In Macbeth, Shakespeare uses his expertise in imagery to show the characters going through the stages of madness and guilt.

When Esther told the king that someone was putting her life in danger and that “the adversary and enemy [was the] wicked Haman,” Ahasuerus became enraged and ordered for Haman to be put to death on the same gallows he built for Mordecai (Esther 7:6). At this moment, Esther may have been overwhelmed with relief and even a sense freedom. Haman had tormented her cousin for a long time, so it must have been comforting to know that he was going to get punished for his wrongdoings and exit their lives for good.
