Synthesis Response
Conflict is the true test of an individual’s internal strength and understanding, encountering conflict can evoke an individual to reassess their values, morals and beliefs’, staying true is the best way to deal with the animosity. It is through this that social order can deteriorate into conflict and anarchy with disturbing ease; it is a fear of difference and is not always easy to distinguish the innocent from the guilty in contesting situations. Conflict can be the struggle between the protagonists or antagonists against nature, contradictory emotions or opposing forces, manipulating an individual to fulfill the desire of one’s unmeasured flame. Applying a prevailing and emphatic depth into the concept of internal and external conflict, the texts Othello composed by Shakespeare and 1984 devised by George Orwell, attracts the audience to see, feel and experience the compelling turmoil’s that erupt. The consequences of racial discrimination, the contrasting of a democracy and a totalitarian society, reality and derealisation, along with the animosity and momentum to seek revenge and justice, to enhance the audiences understanding and interpretation of these conflicts. Jealously is the obsession and anxiety, the arena possed into a phantasm of internal conflicts, a web of a world dictated by negative emotions, insecurities and fears, infecting an epidemic upon a victim’s identity and true morals to deal with a repugnant conflict. Shakespeare evokes the delusion of jealously through the luminary Othello, over the anticipated phantasm of Desdemona’s and Cassio’s infidelity.

Iago’s speech is deeply ironic, highlighting Othello’s aberrations, the root to this tragedy, to further mislead this luminary. The responder identifies that Othello is eminently insecure about his personal qualities and marriage, the ambiguity becomes delirium as the psychological dismay consumes within this victim, prompting an epileptic fit to materialize. The jealously appears to be a tiger that tears not only its prey but also its own raging heart. The capacity to formulate judgements is elusive, which provoked the death of Iago, Emilia, Desdemona and Othello, it is not love that is blind, but jealously, it is the internal conflict that engulfs and tears away Othello’s human sole. The conflict strikes the audiences sense of the human condition. The corruptive nature of jealously exposes Othello’s true internal weakness to deal with conflict, this is embroiled among Winston Smith as he struggles with the internal battle to differentiate between reality and derealisation in the perception of the totalitarian society which consumes this victim. The tragedy can be interpreted as the viewer being forced to confront its own human frailty in witnessing the event of the play. The internal conflict of jealously is irrational and requires non substantial evidence to trigger it, but is an aspect of being human, conveying that the greater the love the greater the potential for jealously to erupt, evoking a manipulation upon ones values, morals and beliefs. Often the most arduous, tantalizing and engaging cases concerning what we are conscious of and the nature of the conscious subject are those connected to the sense of memory and reality. George Orwell immerses and identifies the mutability of the reality, derealisation and the existence of fact through memory to communicate the interior psychological conflict; an individual is confronted with when this fundamental human...
