As soon as Doodle is born the narrator shows a sense of disappointment and hatred towards his brother. One of the first signs of the narrator's feelings is in the third paragraph when he says “It was bad enough having an invalid brother, but having one who possibly was not all there was unbearable, so I began to make plans to kill him by smothering him with a pillow.” This shows that the narrator was disappointed and horrified of having a brother who would not be all there. It also shows that he was so embarrassed by his brother that he would even kill his brother so he wouldn't be embarrassed.
Furthermore, Hamlet kills Polonius out of anger when he believes him to be King Claudius. Overall, Laertes is exceptionally comparable to Hamlet. Laertes’ father was killed by Hamlet; but the two act in completely different ways when they realize their fathers were murdered. While Hamlet is full of self-doubt and conflicting emotions, Laertes is quick to attempt to avenge his father. Laertes immediately jumps to the conclusion that King Claudius is the murderer of his father and he seeks vengeance.
But we can see after he finds out about the truth, he is forced to act because of his morality beliefs. The battle in Hamlet’s tragedy occurs in a dynamic society that is created by opposing forces that contradict with each other and Hamlet is a philosophical prince who blames the court for impunity, injustice, and murder; and all of these problems prevents him from being a part of court’s social life and he becomes depressed. Hamlet’s deep depression effects on his behaviors until he even doesn’t act like prince and becomes mad. 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.
In “The Scarlet Ibis”, Hurst uses the theme of peer pressure to argue that the normative conformity with one’s reputation leads to death. In providing rationale for his brother, Doodle, the narrator exclaims “It was bad enough having an invalid brother, but having one who possibly was not all there was unbearable, so I began to make plans to kill him… (Hurst 176). The narrator statement explains his embarrassment of having a handicapped brother. The narrator didn’t get the normal brother with whom he could share his love of the outdoors. When he finds out he has an “invalid brother” he feels it's “unbearable”.
As many researchers know there is much evidence for both his sanity, and his madness. But which is true? In the play, Hamlet is constantly talking to himself, which is already one sign of madness, but the things that he says to himself are murderous and even suicidal quotes. One of the quotes in the play being, “HAMLET: O, that this too too sullied flesh would melt, Thaw and resolve itself into a dew, Or that the Everlasting had not fixed
Specifically, his uncertainty is shown when he is given the opportunity to kill his uncle, but he ends up postponing his revenge because he believes that Claudius is praying. Although one might argue that a character’s obsession may lead to happiness, an analysis of Prince Hamlet in William Shakespeare’s Hamlet, and Guy Montag in Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, depicts the theme of uncertainty when a character leads to downfall due to their
This claim proves to be evident because throughout the play, Hamlet tries to avenge his father’s death and goes insane doing so. This is apparent in Act III of the play when Gertrude and Hamlet are in a room of the castle and Hamlet sees the ghost of his father again. Gertrude, however, does not see the ghost because it is simply a figment of Hamlet’s imagination. (Shakespeare III.IV.131-135). Hamlet’s madness is a product of the death of his father, which supplements the claim that fathers can impact their sons in a destructive manner.
He depicts his “solid flesh”, urging it to melt and “resolve itself into a dew (129-130). Shakespeare emphasizes his grief - he truly is upset. Hamlet even calls to “the Everlasting”, wishing he had not deemed “self-slaughter” to be a sin (131-132). His cries “O, God! God!”
He expresses repeated outbursts of empty allegations and scrutiny, “are you honest? Are you fair?” ( Act 3 scene one.)The impression being given is that Hamlet's views of women have been lowered as a result of his commitment to revenge. His obsession with getting revenge on Claudius and honoring his word to his father are directly linked to his despise towards his mother's betrayal as well as his distrust and acrimony with Ophelia.
For Hamlet, however, the problem of seeing a genuine difference between his original father and the man Gertrude has called his father assumes enormous significance at precisely this
Although Hamlet wants to avenge his father’s death, he admits that he is dishonest and weak. “Tears in his eyes, distraction in his aspect, A broken voice, and his whole function suiting. With forms to his conceit? And all for nothing!”(2.2.565-567). Hamlet is starting to break
Romeo and Juliet is filled with literary devices that affect the outcome of the play and the audience’s understanding of the events. The prologue and the first scene of the tragedy serve as an example of this. Foreshadowing is the hinting of events to come at a later part of a play. Lines 1-14 of the prologue foreshadow the suicides of the two lovers, Romeo and Juliet and how their suicides ultimately end the feud between their enemy families.
