Animality and Beauty in Shakespeare's Othello - Othello - Animality and Beauty  At the most superficial level, the view of Shakespeare’s Othello as ‘animality and darkness’ in opposition to ‘beauty and light’ seems justified if the audience considers the 'motiveless malignity' of Iago against the pure, seemingly perfect union of Othello and Desdemona. This assumes that the 'animality and darkness' is to be found in the villain and the beauty and light in the love of the tragic hero and heroine as well as in the latter's physical beauty. There is ample textual evidence for this most basic of views, most effectively demonstrated in an early conversation between Iago and Othello's lieutenant , Cassio, by all accounts an honourable gentleman, in IIiii....   [tags: GCSE Coursework Shakespeare Othello] 569 words

Property - The Koran describes a prejudice attitude toward women. The women are regarded as chattel and reduced to the status of domestic animals.

A less easily discernible case is the persecution of Mr. Dolphus Raymond, who chose to live his life in close relation with the colored community.

Comparing The Jewel in the Crown and Wuthering Heights - Similarities in The Jewel in the Crown and Wuthering Heights       "He stood a stranger in this breathing world, An erring spirit from another hurl'd... What had he been?  What was he, thus unknown. Who walked their world, his lineage all unknown.                                     George Gordon, Lord Bryon (1788-1824)     This except of a poem from the Romantic period could be used to describe two characters from two different works of different time periods.  Heathcliff - the "dark-skinned gypsy" with the "manners of a gentleman"(WH 5) is the villain/hero of Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights (1847) and Hari - the very English, Hindu-Indian, outcast/hero of Paul Scott's The Jewel in the Crown (1966) share many common characteristics.  Both represent a lower class of dark-skinned people that are disadvantaged by the times and societies that they live in.  Each fights outward prejudices as well as their own inner battles to determine self-worth.  Heathcliff and Hari find themselves in love with white-skinned women who represent the superior class in their societies - the relationships lead to tragic ends that testify to the destructive power of color constraints placed on love.  The characteristic similarities found in Heathcliff and Hari must then lead to the comparison of the women that they loved - Catherine and Daphne.  Both women spent their formative years without the influence of their mothers; they both were living essentially orphaned lives - although to a lesser degree than that of the men that they loved.  Each of the four characters had experienced the loss of Father and Mother and their characters were profoundly shaped by these losses.   Catherine and Daphne each exhibit the qualities of a Byronic heroine by rebelling against social, religious customs and the constraints of society (cagatucci RomReal.htm).  The women are self-centered and rebellious, to their own detriment, and both ultimately die as a result of giving birth to daughters (who carry the hope and promise of greater wisdom and opportunity for full lives).  Their men display the Byronic characteristics of anger and resentment, which are fueled through the complex and frustrating relationships they are in.  Both Heathcliff and Hari experience injustices that fan the flames of their hatreds and put them each on a collision course with a tragic destiny....   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays]
