While these two characters continue to misread people’s words, advisors around them repeatedly give hints to their misinterpretations, which pave the road for possible reconciliation. The realization of their mistakes, however, occurs after tragedy is inevitable. Gloucester and Lear, create their eventual downfalls due to their inability to read deceit. Though these characters share the same tragic flaw, the means by which they make their errors is completely different. Gloucester remains a poor reader because he is quick to believe his sense of sight.
The mood is tense when we find out that Brabantio is angry that Othello has taken his daughter. He is determined that Othello must have tricked Desdemona into loving him. Othello defends his love for her, and she in turn vows her love for him. This situation of a forbidden relationship is romantic, it makes the reader feel a great deal of respect and happiness for their mutual love. When Iago begins poisoning Othello’s mind with false suspicion of Desdemona’s fidelity, the mood is extremely frustrating.
The Taming of the Shrew, although written as a comedy, contains certain moral ideas and themes that should not go overlooked. One of these questionable ideas is the actual “Taming” itself. Throughout the story, Petruchio persistently torments Katherine, treating her almost as poorly and terribly as she treats others, in hopes of causing her to surrender to him. This creates such brokenness within Kate that she does eventually submit to Petruchio. Yet one cannot help but question his strategy: Is his cruelty, although she seemingly deserves it, morally right?
Henchard has an affair with her before Susan arrives in Casterbridge, and this affair ruins Lucetta’s reputation. To try to repair the damage, Henchard, thinking that Susan is probably dead, offers to marry Lucetta. Before the marriage takes place, though, Susan returns, and Henchard must call off the wedding. After Susan dies, Lucetta inherits wealth, and Henchard renews his interest in her. Lucetta is more interested in Farfrae, though, and marries him.
Othello eventually accepts Iago’s proposition, Othello has no rebuttal to the idea that his wife is dishonest and his love for her quickly turns to hatred. “She’s gone. I am abused; and my relief must be to loathe her.” Othello’s love for Desdemona is 2 sided with one side being love and the other side being complete hate. Othello’s nobility is crushed in act 3 as it shows us a weak non-elegant Othello that was portrayed at the start of the novel, the idea that Desdemona is cheating rips society’s ideology out of his mind and he no longer care for his
‘I find you passing gentle’. However he later contradicts what he has previously said as he claims to be repeating what others have said. This leads the reader to believe that his flattery isn’t genuine as he has already planned what he is going to say to Kate. He is flattering her with reverse psychology but saying that everything harsh she does is kind. Kate’s behaviour already in the scene contradicts Petruchio ‘If I be waspish best beware of my sting’.
Sweet Desdemona, Let us be wary, let us hide our loves, â€¦Sweet Creature!". Iago tells Othello that they shared the same lodgings, but what Othello doesn't realise is that there was no time for these 'love hours' to take place. This shows us how Othello is not using his mind, unlike a lieutenant would, is depending completely on his emotions. This has a huge effect on the audience, we feel Othello losing his control over the matter, and we can see how he is so deluded that he cannot see Desdemona for the "true wife" she is, but instead as a "cunning whore of Venice". Othello says "But this denoted a forgone conclusion", but Iago who is prepared and at the ready.
The story fabricated by Iago about Cassio and Desdemona’s relationship was created out of convenience. The ultimate goal for Iago is to trigger Othello and cause him to grow incredibly jealous under the premise that his wife was having an affair. Iago being the careful thinker he is, doesn’t let a good opportunity to sow a seed of doubt pass. So when he and Othello see Desdemona and Cassio, he made comments about what their intentions might be. This, though small, made Othello consider that his wife may in fact be cheating; this was important because it sowed a seed of doubt in Othello’s mind.
In Othello by Shakespeare, Iago, being the manipulator, starts out jealous of two other characters, Othello and Cassio. Iago later manipulates Othello to think that his wife and Cassio are having an affair. Othello who is being casted the perspective of the false truth, he understands the stereotype the society has toward his skin color and loosen his control to find the real truth and believes the false truth from Iago. Iago deceive truth in a way that the false truth is casted onto Othello and other characters, confusing Othello in the path to the real truth. Othello faces blockades that exist throughout the story which tragically affect his actions, as blockades are cleared, Othello regrets what he has done as the real truth is revealed.
He knows that he lies and pretends to like people that he would rather not be with. (Pg 125) “… I told her I loved her and all. It was a lie of course…” His bitterness is a shield against his reality, a reality he doesn’t like at all. Yet at the same time Holden really wants to communicate with people. (Pg 66) “ I damn near gave my kid sister Phoebe a buzz…” He is torn between the two ways to act and cannot reach conclusio...
