So furious that he plans to track Lennie, a new employee with an intellectual disability, down and murder him to get revenge for his mistake.

At the beginning of the play, Claudius takes on the role of a kind, just king; he seems to genuinely care for Hamlet.

At the end of the feast which was set up for assassinating Banquo and his son, Macbeth is again terrified by the news that Fleance has fled and Banquo’s ghost will dried blood over his body.

Her siblings were William Austin Dickinson and Lavinia Norcross Dickinson. Dickinson’s father was harsh, “‘thin dry[,] and speechless[,]’” but Dickinson was depressed when her father died in June 1874 (Donoghue). Although Dickinson’s father was harsh, he was a highly valued man in society because he was the “treasurer of Amherst College, a member of the state legislative, and a member of congress.” Dickinson’s father also presented himself as a “model citizen and prided himself on his civic work” (Donoghue). However, others viewed Dickinson’s mother as a “passive wife of a domineering husband” (Wider). Because her mother was “passive,” Dickinson never knew a mother’s love until her mother suffered from paralysis, and Dickinson learned to love her” (Donoghue).

This is what makes it so easy for her to bribe him into killing Duncan, which eventually leads to him killing many more people.

Because of one bribe, Macbeth went on to become a serial killer and their relationship would turn to mush.

Hamlet has come to see his mother, Queen Gertrude, and ends up stabbing Lord Polonius, which ultimately leads to his death. Lord Polonius’ final words include “O, I am slain!” Even though this provides a slight amount of comic relief to the reader, it has a reverse effect on Ophelia’s mental state. Her father’s death seems to be the potent punch in this fight because she officially goes mad after this final event. This is apparent in Scene IV Act I, when Laertes has come back to visit his sister and check on her well being. He is disappointed to see that Ophelia is displaying irrational behavior when she begins to sing “They bore him barefac’d on the bier; Hey non nonny, nonny, hey nonny; And on his grave rains many a tear.” She is so mentally ill that she must be locked in a padded room during the day.
This shows even though the king is dead or someone is dead they will still try and get revenge because they are greedy and don't want to give up their belongings or title.

After he poisoned the tip of his sword everything went downhill.

At the beginning of the story, the audience reads that Mrs. Mallards husband has passed away. She is told by her sister that her husband has passed, but unlike most people, Mrs. Mallard does not “accept its significance” due to a “paralyzed inability.” Because of the inability, she is filled with misery and “physical exhaustion”, but not for long. She murmurs, free, free, free” as she realizes that due to the passing of her husband, she is now unrestricted to his will.
