In Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, Mr. Darcy went from being the most despised to the most desired man by having rare traits; he listened to women and later was not afraid to change some of his characteristics, all while still keeping the main principles of his character. Mr. Darcy was an open and honest man. His hatred for Mrs.Benett showed how open he was about his dislike of foolish and gossipy people. Darcy despised the hypocrisy and shallowness of the wealthy class especially those similar in character to Mrs.Benett. He was blunt and loud in stating his first impression of Elizabeth, that she was not attractive.
So he plays tricks on Mrs Jamieson to make her think he loves her, so that he charms her thus becoming irresistable. He accomplishes his mission, by telling her his stories, complimenting her, he woos Mrs Jamieson. At the end he brings her and Hoggins together, and problem is solved. Even Miss Jamieson, who is very class conscious women, is defeated against her feelings and welcomes change. While she is supposed to reject Peter due to his disrespectful approach to gentility rules, and his wealth earnt with working, she still accepts him into society.
He is charismatic, charming, self-reliant and well traveled. These personality traits made Desdemona fall in love with him, and by these, he measures his honorability. His measures his self-worth by the way he is perceived by others. That is the main reason why he perceives Desdemona’s alleged infidelity as ruining his honor. It makes him look like a fool and he feels that he has been taken advantage of because he is unwise and unfamiliar with the devious sexual practices of Venice women.
Not only that, but his intense love for and devotion to Desdemona are what lead his reactions to Iago’s lies to be so intense. In his last words, Othello proclaims, “Then must you speak/ Of one that loved not wisely, but too well./ Of one not easily jealous, but being wrought,/ Perplexed in the extreme.” (V,ii,360-64). Considering the fact that Iago is Othello’s most trusted friend, his betrayal seems unlikely, making it easy for Othello to be fooled by his double personality. Iago’s words cause Othello to brood over his fake predicament and make assumptions too quickly based off of little evidence, like that given in the “hiding scene” where Othello misinterprets Cassio because he can only see him and not hear what he is saying. Not only this, but the idea of his wife choosing to stray from him for her own “kind” surely unlocks his insecurities as an outsider.
She believed Casaubon to be an accomplished man, more educated and intelligent than most others she knew, and those qualities sparked her attraction. And yet, those same qualities were what drew him away during the day. Part of that loneliness was what brought about her misery, but Dorothea should have expected loneliness from a marriage with such a formal man. Dorothea had a chance to change her opinion of the man and her approval of his proposal when her family members tried to warn her. Celia spoke of Casaubon’s unappealing traits before learning of their engagement, telling Dorothea that he is ugly and has rude tendencies, and “scrapes his spoon” and always “blinks before he speaks” (Eliot 49).
She views herself as a loyal and faithful wife who has every good and pure desire for herself and Othello. Jealousy however is a deceptive device that gives Othello the illusion that Desdemona is unfaithful and dishonest. When Othello is enraged about the loss of the handkerchief the audience knows that he is consumed with jealousy which is causing him to lose his temper. On the other hand Desdemona is unaware that Othello is jealous saying, "Men 's natures wrangle with inferior things, / Though great ones are their object" (3.4.165-166). When she says this she believes that something has gone wrong at work and Othello is just taking it out on her ( the inferior thing).
It is also shown in Act 1 that he still lusts after her - when she asks if he looked up at her window for her, he replies "I may have looked up", this shows his characters weakness, but he remains strong willed. He does not give into what he obviously thinks of as great temptation, again. This shows the audience that he has recognized his mistake and is not repeating it. John Proctor is an honest man, but has undermined himself with his one act of dishonesty. ... ... middle of paper ... ... parallel, as he knew himself what height the communist hysteria had reached.
Once inside the house Mr Collins begins to commend each and every item of furniture within it. Mrs Bennet would on any other occasion have been delighted at this, but she knows that when Mr Collins entails the estate all that he admires will be his own. Mr Collins believes that by ingratiating Mrs Bennet about her house he will please her, but this begins to vex her a fair deal. “The girls were not the only objects of Mr Collins desire”, here we can see that Mr Collins views the girls as nothing more than materialistic, as objects. By the evening, Mr Collins is getting somewhat tiresome as he “eloquently praises” his patron, Lady Catherine de Bourgh, with great vivacity and unstoppable determination.
