It inflames him to damn his uncle as well as kill him. Again it is against his conscience to commit murder. As Prosser indicated in his book Hamlet and Revenge, “that a man who refuses to follow the dictates of virtue cease to be a man, since he cannot be partaker of the divine condition, and is turn into a beast. By this view, the decision to surrender the will to God, for example, to obey the command against private vengeance, would not be ignoble retreat but the noblest act of which the free will is capable. It is these view that Hamlet challenger in the two great soliloquies of moral choice.
As it is demonstrated when Charles desired to burn down Tomas’ workshop, envisioning the destruction and harm he desired to cause towards Tomas. However, Charles ability to recognize his fatherly obligations makes him walk away, and assert his position as a “practical man” (52). Though Charles did not perform the violent action, it is arguably the agent’s irrational desires and intentions that depicts Charles’ mental instability. However, there is a sense of regret when Charles chooses to act rationally, because it makes him believe that he is selling his daughter to remain financial stable (49). Like Thanh, when Charles chooses to act submissive it is for the sake of survival.
To defend his manhood, Macbeth’s greed and desire to be king causes him to not carefully consider the outcomes of his actions. Furthermore, in Tellez’s short story, the Barber cautiously thinks about the outcomes of killing Captain Torres and what will become of his reputation. Questioning himself, he states “Murderer or hero?... You came to me for a shave… I don’t want blood on my hands.” (Tellez 2). Although the Barber knows it would be quite simple and effortless to kill the Captain, he lets his true morals become a deciding factor, ultimately deciding not to kill the captain.
Should he be morally sound and not kill the King or take the chance and do it. Macbeth is faced with three internal struggles, considering killing the King, weighing the advantages and disadvantages, and the aftermath of killing the King. The reader first sees Macbeth have an internal struggle when he’s thinking about murdering King Duncan. "If chance will have me king, why, chance may crown me, without my stir." (I, iii, 143-144) When he says this he’s showing guilt over the immorality of his intentions.
Polonius ' family members have close relationship with each other while Hamlet 's relationship with Gertrude and Claudius is a bit distant. - They are different in the way they make a decision. While Hamlet seems to be careful in making a decision, which is shown when he plans on feigning madness and playing The Murder of Gonzago to assure that what the ghost said is true and Claudius murdered his father, Polonius is impulsive as he says he is willing to die if Hamlet is not mad because of Ophelia without any realistic proof. - They are also different in the way they think. For example, Polonius tells Laertes to embrace his old friends but Hamlet does exact opposite to this.
In other words George never wanted Lennie to be treated poorly or be harmed, he wanted Lennie to be cared for, but since he killed Curley's wife they are no out looking for him. George can no longer protect Lennie, he rather end his life with happy feelings, than to suffer a terrible death. To conclude, killing is justifiable when it is a better of two outcomes. If dying is inevitable the less painful way is preferred. Even though, killing morality wrong, when asked, most people would want painless way out.
In addition to revealing Hamlet 's plot to catch his uncle for the murder of the king, Hamlet 's second soliloquy uncovers the true principle of Hamlet 's inner conflict. Hamlet is undeniably committed to avenging his fathers’ death, yet he cannot act on his ambition due to his distain for calculating revenge. Hamlet deems himself a coward because he has not taken any direct action against the new king. His self-condemnation takes several forms, including a series of self-demeaning insults based upon his self loathing which stems from him feeling he has done nothing to take revenge on Claudius. The plan to kill Claudius catches hamlet in the crossfire between using his animal instinct and avenging his fathers’ death, or obeying his common
Hamlet's overthinking and inaction led to several unnecessary murders. Hamlet knew that Claudius is guilty, yet he still wants to make sure, therefore Hamlet made a play that played out the exact way that Claudius had killed King Hamlet. Hamlet had done this in order to watch how Claudius reacts to make sure that Claudius is the one who murdered his father, “I’ll observe his looks, if he do blench, I know my course” (Ham.2.2.583-585) “Now might I do it pat, now’a is a-praying. And now I’ll do’t” ( Ham. 3.3.72-73), Hamlet says, as he is debating whether or not to kill the king as he prays and thinks to himself if he kills him now then the king will just go to heaven because he is praying.
As he is more of the thinking type, meaning he will rarely speak his thoughts aloud, he admits he’s weak. However, this is seen in contrast when Hamlet shows his split personality by killing Polonius, thinking it is Claudius instead of being the coward he usually is. He proves that he actually has some of his father’s heroic traits. “Now might I do..” “..now I’ll do 't” “...so am I revenged” his evident procrastination suggests the weakness of his character and that he cannot bring himself to serve justice for his father 's death. Hamlet’s desire to follow his father’s ghosts wish is strong, he thirsts for revenge yet he can’t figure out a way to kill Claudius as he cannot find the right time.
In Hamlet Act four, it clarifies how Hamlet is being demanded to kill Claudius, but he is afraid to. For what Hamlet did to kill Polonius was unnecessary, he did not know that it was Polonius, Hamlet thought it was Claudius, and instantly, he was genuinely in a bad spot for what he is going through. Hamlet may not plan to carry out his father’s revenge, therefore making his decision can fulfill his destiny. Hamlet is apprehensive about his crowd to believe he’s the bad guy of this. But apparently, he is innocent about why he killed Polonius.
