By "pour[ing] this pestilence into his ear", Iago contaminates his thoughts. Once Othello starts to doubt Desdemona's fidelity, he is so incredibly driven by jealousy that it leads him to murder her, ironically with poison. Many references are made to animals in the play. Iago uses beast imagery to express his contempt and to downgrade those he despises. Early in Act 1, he rouses Brabantio's anger by using crude images of animals fornicating to inform him that his "daughter and the Moor are now making the beast with two backs."
She evidently proved with Frankenstein that isolation leads to a terrible fate; that being his monster destroyed his family which resulting in him falling onto the roads of evil and hatred by dedicating his last days to seek revenge against the monster. Undoubtedly Shelley proves through the monster that there exists a direct causal relationship between isolation from family and society causing hatred and evil; even though he was kind hearted and had good intentions, his isolation caused him to bereave and turn evil and vow hatred towards mankind, particularly his creator Frankenstein. Through these characters, Shelley shows the reader that association with family and society is important and deprivation very well can lead to an individual becoming evil and vowing internal
in Bok 8). The critic herself refers to the Creature as a monster, revealing that she has prejudices against it. As soon as the Creature is given life, it is unfairly rejected by its creator for its deformities. Unfortunately, this reason for rejection is very common in society, and looked down upon by Shelley because of the negative tone that she employs by incorporating disapproving words. Victor conveys his instant thoughts about his creation when he says “...I beheld the wretch--the miserable monster whom I had created,” (Shelley 44).
Golding is making Jacks growing savage nature blatantly obvious, as he ignores the need for shelter and simply wants to go hunt down pigs. The hunt is no longer merely a source of gathering food but has transmuted into the only activity of interest and fulfillment for jack and his hunters. Now a complete savage Jack has acquired a thirst for killing and hunting. This thirst, and abso... ... middle of paper ... ...t from wrong. Along with Piggys fall goes the Conch, the biggest symbol of civilization, now a nearly innocent boy and all civilization has been lost.
269.). He also compares her to “the sea-monster” (I. iv. 268. ), by which he possibly means a mythological monster that would betray its own father. King Lear also comments on his daughters ingratitude using animal imagery when he said,” How sharper than a serpent’s tooth it is to have a thankless child” (I. iv.
However, he goes on to commit two other sins as he lusts and goes off "in secret" with his own daughter. Sin, in turn, gives birth so painfully, she describes it as such, "breaking violent way/Tore through my entrails". The sins within the family are further compounded by Death who rapes his mother. Sin in turn give birth to howling dogs that forever cause her pain. Milton's allegorical representation here works with the rest of the poem because it is the most poignant example of Milton's misogynic attitude.
Lear sees Goneril as being nothing more than an ungratefully child with a beastly attitude (Lind). Shakespeare shows how money and power are usually the root of all evil and can affect a person ethical values and moral judgment. Albany must have been blind by love when he married that witch! As for Lear, a father by blood has no choice but love her and her evil sister. Regan, Lear 's middle child, keenly fulfills the role of a deviant woman by demonstrating a violent nature, "first by plucking poor Gloucester 's eyes out, and then by killing her own servant" (Teach).

Instead, it is Iago, while in his attempts to prove the Moor a beast, exposes himself as the true animal in Othello. From the beginning of the play, we are aware of Iago's lack of human compassion. He tells Roderigo that "Ere I would say I would drown myself for the love of a guinea-hen, I would change my humanity with a baboon", or that he would rather be an animal then give his life for someone else or for the sake of love (1.3.314-316). As the play moves along, Iago becomes more and more beast-like as his determination to destroy the Moor intensifies.
The most terrifying death is that of Simon, who symbolizes the eyes of a blindfolded and stumbling people. He alone saw that the jungle, which represented freedom and the lack of civilization, was not to be feared but to be understood; he alone knew that the mythical Beast of the island, feared by all the boys, was in fact their own inherent savagery. (The title, Lord of the Flies, is in fact a translation of "Beelzebub," a name of the devil in the Judeo-Christian tradition). In a vision, the Beast told Simon: "Fancy thinking the Beast was something you could hu... ... middle of paper ... ... his fear, his compatriots' savagery justifies that weakness. If his flaw was his desire to be accepted, then he was no different from any of the other boys.
Along with the real world, the novel and the memoir emphasize that jealousy is a destructive emotion. Jealousy twists characters’ hearts, harms through symbols, and causes dreadful turns in the plots. Bottled up, the green-eyed monster can trigger craziness. Unleashed, the beast creates destruction.
