For the death of Banquo, it can be argued that the murders of Banquo leads to the results that Macbeth shall sleep no more. For example, when Lady Macbeth says to her husband, "You lack the season of all natures, sleep" (3.4.140).

Additionally, in scene two act III the scene that may have any effect on the direction of the play is the introduction of the Ghost appearing to Hamlet and telling him that Claudius his uncle and brother to his father killed the king father to Hamlet and asks him to revenge his death. This makes Hamlet to distrust almost everybody around him except Horatio his close friend. From the scene, Rosencrantz asks “Good my lord, what is your cause of distemper? you 338 do, surely, bar the door upon your own liberty, if you deny your griefs to your friend.”.

His ghostly father, his traitorous mother and uncle, his best friend, and his lover (who also represents her father and brother). At this note, it is easy to state that Hamlet’s demise was simultaneous to the characters he represents. After the death of Hamlet’s father, readers soon come to see that Hamlet’s father is poisoned, which in turn leads to the both literal and figurative poisoning of Hamlet and all other characters that Hamlet represents. This image of poison shows that the kingdom has been corrupted and poisoned, not just Hamlet’s father. William Shakespeare uses the recurring image of poison throughout Hamlet to symbolize the corruption of Hamlet, Claudius, Gertrude, Ophelia and her family, Horatio, and the kingdom of Elsinore, both mentally and physically.

In Act III, Scene I of the play, Ophelia says to Hamlet “My lord, I have remembrances of yours, That I have longed long
Suradji shows symptoms of schizophrenia. Schizophrenia is a disorder that can cause people to hear or see things that are out of the normal.

Hamlet was plotting his uncle’s murder, something the majority of people would view as completely insane, but it is how he plotted this murder that makes it clear that he is not mad.
Take this quote by Kathleen Wilson and Marie Lazzari in; “A father tries to regain custody of his daughter after the death of his wife, financial disaster in the stock market crash of 1929, and his own battle with alcoholism” (Wilson and Lazzari 8). A lot of people who bid their thoughts on this say that even though Charlie Whales, the father of Honoria, wife of Helen, says he changed and resolved his addiction to not drinking anymore, some still get a feeling of disagreement.
