For instance, when Hamlet states, “Get thee to a nunnery. Why wouldst thou be a breeder / of sinners? I am myself indifferent honest, but yet I / could accuse me of such things that it were better my/ mother had not borne me” (3.1.121-23). He tells Ophelia that he doesn’t love her, which was cruel and uncalled for, even if Ophelia is not completely innocent in this situation as she is spying on him by her father’s orders. Furthermore, Hamlet’s misogyny continues as he disrespects his own mother, as he states, “She married—O most wicked speed!
It’s so phony” (106). Certain words cause Holden to repel people, based on the deceit that he thinks the word carries along. Feeling as if he is drowning in a sea of falsehood, Holden constantly find himself feeling depressed because nothing is what it is trying to be. When Holden feels as if some sort of purity is threatened he assumes a bitter, angry tone. When Stradlater, someone he knows as very sexually intimate, went on a date with Jane, Holden’s childhood friend, Holden became so angry that he reacted physically: “I got off from the bed… and then I tried to sock him, with all my might, right smack in the toothbrush, so it would split his goddamn throat open” (43).
Often, Rochester tricks her into answering questions in a way he deems unsuitable, simply to chastise her. He does this when he questions her about her mother’s death and again when he calls her dressing habits into question (Rhys). Rochester adds to his horrible treatment of Antoinette when he has sex with Amèlie. According to Rajeev Patke, “[h]er husband’s deliberately casual adultery with a coloured servant in Antoinette’s house distastes and dispossesses her of the only place she had learned to identify herself with as her natural habitat and patrimony” (192). Serving as the ultimate betrayal and reinforcing the bitterness and trust issues that Annette drilled into her head, Antoinette becomes more unstable.

1, 300). This shows how Iago wants to ruin Othello’s life by making him jealous and blind his judgement. His uncontrollable hate towards Othello can be reflected through the song Rolling In the Deep, “but I’ve heard one on you and I’m gonna make your head burn” (33). These lyrics show how Iago is trying to take advantage of Othello’s weaknesses, which is severe jealousy. From early on in the play, Iago’s aggravation was obvious although Othello was oblivious due to his anger towards Desdemona.
When sneaking a peak at the queen, however, Gyges does not go unnoticed. The queen, feeling ashamed, for “with the Lydians…it is thought highly indecent even for a man to be seen naked,” devised a plan for revenge upon her husband (1.10). She manipulates Gyges and gives him an ultimatum: he can either kill Candaules and take over the throne, or kill himself. Gyges decides that
By having an affair with a woman who has chosen him, Willy is able to fuel his overinflated ego. The need to constantly feed his ego is caused by the tragic flaw of pride which hurts his son Biff’s future. Biff is heartbroken due to the fact that his idol and father commits such adultery.

Women were generally, uneducated, confined to their homes, and seen as “objects,” To Euripides, the subjugation of woman was an injustice. However, Medea was written as part as a competition, and the audience would only be made up of men. Thus, the language and expressions used would have to be crafted to hide the true meaning of the play. For example, in a misogynistic interpretation, Medea’s infanticide would be a man’s worst dream: “they ultimately affirm male anxiety about women by launching a violent and excessive attack on the male and his male children” (Folley). Then, it follows as such that Medea could be seen as a heartless and illogical women, willing even to sacrifice her children for her husband’s misery.
Sex debases men. They begin to struggle when they feel they are losing control of their emotions in any way. For a woman to easily change the way a man feels or the way he acts just by being female and attractive is enough to drive men insane. William Shakespeare's plays, Othello and Hamlet, demonstrate on paper, on film, and in other art forms that female sexuality and beauty are a threat to patriarchal society and that they must be controlled. Showalter affirms this in her essay by quoting David Laverenze's essay, "The Woman in Hamlet."
