Get thee to a nunnery.” (III.i.136-138) On his search for justice, Hamlet has lost all love for the girl he once loved and no longer wants anything to deal with her. For this reason, Hamlet represents a dynamic character as he changes to this cruel and violent person who has lost all trust in people. The conflict that sparks this change is the internal struggle that Hamlet goes through due to the loss of his father and the search for justice in order to redeem his father’s death, which results in Hamlet abandoning his morals. Prior to the climax, Hamlet has the perfect opportunity to kill Claudius while he is praying, but he decides not to because he wants him to go to hell so he will kill him when he is sinning.

This whole opening passage filled with the negative qualities of her family is ironic as she explicitly reveals every secret she desires to keep from her new date despite her efforts in avoiding her family. Additionally, Isabel and her new boyfriend, as well as Isabel’s parents, are watching a “Spanish domestic drama”. This is ironic because the event de Botton unfolds is a domestic drama in itself.

The floating dagger is the starting point of Macbeth’s peculiar imaginations, and portray his worries and guilt for what is to come and the future. In the back of his conscious, Macbeth perceives he will have to commit dark, horrible crimes to become and stay king. He even questions the possibility in the first act of the play and states, “Against the use of Nature? Present fears are less than horrible imaginings.
