Manliness, Hostility and Aggression are obvious themes though out the play and they are all very closely linked. Because of Eddies views on manliness he is Hostile towards Roldolfo from as soon as he meets him. This then leads to aggression between Marco and Eddie, which ends in Eddie having his life taken from him all because of his shallow views and poor education.
Iago is a man who uses jealousy against those around him; however, this jealously seems to be what fuels his own loathing in the first place. Iago’s jealously is first shown at the beginning of the play when he is speaking with Roderigo about the Moor. He says: Despise me If I do not. Three great ones of the city In personal suit to make me his lieutenant Off-capped to him, and by the faith of man I know my price, I am worth no worse a place. (I.i.1165) In other words, Iago believes he deserves the position of lieutenant, but Othello has different plans.
This is evident when Eddie calls Immigration to 'snitch' on Marco and Rodolfo. It highlights Eddie's desperation and loss of rational thinking as he acts on the contrary of his own strong beliefs, which he outlined at the beginning of the play with the consequences of Vinnie Banzalo's betrayal. The characters are all involved in very tangled relationships. Beatrice is jealous of Eddie's love for Catherine. "When am I gonna be a wife again Eddie?"
They are illegal immigrants looking for work in order to fund their families at home in Italy. Rodolpho and Catherine seem to like each other, which upsets Eddie, as he seems to love Catherine for more than just a daughter or niece. This ultimately leads to the downfall of Eddie. The ideas of manliness, hostility and aggression create conflict in the play as Eddie and Marco are both battling to be the man of the house. These ideas also create conflict between Eddie and Rodolpho because, in Eddie's eyes, Rodolpho does not live up to the expectations of what a man should be.
Eddie is the play’s main character who has very distinct views on what a man should be like. He feels it is necessary for a man to be aggressive and to use violence in order to state his authority and power. This is evident when he asks Catherine “What’s the high heels for, Garbo?” Eddie asks this in a very sarcastic manor, however, he is fully aware that he wants things his own way. Eddie also considers bravery and the reputation of the male to be vital in a man’s personality. This is shown by the way he battles Marco nearer the end of the play, not to make friends but to restore his reputation.
He is well-liked by people in his small town, as Ann says, "People like to do things for the... ... middle of paper ... ...-one other young pilots. However, there are many in the audience who like Joe would think that Chris has had things too easy and is making much ado about nothing. It is Joe Keller for whom the audience feels the greater sympathy and respect because he was a great man, who made a fatally flawed decision, which continued to haunt him through life. He finally understood the meaning of life within family and the society in which we all live in and that is that you cannot make flawed decisions which impact others and get away with it. When Joe realises this, he is brave enough to pay the price for his mistake, and that is what makes Joe a hero in the audience's eyes.
Iago is always looking to justify himself and his hatred because it annoys him that he does not know why he despises Othello so much. We cannot rely on speeches of Iago talking to other characters because he is not always acting himself; most of the time he is just putting on an act. In his soliloquies however, we can see what Iago is really like. Iago’s first reason for hating Othello is because Cassio was given the job as lieutenant which was the job that Iago sought after. We can see his sense of inferiority, as he feels resentful of rewards and promotions when he is not the one receiving them.
(5.2.16). This tells us that the failure of the letter not reaching Romeo is a mistake as people are anxious about the infection, which they may catch. In the play Friar John has a very small role, but nevertheless must take a part of the blame. The Prince has to be fair and look at both sides of the arguments, which take place between the two families this is his job. When the fight between Mercutio, Tybalt and Romeo breaks out he tells both sides of the families, Immediately we do exile him hence (3.1.187) With Romeo banished for killing Tybalt, this splits the two lovers up.
The Elusion of Authority: The Consequences of Hypocrisy in Othello Othello explores the discord between voiced principles and subsequent behaviors, while revealing that Othello’s failure to adhere to his principles defines the failure of his pursuits. His fears are self-fulfilling in that he passionately acts against those he believes have belittled him, and is viewed as dishonorable as a result. In prioritizing his desire for Desdemona, authority, and respect above his morals, Othello ensures the loss of all he seeks. Perpetually an outsider in Venice, Othello’s status impacts much of his life and greatly influences his courtship of Desdemona. Though officials respect him—which is proven by the first senator’s mention of him as a “valiant
Iago has been to blame for the downfall of Othello because he is the one that created the jealousy within Othello. Iago started this because he was jealous of Othello because he was not made lieutenant, and Cassio was. Iago has been selfish and takes it upon himself to get revenge against Othello. Iago has been excellent at saying the what is needed to get to people, he misleads them to get a reaction he wants out of them. He is clever with his words to avoid confrontation that can easily happen.
