He cared greatly about his family and wife even though Elizabeth was often distant towards him. In the end of the play, Proctor chooses to die rather than sign his confession, ratting out his friends and ruining his good name in the town. He did this to protect the reputation of his children so they won’t have to grow up with a lying father. Lying went against Protctors’ views and that ideal is prevalent throughout the entire play. It is revealed that as soon as he had an affair with Abigail, he confessed to Elizabeth the next day because of the guilt he was carrying around.
The play of Hamlet by William Shakespeare is full of many acts of betrayal. One such of these acts is when Hamlet goes against the wishes of his father’s ghost and debates on whether or not he should kill Claudius. Not only this but he also is extremely cruel to his mother and hurts her feelings which were also against the wishes of the ghost. He wanted Hamlet to avenge his death without hurting others along the way and almost everything Hamlet did in the play went against that. Hamlet’s first act of betrayal against the ghost of his father is one that stretches throughout the entire book.
She is one that tends to disobey society, she dresses pearl up on a scarlet dress with gold designs to show that she is also the scarlet letter. B. Arthur Dimmesdale is very ashamed of his sin that he committed but he does not want the people to know that he committed adultery but then on the other hand he is very jealous of Hester that she doesn’t have to bear the guilt and that everyone knows of his sin.

He decided what he felt was right and refused to stray from it. His decision, along with those of others who did the same, eventually brought the chaos and hysteria to an end. John Proctor held firmly to what he believed was right, even in the face of great pressure. The pressure of the Salem witch trials elicited various responses from three of the characters in The Crucible; Parris fell victim to fear, Hale took on an entirely different worldview, and Proctor established himself as one who would stand for the truth. The ways these men reacted show us that pressure does not affect everyone in the same way.
This quote shows that Hamlet was jealous of the things that Claudius has done because it the things that he wanted to do. Hamlet is in his mother’s bedroom telling her not to be with Claudius. Hamlet is jealous if the affection his mother gives that Claudius and not him. Even thought the Oedipus Complex plays a major role in Hamlets actions its not the only reason for Hamlets actions. The character foils within the play also have a lot to do with Hamlets actions.
Satan is not evil but man is evil. Satan gives for free, help for free and loves for free. Being a devil worshiper helps you to get thing that you desire.

This creates a bit of confusion, because it is unclear whether Hamlet is cautious or merely indecisive. Laertes is clearly confident in himself, and benefits from the constant encouragement from Claudius. It is said that “Laertes’ character becomes …. more evil as the play progresses” (McGee 156),because he consistently takes action.

Macbeth was a very selfish man, who only thought about himself. He was very interested when the witches told thiem about how they predict he will be king.

Without realizing it, he finds out Claudius has gotten up and walked out. Comes to find out he was very angry with Hamlet for making that play and hurting his mother. Hamlet begins to be very heartbreaking towards Ophelia because he starts acting as if he doesn’t really care about her and starts joking with her Lach 4 in a mean way. He starts telling you that her beauty has nothing He also starts questioning whether life is better or if death would be easier. The ghost telling Hamlet about his father being murdered changes the way he thinks about his own life.
