Micro: Hamlet uses a hyperbole to express the magnitude of his feelings for Ophelia. By doing so the reader has a definite answer to the question of whether their love was ever real. To be able to hide such an intense feeling meant that Hamlet was significantly psychologically damaged to the point of being in a state of disconnect and anger. The readers get a sense of his pain as he makes this grand confession and the regret he feels due to rejecting her was clearly evident. Overarching Thesis: Due to Hamlet’s unfortunate situation, the couple was not able to have a normal relationship.
This simple confrontation between mother and son along with the death of Polonius makes this scene detrimental in not only the play but also the character development. The line from Gertrude shows the “black and grainèd spots” within her as sins that will forever be a part of her.

The death of Laertes’ father was not the only thing he blamed Hamlet for but also the death Ophelia his sister.

The concept of jealousy is explored by William Shakespeare in the play Othello. Jealousy is a clear indication on how one fears and insecurities can be exploited and manipulated by those who are envious. Deceit can turn one against those whom they love and overwhelmed with emotion that it results in losing sanity and death.

In the tragedy Hamlet, Hamlet’s conflict was cause by his own emotions and flaws. “Hamlet does have a tragic flaw, for being the principal character in a tragedy, written within the template of a classical tragedy, Hamlet was expected to share this trait with all other noble, tragic characters.” (Tatu, 126). Hamlet had a fundamental weakness that he couldn’t overcome until the end of the story. Hamlet was responsible for his own downfall. He felt like he was obligated to defend his father when finding out the truth behind his death.
In the tragic play Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, Mercutio and Tybalt have an argument which leads up to a fight to the death but they both end up dying. Even though some may believe it’s Mercutio’s fault for the deaths, I believe that it’s Tybalt’s fault for both of the deaths. I believe that Tybalt is responsible for both his own and Mercutio’s death because he is hot-headed and opinionated when it comes to listening to other people One of the Reasons Tybalt is to blame for both of the deaths is because of his careless action choice.

Hence, the common themes that the works both have are betrayal, hurt, and the madness of the characters showcasing their pain to the world. In Hamlet and False Pretense, the characters each struggle with a betrayal that befalls them. Hamlet is quick to note his once childhood friends Rosencrantz and Guildenstern have turned against him, saying, “[There’s letters sealed; and my two schoolfellows, Whom I will trust as I will adders fanged…” understanding that he can no longer rely on them (Shakespeare 3.4 225-226). Likewise, in False Pretense, the song’s narrator deals with a betrayal from someone close to them. The narrator’s disbelief is shown through their statement of “The world’s got a funny
The main character then furthers the already standing conflict (generally explained at the beginning of the play) to the point in which their lives, families, or political structures are brought into it and ultimately are destroyed. The protagonist, sometimes the antagonist and many other leading characters end up without their lives throughout the play, mainly the ending in a dramatic final scene. The concept of the Fatal Flaw in Shakespearean Tragedy is that a character has many flaws, but there is just one specific flaw that ends fatally for them. For example, Othello’s hamartia is jealousy, which ends in his death. Macbeth’s hamartia is his excessive ambition to become King, which leads to paranoia, and then leads to his death.
