As mentioned, the Marxist approach deals with heterodoxy or a desire for possessions which in this case, is Olivia. The ‘social order paradox’ is evident also, as Malvolio, Olivia’s administrator, attempts to transgress the boundaries of order through ‘love’. Even though Malvolio features as a secondary character, his presence is very much important in the ‘social order paradox’. A trick is played on Malvolio, where a number of the other characters inform him that Olivia has asked him to wear bizarre things. The importance of this prank refers to the issue of class mobility that audiences of the time would have identified with.
Now, Roderigo thinks Cassio likes her too and vice versa. He feels pressured to protect against their love. In order for Roderigo to remove Othello and Cassio out of his way he listens to Iago’s evil scheme. Roderigo must get into a fight with Cassio because he is competition and, so he loses his reputation and his post as lieutenant. Roderigo has been forced by Iago to sell all of his belongings to pay Iago in false hope of getting Desdemona and to carry out evil.
Another example is when Iago state, “What, man, there are ways to/ recover the general again” (2.3.259-260). In this quote Iago draws Cassio into believing there are ways to his position back on Othello’s good side again. Both quotes show Iago using his credibility to get on the good sides of both characters, increasing his reputation as a good friend/guy. Due to this increase, Iago can activate his plan with little to none suspicion and Iago can also manipulate Othello easily. Therefore, without the increase in Iago’s reputation and the trust others have in him, Iago wouldn’t have been able to accomplish his plan of bringing Othello to believe Desdemona is sleeping with Cassio which would’ve changed how Othello reacts.
Boccaccio exceeds the role of women, contrary to church teaching by depicting women as patient, more lustful, and more intelligent figures than men. Women in The Decameron are portrayed as being more long-suffering and more independent than men. Although it does not apply to all the female characters, Boccaccio demonstrates that women can endure difficulty easier than men do. Basically women do not have the enough power to overcome the whole problem that they tolerate hardship. The Bible, however, asserts on the equality of gender on the matter of patience.
For example, he wanted to flee Paris when Hella got home from being abroad because of Giovanni. Hella then meets Giovanni and confronts David with questions asking about who Giovanni was and how he knew him, David becomes offensive and talks down about Giovanni. For example, when she questions why running into Giovanni in Paris would bother David, he says, “Well-I can’t do anything to help him and I can’t stand having him watch me-as though-I’m an American, Hella, he thinks I’m rich”(135). In this sense, David is
Iago traps Roderigo in an inescapable relationship in which Roderigo is just a puppet controlled by Iago. It is clear that Iago has no emotions because he cheats Roderigo out of his fortune, neither does he regret it nor does he feel guilty. Furthermore, Iago uses Cassio’s trust in him to his advantage and pretends to be his friend while he tarnishes his reputation behind his back. When Iago speaks to the governor of Cyprus, he fabricates the idea that Cassio is an alcoholic and “He’ll watch the horologe a double set, If drink rock not his cradle.”(2.3.116-117). Although Iago pretends to be a good friend, he deliberately defames Cassio in front of Montano.
Boccaccio was one of the first great Humanist writers to influence the modern world with his influence still strong in today’s society. To begin, at the time “The Tale of the Falcon” was set, life in Italy was nerve-racking and overwhelming because of the Bubonic Plague and the Renaissance. The Bubonic Plague caused immense changes in culture. The streets of Italy
Roderigo has offered money to Iago in the to believe that Iago is using his money to pave the way to Desdemona's bed. Which is nothing of Iago’s plan that is learned later. Roderigo wanted Desdemona. He would do anything for her because he was in love with her. He paid Iago to get Desdemona for him.
Inigo repeatedly repeats to himself, “Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya and you killed my father. Prepare to die.” The phrase summarizes Inigo’s thirst for vengeance with Count Rugen. As a child, Inigo respected his father as a person who had created the most wonderful sword for the six-fingered Count Rugen. Out of nowhere, the Count came with the sword to Domingo complaining about the swords condition and refused to pay the entire amount. Due to anger, Count Rugen killed Domingo and devastated Inigo’s life.
The Things We do for Love (A Discussion on the Messages in Falcon) Giovanni Boccaccio was a writer during the 1300’s. His literary works influenced another important writer Chaucer. “Boccaccio's literary production is characterized by an unusual versatility; his work, both in prose and verse, contains a variety of genres, many of which were pioneer ventures, destined to exercise a powerful influence on succeeding generations”(Bergin). Boccaccio works with human universal themes of love, loss, deception, fate, and honor. In his literary work Federigo’s Falcon, Boccaccio describes some of these human universal themes.
