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. He runs off “weeping fully” (121) when he discovers the scarring truth of whom he once thought to be great. Due to Willy’s egotistical nature and the need to feed it with a mistress, his downfall begins in the eyes of Biff.
Othello is a highly respected general and is also married to the pure Desdemona. The marriage between Othello and Desdemona is destroyed due to Iago’s actions and lies. His actions consist of getting Michael Cassio discharged as lieutenant and convincing the Moor that his wife is cheating on him. The motives Iago has for despising Othello are he passed him over for a promotion to be his lieutenant, instead he chose Michael Cassio, and then he has suspicion that Othello slept with his wife, Emilia. Iago is miserable with his life, so he is going to make everyone else around him feel his misery.
Furthermore, Hamlet’s misogyny continues as he disrespects his own mother, as he states, “She married—O most wicked speed! To post / With such dexterity to incestuous sheets” (1.2.156-57). Despite his uncle Claudius being half the relationship, he continues to solely blame his mother for the act. Hamlet continues to hurt others for no reason, disturbing natural order. Additionally, Hamlet murders people for no good reason.
An example is when Iago seeks revenge against Othello and Cassio because of his anger and jealousy. Person vs. society appears when Desdemona's father Brabantio, disapproves her marriage to Othello because he is several years older than Desdemona, from a different class, and a different race. An internal conflict of person vs. himself is found when Othello is in a dilemma about whether or not should he believe that Desdemona is being unfaithful to him. Othello loves and trusts Desdemona until his jealousy is aroused by the cruel manipulations of Iago. Iago's intention was to persuade Othello to believe that Desdemona is having an affair with Cassio.
At the beginning of the play, Othello assigns the lieutenant role to Cassio rather than Iago, who is Othello’s close friend. Iago believed that he was more qualified as a lieutenant, which led him to develop anger towards Othello. Also, Iago was convinced that his wife, Emilia has cheated on him with Othello, and believed that the only way to get back is to corrupt his life. This rage led him to plot an evil scheme to ruin Othello’s life as he says, “[…] put the Moor at least into a jealousy so strong that judgment cannot cure” (2. 1, 300).
For instance, in the play Othello, Othello is passionately in love with his wife and when he hears a disturbing rumor about her, instead of thinking over what he heard or if it is true, he let his jealousy take over his actions. In Othello, Iago, Othello's dear truthful friend, wants to ruin Othello's life by "plaguing" his mind of depressing thoughts. He plans to tell Othello that his wife, Desdemona, is cheating on him with his ex-lieutenant, Cassio. "At least jealousy so strong that judgment cannot cure." (p. 79, Iago) Othello being passionately in love with Desdemona begins to believe the rumors he is told, and it breaks his heart.
She is so dejected that she faints, and everyone assumes she is dead. Eventually Borrachio is overheard talking about Don John’s plan, and Don John is arrested. Later Claudio learns that Hero is not actually dead, and they are finally married. “Othello”’... ... middle of paper ... ...io merely humiliated Hero. Iago seeks revenge on Othello for two reasons: he suspects Othello slept with Emilia, and he also despises Othello for choosing Cassio as lieutenant instead of him.
Furthermore, towards the end of the play Keller begins to show how remorseful he feels, this is delineated when Chris turns against him and Keller starts “pleading” with him. The noun; “pleading” shows a... ... middle of paper ... ...ore pain. Mother acts blinkered to the truth when Jim tried to draw the truth from her. Mother acts as being unaware and asks; “tell him what?” which to stop the truth getting out and ruining their reputation. When Jim says; “it takes a certain talent… for lying” which suggests to the audience that Mother is corrupt, which also implies Miller believes America to be corrupt.
He wanted to be with Desdemona badly and because Othello married her without consent he is jealous of him. This begins Roderigo's resentment to Othello, and his thoughts on ruining him. Also, since Othello has married Desdemona without Barbantio's approval. Roderigo helps Iago with his plan to make Desdemona's father aware of the situation, due to the fact that they both want to sabotage Othello. Iago says to Roderigo, "Call up her father,/ Rouse him.
Claudio, Hero’s appointed spouse, is the most responsible for Hero’s death. With his gullibility, Claudio immediately believes what Don John told him. Don John reveals that Hero is unfaithful to Claudio, and they should not get married in order to protect Claudio’s reputation, “I came hither to tell you, and circumstances shortened—for she has been long a-talking of—the lady is disloyal.” (III, ii, 96-98) When Don John said that they will visualize the evidence at Hero’s chamber window tonight, Claudio promises that he will shame Hero at the wedding if he sees anything inappropriate. This shows Claudio’s pessimistic personality, always thinking negatively of the woman he loves. When Claudio is tricked by Borachio and Margret, he becomes angry and shows his resentment by disgracing Hero at the wedding, “There, Leonato, take her back again/ Give not this rotten orange to your friend/ She’s but the sign and semblance of her honor” (V, i, 30-32) Claudio’s harsh words could be a large contribution for Hero’s death.
