Furthermore, amongst being the dominating figure at this point in the tragedy, other characteristics of Eddie are shown such as his sense of loyalty and principle.

Unexpectedly and ironically, Eddie’s last words before his death were “My B!” – instead of to Catherine. Unlike any other moment in the screenplay, the once dominating Eddie now needs Beatrice more than she needs him and the once put away Catherine no longer aims to meet Eddie’s expectations or seek his approval.
Throughout the play Iago is described as an "honest" man, which to the audience seems ironic because really everything the man says they know to be a lie. 2) Iago tries to convince Othello that Desdemona is having an affair with Cassio. Iago forms the plan that Cassio will be target. Cassio and Desdemona are friendly to each other and Iago can see how this could appear to be more than just friendship.

Beforehand George knew he would not want to live out his dream without Lennie, so by protecting Lennie and giving up on his own dream he put Lennie above himself. Conversely, someone may believe that George's actions were selfish and that he benefits himself by killing Lennie. After George comes after Lennie, the dim-witted man asks if George was going to yell at him. Reluctantly George told him “If I was alone, I could live so easy,” (103). Although George said
In this case evil has corrupted a man’s reason when faced with a very important decision and is an example of how vulnerable one’s blind spots are. This especially can be seen in the case of Mr. Cunningham, Walter Cunningham's dad. The novel firsts introduces Mr. Cunningham as a good man, true to his word, and loyal. However, the second time the novel depicts him he is leading a mob to hurt Tom Robinson and anybody in their way: this means Atticus. Scout was luckily able to stop them but was confused the next morning.
When referring to his vengeance, he says: “my smile was now at the thought of his immolation”; the author highlights now because the character confesses he’s been kind to his victim but he did not appreciate his .

As for their motives, they are vaguely defended. So, The Cask of Amontillado qualifies extravagantly for a good mystery narrative. Therefore, a story cannot be cataloged “horror” unless it is written taking into consideration factors like fear, mystery and suspense.
Eddie's baffled jealousy culminates in an unforgivable crime against his family and the Sicilian community. It is Eddie Carbone, who is identified by Alfieri as the hero of this particular tragedy, however the hero has a character fault, this draws him inevitably to tragedy. There are many different sides to Eddie's personality; he has good, bad, admirable as well as hateful qualities. During this play, we see these different sides of him through the way he interacts with his family. Eddie is a fundamentally simple, straightforward man who worked on the piers when there was work, he is seen to be humorous, kind and generous in anticipating the arrival, illegally, of his wife's cousins.
Eddie is the play’s main character who has very distinct views on what a man should be like. He feels it is necessary for a man to be aggressive and to use violence in order to state his authority and power. This is evident when he asks Catherine “What’s the high heels for, Garbo?” Eddie asks this in a very sarcastic manor, however, he is fully aware that he wants things his own way. Eddie also considers bravery and the reputation of the male to be vital in a man’s personality. This is shown by the way he battles Marco nearer the end of the play, not to make friends but to restore his reputation.
The crime itself is, in a sense, worse because of the circumstances; not a simple murder, but the murder of one's brother wholly for personal gain, his crown and queen. It is this which balances out any morally wrong actions Hamlet may take. Hamlet, on the other hand, begins the play as a very rational and intelligent man. Although it is shown he can be impulsive and rash, his rationality wins out - at least in the beginning of the play. When seeing his father's ghost, he unquestionably accepts all he hears as truth, but doesn't act on it until he can verify it in some way.
He lives within a close-knit community of Sicilians and is a well respected member of society. Eddie sees himself as a prime example of how a man should act and look. The ending of a view from the bridge is fairly predictable from the beginning as it is hinted at by the narrator Alfieri throughout the first scene until the climax at the end of scene one where it becomes evident to us that a fall is about to occur. Many factors contribute to the tragic downfall of Eddie Carbone. However it is his limited understanding of what it means to be a man that is the most prominent.
