According to SparkNotes, “Rousseau believed modern man’s enslavement to his own needs was responsible for all sorts of societal ills, from exploitation and domination of others to poor self-esteem and depression” (“The Necessity of Freedom”). The philosopher’s intuitive thoughts can be summarized in his quote, “Civilization is a hopeless race to discover remedies for the evils it produces” (“Jean-Jacques Rousseau Quotes.”) In contrast to Rosseau’s profound beliefs, William Golding suggests that people are brought into the world with darkness lurking deep inside their souls. Humans are wicked by nature, and the powerful regulations of civilization create the strong foundations necessary to contain the gruesome monsters living inside each and every human being.

Shakespeare and Golding have much to say about man's sinful nature. Both of these writers have conveyed in their works, Macbeth and lord of the flies, a similar game of survival, power, corruption and pure evil. Furthermore in both pieces main characters die; their deaths come about as a result, consequently because of their sinful nature and the pure greed of others around them. Human beings thrive on competition, subsequently such factors can change the way we think, the way we act as humans and how we treat others. In edition these authors use characters, particularly Jack and Macbeth, as examples of man’s self-corruption by letting our natural greedy self-centred self’s come through.
A criminal is someone who violates law for the purpose of obtaining their desires, causing in the breakdown of society. This definition is both clear and complete. Criminals are known mainly for their craftiness and bent character. They use this quality to intrude on the privacy of others, thus resulting in the acts of violence or sinfulness. These unlawful individuals are what society deems as offenders, convicts, villains, thieves and much more.
Maybe a wrong was done to him that went unjust, and this story is just his fantasy of getting revenge on that person. Could it be that Poe wrote this story as a kind of statement telling of a scenario of unkempt emotions and tempers? Who knows? The fact remains, whatever the case maybe behind the writing of this story there is no doubt that it is a dark and very disturbing tale.
Ultimately, actions speak louder than words. Iago is evil in his actions towards Othello, but between the two, Othello is the most evil for reacting to lies in the most violent of ways. The evil in Iago becomes visible from the very beginning of the play. He explains at the beginning how he was passed over for the position of lieutenant by Othello, who gave the position to Cassio. This gives Iago cause for not only hating Othello but Cassio as well.
It is this that causes Macbeth to abhor himself. The play explores the tensions between Macbeth's proneness to evil and his abhorrence to evil. Macbeth is a tragic hero because he becomes caught in tensions between his criminal actions and the reaction of his conscience. Had Macbeth committed the deeds without any remorse, he would have been simply an evil monster, without any hope. But it is his conscience about evil that makes him tragic.
From the wasting disease of the lady Madeline, to her brother's nervous affliction, one discerns a tangible connection with their dark family home. As it weakens, so also do both brother and sister diminish, until both finally perish in a horrible demise no less fantastic then that of their house. And it is these singular features which have contrived to brand the tale upon the mind of the reader, and so inspired generations of both readers and writers. There can be no doubt that future readers will also be inspired by this tale of the horror and mysterious connections between a house and its inhabitants, “The Fall of the House of Usher.”
The destructiveness of the monster is self-created and “feeds on” Othello’s heart. Simultaneously, Othello feels guilty for being jealous of Cassio (without a concrete reason) and that shame that builds up in Othello will eventually be unleashed in the form of anger. Without having to doing much Iago, must wait as the insatiab... ... middle of paper ... ... does with the handkerchief. Good in Othello is defined as forgiving, innocent, unsuspecting and honest, while evil is defined as deceitful, manipulating, cunning and dishonest. Iago is the epitome of evil.
The news the oracle delivers to Oedipus is catastrophic. He is told that he will ... ... middle of paper ... ...hooses to be ignorant to the truth rather than see reality is abundant. His choice to blame others for his wrongs and his arrogance make him responsible for his crimes. Sophocles’s tragic play Oedipus Tyrannus induces catharsis in the audience and rouses exciting debate revolving around the morality concerned with Oedipus’s crimes. It is often argued whether Oedipus is truly responsible for the loathsome crimes of patricide and incest.
Iago is an evil character as while he has no legitimate reason for his evil plans, he rationalizes the reasons for his actions and still sets out to ruin the lives of those around him. He hates Michael Cassio, for receiving the lieutenancy instead on himself. Ranting to Roderigo, he says, “[Cassio is] mere prattle without practice/Is all his soldiership…And I, of whom his eyes had seen proof…must be beleed and calmed. (I.i.27-32). Iago believes that he has been unjustly overlooked for the position, as he is clearly more qualified than Cassio.
