In the first act, Hamlet paints himself as someone with high morals who deplored those who fake emotions to sway the opinions of others and similar behavior during a conversation with Claudius. He notes that his outward appearance of grief doesn’t illuminate how sad he really is. With this, he also implies that in general, outward appearance is not indicative of who you are as a person. From this, I gather that he has honorable ideals but that changes very quickly. He was resentful of the circumstances of his father’s death but it isn’t until Act 1, Scene 5 that his anger causes him to abandon who he truly is.
Hamlet commits to the revenge seeking of murdering King Claudius when he writes “So, uncle, there you are. Now to my word… I have sworn’t” (I.v.117-119). After speaking with the ghost, Hamlet swears to go after Claudius. Hamlet is convinced by the ghost to kill King Claudius. If Hamlet wasn’t so upset or angry about his dad dying, he wouldn’t feel the need to end Claudius.
Hamlet’s mind was set on killing Claudius to get revenge on his father. While plotting to kill his uncle Hamlet, in a fit of rage, stabbed and killed Polonius while he was hiding behind a curtain. After Ophelia found out about her father 's death she became mad and decided that she could take her own life to fix all her pain. Shortly after Laertes discovered his sister killed herself, he wanted to fight and kill
The death Laertes’ father, Polonius, causes him to return home, demanding answers for the crime. Once he is aware that Hamlet has killed him, he wants Hamlet to pay for what he has done. Then, immediately after, Laertes’ sister Ophelia dies which convinces him it is due to Hamlet’s insults and actions. He quickly puts together a plan with Claudius to fight Hamlet as a way of revenge. Laertes seeking vengeance on Hamlet is what drives the plot to its final scene, where the rest of the characters are killed and the kingdom
Throughout the story he is constantly fighting the urge to get revenge on humanity, eventually he is corrupted. Victor breaks his promise to the creature of giving him a mate, this strikes the spiral of horrific events that follow. The first act of revenge the monster commits is killing Victor’s best friend Henry Clerval. In Victor perspective when he first discovers Henry has been killed, “when the mark of the fingers was mentioned I remembered the murder of my brother and felt myself extremely agitated”(Shelley 181). The creature aims to let Victor know he is serious about his threat to seek revenge on his wedding day by killing Henry.
Macbeth’s fate is not just determined by Malcolm reclaiming the throne, but revenge for murdering Macduff’s family. Macbeth’s fate is in the hands of Macduff either he will rise or fall. Macbeth suffers from the decisions that he makes. For example, when Malcolm and Macduff come back to battle him. Macduff says Despair thy charm, and let the angel whom thou still hast served Tell thee, Macduff was from his mother’s womb Untimely ripped.
In Hamlet, Prince Hamlet’s flaw is very evident when he states, “To take him in the purging of his soul/ When he is fit and seasoned for his passage?/ No./ Up, sword, and know thou a more horrid hent” (III. iii. 86-89). The whole entire play after Hamlet finds out that his Uncle Claudius murdered his father, he plots the execution of his selfish uncle. However, Prince Hamlet had the opportune time to avenge his father’s murderer but his recurring indecisiveness continues to get the best of him.
Hamlet's mischief appears in the script. This moment is important because, at this time, Hamlet realizes that he is now obliged to kill his uncle so that he can revenge his father's death. As we can see, after the play, Hamlet follows Claudius and decides to punish him in the more strict way instead of just kill
In effect, Laertes evokes the distinction between honor and nature and the former’s influence over his decision to choose revenge over clemency. After an injured Hamlet wounds Laertes with the poisoned foil, Laertes laments that he is “justly killed” by his own “treachery.” (5.2.337). In blaming himself for his downfall, Laertes declares the justice of his death. Laertes possesses only a simple understanding of the immorality of murder because his honor, anger, and a lack of concern for his own damnation drives him to ultimately carry out the act. After Hamlet kills Claudius, Laertes states the justice in the king’s death and says, “mine and my father 's death come not upon thee, / Nor thine on me!” (5.2.359-63).
Hamlet turns the tables on her, accusing her of a most grotesque lust and claiming that she has insulted her father and herself by stooping to marry Claudius. In the course of their interview, Polonius hides behind a tapestry; at one point, he thinks that Hamlet is going to attack Gertrude and cries for help. Hamlet stabs Polonius through the tapestry, thinking he has killed Claudius. When he finds that he has merely killed a "rash, intruding fool," Hamlet returns to the business of "speaking daggers" to his mother. Just as Gertrude appears convinced by Hamlet's excoriation, the ghost of Old Hamlet reappears and tells Hamlet not to behave so cruelly to his mother, and to remember to carry out revenge on Claudius.
Frantic, he orders a group of murderers to kill Macduff’s family. Consequently, when the time comes for Macbeth to encounter Macduff on the battlefield, he exhibits a moment of hesitation before proceeding to the duel. Feeling remorse for having Macduff’s entire family violently killed, Macbeth admits that he has a guilty conscience that he does not want to kill Macduff as well. “Of all men else I have avoided thee: / But get thee back; my soul is too much charged / With blood of thine already,” (Shakespeare 5. VIII.
Villa had numerous opportunities to slaughter his uncle, however his fury exceeded his better judgment; and he held up until the ruler could see no great in Claudius, and afterward strike him down into a universe of unceasing punishment. "Presently may I do it pat, now he is praying...A miscreant murders my dad; and for that, I, his sole child, do this same lowlife send to heaven. "[Act 3, Scene 3, lines 74-98]. Village holds up until he can execute his uncle while he is performing a wrongdoing yet sadly for Hamlet, his next opportunity to correct vengeance on Claudius is his own demise. Retribution, being the main thrust in the play Hamlet, is likewise one motivation behind why it is a catastrophe.
