At the beginning of the play, Hamlet’s depression is because of the loss of his father and Gertrude’s marriage. 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.

Emily Dickinson became very well known for her fascination with death. Many of her poems focus on loss or loneliness, but the most compelling ones talk particularly about dying, specifically her own death and her own afterlife. Her captivation with suffering gives her poems a rare aspect, giving insight into a mind and a topic we know very little about. “Because I could not stop for Death” closely demonstrates Emily’s fascination with her religious doubts and life continuing after death. In this poem, the speaker is looking back on the moment of death, whereas in “I heard a fly buzz when I died,” the speaker is looking at the moments leading up to death, and in “I felt a funeral in my brain,” the speaker is describing death itself.
INTRODUCTION First, let us ask - what is death? Death is an abstract idea.

Within the text, the Narrator was thinking, “I’m imagining now—her last thought maybe this: that he never even knew
In the novella The Death of Ivan Ilyich, Leo Tolstoy displays the introspection on the metaphysical meaning of life as the protagonist Ivan Ilyich becomes mentally preoccupied with his impending death. By reversing the chronology of death and encapsulating moral messages centering around the protagonist’s dying experience, Tolstoy emphasizes the importance of confronting death to achieve a meaningful life free of societal ideals. Despite criticizing a society permeated with self-deception and hypocrisies, the writer portrays possibilities of redeeming oneself to live a meaningful life nonetheless. Thus, Tolstoy advocates for authentic human relationships through the juxtaposition of Gerasim’s truthfulness with proprieties followed by others.
