I see thee yet, in form as palpable As this which now I draw” (Act 2. Scene 1). The dagger is tempting Macbeth to kill Duncan although Duncan is his king Macbeth goes through with his action and fight all reasons not to. At this moment Macbeth doesn’t know what 's real
1-28. Here, we see Macbeth struggle internally, as he must decide if he will put his morals aside and kill King Duncan for the power of being king himself. Initially, Macbeth starts planning the murder and creating detailed solutions to problems that may arise during it. We see this when he says, “If it were done when ‘tis done, then ‘twere well, It were done quickly.” (Act I Scene VII, ll.1-2.)
Claudius is a perfect example of greed. He killed the king in order to obtain the throne. As it said in the book ¨murder most foul, as in the best it is, but this most foul, strange, and unnatural.¨ Claudius was greedy and wanted what his brother had. Instead of
In the course of the play Haemon presents himself as a defender of Antigone 's actions and sense of morality which involves her determination to bury her deceased brother, Polyneices who has been sentenced as a traitor by Creon. The father and son part in anger, as he demands his father to make the right judgment for Theban society by granting Antigone’s request, while his father follows his obstinate path of aggression. Haemon’s actions eventually lead him to commit suicide due to his desperate situation, this eventually leads to the death of his mother when she also takes her own life. The death of his family ultimately lead to Creon 's insanity at the play 's climax. Haemon 's entrance in Antigone takes place right after he was informed of father’s verdict on Antigone’s life. He decides to reason with the king by explaining the sentiments of Theban people, while secretly attempting to plea for Antigone 's life.
The story of Hamlet by William Shakespeare is a story of betrayal, revenge, and intrigue. Hamlet, the title character discovers that his uncle killed his father and married his mother effectively stealing the throne. Hamlet decides he must kill his uncle Claudius as revenge for what he had done. However, as the new king, Hamlet isn't sure how to get to him, so he decides to fake madness, but his plan backfires as Claudius doesn't trust him and makes sure he is always watched. In his fumbled plan for revenge, Hamlet accidentally kills Polonius, forces Polonius's son Laertes to seek revenge against him, and drives Ophelia crazy causing her to kill herself.
The acts of violence throughout the play comes in three different forms; murder, suicide, and combat. Polonius is unexpectedly murdered, Ophelia goes mad and commits suicide, and Hamlet provokes a battle with Laertes that ends poorly for both men. All three of these violent acts can be traced back to clouded judgements, indecisiveness, anger, revenge, and heartbreak. Shakespeare created such acts of violence to keep the readers on their toes and informed, but also to invoke questions. Is Hamlet Insane?
Laertes however goes at obtaining his revenge in a completely different way than Hamlet does. While Hamlet spent every moment planning every little thing to perfectly get away with killing his father’s murderer, Laertes gathers a band of soldiers and charge around accusing everyone someone says might have done it. While Hamlet puts a lot of planning and secrecy into his approach, Laertes has a much more brutal way of avenging his
When Hamlet was talking with his mother,he heard a voice and killed it with his sword. He thought this voice was King Claudius but it was Laertes’ father,Polonius. After Hamlet accidentally kills Polonius, Laertes' father, Laertes seeks vengeance and plots together with Claudius to bring about the death of Hamlet in a fixed sword fight. Not only that,but Laertes also seeks to avenge his sister’s death as well.
evil is represented through Macduff, whom represents the ‘good’ and Macbeth, who has been completely consumed by his evil counterpart. Macduff has fled to England to plot against Macbeth, therefore, in retaliation Macbeth sends murderers to Macduff’s estate to slaughter his family and staff all-the-while claiming treason as a means of justification. Macbeth says,” The castle of Macduff I will surprise; seize upon Fife; give to th’ edge o’ th’ sword his wife, his babes, and all unfortunate souls…” (Act IV,scn i, ln 150-153) Macbeth no longer cares if he kills the innocent.
The supernatural motivates Macbeth comprehensively, to the extent that he murders King Duncan, Banquo and Macduff 's family. It galvanises him to do things that otherwise he would have thought were ludicrous. Firstly, the witches prophecies stimulated Macbeth to kill the ones he loves, as a consequence losing friends that were loyal to him. Additionally, Banquo 's ghost caused Macbeth to feel guilt and fear, causing him to rely on the witches’ predictions and having a false feeling of security. Finally, the vision of a bloody dagger that appeared right before the murder encouraged Macbeth to kill King Duncan.
Creon is Shocked with the deaths of his wife and son and says, “Oh no, another, a second loss to break of heart. What next, what fate still waits for me? I just held my son in my arms and now, look, a new corpse rising before my eyes- wretched, helpless mother-O my son.” (Sophocles 1420-25).
Getting to end of the story Macbeth has done everything to stay in power killing from killing the king framing the guards to killing his best friends and from their macbeth send people to macduff’s kingdom to kill his family. On quote for Macbeth final plays for saving his kingdom and making his final stand is when he is Macduff’s army is invading Macbeth trying to kill him Macbeth had no choice of killing Siward (V.ii.). This proves Macbeth has finally lost his cool know killing anyone in his way to try to stay in high power. Another good reason is because Macbeth doesn’t want to lose to Macduff and trying to get to him. Macbeth last quote or stand in the story is when make goes on into the war and goes ham and tries to protect his reputation, but later on meets up with Maduff and fight to the death.
Frantic, he orders a group of murderers to kill Macduff’s family. Consequently, when the time comes for Macbeth to encounter Macduff on the battlefield, he exhibits a moment of hesitation before proceeding to the duel. Feeling remorse for having Macduff’s entire family violently killed, Macbeth admits that he has a guilty conscience that he does not want to kill Macduff as well. “Of all men else I have avoided thee: / But get thee back; my soul is too much charged / With blood of thine already,” (Shakespeare 5. VIII.
Retribution causes the characters in Hamlet to act indiscriminately through resentment and feeling, instead of through reason. It depends on the standard of an eye for an eye; this activity is not generally the best unfortunate chore. Fortinbras, Laertes, and Hamlet were all hoping to retaliate for the passings of their fathers. They all followed up on feeling driven by the need for reprisal for their dad 's passings, and this prompted the destruction of two, and the ascent to force of one. Since the leaders of the three noteworthy families were each killed, the eldest children of these families felt that they expected to make some sort of move to retaliate for their dad 's passings; this need to convey honor to their particular families
