In the play many characters are blind to the truth and are changing the path of life. In The Crucible the characters who are blind to the truth, do not realize they are being deceived and they end up deceiving others, which is best illustrated by Judge Danforth, Reverend Parris, and Abigail Williams. Judge Danforth is deceived by Reverend Parris, and intern deceives Herrick, Hathorne, Reverend Parris, and himself. Parris says, “’He’s come to overthrow this court, your Honor”’ (Miller 185).

Creon is a scary king because the sentries throw dice to decide who will tell King Creon this terribly bad news, no one wants to tell the him. Haemen, King Creon’s own son is afraid to confront his own dad that is actions are wrong.
In this story there is an event that is commonly called a “play inside of a play”, and by using this in the story it reveals the effectiveness of using deceit to pull the truth out of people, to see their true nature and what they’re capable of. Although everyone is using trickery, Hamlet’s deception is quite possibly the cruelest out of everyone because it causes the most deaths. In this story, Hamlet deceives basically everyone in the play even himself. He deceives himself into thinking what he is doing is warranted and that his uncle must burn in hell for what he has done and this is why he hides behind his fake insanity. The major question that is still argued about to this day, regarding Hamlet, is “is hamlet insane?”.
In the play The Tragedy of Hamlet Prince of Denmark by William Shakespeare, Hamlet is a character full with complex emotions and revenge that confronts the readers or audience with his scenes of violence. Hamlet acts of violence is the plays way to push the play to its climax and to contribute the hidden meaning of the play. In act four, Hamlet lets his true internal emotions that has built up about his mother affair with his uncle, with so much rage Hamlet kills polonius in cold blood without even thinking, this scene contributes to the play because it show how Hamlet rage for revenge for his father has turned into real madness that will never end well for the characters who intertwine with him. In act 3, Hamlet goes off on Ophelia for crushing his heart and calls her
Throughout the play Hamlet, the main character Hamlet is in question of being insane. While he may at times seem to be insane Hamlet is actually pretending. Hamlet fakes his insanity in order to fool people around him so he can exact his revenge for his father’s murder. When Hamlet is not around other people his seemingly insane personality disappears only to be replaced with an intelligent and logically sound mind. Insanity, craziness, or madness is a spectrum of behaviors characterized by certain abnormal mental or behavioral patterns.
The references cause the plot to change because there is confusion which causes two characters to argue and reveals things about the play and helps it move along. Hamlet presents many unanswered questions, many about Hamlet's sanity, Ophelia’s death is also a questionable, she seemed to have actually went mad after her father’s death and Hamlet being sent away. They could not tell whether or not her death was actually a suicide because she ended up going mad. Each reference of sanity and insanity are significant because they add confusion, drama, emotional stress and humor to Hamlet.This “Insanity” that Hamlet has is a way for him to vent his anger and emotions towards people in the play, Shakespeare seems to have wanted the audience to question yet understand what is happening in the
Anger can negatively affect somebody's decisions and behavior, and in this case, its Holden Caulfield from The Catcher in the Rye and Hamlet. The way the authors, J.D Salinger and William Shakespeare portray anger, is by exposing who Hamlet and Holden really are. Both characters relate to severe anger towards an unnatural or unfortunate death of a loved one. They also both physically and mentally interact with their fallen relative, and are illustrated as mad or crazy. The characteristic traits that Holden and Hamlet share, define who they really are.
As a result,Hamlet can never trust his uncle’s wicked ways to get into people’s heads. Hamlet was betrayed by his friends because they worked for Claudius and gave orders from him,which caused him to not trust them either. For example,when Claudius summons Guildenstern and Rosencrantz to spy on Hamlet,Claudius said,”see if you can make Hamlet feel better and see if you can get info on what he is up to”(Shakespeare 87). This behavior shows evil purposes and twisted words. Claudius sends Hamlet’s friends to make him happier but also use them to see if Hamlet is mad.
Numerous commentators offer in Hamlet by William Shakespeare, Hamlet might be distraught. In Hamlet by William Shakespeare frenzy can be viewed as the domino impact. The peruser sees Shakespeare has composed characters whose franticness prompts their inescapable passing. Albeit because of Hamlet 's activities all through the play, unmistakably he, truth be told, isn 't frantic, however mindful of his activities and what he is doing. For example, franticness is characterized as the quality or state of dysfunctional behavior or derangement.This is something in which the peruser finds in others characters of the play, yet not especially in Hamlet himself.
In comparison, the inconsistency between diction depicts the power dynamics observed in the play. Shakespeare often uses Prospero’s servant, Ariel and slave, Caliban to portray the differences in the hierarchy of the play. As observed by the audience Prospero often uses threats and insults to communicate and assign task to Caliban, hence “...tonight thou shalt have cramps, side stitches that shall pen thy breath up.”(I.ii.325-326) Prospero threatens Caliban with pain after his refusal to do work, because he feels as if the isle belongs to him due to the fact that it was inhabited by his mother first. Caliban continues by stating that “I am all the subjects that you have, Which first was mine own king; and here you sty me In this hard rock, whiles you do keep me from The rest o’ th’ island”(I.ii.341-344) This exchange between
