    There is often some sort of greater power at play in tragedies, like fate. Some say that Othello's tragic flaw was jealousy which flared at suspicion and rushed into action unchecked by calm common sense. If Hamlet acts like a noble, he has no cover for his accusations, if he acts insane the behavior becomes expected by everyone around him. Lodovico appoints Cassio as Othello's successor and exhorts him to punish Iago justly. Gertrude drinks the poisoned wine, by accident, and dies.

    He also makes it known that if feelings about a situation are over dramatized they can cause a hazardous faux pas. The ship in which he travels is attacked by pirates, and his return to Denmark is nothing but chance. The Folio also lacks a scattering of about a dozen lines or part-lines that are to be found in the Quarto. As publicized in Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, reckless decisions may possibly lead to an unforeseen and dreadful conclusion. In summary, Hamlet is in control of his own fate. The external conflict is with Claudius-'the mighty opposer'-and the murderer of Hamlet's father.

    Montano tries to calm down an angry and drunk Cassio and this leads to them fighting one another. He has a high intellectual quality. Although logically the play covers an unspecified time lapse of, we presume, two or three weeks, it proceeds, more or less, by major scenes through the hours of the day, starting in Venice with the elopement after midnight, the Senate meeting at dawn, then at Cyprus with the morning storm and afternoon landings and developments, the fateful drinking party in the early evening and the murder at bed time. Leavishave focused on Othello.
