Hamlet feels betrayed by his mother and feels like he can 't trust anyone. Shakespeare gives Hamlet these struggles in the play to amplify the mental and psychological events that make the reader feel bad about what all happened to Hamlet. Hamlet eventually kills Claudius like his father told him to, but only did it after his mother, Gertrude, drank the poison that Claudius meant to give Hamlet.

Skylar Neese, unsuspecting like Caesar, had gone to enjoy a night with her friends that ended in her death. Her supposed best friends’ cause for the murder was “we just didn’t like her anymore” similar with Caesar, his death the result of the fear of tyranny (Sandt). Both of their deaths were a result of betrayal, dislike, and fear. Caesar, many times put trust in his friends and confided in them, his reason being “because I love you, I will let you know” (2.2.79). In Skylar Neese’s case, though she was said to be fighting with her friends at the time, she still had trust and faith that they wouldn’t hurt her; unfortunately,

What could I possibly do?” and she was scared also because of the law “Bury him! You have just said the new law forbids it.
“My name is good in the village ! I will not have it said my name is soiled! Goody Proctor is a gossiping liar!” (Abigail 12; Act 1). In my opinion is the only reason why she act out is because of her parents death and how it happened in front of her that tragedy damaged her life. Since then she been taking advantage of people like Proctor.
Abigail is to blame for most of the events that have took place in this play. She is the one who caused the witchcraft to be brought back up because she was dancing in the woods doing witchcraft with other girls. Abigail is a victim of her society in “The Crucible”.
