Throughout the play Hamlet continues to act insane and even dies with the act continuing. Even after Hamlet gathers all the evidence that proves Claudius is the murder, Hamlet continues to behave in a strange way. When he mistakenly murders Polonius he does not react as a sane person would. This act enrages Laertes, who then wants to avenge his father’s death. Driven to madness by the murder of his father, Laertes, with the help of Claudius conspires to kill Hamlet.
Hamlet feels betrayed by his mother and feels like he can 't trust anyone. Shakespeare gives Hamlet these struggles in the play to amplify the mental and psychological events that make the reader feel bad about what all happened to Hamlet. Hamlet eventually kills Claudius like his father told him to, but only did it after his mother, Gertrude, drank the poison that Claudius meant to give Hamlet. This is a result of external action from all the sorrows that was building up in Hamlet’s life. This brings us to our next character, Gertrude, Claudius’s wife and Hamlets
This has resulted in Hamlet becoming isolated from his family. In addition Hamlet is pained by his perception in that, both his uncle and mother have murdered his father. Although Hamlet 's father told him not to talk to his mother about what has happened he goes and tells her that she is wrong in that she has “ killed a king and marry with his brother”( 171 ). Hamlet believes that her moving on is just another way to kill him. She is getting rid of him and what they shared by moving on to Claudius.
He tells him at the beginning to not turn his back on him. At some points in the play it's really hard to tell if he is faking his madness, or if he is actually starting to go crazy. The reason he acts crazy is because he knows his father was murdered by his uncle. He thinks that if he acts mad, he will have a better chance at getting revenge on Claudius. In the beginning of the play the ghost of Hamlet's father visits him.
Desdemona’s father states that he should kill her for her disloyalty from getting married without his permission. The secret marriage deeply wounds her father to the point that he has the right to kill her. She is sacrificing her life for her love of Othello; the implications of this show how deep the love of the two love birds runs. Even though her betrayal is unforgivable, her father decides that her death would be undesirable blood on his hands, therefore, Desdemona’s act of secrecy taints her image with a seed of doubt. By gaining Othello’s love, Desdemona loses the love of her father and ruins her credibility in his eyes, which causes him to cast her out and exile her from their home.
Hamlet delays in killing Claudius not only because he 's suffering from an Oedipal complex but also because his basic sanity keeps him from killing Claudius. In society we are taught that those who commit murder are sick or insane and will go to hell. However, Hamlet 's society believes the son of a murdered noble is responsible for avenging his father. And if the son does not abide to this law he himself deserves
Macbeth thinks about his line of succession, and thinks to himself “ No son of mine succeeding,if’t be so, for Banquo’s issue have i filled my mind: For them the gracious Duncan have i murder’d” (III.i.67-69). This is stating that Macbeth killed Duncan because he knew his kids would become kings after him, and Macbeth didn’t like this. Macbeth killed Duncan for his petty ways to get what he wants and to become king. Being angry and killing innocent Duncan are a way of being seen as the villain, which Macbeth had been proven to be. Macduff son thinks out loud to his mom “Young fry of treachery he has
Others would say that after he accepts his father 's plea for vengeance, that he uses this cloak of madness as a disguise so Claudius cannot see his murderous intentions. As many researchers know there is much evidence for both his sanity, and his madness. But which is true? In the play, Hamlet is constantly talking to himself, which is already one sign of madness, but the things that he says to himself are murderous and even suicidal quotes. One of the quotes in the play being, “HAMLET: O, that this too too sullied flesh would melt, Thaw and resolve itself into a dew, Or that the Everlasting had not fixed His canon 'gainst self-slaughter!
In the real world everyone makes mistakes that cannot be fixed. In William Shakespeare 's Romeo and Juliet both the Capulets and the Montagues make several mistakes, but there is one person most responsible. Juliet 's father, Lord Capulet, is most to blame for the events that occurred and for his daughter 's death. Romeo would have never met Juliet if Lord Capulet had kicked him out of the party. In scene 5 of act 1 Tybalt recognized Romeo and instead of dueling him, Lord Capulet said to leave Romeo alone.
Ophelia in Hamlet is being mistreated by her father and by the characters around her. She suffers from extreme cruelty by her own father Polonius. He is the worst image of a father because he disrespects, controls and manipulates his own daughter for his own whims (Dorn, 1999). For example, he orders Ophelia to participate in uncovering the thoughts of Hamlet "...Walk you here… Read on this book that shows such exercise may color your loneliness"(III.i:41-46) in this excerpt, he orders her to pretend to read from a book in order to make it more reasonable to be alone when she meets Hamlet. Obviously, she follows exactly what her father tells her to as she replies to his orders "I shall obey my lord"(I.iv:136).
