Dramatic tension i... ... middle of paper ... ... takes no notice and calls Eddie an 'animal'.

However, I think that how Eddie got killed should have been more dramatic, because the audience could have predicted what would have happened as soon as Eddie pulled out the knife and the source of weapon used should have been a gun as it is more dramatic.
Othello and Iago The tragedy "Othello" by William Shakespeare is a story based upon the revenge of two characters, Othello and Iago. These two characters help to prove Murphey's Law which states that if something wrong can happen it will: for Othello it is the wrongful killing of his wife and friend, for Iago it is getting caught for his actions and finally being tortured. Many historians, actors, and readers would like to argue that Othello and Iago are very complex but at a closer look you will notice that their actions are purely based upon revenge for their iniquities. "I follow him to serve my turn upon him," said Iago (9:45). From the beginning of the story Iago has a cruel intent bent on destroying Othello merely because the job that he sought after was given to young Cassio.

This creates aggression from Marco throughout the play and results in various conflicts between himself and Eddie in which Marco demonstrates his masculinity over Eddie this makes Eddie feel threatened and insecure. Eddie has many different things that he considers to be manly e.g. "to be a breadwinner". He feels that Rodolfo does not conform to his idea of masculinity because of the way he cooks, cleans, sings and makes dresses. Which at the time of the play would not be considered to be things done by a man.

All in all, noise and abuse with a few exceptions repelled Kafka as shown by Gregor, the monstrous vermin. All things considered, the story draws parallels from Kafka’s personal experiences which further develops the plot of the story. Kafka demonstrates the tumultuous relationship with his father through the physical abuse and neglect of Gregor in the novel. In addition, he reflects the way society viewed him and his family through the Samsa’s. Lastly, the animosity towards the ubiquitous noise present in his house throughout his life is exaggerated with Gregor.
