Hamlet’s insanity in an act of cheating invented to draw away the attention from his distrustful deeds as he attempts to collect proof against Claudius (Smith 174). Hamlet discloses to Horaito his deceitful scheme to feign madness. Additionally, Hamlet plans to deceive his mother, Getrude, during a meeting in her clandestine. During the interaction, Hamlet would seem to intend to harm; he will direct the cruelty of Nero, alleged to have killed his mother, to assist him “speak daggers” to his mother; however, he has no intent of committing a crime. In 1 Henry IV, deception has been used by some characters to hide some crimes or suspicious actions.
If he ends up landing the Mayweather fight the decision would be based on pure skill rather than on merit. Mayweather chooses fights based on neither of those factors, but instead based on revenue, which makes Khan, who has a huge fan following, the most sensible choice by Mayweather's standards. At 38 years old, Mayweather is certainly no spring chicken, with visible physical decline in speed and reflexes, particularly with movement -- but he's still one hell of a ring tactician and perhaps the most intelligent fighter in the history of the sport.
Macbeth wanted Banquo dead because he did not want Banquo to be the one to say that he killed King Duncan. The author says, “He tries to defend his father when they are attacked but is not old enough or skilled enough. He just manages to escape with his own life” (General OneFile 1). When Banquo was killed, his son, Fleance, escaped before he was going to get killed. Macbeth sent the murderers to Fleance because he was with his father at that time.
Shakespeare’s play, Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, centers around Hamlet’s contemplation of killing his uncle in order to avenge his father’s death. His decisions and values determine his fate. However, Hamlet’s intended action to avenge his father’s death is continuously postponed due to his moral dilemma. However, this moral dilemma causes him to make the decisions he does, and therefore, demonstrates the theme of his uncertainty versus his faith. Not only does faith stop him from taking alternative routes to achieve his goal, but his uncertainty causes him to either delay his revenge or make the wrong decisions.
It is only an inference that Edmund would not have been happy with Edgar’s status and would then want his father’s. Edmund had to first convey his dedication to his father in order to usurp him. That is where his plan with Edgar comes into play. The reader is made aware that Gloucester has fallen for Edmund’s schemes when he is exclaims “where is the villain Edmund” (II.i, 37). Edmund, like a snake, is able to trick his father into believing that he is the ‘good’ son pinning all the blame on Edgar.
All the thematical decisions he made kept the story intriguing, and mystifying. Being tempted by something you want is not fun, but you can overcome by telling yourself that the consequences are not worth it. In the story of Anastasia, Rasputin a power envying mad man sold his soul for the power to kill the entire royal Romanov family. In the end Rasputin was killed by princess Anastasia. Temptations are scary and hard to resist, but you can do it if you have faith in yourself, and if you believe that you can overcome
Polonius also says, “Take this from this, if this be otherwise” (II, ii, 168), which means that they can cut off his head if he is wrong. Polonius uses this hyperbole to show his confidence in his theory. I find this to be surprising as the audience knows that Hamlet’s madness is not caused by Ophelia. Instead, it is caused by the fact that Claudius might have murdered his father. I wonder if they will find out the real cause of Hamlet’s madness.
In this passage from the play, Hamlet reveals that since he can’t show his emotions and take action, he plans to have the actors perform a play that is similar to his father’s murder to entice a reaction from Claudius to determine if he is in fact the murderer. This clever plan of Hamlet allows it to be known just how intelligent he really is. But this plan also allows a view on yet another theme in the play, revenge. Revenge is a major key in Hamlet simply because a great amount of the plot is based on vengeance. In this particular portion, Hamlet is planning how to reveal Claudius so he can partake in revenge.
In many scenes Hamlet can be seen as insane, this is because he wanted everyone to see that so he can get away with his bad manners/acts such as the crimes he had made. Likewise, due to his father’s death, in which he focused on, he wanted to get revenge and ended up acting abnormal along with being “mad” in the situations of crime. Consequently, Claudius had saw that Hamlet could be dangerous in situations such as Act 3, Scene 4 were he acted upon impulse, and so that’s when Claudius thought of making Hamlet go to England, and he did. Seeing that the relation he had with Ophelia led to her own suicide in the “Murder of Gonzago” is where we can see how his role impacted others. Being that Ophelia loved Hamlet, his role-play did ruin their relation
In The Scarlet Letter written by Nathaniel Hawthorne, contains a peculiar man named Roger Chillingworth who kills for revenge. In the same manner in Moby Dick written by Herman Melville Captain Ahab also sets his mind on revenge. These two men have a real desire to do what they think will make them right but actually puts them lower than others. Roger Chillingworth handles his situation with Dimmesdale quite interesting. Not only did he seek revenge on Dimmesdale, but he also wanted him to be dead.
Mariota also won the Heisman Trophy 2 years after Manziel as a Junior year and was the first Oregon Duck to win the Heisman. Both players were expected to be top prospects in the NFL, but Manziel couldn’t get enough of the lights and

Heroes in Greek epics mutually express a few common character traits. These traits define a hero in almost every Greek epic.

Muhammad Ali's strength, courage, positive impact, and outstanding accomplishments validate him as a modern day epic hero in the eyes of millions of people.
Recently, in Dr. Buttino’s Moviemakers and Scholars Series class we had the privilege of watching a documentary film called, Fighting the Mob: The Story of Carmen Basilio. In perspective, this was very special because the story is held dearest by our own, Dr. Buttino, as he was directly involved in the story and in the making of the film. The ESPN documentary, Fighting the Mob: The Story of Carmen Basilio, was created to inform the American people about the corruption involved in the sport of boxing during the nineteen-fifties. However, I believe it is also meant to inspire the American people, especially Italian-Americans.
