When the identity of the horseman was revealed, my first reaction was surprised because I realize that Druse kills his own father and I understood why every kinds of war are destructive for family relationships.

His madness effect on his judgment and makes him to become obsessed with the death; even he sees death as the only way to take revenge. We can see that Hamlet explores death in every facet of the play from many different angles and how he develops his definition of death from the materially to morality perspective.

Even though Tybalt was directly killed by Romeo in Act 3 of William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, there are numerous other elements that indirectly led to his downfall, including Romeo and Juliet’s secrets, the ancient grudge, and Tybalt’s pride. One reason Tybalt died was because of Romeo and Juliet’s secrets. In 3.1, Romeo told him, “The reason that I have to love thee/ Doth much excuse the appertaining rage/ To such a greeting.

This makes the reader rethink the pro-war propaganda spread by corruption to reinforce that as a patriot of your nation, you should be willing to give your life in a fight you had nothing to do with - how the deaths of many young men effects those back home who sometimes weren’t even aware that their loved ones had died not in a blaze of glory, but painfully and without recognition (Oh wow look, more use of context! Who’d’a thunk it?). The reader can feel the anger gently seething through the bared teeth in words that elicit empathy, while pointing out the sorrow - the only thing aside from death that a war guarantees. Most forms of art/expression are created with some emotion or meaning behind them - context adds to the understanding of this. The short poem has a rather sombre tone and is best read with the pace that the grammar implies, the drawing out of sentences and the rhetorical questions makes one think and bring their own interpretation and meaning to the poem - which is one of the main things artists aim to achieve, empathy through context.
