Abstract

In his writings, William Shakespeare tries to dig deep in the human feelings such as envy, hatred, love and betrayal that manifest themselves eventually in physical acts. His depiction of such issues seems so realistic; reflecting the psychological depth of his characters and leads to the audience to a better comprehension of the human nature. In this respect, the theme of betrayal in his plays should be put within a wider context. He delves deep in his characters minds, both the victims and the victimizers, to probe the feelings that cause people betray each other.
