From violent duals to envious revenge Othello’s death embodies the many consequences of previous events in the play. At the beginning of the play, Othello becomes general and appoints Cassio as second in command, but Othello does not even mention Iago.

Hamlet Hamlet is a tragedy play written by William Shakespeare. It is a play that involves numerous deaths. Hamlet is the main character in the play and he is depicted as an insane person. Hamlet faked his madness so as to confuse Claudius and his assistants in order to find the truth about the death of his father. He acted strange when he was around the king and his attendants and this is evident when he tells his friend Guildenstem that "his uncle-father and aunt-mother are deceived" (Shakespeare).
In the play, The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, it is full of revenge. Many things happen through this play but there’s one person or thing that makes the bad things happen. King Hamlet died and his brother took over and even married his wife, Gertrude. The Prince Hamlet does not approve of this relationship because it happened so quick. Hamlet grieves through this whole play because of the death of his father and starts to go crazy.
In this story there is an event that is commonly called a “play inside of a play”, and by using this in the story it reveals the effectiveness of using deceit to pull the truth out of people, to see their true nature and what they’re capable of. Although everyone is using trickery, Hamlet’s deception is quite possibly the cruelest out of everyone because it causes the most deaths. In this story, Hamlet deceives basically everyone in the play even himself. He deceives himself into thinking what he is doing is warranted and that his uncle must burn in hell for what he has done and this is why he hides behind his fake insanity. The major question that is still argued about to this day, regarding Hamlet, is “is hamlet insane?”.
If Modern psychologists were involved in this, they would definitely see that there is a unstable mentality to Hamlet. With hamlet 's behavior and outburst for his age, you can see that inconsistent actions and speech are signs of emotional and mental distress, but it isn’t clear whether the inconsistency comes from going crazy or from the overwhelming stresses of his circumstances with the death of his father or the fact that he is living with a killer. Towards the last ask in the play when King Claudius is trying to get rid of hamlet he brings laertes back from school and the two of them plot to kill hamlet during a fencing match, Hamlet not knowing the two of them put poison on the fencing stick so when Hamlet was caught with it he would be poisoned and die , but before that the king had the idea while they were fencing to try and make hamlet drink the poison because he was Thursday but queen Gertrude ended up drinking the drink that was for Hamlet but because it was the poison she ended up dying first, after all was said and done at the conclusion of the play Hamlet tells laretes that he is the victim of his own madness, . I’m thinking that after pretending to be crazy he ended up losing his mind him being crazy, right before he died he realize that all of this happen because it was his fault but at the end of the day there was nothing you could do
Shakespeare 's Hamlet presents readers with several scenes of violence, such as the deaths of Polonius, Ophelia, King Hamlet, and the fist fights between Prince Hamlet and Laertes. In Hamlet , the protagonist, Prince Hamlet, is portrayed as a very indecisive character. The reader is left to infer if Hamlet is senile, or if it’s just all an act in response of the world around him. Violence is littered all around the world of Hamlet. Because of this, the narrative of Hamlet is always more than it seems.
Hamlet, mistaking Polonius for Claudius, deftly removes his blade from his holster and stabs through the curtain,surprising both Polonius and himself, as he had believed that the man he was about to kill was Claudius. As Hamlet sees life through the eyes of a killer, he contemplates how it must feel to be killed and to enter the afterlife. His pondering of the afterlife is embodied by both the skull of Yorick, a court jester with whom Hamlet had a personal relationship with, and the ghost of his father, King Hamlet. Since death is both the consequence and cause of of revenge, it is tied closely with the themes of the Complexity of taking action, and justice. As blood is the only prize that may quell the thirst of one who seeks revenge, Hamlet takes Yorick 's skull as a
Before he dies, Laertes says, “…The foul practice / Hath turned itself on me. Lo, here I lie, / Never to rise again” (Shakespeare 5.2 327-329). He proves Confucius’s proverb true, “Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves.” Laertes attempts to avenge his father’s and sister’s deaths, and he partially succeeds; but not without losing his own life in the process. This is another consequence of seeking vengeance: it ruins you as well. The characters in Hamlet learn how revenge is capable of torturing, ensnaring, and ruining those who choose to partake of
