Hoagland uses the word “dies” instead of “passes away”, this seems like a cold-hearted word instead of the passing of a loved one. We can infer he had a difficult and confusing relationship with his father. When Hoagland states, “I mistakenly believed that it was love concealed in his closed hand”, it shows how he believed his father loved him even through his abuse. Hoagland’s poem has a melancholic tone in that all the son wanted to do was please his father, who was both abusive and an alcoholic, and how the son tried to believe that even though his father abused him, he still loved him. Hoagland uses a lot of “ah” sounds with the letter in this poem such as in “soft”, “dropped”, and “bottle”.
Here, Claudius deceitfully makes it seem that he is concerned for Hamlet. However, in reality, he has an ulterior motive for power, and does his utmost to perpetuate his influence. Therefore, he wants to ensure that Hamlet’s melancholy and unusual behaviour is not from his ambition or desire to inherit the throne, or anything else that may cause him harm. Clearly, Claudius is suspicious of Hamlet, and uses the spies as a means to determine whether he is a threat. The fact that Hamlet does not fall into this trickery later on in the scene suggests that Claudius is going to have to go to greater lengths to find out what is troubling Hamlet.
Williams Shakespeare’s play, Hamlet, describes the tragic death of King Hamlet, whose son becomes very depressed and impacted by the death of his father, causing him to plan revenge honoring his father’s death.The son, Hamlet, constantly is mourning his father and is depressed about how no one seems to be mourning for him. This causes Hamlet to lose his relationships with people in his family because he keeps to himself, rather than voicing his suffering to others in effort to heal. This inhibits his recovery and perpetuates his depressive state. Malcolm Gladwell disagrees with Hamlet’s way to handle grief and suggests a more proactive way to improve their situation. Gladwell in his piece, David and Goliath Underdogs, Misfits and the Art of Battling Giants, suggests people should use their negative situation to their advantage.

In Shakespeare’s, Julius Caesar, he portrays the conflict man vs self by informing people that it is human nature to make decisions based on other people’s points of view.

Persuasion is used throughout the novel to entice a character to agree with another character. For example, Brutus does not want to kill Caesar, even though he does not want him to become king, but his other friends attempt to persuade him into believing that murdering one of his closest comrades is a good idea. Brutus tries to convince the conspirators why killing Caesar is wrong as well.
