293). This statement means that Othello believes in Desdemona?s honesty and loyalty so much that he would give up his life if she were untrue. This is ironic, because later on in the play... ... middle of paper ... ...nation of situational, verbal, and dramatic irony is very useful in creating an overall feeling of loss and catastrophe in the play. The role of irony in the play is to create the loss of a great potential in the play. The audience can see that because of Othello?s tragic trust in Iago, miscommunication occurs and disaster follows.
Does Prospero truly forgive those who "hate" him? His reaction to Antonio speaks volumes: For you, most wicked sir, whom to call brother Would even infect my mouth, I do forgive Thy rankest fault, -- all of them; and require My dukedom of thee, which perforce, I know, Thou must restore. (5.1.130-4) Prospero goes through the motions of forgiveness, but his sincerity is lost to us. Moreover, there is clearly no reconciliation amongst Prospero, Sebastian, and Antonio. Prospero still considers Antonio a "most wicked sir" (5.1.130) and Antonio, focused on slaying the island fiends, will not even acknowledge Prospero.

After all I come to the conclusion that the statement of King Lear about himself is not really accurate. My opinion is that Lear’s sins weight stronger and the sins against him are the pure results of his own doings. His rage and temper and pride have made him send away Cordelia and so is he responsible fore her fate and death in the end.

As for their motives, they are vaguely defended. So, The Cask of Amontillado qualifies extravagantly for a good mystery narrative. Therefore, a story cannot be cataloged “horror” unless it is written taking into consideration factors like fear, mystery and suspense.
Emilia does this "to please Iago’s fancy"( 3.3 lines 290-295). By the time Emilia realizes her horrible mistake, Desdemona is dead which could possibly be partly due to Emilia's misgivings. Cassio’s love and admiration for Othello leaves him constantly striving to regain Othello’s love and respect. Even after being demoted by Othello, Cassio still loves and shows the utmost respect for Othello by saying "I would rather sue to be despised than to deceive/ so good a commander with… so drunken…officer." Love is the central emotional attitude in the play, Othello.
One cannot help but feel sympathetic towards King Lear in his times of misery and madness, but there is always the shadow of his earlier egotistical antics that resulted in carnage. It is true that Lear has caused his own woes, but it seems that his problems allowed him to die a man with a soul of greater substance. This is a result of the madness and suffering, when a King becomes a man and understands concerns and needs of others. He also partly gains redemption in reuniting with Cordelia and accepting culpability, to a certain degree. Perhaps King Lear is “more sinned against than sinning” and perhaps deservedly so, but it is true that he died having learnt important lessons and so his suffering was surely not in vain.
As Lear realises his foolishness in bannishing Cordelia - his "joy" and the only daughter who truly loves him - we sense Lear's increasing sorrow and despair. By revealling his "sin", he is subjecting himself to punishment. Perhaps it is a deserving motion, since he had passed judgement and punished Kent and Cordelia for coming between "the dragon and his wrath", that is, him and his power. Now the gods above rightfully control Lear's destiny, abiding by the process that man has to suffer to gain peace. At this particular moment, Lear is still unaware of Kent's identity, disguised as Caius, ever since he bannished Kent for defending Cordeila's thoughtful choice to "love and be silent".
Othello was convinced he was acting nobly when he was committing his actions even though he was not being a noble character. Othello’s character embodies having a strong sense of nobility and dignity throughout the play. As Iago deceives Othello he loses his nobility contributing to his downfall. Othello’s reaction to murdering his wife is when he realises that he is at a very low point, and almost can’t escape to reality anymore. ‘My parts, my title, and my perfect soul shall manifest me rightly.’ The quote used to brand Othello to his word is quickly seen as ego instead of elegant talk.
Desdomona has loyalty for her friends "Makes her plead for Cassio's reinstatement and therefore increases Othello's suspicions of her unfaithfulness" Desdemona: I assure thee, If I do vow a friendship, I'll perform it to the last article (Act 3 Scene 3) Desdemona has kindness and goodness, which makes her unsuspecting of Iago's evil plans.

Another similarity that links the two characters is how they chase after their own desires.

By analyzing Cassio and Roderigo’s similarities and differences, one can see Shakespeare’s theme of how ignorance, whether it be words of advice from others or just indications, can lead to one’s downfall. Cassio and Roderigo both play an essential role in showing how being persistent to attain what we want is not always the correct approach.
