151). Those words further emphasize the complete betrayal and the disastrous affects Othello's over trust in one man had on his life. The Tragedy of Othello is yet another vehicle through which Shakespeare is able to express his genius as a playwright. He skillfully utilized all of the requirements needed to satisfy Aristotle's requirements for a true tragedy. Shakespeare's brilliant use of language captivates the audience as well as touching them on a personal level because of how understandable the events and human characteristics were.
As humans, one tends to easily over react when situations happen. Talking with someone, who gives good advice, can really help one look at the situation and come to reason with it. Many friendships are lost due to petty things and no one having the willingness to forgive each other because of pride. People need to learn to put their pride aside and do what is right and forgive each other. As a result of permanently forgetting ones wrong doing; forgiveness has to be carried out by both decisional and emotional forgiveness.
Iago does not care if his suspicions are true, he will act as if it is true. With or without evidence Iago will find a way to control Othello because he knows he is too naïve. “After some time, to abuse Othello’s ear That he is too familiar with his wife. He hath a person and a smooth dispose To be suspected, framed to make women false. The Moor is of a free and open nature That thinks men honest that but... ... middle of paper ... ...omes more apparent after being manipulated by Iago.
Othello is jealous of the suspicious relationship between his lieutenant Cassio and his wife Desdemona. This is ironic because there really is no such affair between the two. Othello has many flaws which allow him to seem more humanlike and connect to society.These many flaws of Othello allow for more genuineness to be seen within him, and as a result he appeals more to the public. Authenticity is imperative for the public to connect with the character Othello and really enjoy the Shakespearean tragedy. Othello is... ... middle of paper ... ... the character Iago.
The Lover also reveals his rebellion against religion and God, thinking that God will not condemn him, as his deed was not wrong. I prefer Porphyria's Lover to My Last Duchess, as the Duke is terribly arrogant and pedantic. The Lover, I believe, truly loved Porphyria with all his heart, though it is baffling why he felt death was the only option. Whereas the Duke, did not love his wife but saw her as a possession to show off in front of people. The painting must surely work the way he wants it, as it is another thing to show off.
Because Torvald views Nora as an invaluable member of society as well as his household, he refuses to understand Nora’s feelings when Krogstand’s letter is revealed to him. As Torvald reads the horrid letter, he questions Nora as to the validity. Nora tries desperately to explain to Torvald that the letter is true; however, the heinous crime was committed all in the name of love for him. His reaction to her is “Oh, don’t let us have any silly excuses” (Act 3). Torvald responds to Nora in such a way that he does not believe that she could commit such a malicious act out of love for him.
However, This is just a ploy created by Iago to hide the truth from Othello. Because of Iago 's anger for revenge, he plans to create doubt in Othello 's mind towards the people he truly trusts. One of Othello 's weakness as a tragic hero is him being oblivious to the truth. Othello is also a gullible character who gets tricked and by Iago multiple times. In act 3, scene 3, Othello says to himself, "...This honest creature doubtless sees and knows more, much more, than he unfolds" (Johnson 1298).
Why do we lie to ourselves? Why do we deceive ourselves into thinking that we are something that we are not? In reality most people will find that they are not who they appear to be. We seem to hide our true feelings and thoughts from ourselves, and others. Being comfortable in living a lie endangers our ability to be inspired, hence limiting our actual self from thriving into something much more than we already are.
When Othello hears Iago’s off hand remark about Cassio, he trusts that Iago would not have said anything if it wasn’t something to worry about. Then, Iago, knowing how Othello thinks of his character, makes Othello think there is more to his thoughts than he is willing to speak of. Iago knows just what to say and how to articulate it to make Othello think the worst. He even manages to look like a friend who wants to keep... ... middle of paper ... ...ted something was wrong with Iago’s wanting to devastate Othello when Iago changes his story. At first, Iago cites his rage about being passed over for the promotion to lieutenancy as his reasoning for hating Othello.
Either way, I believe it shows a weak indecisive character. Although it remains socially unacceptable, motives for participating in the blame game can stem from a variety of character flaws, such as, the effort to protect self-image, justification by eluding ones actions, a low self-esteem, or the lack of self-control. According to Marc and Dianna MacYoung of No Nonsense Self Defense, blame is very much like anger; it teaches us to override our self-control and ultimately dulls the sense of empathy. Pointing the finger to blame someone else can be harmful to everyone involved; age or gender plays no role. Whatever the circumstance, the individual doing the blaming suffers right along with the individual being blamed.
