To a large extent, the desire to seek revenge arises from a fundamental belief that people have been wronged. It is in this idea of being wronged or being mistreated where there is a desire for some level of compensation or recompense where revenge arises. The source of revenge is something that is personally felt and something that might lie outside what others feel. I think that there are many good studies of this in literature and cinema, but two stand out in my mind. The first would be the character of Iago in Shakespeare's Othello. Iago does what he does because he feels that he was wronged by Othello. His desire for revenge is what ends up driving his compulsion to represent evil. He does not care for what others think of him because of his need to ensure that everyone feels what it is like to be wronged. Conveying this through revenge is of vital importance to him and represents his primary motivation. Another example of this need for revenge existing within the individual and lying outside the reach of society would be the characterization of Beatrix Kiddo in Tarantino's film, Kill Bill. Her desire for revenge is something that no one can quash. It is a motivation that exists within her and even when evident that her life was not as horrific as constructed, when she finds out that her child is alive, her need for revenge is absolute. She is unreachable in this venue. There is no sense of totality or transcendence which will be able to reach her, assuage her pain or move her from her position of desiring revenge. It is here in both of these instances where the desire for revenge stems from something personally held that few, if any, can even really grasp or fully comprehend.
