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. Because of his vulnerability, Hamlet was liable to do almost anything to avenge his father’s death. However, his father did not show that same loyalty. In fact, “There is no ‘I love you’ on the lips of old King Hamlet. There is no fatherly concern for his son’s life” (Word Press par.

Just...let me explain.”(86) There was a policeman at the door [I told the police] father killed Wellington, who is a dog.”(134) This explains that when Christopher 's father was full of sadness he randomly told Christopher that he killed the dog, but Christopher told the police and did not keep the secret.

If Modern psychologists were involved in this, they would definitely see that there is a unstable mentality to Hamlet.

These kind of situations particularly occurs when it comes to recognizing one’s identity. Sophocles ' Oedipus is about a man who is not conscious about his true identity: initially, he firmly believes that the parents he resides with are his original birth parents because they brought him up, but in reality they were his adoptive parents, he was abandoned by his actual parents because an oracle mentioned that he would kill his father and marry his own mother, Oedipus indeed married his own mother without any acknowledge .

The entire play is based on Hamlet seeking revenge for the murder of his father, who he had a close relationship with and admired dearly.

When Zachry’s father and brother were attacked by the Kona, Zachry lied to his fellow Valleymen and said that the Kona had attacked them when he wasn’t there so that he would not look like a coward for not intervening and saving his family. This lie led Zachry to believed that his soul was “half-stoned”, meaning that his chances of being reincarnated as a Valleyman were reduced because he acted like a savage, against Sonmi’s wishes. Zachry did not kill Meronym when Old Georgie tempted him because if he committed murder, he would be going against Sonmi and would be reincarnated as a savage Kona, the worst reincarnation for a Valleyman. The remainder of Zachry’s decisions after lying about the Kona attack were based around proving to Sonmi that he was worthy of being reincarnated as a Valleyman. Sonmi influenced Zachry to do good in life out of his fear of his soul being stoned and him ending up as a Kona in his next life.
