He is much less emotional than Hamlet and Laertes, as he is logical in his action. Both Hamlet and Fortinbras plan to avenge their father’s death from the start of the story ( Lynch 2). They both feel cheated of the crown after their father’s unrightful passing and that their uncles stripped them of their title. Hamlet is a soldier with no real power and seems to be okay with it; he doesn 't want to fight. Yet, Fortinbras is a soldier that takes it into his own hand to have power and loves to fight.

Because he will never get that, he chooses to run

Who, in comparison with his brother, has a whole different look then his brother, the story had said, “Donald was bony, grave, and obsessed with the fate of the soul”(364). Saying this, it completely adds to the fact that people couldn’t believe that these two men are brothers. As well as these two brothers looking different from one another the story also emphasizes that unlike his brother Pete, who was married and had kids, Donald is , “the younger brother, was still single”(364). This probably shows why Donald was such a carefree person because he doesn’t have any responsibilities to deal with as an adult, while his brother had many responsibilities to look over throughout his life. In addition, “He lived alone, painted houses when he found the work, and got deeper in debt to Pete when he didn’t” (364).
Despite the language being the same as the original text, the audience does not gain any sense of suicidal tendencies or nihilism from Hamlet. Instead, the scene reads as Hamlet merely being annoyed and disappointed with the situation at hand. Hamlet’s sanity does not weaken even upon seeing his father’s ghost.

He does not shed a tear or become hysterical over what he has heard, proving once again his sanity remains intact.

From the point of view of Harold Bloom, it can be mentioned that Richard II is not a character of a real tragic hero because of its having lack of the qualities of a tragic hero. In the same way he is an incomplete politician also.
Alai also demonstrates, through his refusal, that he doesn’t possess the same compliance with inflicting pain on others despite being Bernard’s best friend. This exhibits the grandness of their humanity for they both sacrifice their own selves to prevent the boy they just met from getting hurt. “ He hadn’t meant to kill the Giant. This was supposed to be a game. Not a choice between his own grisly death and an even worse murder.
Choices can be bad, to worse. It is never as black and white as it may seem when it comes to choices, and for that, one cannot wish anything sour to those who chose a path that felt best in a situation. John died a hero for trying to save those falsely accused, and trying to prove that the girls were lying, though that has never been proven and is merely a theory. With that, John also died a selfish man for leaving behind his wife and children for nothing but a name.
