Claudius gains Gertrude 's trust by showing a concern for Hamlet craziness and tries his best to be caring to the queen.
There were many reasons for the tragedy in the shakespearean play Othello. But the biggest reason was the brilliant, cunning, sneaky, manipulative mastermind Iago. Because he had all of these qualities and his relentlessness to fulfill his goal to destroy othello he is the only person at fault. Iago is the only person at fault for what had happened to othello, desdemona, emilia, and roderigo (also cassio but he ended up getting a better life after all of this was done). The reason iago did what he did was because othello promised him a job as lieutenant in the venetian army and then went back on his promise to hire Cassio as lieutenant who not only was not a soldier he also was not from venice he was from florence and that made iago mad, and
The king’s greed and self loathe are his fatal flaws that ultimately lead to his downfall. Instead of doing things honestly and fair Claudius is a character who would rather play dirty and scheme behind peoples backs to find quick and easy solutions to his problems.Overall Claudius deceived his best friend, his nephew, and his wife to try to end up on top and in power but he ended up losing everything he had almost the exact same way that he received through a tragedy caused at the hands of another
Unfortunately, Courtland gets his hands on Eddie and by doing so, it threatens to compromise Eddie’s moral compass. Once Eddie realizes the extent to which Courtland’s wickedness goes, he regrets ever interacting with Courtland. He realizes he needs to choose his friends more wisely, and he should never let a bully jeopardize his values. To further complicate their relationship, Courtland leaves Eddie to die by locking him in a storeroom and abandoning him teaching Eddie not to trust too easily and to be especially cautious of those who are not reliable. Strangely enough, even though Courtland has proven his immorality repeatedly, Eddie still has compassion upon him: “I didn 't even like Courtland, he had tried to kill me 一and still I felt tears running down my cheeks” (358).
He does not realize what his fate is because he is too busy trying to get revenge on Polynices. Creon’s hamartia, or fatal flaw, is his inability to listen to anyone. He is too stubborn and self-centered to listen to the people telling him that what he is doing will lead him to destruction. When someone tells him what he is doing may be wrong, he turns his cheek and ignores them. Creon’s son, Haemon, tells his father that he should let Antigone go.
(Knowles). Gene wanted Finny to get in trouble for what Finny had did, which had worn his tie as a belt.

Hamlet is a very sensitive, moody person, very much in awe of his deceased father, who obviously didn 't care about his image or he wouldn 't have feigned "madness". Oedipus was a very passionate man, passionate about his position, his wife/mother, people of Thebes, and passionate about his concern for Polybus and Merope. Hamlet shows no genuine love for anyone except for his father and maybe his mother, but this is questionable because he would 've killed his mother had the ghost instructed him to. Even when Hamlet declares his love for Ophelia, he later claims it 's not true. He is, however, passionate about killing Claudius.
Pride often leads to someone’s downfall - this idea has been developed from the playwright “Oedipus the king” through Rey’s interactive oral presentation. He discussed that Oedipus’ excessive pride over his knowledge due to solving riddles allows him to not listen to others including the respected Prophet , his dear relative Kreon - he seldom pays heed to them and decides to pursue further for searching the predecessor’s murderer . His own path opens up hidden , dark truth about his life. From the presentation it has been evident that Oedipus was not smart enough to realize that the path he set for himself, will eventually bring nothing but pain. Oedipus guaranteed to the citizens of Thebes that he will definitely cooperate, and banish
