In fact, he asserts that as a result of all the treatments women were using to deceive it was hard to tell whether the woman was “a human face , or an ulcer” (Fiero 162). He despises the devious actions and hateful plots the women concoct against those distasteful to them. He believes that “there’s nothing a woman won’t do, nothing she thinks is disgraceful” because of her deceitful feature (Fiero
Prince Creon is reluctant to allow Medea to remain in his kingdom for he knows that she is “a clever woman, very experienced in evil ways.” (331) Medea has a reputation for being sneaky and cunning in order to cause suffering to those around her. Prince Creon knows that by granting Medea a sliver of time it could come back to haunt him. The little time given to Medea allows her to create a plot of revenge that will hurt her enemies and loved ones. When Medea kills her children, the Chorus Leader tells her that she is a “hard and wretched woman, just like stone or iron.” (1517) The Chorus Leader is shocked that Medea would follow through with such a horrific deed. She calls her “hard and wretched” because she now knows that Medea will do anything, even the most unthinkable things, to cause her enemies and eternity of pain.
Shakespeare Macbeth (1606), tells the catastrophic story of Macbeth’s bloody rise to power and then tragic downfall. (Harcour, 2016) Shakespeare, conveys a theme that integrity can be overpowered and destroyed by ambition. The theme is demonstrated throughout the play by the clever use of literary devices and language features. Shakespeare focuses on how Macbeth’s integrity is damaged and diminished due to his ambitions. At the first stage, a Captain describes Macbeth as a loyal subject dedicated to serve King Duncan.
Through the welcome feast that the Kilongese throw at the beginning of the book, Kingsolver creates an impression for the reader that perhaps the Prices will get along with the natives; however, she shatters that possibility with the meal that follows. This first meal of the book is extremely important because it acts as a harbinger of events and trends that will occur in the rest of the novel. Before the actual food is revealed, Kingsolver has Rachel
She first began to reveal her sociopathic tendencies in Act I, Scene VI when she lied, without remorse, to King Duncan -- flattering him as she plotted to end his life. This scene exposes two key indications of antisocial personality disorder in the character: pathological lying and disregard for the effect her actions have on others. As the act continues, Lady Macbeth further justifies her ASPD when she states (in Scene VII) that she would willingly kill her own child -- “I would, while [the child] was smiling in my face, have plucked my
While the maids voice their opinion about Penelope and pretend to be her, they display their viewpoint on what Penelope’s actual actions are: “Point out those maids as feckless and disloyal, / Snatched by the Suitors as unlawful spoil” (Atwood 150). In other words, the maids accuse Penelope of saying awful things about them so that they are killed. Again, the rhyming shows that the maids claim this, not Penelope. Their perspective is that Penelope turned on them when Odysseus returned home, even though she loved and supported them. Based on what they know, they conclude that Penelope indirectly tells Odysseus to kill them; she does not want them to share her secrets.
In short, these letters have proved that since she is jealous of her victims she tries to disrupt their way of living so she can feel superior. Also as a person is immersed with jealousy they can be blinded by their actions because they are solely focused on torturing their victims they too can become the victim of their actions.

This is evident when she states that Goody proctor is “ a cold, snivelling woman” where it is encouraged to believe that Elizabeth Proctor is a nasty person, however Abigail is not as innocent as she claims to be.

Abigail goes to great lengths to get what she wants,
She is your typical bitchy, sexy and not so smart kind of girl. Basically, all looks and no substance. Jules’ character in the movie was just to expose her body, have sex and be punished and killed brutally. The movie was sexualizing her in a weird way. She’s the easiest one to hate of all the characters.
“Now look you… I will come to you in the black of some terrible night… bring a reckoning that will shudder you… I can make you wish you had never seen the sun go down”. In order to save herself she did extreme things; she made people fear of her, that way people would obey. In act II, she accused Elizabeth Proctor of witchery; she said that Elizabeth used poppets to damage her. Abagail Williams had a horrible obsession with John Proctor; she invented false testimonies in order to keep away Elizabeth form John. The fact is that because her name was pure in Salem, almost everybody trusted her.
Hurt by how Roxie had turned on her and had even been watching her have sex with her man in her own home, was the ultimate betrayal to Racine. Assuming jealousy had always been Roxie’s problem this reality had not been lost on Racine. She allowed this talkative bitch to free her damn mind. Roxie spoke to Racine with her arms crossed about her chest. To Racine it appeared that this bitch really thought she had her this time.
