Brutus’ emotional wound ultimately deals with his internal conflict of the decision to kill Caesar in order to better Rome. In addition, he deals with such difficulty over the decision because his reason to kill Caesar does not come out of hatred or jealousy, but due to his fear of life under Caesar’s rule. In Act I, scene ii, lines 39-40, Brutus says, “Merely upon myself. Vexéd I am / Of late passions of some difference” (Shakespeare 848). This quote, from Brutus, means that his own thoughts and conflicts overwhelm him.

All of these characters seek revenge for the death of their fathers by taking the matter into their own hands: Fortinbras seeks war against Denmark (former King Hamlet killed Fortinbras’ father), while Laertes returns from Paris to Eslionor to fight for his dead father 's honor. However, the way these two characters carry themselves is much different than the way Hamlet does. He, himself speaks of Laertes and Fortinbras as people who are basic contrasts to him. The reader understands this in Act IV, Scene iv where Hamlet describes Fortinbras and his valiant character and promises to become somewhat more like him. Hamlet says, "Witness this army of such mass and charge/ Led by a delicate and tender prince,/ Whose spirit with divine ambition puff 'd/ Makes mouths at
Macbeth was contemplating the consequences of murdering Duncan and foresees his future of being overthrown by righteousness. He is worried that “This even-handed justice/ Commends th’ ingredience if our poisoned chalice/ To our own lips.” (1.7.10-12). Macbeth, at this point, have not been obsessed with lust for power. He raised self-awareness that the violence he used to wrongly proclaim himself king will be used to take vengeance against him. Such violence made him a “tyrant” and eventually killed by Macduff in anger of Macbeth’s crimes.
Hamlet is essentially a story based on revenge. The play opens with the outside guards seeing the phantom of the recently deceased King Hamlet. When his son is summoned to him, he tasks him to get revenge for his death. Young Hamlet then spends the following days planning every move of his revenge until he accidentally kills the father of Laertes in an act of misguided rage.

Through Brutus 's piece, he uses ethos appeals to build his argument as to why he did the heinous act of helping murder caesar. Two examples of how brutus used ethos appeals can be seen when caesar explains why he made the choice he did. “Not that I loved caesar less, but that I loved rome more.” (shakespeare,3,1) Another example of how brutus tried to use ethos to persuade the people of rome can be seen in stanza four. “Who is here so vile that
He sent a lot of soldiers to fight for the land that didn’t even worth it. Thousands of people are sending to death for no reason. Also, Hamlet killed Polonius with direct action. “Nah, I know not, is it the King?” (Shakespeare 81) This conveys that Hamlet’s original target is the King, but since he is not thinking through; he accidentally
Morality plays a large role in defining identity. Shakespeare uses Macbeth to question the impact of morality in shaping Macbeth’s identity. Shakespeare accomplishes this through defining Macbeth’s original character, expressing how Macbeth’s changes morally, and examining the effects of this moral change on Macbeth’s identity. Initially, Shakespeare accomplishes this through establishing an original state of morality for Macbeth. Subsequently, Shakespeare highlights the decay of Macbeth’s morality as the story progresses.
