I believe that the killing of Claudius was justified but the waiting was not. In DOC F it talks about if Hamlet were justified, in some people’s eyes it was and others it was not. One of the reasons that Hamlet had to wait too kill his was because after the play Claudius was praying and Hamlet wanted to kill him when he was doing something bad (DOC E). In the end I think Hamlet was justified in the killing of Claudius because he killed his father. I believe that Hamlet did the right thing killing Claudius because he killed Hamlet’s father.
I think that because, at the end he got his revenge and killed him, it might’ve took a long time to do it and it did cost people’s lives, but he got his revenge. In document F it says, “For God only can take vengeance of the sole,” In document e, it says, that Claudius, started praying because he knew that hamlet knows about his murder. At the end of his prayer he says, “My words fly up, my thoughts remain below: Words without thoughts never to heaven go.” In document A, it says that the killing of Claudius is justified because, Claudius lied about killing the old king, Claudius also stole his brother’s wife, life, and his crown.
Hamlet does delay his task to avenge his father but, he does at the right time and he does it properly. Before killing Hamlet needs to confirm if Claudius is a murderer and if he can trust a ghost. In the beginning of the play, Hamlet is told by the ghost of his father that Claudius killed him, shortly after the ghost tells Hamlet to avenge his father’s death. Hamlet believes the ghost and considers killing Claudius but, Hamlet double checks himself to make sure Claudius actually did kill the king by exposing his guilt after he sees a play similar to Claudius’ situation. This all is to make sure that Claudius actually killed
The ghost told Hamlet about how he was murdered by Claudius. The ghost told hamlet how he was going to get revenge. He wanted to torment Claudius and then kill him. Even after the king died he is still greedy trying to get revenge. This shows even though the king is dead or someone is dead they will still try and get revenge because they are greedy and don't want to give up their belongings or title.
Hamlet is essentially a story based on revenge. The play opens with the outside guards seeing the phantom of the recently deceased King Hamlet. When his son is summoned to him, he tasks him to get revenge for his death. Young Hamlet then spends the following days planning every move of his revenge until he accidentally kills the father of Laertes in an act of misguided rage. This mix up causes Hamlet’s well thought out plan to spiral out of control and puts Laertes on a quest to avenge his father’s murder just as Hamlet is.
“ Lo, here I lie, never to rise again. Thy mother’s poison’d. I am no more. The King, the King’s to blame” (Shakespeare 126). Laetres realized he has been trapped by Claudius, he points out Claudius as the murder.
The acts of violence throughout the play comes in three different forms; murder, suicide, and combat. Polonius is unexpectedly murdered, Ophelia goes mad and commits suicide, and Hamlet provokes a battle with Laertes that ends poorly for both men. All three of these violent acts can be traced back to clouded judgements, indecisiveness, anger, revenge, and heartbreak. Shakespeare created such acts of violence to keep the readers on their toes and informed, but also to invoke questions. Is Hamlet Insane?
He deceives his friends and family into thinking he has gone completely mad, but it is his actions that prove to the reader that he may not be as mad as the king and queen believe. His unwillingness to kill Claudius because “he is a-praying.. And so he goes to heaven; And so I am revenged: And so he is scanned:” (III/iii/76-79) proves that he still has some reason and has put some thought into this murder.
Macbeth 's Bloody Ambition “In the end, cowards are those who follow the dark side.” (Yoda). In William Shakespeare 's play Macbeth the character Macbeth feeds into his own ambition to become King, after he had this encounter with three witches and they told him, his so called destiny. Macbeth is a coward because he didn 't fight his temptation to be King, he fell for the Dark Side because he did great evil to get there. In order to become king he murders some of the closest people to him.
Macbeth’s lust for power has overtaken him, that is why he hired assassins to kill Banquo and his son Fleance. Out of spite of Fleance for being heir to the throne, but it backfires on him and Fleance escapes. Macbeth then became unstable after killing his best friend; seeing the deceased ghost and speaking of things that did not make any sense. Macbeth is deranged, losing himself because of the murders he had partaken in. ” Things without all remedy should be without regard: what 's done is done.”
Macbeth, written by William Shakespeare, is a play that mainly focuses on one common theme of insanity. Macbeth gradually becomes plagued by intense guilt as his desire for power drives him to attain his goals by any means necessary, including committing murder. He kills Duncan in cold blood in order to become King, has Banquo killed by three murderers because he wishes to maintain his position as King, and finally, he has Macduff’s family slaughtered. Each of these occurrences takes place because of Macbeth’s will to be King, or they are a result of his guilt. Nonetheless, they are all completed of his free will, which is what causes him to deteriorate mentally.
