Several months later he celebrates by holding a masquerade ball and in preparation for it he decorated the castle.

Old King Hamlet's ghost describes his death in Act I, Scene 5 of Hamlet by relating what really happened to him. King Hamlet’s ghost tells Hamlet that he died by his brother’s hand, which is treachery at its finest. He deprived the King of his life, his queen, his crown, his kingdom, and his chance to repent of his sins and turn to a more righteous way of life before he died a physical death. King Hamlet’s ghost says that he died with his sins still a part of him and unforgiven, with “No reckoning made….” This haunts him greatly and Claudius’ murderous actions are responsible for this, as he cut the King’s life short when he still had missions to accomplish and things to resolve in his life.

An overwhelming amount of evidence shows that Hamlet faked his insanity to confuse the king and his accomplices. Often revered for their emotional complexities, William Shakespeare’s tragic characters display various signs of mental illness. Sylvia Morris notes “Hamlet contains Shakespeare’s most fully-developed study of mental illness, and has always intrigued commentators on the play.” (“Shakespeare’s Minds Diseased: Mental Illness and its Treatment”). When looking at the play, one can infer that Shakespeare makes the relationship between sanity and insanity undistinguishable from one another.

Friar comes up with a plan for Juliet to take a potion to make herself seem dead for two and forty hours, when Juliet awakes Romeo would be there to take her to Mantua.

As part of Friar Lawrence’s plan, he sent Friar John to tell Romeo about the plan, but word got to Romeo about Juliet’s death before Friar John could tell Romeo about the plan. As it is made obvious, everyone thinks that Juliet is actually dead except for Friar Lawrence, Friar John, and Juliet.
Edgar Allan Poe’s short story, The Cask of Amontillado, details a carefully plotted murder as revenge for an unspecified insult. The murderer, Montresor, carefully lures a wine connoisseur into his family’s catacomb and walls him within a crevice where he claims to have stored an expensive wine. The plot for this scheme appears to be overly meticulous and complicated, especially as one intended to kill for vengeance. In the introductory paragraph, Montresor explains the basis for his specific method: “[A wrong is] unredressed when the avenger fails to make himself felt as such to him who has done the wrong.” It is ambiguous what insult or injury generated Montresor’s desire to kill, but it is apparent that each detail in his plan is intended
Death has been an important theme since the beginning of the play. It is first mentioned with the murder of the late king. It is mentioned again in act 5.

Shelley foreshadows that the creature is in a need for a female companion that would give him the love he needs. Finally, when Victor refuses to create a female companion for the creature, the creature says,” I shall be with you on your wedding night” (123). This quote foreshadows that the creature will take revenge on Frankenstein by taking away his lover’s life and making him suffer the same pain he suffered. Foreshadowing makes the story more interesting by allowing the reader to guess the events that may
Throughout American literature and cinema history, the premature burial of someone has been displayed. In the American gothic short story, “The Fall of the House of Usher,” by Edgar Allan Poe, this is portrayed as well. Roderick Usher buries his twin sister, Madeline Usher, alive because he believes that she has died. In Poe’s, “The Fall of the House of Usher,” it showcases Poe’s troubled past with the death of loved ones due to disease. Thus, it contributes to the theme one can never trust anyone, even one’s own family.
