His madness effect on his judgment and makes him to become obsessed with the death; even he sees death as the only way to take revenge. We can see that Hamlet explores death in every facet of the play from many different angles and how he develops his definition of death from the materially to morality perspective. At the end of the play, Hamlet reaches his goal– avenges his father’s murder– and kills the king, but it costs his own life and life of many others. The last word of dying Hamlet to Horatio is “the rest is silence” (5.2.356) and by this, he may mean that he eventually found peace in death and became free of his

Death is a part of life that everyone experiences in some way, whether it be their own or even being affected by the death of another. Many people dwell on the thought of their own death, wondering how or when it will occur. Then, it is even a massive question in society; what will happen to us when we die? In the play “Everyman,” with the main topic being death, it is only fitting that the main character was told that he is going to die. For some people, it may be difficult to speak about death, scary even.
He retired in 62AD, where he withdrew from public life and wrote some of his best works. However in 65AD, Seneca was implicated in a conspiracy where he was sentenced to suicide by Nero. 1 Seneca’s school of thought is classified as Roman Stoic; in fact, he is a major figure in that brand of philosophy. Roman Stoics according to the Scholar Gretchen Reydam-Schils, “adapted Greek doctrine to create a model of the self that served to connect philosophical ideals with traditional societal values.” That is, the Romans tried to blend philosophical ideals with traditional societal values while trying to implement them in everyday life. In essence, the stoics were interested in the teaching of self-control in order to overcome what they call “destructive emotions” such as anger, envy, jealousy and others.

Death does not control men, but rather inhabits them as a balancing component of a collage of forces. Finally, the poet sentences Death to an end: “Death, thou shalt die” (lin. 14), because elimination of Death will enable Life’s existence.
Seen in the case of Prince Prospero, even the most valiant of Poe’s characters could not escape the fate of death, emphasizing the inescapability of death. In an essay titled “Edgar Allan Poe: Friend of Fear and Master of Madness,” one author wrote about how Poe’s admiration “of nineteenth-century scientific concepts and psychological theories concerning the emotion of fear and the state of madness” (Virginia Lucas Poetry Scrapbook) laid a pathway to much of his work, in which he dealt with death incited by endless modes CONSISTENTLY ADDRESSES DEATH, BY MANY CAUSES. In “The Masque of the Red Death,” Poe singles out Prince Prospero in his attempt
When Sage asks why he is so desperate to die, he replies, “Because I should be dead, Sage. It’s what I deserve” (47). Many attempts were made before asking Sage for help.

Death, the observer has seen the start and will see humanity's end. Yet doesn't understand how something can be beautiful and ugly and the same time. Through observing Death has seen humanity’s worst and best. That is why Death is always over and underestimating the human race. Death wonders how words hold such power, being brilliant and damming.
Poe's Concept of Death is as a strong power that is not tangible that ends with people’s lives, no matter what. With the allegory he states that how strong is death's inevitability. He shows us that death is part of our unavoidable fate. Everyone will meet death sometime, no matter who we are or how much we try to avoid it, it will finish with us.
