“Don’t grieve. Anything you lose comes round in another form.” This quote from Rumi has a great irony in the play Hamlet written by William Shakespeare. When Hamlet’s father dies, he returns as a ghost and asks Hamlet to take revenge for his death. There is a question, however, if Hamlet’s father really did come, or it was just part of his grieving process.
In Shakespeare’s Macbeth, Macbeth’s visions and hallucination’s play a role and contribute to the development of his character. Macbeth starts to see hallucinations the night he kills Duncan.

They make the guards get drunk so they could be able to get into Duncan’s room.
Claudius doesn’t confess and puts on quite a show during the murder scene that one would be puzzled as to why no one could see past his fake, friendly exterior. Claudius failing to confess just illuminates his truly malicious spirit. The ghost is also a character that sparks many questions within the play. Hamlet himself questioned whether the ghost was actually his father or the devil in disguise, trying to tempt Hamlet in committing a crime just as wicked as his step-fathers. However, Hamlet quickly dismisses that thought and convinces himself he needs to murder Claudius for revenge.
Hamlet at first was a little bit weary of the ghost but when the ghost told Hamlet that he was stuck in purgatory until revenge was sought out, hamlet was on board. Hamlet adored his father so when the ghost asked him to seek revenge, and when it told him to murder claudius it's all he focuses on for the majority of the novel. The effect seeking justice had on Hamlet was profound. He became obsessed with finding a proper way to kill the king.

In the same way, Hamlet is faced with a lot of challenges in a series. It all starts with Polonius, who was spying on Hamlet with his mother in the queen’s chamber and Hamlet stabs him. When King Claudius learns about it, he punishes Hamlet by sending him to exile in England. Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are sent by the king to make sure that Hamlet is handed to the King of England for execution, but he learns about it and arranges for their hanging. Then, Ophelia dies out of depression over his father’s death and Hamlet’s behavior, and her brother dies while trying to wrestle with Hamlet.
The literal symbolism of poison being poured in someone’s ear is the fact that it is poison must mean that lies are being told. In this case Hamlet lied about his madness and it also led to the death of many of the characters including Hamlet himself. So ultimately words, like poison, can kill and in this case many died.
