While Hamlet spent every moment planning every little thing to perfectly get away with killing his father’s murderer, Laertes gathers a band of soldiers and charge around accusing everyone someone says might have done it. While Hamlet puts a lot of planning and secrecy into his approach, Laertes has a much more brutal way of avenging his

Hastily while Huck’s father is still gone he kills a pig and spreads the blood all over the house to make it seem as though it killed him and set out to Jackson’s island where he discovered a live campfire while in search for food. This lead Huck to search for others on the island as he soon realizes he was not alone.
Candy suspected that he was going to get canned soon so he knew had to do something. At the moment that Lennie and George articulated their feelings on where they were going to live he decided that was a good idea and it soon became his dream too.
