Alack the day!”(4.5.) It shows that everyone thinks she’s dead just so she doesn’t have to marry someone. If tybalt hadn’t gone and acted all tough, Romeo would be there to stop the wedding, and there wouldn’t have been a wedding in the first place. Lastly, Tybalt is the most to blame for the events that occur in Romeo and Juliet because Romeo thinks she’s actually dead so he dies, then Juliet dies. (for reals this time) Juliet want to be with her husband “Yea, noise?
This is actually one of the reasons why Claudius is unable to punish Hamlet, because “Why to a public count I might not go, Is the great love the general gender bear him who, dipping all his faults in affection.” (4.7.20-21) The people favor Hamlet even after he wrongly murdered Polonius. Furthermore, Hamlet 's father returning as a ghost to tell Hamlet of Claudius’s crime, could convince any doubters of the validity of Hamlets claim. This does not happen however, and his whole revenge plan get everyone killed. Not only do innocent bystanders get killed, but also people Hamlet loves die. The most repulsing action though is Hamlet not taking responsibility for his actions.
That also causes him to attempt desperate measures and to get Juliet to fake her death. Not only does he lie, but he comes up with an idea rooted in dishonesty that he perpetuates. It satisfies Juliet, but it devastates the parents--after all, they lost a child! Friar Lawrence’s default to dishonesty and terrible planning skills ultimately cause the lovers’
Othello is presented as a respectful and honorable prince loved by all, but unexpectedly he grows an enemy, Iago. Iago vows to get vengeance on Othello because Othello made Cassio his lieutenant instead of Iago. Iago then takes control of fate in the play as he diabolically invents a plan to manipulate Othello into believing that Desdeomona was having an affair with Cassio. Furthermore, Othello’s tragic flaw was that he was gullible, therefore eventhough Othello was infatuated with Desdemona he chose to believe in Iago’s lies about Desdemona’s “affair”. For example, throughout the entire play, Othello committed irrational actions voluntarily because he was overtaken by jealousy that Iago developed with lies.
Hamlet, is unsure who he has stabbed and killed through the curtain, but hopes that it is Claudius. Hamlet concurs with his mother that his actions are reckless and brutal. He quickly refocuses his concerns back to addressing his mother's actions which he veiws as reprehensible. Hamlet’s need for revenge as a result of Claudius’s betrayal against him and his father encourages Hamlet to appear insane. His choice to appear insane drives him to try murder Claudius in an unforeseen way.
Before killing Duncan, he has "no spur to prick the sides of [his] intent, but only faulty ambition", displaying that he can still recognise the unnecessariness of his actions. If Lady Macbeth had not questioned his "act and valour", it is likely he would have avoided the first murder that lead to him being "in blood stepp'd in so far" that he saw no point to redemption. Macbeth displays an inherent desire to do good in his subconscious projecting his anxieties into "a dagger of the mind", and later, "Banquo's ghost". Further, his deep guilt is displayed only moments after his first murderous act by his inability to "say Amen". However, whilst Macbeth is guilty for the crimes as evident by his mind being "full of scorpions", the fact that he easily displays "unfelt sorry" makes clear his character is still growing progressively flawed.
Hamlet is stressed over his own father's murder, but he has to plan the right way to murder his Uncle Claudius. At one point, he thought he had finally murdered Claudius but it turned out to be Polonius, the chief counselor to the king . This murder only complicated things for Hamlet and caused him to be more confused about what to do with the situation. Shakespeare decided to depict Hamlet in a way that shows his flaws because it creates drama in the play. Without Hamlet's indecisiveness, the story could have ended very quickly with Hamlet either killing himself, or killing Claudius.
Looking at the overall story, Hamlet would be considered more villainous than his uncle. Yes, it is true that Claudius is corrupt and killed his brother for the throne. However, he tried to do his best as king and you could also say that Hamlet is making it difficult to do so. Claudius and Gertrude attempt to console him for the loss of his father and yet hamlet rejects everything to proceed on the path of revenge. Hamlet tries to blame his sanity, but what he doesn’t even realize is that he has created on his own sanity.
The big question is “Are Hamlet’s actions justified.” Well Hamlet was both justified and not justified. Some things he did were for a reason others were just possibly because he was pretending to have gone insane. Examples of this are the way Hamlet treated his own mother, Gertrude, and the way he treated his love Ophelia, one thing he is not justified in is delaying the murder of his uncle and his mother’s new husband Claudius. But the thing that is justified is actually killing Claudius. Hamlet is not justified by treating Gertrude the way he did.
