Transcript of Jealousy
Jealousy is such a self-defeating emotion,
Like trying to swim the ocean,
Or change the course of a clock's motion.
All it does is infest its hosts,
Who feel inferior to all or most,
Until they find those they can control
And thus steal a superior role.
Thoughts and actions they then own
While dominating another lonely drown.
Unfortunately the jealous never see
The rest of the world who always flee
Their self deprecating chagrin blaming
Others for the maudlin state they're in.
Gregory Huyette Jealousy in A Separate Peace Jealousy in Othello Jealousy Similarities Jealousy is a problem one has with himself, not a problem between two people. New Insight on Jealousy In Othello, many of the characters fall victim to jealousy, causing them to commit acts outside of their normal persona. Characters:
Iago jealous of Othello and Desdemona's relationship jealous of Cassio (the handkerchief) jealous of Othello who has Desdemona's love jealous of Cassio's position Jealousy is a powerful emotion, one that can destroy relationships, and consume the mind. Jealousy can lead to devastating consequences.
Othello: Quotes A Separate Peace: Quotes Finny is viewed as the picture perfect student at Devon. “I was beginning to see that Phineas could get away with anything. I couldn’t help envying him a little, which was perfectly normal. There was no harm in envying even your best friend a little” (Knowles 25) Gene focuses more on what Finny does than what Gene does himself. Finny could get away with just about anything. “This time he wasn’t going to get away with it. I could feel myself becoming unexpectedly excited at that” (Knowles 27) “I’d kill myself out of jealous envy” (Knowles 52). “Yes, he had practically saved my life. He had also practically lost if for me. I wouldn’t have been on that damn limb except for him…I didn’t feel any tremendous rush of gratitude toward Phineas” (Knowles 33). Gene views Finny's extraordinary character in a negative aspect Jealousy leads to feelings of violation and betrayal Jealousy is a personal barrier against oneself that blocks one from letting his true strengths prosper and grow. Jealousy derives from feelings of insecurity One Michael Cassio, a Florentine,
A fellow almost damn'd in a fair wife;
That never set a squadron in the field,
Nor the division of a battle knows
More than a spinster; unless the bookish theoric,
Wherein the toged consuls can propose
As masterly as he: mere prattle, without practise,
Is all his soldiership. -Iago Why, why is this?
Think'st thou I'ld make a life of jealousy,
To follow still the changes of the moon
With fresh suspicions? No; to be once in doubt
Is once to be resolved: exchange me for a goat,
When I shall turn the business of my soul
To such exsufflicate and blown surmises,
Matching thy inference. 'Tis not to make me jealous
To say my wife is fair, feeds well, loves company,
Is free of speech, sings, plays and dances well;
Where virtue is, these are more virtuous:
Nor from mine own weak merits will I draw
The smallest fear or doubt of her revolt;
For she had eyes, and chose me. -Othello O, beware, my lord, of jealousy;
It is the green-eyed monster which doth mock
The meat it feeds on. -Iago Jealousy causes one to blame someone else or find someone else's faults Those enveloped in jealousy look for easily manipulated people for targets. The only person jealousy severely affects is the host who feels inferior to all others. A jealousy person does not own up to his feelings. In order to escape jealousy, one must be cognate of the fact that he/she is the only one at fault (no blaming the victim).
