This fools uniform contrasts sharply with Montresor who was wearing a cloak complete with an eerie black mask to further portray his villainous form. Fortunato, who had apparently caused “a thousand injuries” to Montresor, foolishly agreed to trust Montresor and go to his house (14). This action is clearly absurd. Fortunato interpreted Montresor’s “you are luckily met” as amicable and that Montresor was happy to see him. However, Montresor despised him and is only happy to see him to murder him later.
He causes much destruction and is driven by a force that the reader cannot even understand. Iago makes himself an outsider by not realizing that his ego causes him to hate and disrespect all of humanity. Iago respects no one and yet is cunning enough to make people continue to trust and respect him. This is a truly super human quality in Iago that allows him to manipulate people to do what he wants without them knowing. He is married to Emilia, and although the reader would see marriage as a sacred bond, Iago manipulates it for his selfish ways.
“The Cask of Amontillado” is a short story by Edgar Allan Poe. This story is about a man who commits murder because he was insulted. The saying, “Revenge is a dish best served cold” means that revenge is best served not fresh after the insult occurred, but after enough time has passed so that the target won 't see it coming. Montresor is the man in this story who is repeatedly getting offended by a so-called “friend” named Fortunato. Montresor has had enough of the insults and wants to plot revenge against Fortunato.
Although the contact is just a slight intrusion, Oedipus, outraged that someone would have the gall to trouble him "paid them back with interest" and "killed everyone of them, every mother's son". In hindsight as he recounts the incident to Jocasta he is not remorseful for the loss of life nor for his part in the crime. Instead, Oedipus' tone is one of satisfaction that he got revenge. Had his arrogance not interfered, Oedipus would not have made the rash decision to kill all of the party and would not have satisfied the prophecy. Oedipus' self-confidence blinds him to the impossibility evading fate predestined by the gods.
Although Willy is justly punished for his crimes, Field fails to go into the depth of Willy’s crimes. The extent of Willy Loman’s corruption makes his crimes far more severe, for he has left his family in shambles and to continue to be his future conduits. Willy Loman’s addiction to his own delusions have made him curse his sons to the same amoral mind frame that he had put on himself, and continues to use against his wife, while still feeling convinced he is a well liked person that deserves to be treated better than he treats others. Willy Loman receives a deserving punishment for many reasons, but the lesson he leaves behind to his sons is one of the most everlasting to his family. Field in his article claims “what he has taught them does not look to him like what he had wanted them to learn” (21), but Willy’s failure is that Biff and Happy have learned exactly what he has taught them their whole lives.
Godfrey’s actions also back this idea up as he, “bit his lips and clenched his fist”. I Feel Dunsy is very villainous when he talks about being such “a good natured brother”. He also blackmails Godfrey when he says “You’ll take any trouble for me. You’ll get the hundred pounds for me – I know you will!” this seems like he is threatening Godfrey and instead of asking for the money he is demanding it like he is the master of Godfrey. I feel sorry for Godfrey when he starts quivering and explains that he “hasn’t got a shilling to bless his self with” this implies he is weak.
After countless injuries that Fortunato presents to Montressor, he still endures them all. However, Montressor’s jealousy eventually gets to the best of him when he relentlessly describes, “When he ventured upon insult, I vowed revenge. You, who so well know the nature of my soul, will not suppose, however, that I gave utterance to a threat. At length, I would be avenged…he did not perceive at the time that my smile now was at the thought of his immolation” (Poe 3). Although it is not directly stated, it is clear he is jealous of Fortunato’s rights of insulting him and desires to relinquish this insult, whatever it might be.
The Horrific Ending to Poe's The Cask of Amontillado End of the story is horrifying and shocking: Montresor traps and entombs living Fortunato behind the brick wall. The victim cries to the executioner: "For the love of God"(Poe, 214) but the only respond is ironical repeat of his own words. The story contains very strong and drastic images. Live burial practice is beyond any critic and "was once a practiced form of capital punishment. The historical context of this practice may indicate that Fortuanto wounded profoundly his friend.
Othello had the right idea in a lot of things in his life, but if you have tragic flaws like he did, he was doomed from the beginning. Iago may have had the last laugh, and orchestrated the madness, but in all honestly Othello was truly to blame because he was weak, controlled by jealousy, was an easy target, and eventually let Iago have complete control of him. Common sense should have saved the day, but Othello seemed to be lacking this critically. All in all, Othello was truly to blame for his own demise , his own destruction. He caused his own death, and well now, he isn’t coming back.
He is ruthless and he murders those who come... ... middle of paper ... ...m to hate the world and soon make the Media Luna into a desert. He is willing to continue his cruelty but he knows that it will ultimately get back to him, it will cost him and most importantly, he will have consequences. The deaths that were caused in his world ruined him, ruined his want to feel emotions or change. The deaths in his childhood and adulthood made him indifferent to the emotions that he was feeling. Ultimately, the father and son, truly depict Nietzsche's Theory of the Übermensch as they feel that they are superior, almost as if they were god.
