The soliloquy “to be or not to be “asked by Hamlet questions the meaning of life and acts as a metaphor that suicide would be acceptable to escape from his life. Furthermore, this idea is supported by the repetition of “to die, to sleep; to sleep perchance to dream” is used to present that being dead is comparable to a being asleep and that death is a way to abandon reality. The thought of suicide is primarily caused by his search for vengeance and it ultimately leads to his demise. The imagery of “bear the whips and scorns of times” reveals that the more time that passes the more pain and grief he faces and implies that revenge acts as a double-edged sword as the closer he gets to his revenge the more pain he inflicts upon himself. The statement that revenge can lead to one’s madness is also represented by the character
Through all of the contemplating and countless hours of sorrow, Hamlet finds the will to live. This is significant because it shows the change in Hamlet from the beginning of the play. Shakespeare is suggesting something very specific through Hamlet in the middle part of the play. The suggestion made is that people are “in the mind to suffer”(3.1.65), and if someone can get through the tough times in life, it can only go forward and get better from there. This suggestion is very evident in the growth of Hamlet’s character throughout the course of the play.
Death is a concept toyed with by many authors and script writers alike. Any character death is used as a plot point in a story to drive home some idea. While there are the occasional sadistic writers who seem to just want to make their audience feel pain, even those deaths have a purpose. Catcher in the Rye by what 's his face and Rebel without a cause, directed by someone, are no exception to the rule, as both feature two hard hitting death scenes.
If up until now my analysis examined some of Hamlet´s actions, as well as steps taken so as to avenge his father’s murder, now it is time to focus on his constant hesitation and perpetual procrastination over the matter. William Shakespeare’s Hamlet is clearly a revenge play, yet ironically, our protagonist seems unable to commit such an act. Although, he establishes that the Ghost’s request for revenge is his obligation to carry out, Hamlet always postpones the act. Throughout the course the play it becomes quite obvious that Hamlet is conscious of the illusive form of his hollow intention: “I do not know/ Why yet I live to say, ‘This thing’s to do’”
In the allegorical story, “The Masque of the Read Death”, Poe, tries to express the human desire to avoid Death. The place and the time of the story portray social ignorance, since in the past death was a taboo that provoked terror in humanity. The consternation causes motivation in issues such as death dissolution or prevention. Poe finds himself motivated by death; in this work, his character Prince Prospero has strange tastes that represent death symbolically and makes a great effort to avoid it. First and foremost, the name Prospero is a metaphor; closely related to wealth and material prosperity.
nvestigation Although Inspector Javert was often introduced and portrayed as a villain or an antagonist, I’ve read an article that defend and expressed the author’s sympathy for him as he committed suicide once his definition of justice is disproven by the main character’s action. Thus, I’ve decided to investigate Javert’s struggle between legal laws and moral laws. The central philosophical issue was the problem of whether or not moral laws are more just than legal laws. When moral and legal laws are in conflict, which one should we obey?
As he watches his loved ones get murdered by the creature he created, he realizes that playing God is a dangerous game. One could argue that Victor starts off with these negative traits but then develops Justine’s traits like selflessness, bravery, and acceptance. While I do think he achieves these feelings as he progresses, I believe he only scratches the surface of what it means to truly be selfless or brave. He only develops these qualities because his irresponsible actions cause the death, directly or indirectly, of five people. Yes, he accepts his actions at some point, but he does so because of extreme circumstances.
While this factor may be useful in restricting one’s rash actions, overthinking restricts any further development. Consequently, Hamlet is only able to take initiative in the final scene of the tragedy; however, also dying himself. Inaction is Hamlet’s “identifying feature” -talks about his plans, but does not fulfill them. 7 The final scene demonstrates the extent and influence of revenge, the prince must die in order to achieve vengeance.
Death is now being pitied when the speaker says in line 4, “poor Death.” As rest and sleep play a role in the poem, Death are those two pleasures of life, which now make him a pleasure when life is at an end. Likewise, Death not only is compared to the pleasures of life, he is portrayed as a slave to everything that kills but himself. Finally, the speakers last words in lines 13 through 14 acquire the meaning that Death is to be worried about dying and being forgotten. “Death, be not proud” feels as though it’s a gloomy setting because
The conflict between the heart and the mind in Hamlet is relatable. The “To be or not to be” soliloquy highlights Hamlet’s inner conflict upon the issues of life and death. He speaks eloquently about his suicidal desire. But the fear of the afterlife makes him afraid to end his life. It is very common for the human race to be afraid of death.
Romeo 's Decisions In Romeo and Juliet Leads to Death Humans are able to make their own decisions and actions throughout their entire life.

I understand that they are in severe pain but if you just kill/euthanize them, then you are denying them of their final stage of growth and what lesson(s) they are going to learn at the final stages of their life .Because I think that it is during a terminal and incurable illness or something that you know is going to change your life,that people actually sit down and think about the way they have lived their life, think about the wrongs that they have done, and think of how they are going to prepare themselves, their family, and loved ones for their death. Not all people make use of this opportunity, but the ones that do usually try to build up or maybe even rebuild their relationships with their loved ones, and this opportunity will somehow give them a greater purpose in life. Therefore we should recognize the importance of the patient.so in conclusion euthanasia should be illegal and you should also know that God does not give anyone more than they can handle and that life is a sacred gift that god gave us because we deserved it and even I you are not religious or you do not believe in god life is still a sacred thing that should be appreciated and not abused. Therefore euthanasia should not be legal anywhere in the
