The feeling of getting revenge starts the signs of active nihilism in Hamlet. Hamlet goes through passive nihilistic views in most of the play and shows this through his lack of motivation to live. Hamlet says, “How weary, stale, flat and unprofitable seem to me all the uses of this world,” (I,2). Hamlet talks on how that everything in this world is useless. This suggests that he really does not have a reason to live.
This is mainly a result of both characters being idealists and rejecting change. Whilst both characters thrive in the past they struggle in reality with their individual distinct flaws. It is the faults in their characters that, not only makes them distinct, though is what leads to their ultimate fall at the end of each novel. Holden Caulfield and Jay Gatsby struggle with the present because they tend to reject reality by being overly self-interested. Holden Caulfield appears to not “fit in” anywhere and leads him to view most people as “phony” as an
He doesn't care if Abigail still has feelings and cant get over him, he only cares that he is not caught and thought of as a the bad and dishonorable man as he is. Throughout the play, when John Proctor acts selfish, trying to benefit himself, he shows that he actually is a very dishonorable
The character flaws of the Capulet’s, Friar Laurence, and Tybalt caused devastating drama of Romeo and Juliet. The Capulet character flaws brought on the demise of Romeo and Juliet. The flaw was that of apathy, which obscures their judgment towards

Thus Shakespeare’s insightful exploration of the notion of revenge exposes the eternal and moral dilemma all humans suffer remaining timeless and valid both in the Elizabethan era and the 21st
Many viewed McCandless to be egotistical due to the fact that he left his entire life to pursue his personal desires, and he didn’t think about how others would feel after he left, or if he did, he didn’t care. McCandless was also seen as ignorant. He was not only careless with the feelings of others, but also with his well being. He didn’t seem to know what would be awaiting him in the wild because he didn’t bring many supplies or do too much to prepare, which is what set him apart from a typical adventurer. Chris McCandless was an ignorant narcissist, which was made clear through his recklessness.
He wanted to be free. Overall, everyone just stayed jealous because they didn't have a big enough passion like he did for what he wanted. I don't think for a second he ever regretted his decision, he knew what he was getting into and still did it. Don't confuse courageousness for stupidity. People confused Chris for being stupid instead of being courageous.
Holden is unaware of his problem. When people try to help him he tells them there is nothing wrong with him. Holden wonders why he cannot connect with others. He blames it on other people when the source of his problems is himself. Holden’s past holds him back from connecting with others, but his fear of letting go of his past has him limited and scarred from making new relationships and connections.
Romeo ignores fates rule on his life, even though he blames fate for all of his issues. Because Romeo chooses to neglect the fact that it is his own decisions that cause his misfortunes, he causes more and more problems, which could have been avoided if he had realized and accepted his mistakes instead of blaming all
