Others would say that after he accepts his father 's plea for vengeance, that he uses this cloak of madness as a disguise so Claudius cannot see his murderous intentions. As many researchers know there is much evidence for both his sanity, and his madness. But which is true? In the play, Hamlet is constantly talking to himself, which is already one sign of madness, but the things that he says to himself are murderous and even suicidal quotes. One of the quotes in the play being, “HAMLET: O, that this too too sullied flesh would melt, Thaw and resolve itself into a dew, Or that the Everlasting had not fixed His canon 'gainst self-slaughter!
For instance, the reason Hamlet killed Claudius was because Claudius had a violent personality which leads to him killing King Hamlet. Also, his self centered attitude leads him to embarking in the incestuous relationship he had with Gertrude. That bothered
The clumsiness of Fortunato and the outline of the murder in the catacombs are effectively shown in order to lead to the impulsive shock that Poe eloquently provides at the dénoument. Montresor is increasingly maniacal with each rigorous facet and perpetual action he takes to make sure his dear enemy pays. Although, his thoughts may represent how many people think, they also convey the state of action people are willing to take for animosity. In this story bitter murder solved a dilemma between two enemies but in reality cases may vary. The thought of a human can stun many to the point of
This stress put on him is what essentially created his tragic flaw. Hamlets tragic flaw is his indecisiveness to make decisions. This trait is demonstrated through the entire play and causes Hamlet to his own demise. When Hamlet has immediate suspicious of his fathers murder and later proof, he delays the murder, which is puzzling because the play is about revenge, and one would expect him to have done it earlier as he had ample amount of opportunities to do so. His indecisiveness has puzzled many.
Even though he does not know him, Tybalt still views Romeo as an enemy. This scene shows that there is unnecessary violence because of the feud. All the violence led to the deaths of people that both Romeo and Juliet care about. Additionally, the fight between Romeo, Mercutio, and Tybalt resulted in the deaths of Tybalt and Mercutio, and the banishment of Romeo. “A plague o’ both your houses!” (Shakespeare 1048).

Hamlet acts of violence is the plays way to push the play to its climax and to contribute the hidden meaning of the play. In act four, Hamlet lets his true internal emotions that has built up about his mother affair with his uncle, with so much rage Hamlet kills polonius in cold blood without even thinking, this scene contributes to the play because it show how Hamlet rage for revenge for his father has turned into real madness that will never end well for the characters who intertwine with him. In act 3, Hamlet goes off on Ophelia for crushing his heart and calls her
The phrases spilling out of his mouth are not an act. In the speech, Hamlet interrogates himself with questions that sane people would not be able to answer themselves. Hamlet has been overwhelmed with the conflicts that have been occurring around him. The conflicts escort him to becoming easily pressured and desperate in finding a solution about the death of his father. He is very impatient to seek vengeance for his father and wants to kill King Claudius by any means at all.
At the same time, he resents and hates his mother for killing his father, becoming strongly attached to her. This gigantic conflict in his feelings is the main cause of his insanity and resulting in his isolation, which is intensified by the knowledge that his mother's lover Claudius is constantly spying on him. He sees his father's ghost bringing him to the horrific event of his murder, so he pours out his heart to Ophelia, even though he knows she has also been sent to spy on him. The constant pressure from her father, Polonius, and Claudius to spy on Hamlet is a major factor in the increasing madness of Ophelia.

Plans to eliminate Macduff’s “wife,  babes, and all.../That trace him in his line” are constructed. If Macbeth had not shut off his emotions he would not have been able to make such an abhorrent decision. Comparatively, the recently crowned ruler of Scotland has become insensitive towards who still experience emotions.
Hamlet aspires to be like Pyrrhus in the way that he is cruel to his father’s murderer and is able to avenge him quickly.

Though Hamlet thought about killing Claudius immediately, he also thinks of the negative consequences of revenge rather than the positive ones which puts him at a standstill, “cursing like the whore he is”. As the play progresses through the plot, Hamlet experiences an epiphany after observing Fortinbras, expressing, “Why yet I live to say “this thing's to do”, / Sith
