was racial inequality.
