Both Beatrice and Benedick go from “hating” each other to loving each other. Beatrice says she likes to remain independent and says she wants to distance herself from love. However, that is not actually the truth because she may try to portray that personality around others, but in this scene when it just her talking to herself she admits that she loves him. Benedick has been hurt by love before, possibly cheated on. This makes him reluctant to show any love to anyone, but he loves Beatrice.
Othello is concerned with his reputation and upholds a strict code of honour both privately and publicly. He dismisses Cassio as soon as he discovers his officer's drunken actions. Similarly, as soon as he suspects Desdemona of adultery, Othello watches her like a hawk. Finally, the act of killing his wife is not an act of revenge for Othello, but of justice. He justifies his actions: "She must die, else she'll betray more men".
Who on earth alive in the midst of so much grief as I, could fail to find this death a rich reward?” (374) Antigone was willing to risk her own life for the sake of her dead brother’s pride. Creon wants Antigone to know that he has control over her. She defied him and now he has no choice but to punish her. Otherwise it would mean a bruise on his reputation as a ruler. It would prove that he was of weak character, especially since a girl went against him.
Iago is unable to confront his guilt about hurting Othello and Mr. Morel is unable to confront his guilt about being an alcoholic. Thus, Miriam gets heartbroken and Desdemona killed because of Paul’s and Othello’s fear of being emasculated. Mrs. Morel suffers and wishes for death and Emilia dies because of Mr. Morel’s and Iago’s guilt and their inability to confront that insecurity. Hence the female character’s demise is at the hands of the male character’s
Usually, it turns out to be the death or a really desperate condition of the controlling person as no one can live a happy life by making others unhappy. Everyone has to pay off for the deeds they perform. Sykes had to pay off for his bad actions when the rattlesnake attacked him instead. Delia ignored his yearning for rescue and silently waited under the China berry tree for his death. It is certainly true that “if someone in your life makes you unhappy than they make you happy, it doesn’t matter how much you love them, you must let them go.
We learned that Macbeth don 't lie or cheat , but he wants the stuff that don 't belong to him and he wouldn 't do what is necessary to get them. His wife said he is too nice to get his hands dirty. Macbeth wife is more like a villain then Macbeth is. Everything she does is all what you would see in a villain. She was the one who planned to kill the King not Macbeth because he didn 't have a good poker face, more reason why he 's a tragic hero.
His murder of Porphyria was his only thought for them to be together and the Duke did not kill the Duchess out of love, but because he was self-doubting. Both women are very flirtatious. Each man wants to own their woman and treat them like an object. This is the only solution why ultimately they take the lives of the women.
Similarly, her infatuation with Desdemona whom she thoroughly trusts heightens the notion that Emilia remains dependent on others. Prior to Emilia's death at the conclusion of this play, Emilia is forced to choose who she truly trusts between the two characters that she has complete faith in. After much introspection Emilia realizes that her husband has been manipulating everyone. At first Emilia tries to prove Iago's innocence and begs for an explanation. Similarly she hates Othello for "laying murders on [Iago's] neck", but as events transpire Emilia realizes that Othello's claims of Desdemona's alleged infidelity all stemmed from Iago.
It’s not the thing itself, but knowing about it is what’s horrible. Othello’s jealousy overpowers his love for Desdemona as he looks over her on her death bed and contemplates “why did I marry”. Desdemona is oblivious to Othello’s jealousy and believes her husband is the perfect guy. Just when you think Othello would come to his senses and realize this is one of Iago’s conniving behaviors, he kills his wife. He believes “she must die, or else she will betray
He trusts Iago with all his heart, he loved Desdemona with all his heart but yet he trusts Iago over her despite her protests. However it is his love for her also that is causing this chaos. Shakespeare portrays a darker side to Othello as he talks about killing Desdemona, in some ways he is talking and even thinking like Iago. Although he does re-think his actions, one word from Iago influences him again. At this point we don't particularly see him as a tragic hero as his way of thinking seems far to corrupt.
