He was to the point where he thought it would just be easier to die than to live with all these struggles. Hamlet’s uncle Claudius killed his father which put a huge burden on his shoulders because he loved his father so much. What made it even worse was his mom, Gertrude, ended up marrying Claudius short after King Hamlet 's death. After the king was murdered, Hamlet saw his father’s “ghost” which told him that Claudius was in fact the one that killed him and that he wanted Hamlet to seek revenge for him by killing Claudius, but not to punish his mother for remarrying. He said it is not his place to do so and that heaven will judge her when it comes time.
The king’s greed and self loathe are his fatal flaws that ultimately lead to his downfall. Instead of doing things honestly and fair Claudius is a character who would rather play dirty and scheme behind peoples backs to find quick and easy solutions to his problems.Overall Claudius deceived his best friend, his nephew, and his wife to try to end up on top and in power but he ended up losing everything he had almost the exact same way that he received through a tragedy caused at the hands of another
Oedipus’s pride also was a large contribution to his downfall. He had so much that he became blind to things around around him and the things he was doing to himself and others. Everything that happens to him is brought onto him by him. He killed his father, he also married his mother. He chooses to ignore the warnings from Jocasta, he searches and searches for the killer, to soon find out it was himself.
He believed this message formthe ghost but wanted confirmation. Then Hamlet confirmed and found out for sure that Claudius killed his father. He had done so just so that he could marry Hamlet’s mother. He wanted her for himself so killing him was the way to Hamlet’s mother.

The poem "The Tell-Tale Heart" Is about a guy who makes everyone want to think that he is not insane by acting calm. He later wanted to kill his friend that he loved because he couldn 't stand his face. This is already telling us that the narrator is acting like a normal guy, but deep down he is a very insane person. For Example, In the Poem "The Tell-Tale Heart" He says, “If still, you think me mad, you will think so no longer when I describe the wise precautions I took for the concealment of the body. The night waned, and I worked hastily, but in silence” (Poe 2) This is a perfect example of a mentally insane person without knowing it because when he refers to him being mad, that means him being crazy.
Of course he was aggravated with discovering such news but he was also aware that he would be committing a sin that would lead him to hell in the afterlife. Unlike Hamlet, later in the play when Laertes is informed about his father’s death he reacts in a much more unpleasant way which might be hard to believe. He intrudes into the castle with in army of men looking to blame anything and anyone who might be responsible for the death of his father. He is lead to believe that Claudius could be the one behind it and threatens to kill him. “ If you desire to know the certainty of your dear father, is’t writ in your revenge that, swoopstake, you will draw both friend and foe, winner or loser?” (Act 4 Scene 5 Lines 148-154).
Haimon my son, so young, so young to die, I was the fool, not you; and you died for me.” Creon implores that he has been blinded by his pride and that he didn’t see that Haemon’s ultimatum and love for Antigone would be the reason why Haemon would kill himself.

By not listening to Teiresias or anyone, but only to himself because he believes what he is doing is right, the death of his loved ones were
Hamlet did kill Claudius, but did not see the result of his actions, because he is killed soon after. Hamlet’s fatal flaw was procrastinating on his actions; whereas Fortinbras could have suffered as a result of his father’s murder, but took a deliberate path and ended up successfully avenging his father and staying alive to tell his story. This not only leads the audience to sympathize with Hamlet, but causes the reader to realize could have been an overall successful
At the end Doodle does die and this essay is to say if the narrator is guilty or not. The narrator didn’t really love Doodle, was cruel to him, and thought him how to stuff out of his own selfishness, so thank to the gift of pride, the narrator is guilty for the murder of his brother Doodle. The narrator despised Doodle. When Doodle was born and alive- against what the doctor said- the narrator says, "I began to make plans to kill him by smothering him with a pillow" (Hurst 345). The narrator wants to kill his brother because he realized he would not die and because of that, won't be able to do anything physically like brothers do together.
