Hamlet turns the tables on her, accusing her of a most grotesque lust and claiming that she has insulted her father and herself by stooping to marry Claudius. In the course of their interview, Polonius hides behind a tapestry; at one point, he thinks that Hamlet is going to attack Gertrude and cries for help. Hamlet stabs Polonius through the tapestry, thinking he has killed Claudius. When he finds that he has merely killed a "rash, intruding fool," Hamlet returns to the business of "speaking daggers" to his mother.

Towards the beginning of the story when Creon wants to punish her for burying her brother, Antigone begs him to kill her, as “[His] talking is a great weariness.” (2.95) Not only is she trying to show disrespect by rushing the king, but is doing so arrogantly, putting herself above him for that brief moment. Although she starts off in the play as this naive and arrogant character, towards the end she develops a sort of humility and knowledge that she is doomed in a fate out of her control. She realizes fate is “Operative for ever, beyond man utterly. [Antigone] knew [she] must die...” (2.64). She accepts knowledge of her end, and lives on with it.
From a young age, Queen Cersei started her evil off with the jealousy that fueled her to push her best friend into a well, ultimately killing her. Hereafter, Cersei continued to murder if necessary to the point where redemption is out of the question. Which is comparable to Macbeth in the way he plotted clandestine deaths of the people around him and killed to achieve his only desire; the throne. Queen Cersei could not escape the evil that fixated itself on her, or in other words, all the perfumes of Arabia could not sweeten her little hand just like Lady Macbeth. Regardless, Lady Macbeth brought up an interesting topic if evil can really be taken away from a person.
