And I feel at this moment, the audience truly realize that he can never escape this tragic spiral into damnation. Overall, we have seen how Marlowe uses this section of Dr.Faustus to present the tragic traits in Faustus’ character, and most importantly to highlight his flaws, and how they show the gradual failure of his plans. It deals with important contextual issues, such as the limitations and implications of over ambition shown in Mephastophilis blunt offerings – which Marlowe demonstrate the consequences of over-reaching yourself. It also presents us with the Morality play idea, by using the Good and Evil angels to present Faustus’ inner struggle of good versus evil, which he cannot overcome.
Hamlet explains that during the extremely rotten time, Hamlet, who is good and of virtue, must beg pardon to and get permission from Gertrude, who represents vice by committing many sins, to do good things such as urging her to repent. As a method for salvation, Hamlet asks her not to go to Claudius’ bed. Then he apologizes for the death of Polonius and admits his own fault. However, he insists that Polonius and he both are punished because God has made him the agent to punish Polonius with him and him with Polonius. He takes the responsibility, and explains Gertrude that he is cruel only to be kind to her and warns that worse things are yet to come.
With Roderigo, someone he commands control over, Iago employs pathos, allowing his plan to appeal to Roderigo’s sensitive emotions about Othello. Roderigo and Iago discuss about how each of them despise Othello when Iago says, “If ever I did dream of such a matter, / Abhor me” using pathos to confirm his hatred towards the General (1.2. 5-6). The play commences with Iago employing direct rhetoric and partnering up with Roderigo to enhance a sense of comradery. Harsh language such as “Abhor me”, exemplifies the hateful emotions Iago feels toward Othello as well as enhances the emotions Iago wants to appeal to in Roderigo (1.2.
For he is variously referred to as: Cut-throat dog, bloody creditor, inhuman wretch and cruel devil. This makes the audience feel that Shylocks malice and evil is forced upon him by the abuse he receives. So it would not be fair to say that he was totally evil as there are points in the play that Shakespeare wants to make us sympathise with him; "If you prick us do we not bleed? If you tickle us do we not laugh? If you poison us do we not die?"
He goes on to mock and ridicule her by deeming her as “a demon. A man must be pure just so that [she] can seduce him to a fall”, which reveals the possible truth behind Hester’s actions (Lawrence). By using negative diction, he ultimately reduces her status to such a villainous state, which implies to the reader that Hester has no worth, and should be punished for such a deep sin. He pokes fun at the character, and once again uses sarcasm and a ridiculous pretense. His utilization of pessimistic diction is the key toward illustrating the wicked appearance of Hester
We must reinterpret him in light of the germane thought of our own age.-James Driscoll Images and allusions to sex and death are intermingled throughout John Milton's Paradise Lost. The character of Satan serves as not only an embodiment of death and sin, but also insatiated sexual lust. The combination of sex and lust has significant philosophical implications, especially in relation to themes of creation, destruction, and the nature of existence. Milton, in Paradise Lost, establishes that with sex, as with religion, he is of no particular hierarchical establishment. However, Milton does not want to be confused with the stereotypical puritan.
Firstly the darkness on the stage will give the audience a sense of foreboding. This would increase the tension.. Shakespeare has intentionally used this contrast of black and white for dramatic impact. The colour black of Othello and his clothes will be seen as a representation of evil. The colour black is symbolic of badness and the fear of the colour is used even in literature, for example ‘black mail or ‘black hole’, where as the white been seen as good with phrases such as ‘whitewash’ or ‘whiter than white’. Othe... ... middle of paper ... ...k on thy sins’ and Desdemona replies ‘They are the loves I bear for you.’ This shows the audience the love of Desdemona is.
Iago is the epitome of evil. He uses Othello’s innocence to his advantage and although Othello has been “eaten up with passion”, Iago is also passionately jealous of Othello. However, Iago’s downfall is due to his intense jealousy and results in his trust in Emilia. Eventually, both good and evil fail and neither succeed. Perhaps Shakespeare is trying to send a message to the audience here - a message that suggests that all there is good and bad in everyone; the bad brings out the good and the good brings out the bad.

Most of what is vile in human nature is demonstrated in the play, but the most profound darknesses in human nature is the ego and desires. Shakespeare has a deep understanding of the ugly side of human nature and he exploits it into many of his writings.
At the end of the play, Malvolio makes a final threat of “revenge”; this could be a reference to how the puritans closed down the theatres in 1642. I will explore the character of Malvolio before ending to conclude my thoughts on the question. The character Malvolio is always negative and has a disagreeable nature which carries on throughout the play leading to his downfall and mockery which, in my opinion was deserved due t... ... middle of paper ... ...ative features he holds. I don’t think Malvolio is a bad person, in my opinion it would seem that he is miss-understood. Malvolio is a devoted servant of the household, he is a very good butler and extremely loyal to Olivia.
