As Hamlet expresses his anger at his mother, he hears a noise from the tapestry, and, thinking it is a rat, kills Polonius with his sword (3.4.24). Hamlet is overcome with revenge, and becomes easily irritable. As a result, he kills Polonius inadvertently. The fact that revenge overrides any rational instinct in Hamlet reminds students that vengeance causes illogical thinking, and, in turn, serious consequences. Towards the end of the play, Hamlet finally receives his chance at revenge in the form of a fencing match against Claudius.

Mary comes from the right country, class, and race; her father is an English government official and her family has connections with the English gentry. Her mother has beauty if not maternal feelings. Most important, Mary feels drawn to flowers and the earth, a sign of some redeemable element within her. She plays at gardening while in India, an exercise of the imagination, even if, in a scene that is supposed to demonstrate her bad character, she tells the boy who becomes interested in the sandy garden that she is making to "go away! ", "I don't want boys," earning herself the nickname of "Mistress Mary, quite contrary" (Burnett 17).

Readers of both texts can see a clear divide in how the concept of death is portrayed.Through The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and “I am Vertical”, the works of Mark Twain and poet Sylvia Plath reveal that the concept of death can be bliss for some and sickening for others by using diction, imagery, and point of
b. This scene describes what happens to Fermina immediately after the death of Urbino, including her grief and the reappearance of Florentino. c. This song first came to mind from a sentence on Page 17: “Remember me with a rose,” which inspired me to choose this song. The name of the song (also the first three words sung in the song) resonate strongly with themes of both the scene and the chapter. Roses are, of course, symbols of love, but the name of the song, as a song of death and tragedy, also refers to the color of blood.
Old King Hamlet's ghost describes his death in Act I, Scene 5 of Hamlet by relating what really happened to him.King Hamlet’s ghost tells Hamlet that he died by his brother’s hand, which is treachery at its finest.

For example, the narrator depicts the Vicario household as “almost completely covered with flowerpots”(Marquez 40). As “flower pots” protect the flower, the Vicario household tried to protect Angela Vicario’s virginity. Another conclusion that drawn by the excess flowerpots in the Vicario residence, is that they were trying to hide the fact of flawed purity in their house. The flawed purity that resided in their home was due to Angela supposedly not being a virgin, thus loosing her purity. At Angela’s wedding the narrator describes her as “without a viel and bridal bonquet”, hence providing more evidence to the loss

“A Streetcar Named Desire” is a play which mostly revolves around Blanche’s delusional states. As from the beginning of the play till the end we are propelled into a world of truth and reality which is being hidden through the use of light. Light is a symbolism of truth and reality and thus avoiding light could be interpreted as hiding the truth. This is evident in the line “her delicate beauty must avoid a strong light”. The use of the adjective “Strong” allows the reader to visualize the scene of Blanche shying away from the light.
This is a direct link with “La Belle Dame Sans Merci”, as they both portray both sides of love. The writer describes girl as a “sweet flower”, which both describes her beauty and foreshadows the further events as the flowers last for a short time and die. Whatsoever, there is an underlying image of violence here, such as the effect that love has upon the speaker who becomes “deadly pale”, which opposes the two sides, the female had “bloomed like a sweet flower”, while the speaker, a male, has “turned pale as deadly pale”, this is another link to “La Belle Dame Sans Merci” as they both portray the females as beautiful and magical and males as pale and fading and both blame the opposite gender for their state. There is a such pattern that the endings of the destructive love follow and it is the fact that the “luckless side” almost never gets over their lost loved
