To die,to sleep; No more; And by a sleep to say we end the heartache, and the thousand natural shocks that flesh is heir to, it 's a consummation devoutly to be wished. (Act3 Scene 1 Line 64-71) The speech in Hamlet not only reveals the death but also spreading rot and decay. Hamlet is quite struggling about to live or to die. At the beginning of the play, he is grieved at his father’s death and his mother’s hasty marriage with his uncle. He decided not to die at last.
He is much less emotional than Hamlet and Laertes, as he is logical in his action. Both Hamlet and Fortinbras plan to avenge their father’s death from the start of the story ( Lynch 2). They both feel cheated of the crown after their father’s unrightful passing and that their uncles stripped them of their title. Hamlet is a soldier with no real power and seems to be okay with it; he doesn 't want to fight. Yet, Fortinbras is a soldier that takes it into his own hand to have power and loves to fight.
He is acting as any other mediocre person would. It is not possible to classify someone an insane person when he is acting or reacting like any other modern person would. The wise Hamlet is viewed more like modern day men. Modern day men are sometimes unhinged but make intelligent choices as well. For example, Hamlet is a wise man or a boy.
Lockie Leonard: Human Torpedo Even though Lockie is sometimes grumpy and is involved in conflicts with his fellow students and teachers, he often surprises others with his acts of kindness and consideration. The protagonist of the novel, Lockie Leonard is a compIcated mix of both negative and positive characteristics. This is seen through his attitude and behaviour throughout the novel. Attitudes influence our choices, which directly affect our responses. There are times where Lockie is found in a positive mood, and usually approaches the matter at hand with a positive attitude, but there are also times where Lockie isn’t in such a good mood and often hurts others because of his choices.
It is a motive to let you achieve the impossible, not even death would stop you from gaining your honor. In the play Hamlet, we find that Hamlet meets with his father’s ghost, and about his father murder by the hands of blood related brother, Hamlet takes a decision, to revenge and restore the glory back
In Shakespeare’s Hamlet, acts of ruse play a critical role in the life of the megalomaniac and egocentric Claudius. Being extremely heartless and selfish, he betrays his family and peers countless times solely to remain as the royal leader of Denmark. Initially, Claudius appears to be an innocent king with solely good intentions for his state and his family. Although he lacks apathy towards Hamlet mourning his father’s death, as shown when he advises him, “Tis unmanly grief,” he seems to only say it out of “fatherly” advice (I.ii.98). However, a read flag goes up when a ghost, alleging to be Hamlet’s father, tells him Claudius poisoned his father, which is also Claudius’ own brother, in order to become king.
Creon disagrees strongly and becomes inflamed towards Haemon. Another flaw of Creon is that he is a hypocrite who does not stick to his own words, thus perjuring himself. In his initial speech he says “ - a man who does not take the best advice there is - such a man is the very worst of men and always will be.”. But later in the play Creon doesn’t listen to the advice of those around him, in the most basic sense he is saying that he is the worst of men. These tragic flaws work against him as the story progresses.
In this soliloquy, Hamlet’s tone changes from being frustrated and irritated to sure, powerful, and bloodthirsty. Hamlet begins speaking in a frustrated manner, beating himself up that although there is so much around him that should motivate him to take revenge against his uncle, he has not. Shakespeare’s diction, such as “dull” (4.4.35) and “beast” (4.4.37) show Hamlet’s disgust with only living like an animal, just sleeping and eating. Hamlet is frustrated since he has been lazy, which was not God’s intention. He cannot even fight for a worthy cause dear to his heart, but Fortinbras’ men die for a meaningless reason.
By proving himself to be loyal he can have an easier way of influencing the other characters. He also has another advantage of being “loyal”, it means that the characters will let him do what he pleases without suspicion because they trust him so much. In the beginning of Othello, Iago protests against Othello to Roderigo “I follow him to serve my turn upon him” proving that Iago clearly does not want to honestly follow Othello. Roderigo is affected by this, because he believes him and keeps letting Iago use him unknowingly, leading to his death. Although Roderigo is misled by Iago’s he still keeps his mental and emotional state normal with little doubt, until the end.
Hamlet is his biggest enemy and in the end, Claudius didn’t defeat Hamlet, he defeated himself. Claudius didn’t do anything special or out of the ordinary to kill Hamlet and yet, Hamlet unraveled himself. Hamlet could have killed Claudius when the ghost came to him and told him to but instead, warned Claudius that he knew by putting on the play. Then Claudius discovered Hamlet knew and that is what set Claudius off to start planning how to kill him. If Hamlet had just acted, Claudius would have died and gone to hell.
Nick has what many of the other characters lack — personal integrity — and his sense of right and wrong helps to raise him above the norm. He alone is repulsed by the false nature of the socialites. He alone is moved by Gatsby 's death. When everyone else leaves after Gatsby 's death, Nick, can’t believe that none of Gatsby 's associates will even pay their last respects. He steps in to do what is right.
He in the beginning went through depression which is quite normal, when a person dies naturally the first reaction is to get sad but when the ghost (Hamlets father) came and informed Hamlet that he didn’t just die but in fact was murdered, changed the who perspective and thought process of Hamlets decisions. When his anger took over he began to plot and plan how he would extract revenge on his uncle, now step father king Claudius. So when he sees the king praying he thought what a perfect opportunity but later changed his mind because he thought that since he was praying that when he died he would go up to heaven but Hamlet wanted him to suffer just like his father did. So when actors came into town, he thought what better way to mess with his conscience then having what the king did be based on a true story and so the reaction that the king had was exactly what Hamlet wanted. However in the play Hamlet was depicted as a mad man when under the surface he was very smart and calculated.
