Hamlet loves his father and thinks he is most dearest to him and wants to set upon the skies like his father is. He has recurring thoughts to himself about his life and what he should accomplish. His suicidal thoughts mostly come from the thinking of avenging his father and to brutally eliminate Claudius from the game.

Anticipation works amid this specific piece of the story because an officer touches base to their home requesting a drink of water.

[then] an idea that held a wild chance came to him” (651-654). Connell further creates a sense of hopelessness and dread with the phrase “postponing the inevitable” since it is only a matter of time before Rainsford gets brutally murdered by Zaroff. This phrase also gives the reader a glimpse into Rainsford’s thoughts and makes sure that the reader understands the situation.

At the end of “The Raven” the protagonist accepts his love 's death as well with the help of the raven when he tells him that he will never be together with his love again. Poe did not write these two stories to create creepy gothic stories, he wrote these two stories because it had a lot of meaning to him. He wrote the stories and imagined himself as the narrator in both stories because he too lost someone very important to
This is just like how Hamlet just kept trying and trying to kill Claudius. He kept trying and trying, but failed continuously. He knew what the ideal outcome was, Claudius dead, and just kept going and going until that happened. Ariely told us about a general rule, he said that if the action will result in a negative outcome right away than this behavior has a less likely chance of occurring, even if the major end goal is what is being strived for (165). Hamlet knew what the outcome would be for killing his uncle and he contemplated it for a while.
