Are hamlet's actions justified or not justified that is the question? In this essay I'm going to explain if his actions are justified through different documents. My opinion is that his actions were justified and some examples why are because his uncle is the one who killed his father and his mother married his uncle not to long after. In document A the ghost of his father says "Revenge his foul and most unnatural murder" what he means is he wants hamlet to revenge his soul (killing the uncle). Were starting this off with Gertrude.
Decades later, both Jaffrey and Clifford were well into old age. Clifford had hated his cousin ever since he was framed for the death of his uncle, and, due to old age and seclusion, had become slightly insane. Jaffrey went to the house of seven gables, where Clifford was living, with the intent of asking him where to find the famed deed mentioned in the previous pages. While Clifford’s sister and caretaker, Hepzibah, went to fetch her brother, Clifford killed Jaffrey. It was Jaffrey’s greed that began the rivalry between the two cousins, and the same greed that eventually led his cousin to kill
The black dot in The Lottery `means death in the short story. For example, the black dot on the paper means death in the story. Whoever was the one to draw the paper with the black dot was the one to get stoned.

Another symbol in the story is the black box which symbolizes evil, death, and oldness.

The View of Perception There are many unmistakable parallels between the two-short story’s “The Lottery” and “Barn Burning.” “The Lottery” is written by Shirley Jackson and takes place in a small town in America. The lottery is an annual ritual where all the families get together, the man of each family takes a paper with the possibility of that being marked which then means someone in the family will die. That is to say, a villager winning the lottery results in the other villagers stoning he or she to death. William Faulkner wrote the short story “Barn Burning.” Not to mention, the story starts off in a courtroom because Abner Snopes burned down the property of Mr. Harris. Mr. Harris is landowner, who is left with a burned barn and no legal option.
Not only did Claudius kill King Hamlet, but he also married Hamlet’s mother only a month after he did so. Claudius states “With mirth in funeral, and with dirge in marriage, In equal scale weighing delight and dole, Taken to wife.”(1.2.12-4) Claudius uses this deceit of Hamlet to receive sympathy off the sudden death of his brother, and conversely into the steadfast “happy” marriage of the new king and queen. Claudius continues to deceive more and more as the play goes
The internal conflict that Tessie Hutchinson only worried about herself and not her family. Tessie states “there's Don and Eva, Mrs. Hutchinson yelled, make them take their chance.” This shows she didn't care what happens to other people. The short story also includes an external conflict; where old man warner brags he can survive the lottery which he did all of’em, He says “seventy-seventh year I been in the lottery, old man warner said as he went through the crowd.” This also shows that he’s capable to survive another one. You can imagine what he must go through the worry every year of not knowing if this is his last year alive. This is internal conflict (Jackson
Oscar Hartzell stated that he met con-artists and they told him of the shared fortune of Sir Francis Drake (Nash). He was born to a poor farmer and when his mother died and he inherited $6000 he quickly looked for a way to make that more (Nash). When it had been discovered that he had created a fake name for a brother of Sir Francis Drake and tried to claim money from it ( Nash). When the prosecutor came up to give a statement he states that everyone in the jury knows that every defendant’s representation is fake even the judge begged them to stop lying because it was all beginning to pile up on them ( Nath; “21”). The judge followed by stating, “Go to your homes and along the highways and byways and tell them (contributors to the estate fund) that the court has judicially found that there is no pot of gold at the end of the rainbow," he wanted to tell them this was not going to end the way they had wanted it to, but they persisted yet and many were convicted of mail fraud ( Nash; “21”).
(5 pts.) Major Rawls doesn’t know Owen as well as John or Hester but yet he still thinks that everything he does is too great for the world. It’s ironic because Major Rawls wasn’t a very good person yet him saying that says something amazing about Owen (611). The following is a couplet from Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar: “Cowards die many times before their deaths; / The valiant never taste of death but once.” It appears more than once in these pages.

Did Queenie kill her husband Arthur or did he actually fall down the stairs? That was the question that was asked when Queenie returned to her house and ten minutes later called her friends into her house. Queenie claims that, “Arthur slipped and fell on the stairs”(1 “Slip or Trip”). According to the evidence his body is in the wrong position and the glass in his hand shows that he was set up by Quinnie. Therefore, Quinnie did kill her husband Arthur and set it up to look like Arthur had died on his own.
In the short story The Lottery, the theme of the dangers of blindly following traditions is strongly depicted. The short story leads up to a town that participates in a brutal murder each year, by sacrificing one person by stoning the person to death. It is a ridiculous ritual that proves the point of the dangers in following traditions blind. In this story, before the kind of lottery they’re conducting is known, the towns people and participants seem harmless, even charming in a way. An example of this would be how they appointed a sort of pitiful man to be over the lottery, and another being the kids running around gathering up stones.
