Her madness stemmed from Hamlet’s killing of her father, and Hamlet’s madness came from the death of his father. When Ophelia found out about Polonius’s death, she sang, “He is dead and gone, lady, He is dead and gone, At his head a grass-green turf, At his heels a stone. Oh, ho!” (Hamlet 4.5.25-26). Ophelia’s insane tune convinced the King and Queen that she was mad.

Firstly Iago uses racism to ignite the flame in Desdemona’s father, Brabantio against Othello. Zounds, sir, you’re robbed! For shame, put on your gown. Your heart is burst, you have lost half your soul. Even now, now, very now, an old black ram Is tupping your white ewe.
It infected the minds of Maycomb citizens and brainwashed them into thinking that white people were superior to any person of color. This did result in Atticus losing the trial, but Maudie brought up that even though he lost, what he said definitely affected everyone
I asked myself; and then, with another bound of terror-how was it to be remedied” ( Stevenson 47). Therefore, Jekyll was growing weaker and more powerless to his illness because Hyde was in control. In To Kill a Mockingbird Atticus’s enemy was Bob Ewell who was telling his daughter to falsely accuse Tom Robinson of rape. “‘I said come here, and bust this chifferobe, He coulda done it easy enough. He got me round the neck, he hit me again an’ again’”
For example, in act three scene four Hamlet and Gertrude are in her “closet.” During this scene Hamlet kills Polonius and speaks his mind and lets his mother know that she has offended his father. Also, in act three scene four in lines 19-21 Hamlet says “No, by the rood, not so. You are the Queen, your husband’s brother’s wife, And (would it were not so) you are my mother.” At this point Hamlet brings his mother’s actions to her attention.
This disconnect between the two underscores how Sibyl killed Dorians love. This is more of a metaphorical killing of love, but Oscar Wilde shows a more literal meaning behind killing their love. When Henry says “My letter----don’t be frightened----was to tell you that Sibyl Vane is dead” (Dorian Gray, 71) Dorian is shaken about how his drastic actions caused Sybil to kill herself. Doiran quite literally causes the death of the one he loves. Wilde used a direct, sharp statements to emphasise the scale of what happened.
Oedipus' pride is turned to shame as he murdered of his father and his incestuous relationship with his mother was brought forward. He begins to lose those things that are most precious to him. First, he loses his mother and wife as Jocasta is found "hanging, the twisted rope around her neck" (1294). Next he loses his sight as he takes Jocasta's "gold chased brooches fastening her robe" (1299) and stabbed his eyes out. Finally, he loses his kingdom as Teiresias' prophecy is fulfilled: "blindness for sight and beggary for riches his exchange" (503-504).
Described in detail, the story involves how Matthew Maule, the grandson of a man falsely killed by the Pyncheon family, gets revenge on them by putting a spell on Gervayse’s daughter Alice to continuously do his bidding, which ultimately kills her. After Holgrave’s story is told, Phoebe leaves for her family home in the country and takes all happiness found in the home with her. Meanwhile, Judge Pyncheon arrives at the home during Phoebe’s absence, but is fiercely and angrily received by Hepzibah. While he at first politely asks to speak to Clifford regarding a hidden fortune that was once spoken of, his calmness turns to anger as a result of Hepzibah’s firm standing and he in turn threatens Clifford. Frightened, Hepzibah relents and goes to fetch Clifford, but discovers that he is absent from his room.
Hamlet has come to see his mother, Queen Gertrude, and ends up stabbing Lord Polonius, which ultimately leads to his death. Lord Polonius’ final words include “O, I am slain!” Even though this provides a slight amount of comic relief to the reader, it has a reverse effect on Ophelia’s mental state. Her father’s death seems to be the potent punch in this fight because she officially goes mad after this final event. This is apparent in Scene IV Act I, when Laertes has come back to visit his sister and check on her well being.
