I believe that hamlets actions were not justified but one is, because revenge isn’t a good thing, but Claudius is not just a murderer he is a stealer too.

Titus, in this scene, has started to lose his civility when he stabbed his own flesh and blood. Titus’ civility is diminishing because he showed no reason or thought into his careless action of killing his son, it was a senseless act. This act of murder was not civil because he murdered his own kin which is also seen as a barbaric act because barbarism is killing with no reasoning. Titus explicitly defines barbarism by not assessing the matter before stabbing his son for no other reason than for being in his way.

An Irony is evident in the eighth chapter of The Great Gatsby, due to the unexpected situation, when Wilson kills Gatsby; this episode is Ironic because of multiple reasons; At first readers should have expected instead for Tom to kill him due to the fact that Gatsby was having an affair with Daisy.
