All of these characters seek revenge for the death of their fathers by taking the matter into their own hands: Fortinbras seeks war against Denmark (former King Hamlet killed Fortinbras’ father), while Laertes returns from Paris to Eslionor to fight for his dead father 's honor. However, the way these two characters carry themselves is much different than the way Hamlet does. He, himself speaks of Laertes and Fortinbras as people who are basic contrasts to him. The reader understands this in Act IV, Scene iv where Hamlet describes Fortinbras and his valiant character and promises to become somewhat more like him. Hamlet says, "Witness this army of such mass and charge/ Led by a delicate and tender prince,/ Whose spirit with divine ambition puff 'd/ Makes mouths at
Hamlet’s quest for finding a new definition of identity starts as Jardine expresses with the "“unlawful” marriage (which) has strengthened the line in Claudius’s favour, and to Hamlet detriment”. Therefore, it is Hamlet’s outrage against his uncle 's complot to kill Old Hamlet, in order to become the new king and achieve the higher position in the leader of Providentialism, which turns Hamlet into a threat. Hamlet’s attitude of defiance against the new king, and thus to the Body politic, creates a subversive figure whose challenging posture entails the possible loss of power, and the beginning of a new system of government based on democracy. As Barker says, “Hamlet asserts against the devices of the world an essential interiority. If the “forms, modes, shapes” fail to denote him truly is because in him a separation has already opened up between the inner reality of the subject (…) and an inauthentic
They also have somewhat similar motivation when it comes to the the decision and need to kill the current king from each story. Hamlet’s motivation is the fact that he was questioning about his father’s death as well as his mom’s strange reaction since she had already moved on to a new marriage with Hamlet’s uncle.

Shakespeare in A Midsummer Night’s Dream dealt with the theme of love and its four types, including loves many complications such as disappointment and confusion. The play rotates around the four loves, two being friendship love (Phileo) and romantic (Eros) or true love. Love is the most important theme of the play and the asymmetrical love between the four Athenians cause conflict throughout the play. There is a strong friendship love between, Hermia and Helena, however, their Phileo is tested throughout the play by their pursuit of true love which ultimately prevails. The power of Eros love is evident in the play as true love continuously triumphs over Phileo love.
No other love could compare to mine. what are you going to do for her? Macro: Now that Ophelia is gone, Hamlet can no longer deny his feeling for her and has a sense of regret for not cherishing her enough while he still had the chance. Hamlet reveals that his love was strong and that he is worried about her. Micro: Hamlet uses a hyperbole to express the magnitude of his feelings for Ophelia.
After Hamlet’s father was murdered, he was seek to revenge his father’s killer; but the real question here is who is the real killer, and why did he kill his father? Hamlet received a message from his father, returning in a ghost form, King Hamlet is calling upon his son to seek revenge on his brother Claudius. Claudius murdered his own brother, and seized the throne to become a King just like Hamlet. Claudius loved the power that his brother had, and he wanted the same opportunity and gifts just like him and to be the king of Denmark. Figuring out how Hamlet and Laertes is a liked and disliked is a 50/50 situation; most of the play they are similar.
After he poisoned the tip of his sword everything went downhill. Laertes was being greedy because he wanted his dad to be king and stay king. Many people say this book isn’t greedy but it’s revengeful. Yes it is; who wouldn’t want to get revenge on someone who murdered your father. Or revenge on someone who tried to kill you multiple times.
As a result of Macbeth’s ambition, he creates a path of destruction, thinking that in the end, he will gain ultimate power, authority, and success but really ends up establishing his own death. Macbeth’s ambition steers Macbeth in an aggressive and murderous trail to the throne. Macbeth’s ambition is his tragic flaw in which he suffers from. After the witches prophecy, Macbeth’s crave for authority led him to kill King Duncan. When Macbeth was crowned King, Macbeth entered dangerous paranoia, frightful that anyone with bloodlines to the throne, was a threat.
"(IV, v, 114-115). As shown, Laertes is taking his father’s death in a much more decisive stance than Prince Hamlet. Laertes goes straight to the issue and immediately demands vengeance on Claudius, whom he thinks is responsible for Polonius' murder. Laertes is ablaze with motivation and action, and says that he will throw "conscience and grace to the profoundest pit"(IV, v, 130). Unlike Laertes, Prince Hamlet doesn’t take any action when he was first informed about his father's death, which in comparison shows how both Prince Hamlet's and Laertes's personalities are in contrast with each
