We informed the grieving Hamlet that “in the dead waste and middle of the night, Been thus encountered. A figure like your father”. He reacted strangely and made us gage, “never to speak of this that you have seen, Swear by my sword”. More than a fortnight later Hamlet dropped his marbles and went mad. Many suspected his love for the dearest Ophelia contributed to his madness.

When Macbeth hears a voice cry “sleep no more”(Mac.2.2.33), it was the beginning of many of his illusions. He suffered from guilt after killing King Duncan and wasn’t able to sleep. Macbeth goes on to have more illusions throughout the story such as when he saw the bloody ghost of Banquo. Macbeth was the only one that could see Banquo, making him think that “the table’s full”(Mac.3.4.46) when they went to sit down for dinner. Macbeth continues to see the ghost of Banquo throughout dinner causing him to have sudden and unexplained outbursts.Lady Macbeth tries to explain her husband’s odd behavior by saying “My lord is often thus, and hath been from his youth”(Mac 3.4.53-54).
As later written, Madeline’s disease causes her to become deathly ill and she passes away while the narrator is visiting. Following her death comes a disturbing tone in the story as the visitor finds out the Ushers only marry within their own family, and that Roderick and Madeline were not only mentally ill twins, but spouses too. That night, Madeline is buried in the basement with the excuse that doctors wanted to study her, however, it is later explained that Roderick held a secret as he declares, “We have put her living in the tomb!” (1839). In the climax of the story, Madeline breaks out of her casket and busts out of the chamber to find Roderick and the visitor upstairs. The trauma of seeing his sister causes Roderick’s heart attack and he dies there on the floor.
When traveling back home from a trip,“At the center of the skirmish slashing his sword this way and that, was King Nolan, still atop his trusted spirit-dane when a figure in a scarlet cloak passed through the fighting, untouched, and stabbed him through the heart with her pointed scepter.”(27)As you can tell in this she must be really evil because she just stabbed her brother in law in the heart. Redd is so insane that at one moment she was“Abandoning herself to her wrath, (so) she slipped into her mother’s dressing room. ‘Even you cannot take away what is mine by birthright,’ she snarled and placed a deadly pink mushroom on her mother’s tongue. Fed by the queen’s saliva, the roots of the fungus worked their way down the sleeping sovereign’s throat and strangled her heart.”(56) Her mother was a good queen and Redd was so angry and “Going to the dark side” you could say that she destroyed
Hamlet suspects his mother played a part in the death of King Hamlet and is filled with anger and vengeful thoughts. For most of the play, he has contemplated suicide and questioned his actions. He decided not to kill Claudius as he was praying and this makes him feel as though he has failed in his quest for revenge. Hamlet wants to show Queen Gertrude the error in her decision to marry Claudius and tells his mother: Come, Come, and sit you down; you shall not budge; You go not till I set you up a glass; Where you may see the inmost part of you. The
Hamlet’s conditions and actions indicate that he is insane. His father dies in the beginning of the play, and such a significant loss is bound to have effects on one’s mental state. Furthermore, his mother remarries quickly and shows little grief for the death of her husband. Then, his father’s ghost visits him and tells Hamlet that he was murdered by his mother’s new husband. It is obvious, and reasonable, that these occurrences would drive Hamlet to insanity.
She was the oldest child and only daughter of Jane Jennings and John Aikin, a dissenting clergyman and teacher. Shortly after her marriage, John Aikin had given up his pulpit for health reasons. Instead, he taught school and instructed Anna Letitia and her brother, John, four years her junior. She would learn French, Italian, and, despite her father’s misgivings, Latin and Greek. Anna was praised by her parents for her remarkable intellect; her mother claimed that at the age of twenty months Anna could already read quite well.
Othello furious and blind by jealousy is no longer able to think: in the last meeting with Desdemona, Othello accuses his wife of treason with Cassio and deceives her by saying that her alleged lover died.
