With time the both went crazy living double essentially. In our society, whether in relationships or attempting to change ourselves to “fit in” with a different social group. In Act two: scene three, line 141 it says, “There’s daggers in men's smiles.” What it means by this is that we never truly know the intentions of someone else until they are revealed to us. Just like in Shakespeare’s Macbeth we see that throughout the play no one realizes who has killed the king until it is revealed. As for the characters in this story it drove them to madness as often times we do see that.
Claudius’s biggest betrayal is how he became king. As he confesses while he prays, “A brother’s murder. Pray can I not, though inclination be as sharp as will: my stronger guilt defeats my strong intent” (III.iii.39-41). Claudius is admitting to himself that he betrayed his family murdered his brother in order to become king. Claudius and Polonius both meet their demise after countless betrayals of those who trusted
The personality of such characters as Hamlet from William Shakespeare’s play Hamlet is much remarked upon. However, it is even more meaningful to analyze changes in Hamlet’s character throughout the play. As Hamlet becomes more driven in his revenge, his actions lose morality and gain consequences. In fact, Shakespeare uses the relationship between a character’s cruelty and the meaning in the pain they cause to comment on the cyclically destructive nature of cruelty. Evidently, Hamlet is an excellent example of just such a character.
Hamlet was left to feel like he was Betrayed when he found out that his Uncle murdered his father, In the quote “Ay, that incestuous, that adulterate beast, With witchcraft of his wit, with traitorous gifts- So to seduce!- won to his shameful lust The will of my most seeming- virtuous queen.” the techniques used in this quote was “Won to his shameful lust The will of my most seeming- virtuous queen.” This metaphor shows that Claudius desired to be King and so he manipulated Queen Gertrude to marry him. This is one of the motivations that Claudius had for killing King Hamlet. Hamlet was also betrayed by not just his Uncle Claudius but his friends Guildenstern and Rosencrantz. They were spying on him and ordered to kill Hamlet by Claudius until Hamlet found out what they were trying to do, and was smart enough to know what was going on. Hamlet acted fast and ended up getting revenge on his friends which sentenced them to death.
The threat of Communism and the Red Scare put fear of group mentality into many people during the late 1940-50s. The authors of 1984 and The Crucible used their respective works to comment on the social injustice going on in their own lives, which connects to injustice the exists throughout time anywhere in the world. Miller wrote his play, set in 1692, about Puritans and the Salem witch trials because he believed that, similar to his trial for HUAC in the 1950s, the trials in Salem were caused by false accusations and mass hysteria led by powerful individuals. In 1984, Orwell creates a world in the near future that shows group mentality and its threat to conform society with the government. In The Crucible, Arthur Miller illustrates a world
In the end, it left both him and her in a worse off situation than before. In other words, he had a chance to have a personal conversation because she was willing to listen. Instead, he ravaged his chances of making the situation better. In conclusion, the Jarrett family dealt with issues of silence and violence. Moreover, their numerous issues originated from their negligence to consolidate each other which sadly elicited an inconclusive ending of the mother withdrawing from her family.
Who Killed the Great Gatsby Many people don’t want to see their loved ones and friends pass away by unnatural causes when they had so much potential. Sadly Jay Gatsby took this route to his grave.

It’s just hard to go through life remembering someone important telling you a message that ends up not existing. It reminded me of my life when I was a child. My cousin Natalie always told me we was going to be best friends because our bond was so strong. Now it’s not the same as before the bond is broken and it makes me sad because I truly do miss the strong bond we had.
In the tragedy of William Shakespeare’s Hamlet, the dysfunctional relationships amongst family members is emphasized through the use of reoccurring parallelism between the conflicts that occur in Polonius’ family and the royal family’s conflicts. For instance, the lack of trust that Polonius and Claudius have for their sons leads them both to commission spies to strategically find out information about them. For instance, Polonius asks Reynaldo to inquire on the behaviour of his son, Laertes, by spreading false rumours to his acquaintances, in order to see if any of them counters those false claims. He informs him that through doing this, “your bait of falsehood takes this carp of truth / And thus do we of wisdom and of reach / With windlasses
