For him to die and be forgotten by Uruk, is the biggest fear he has underlying his fear of death. Gilgamesh is slowly overcoming his fear of death. Through Enkidu’s death, he is slowly surpassing his fear and overlooking it. He realizes that death is inevitable and cannot be avoided. Gilgamesh is still selfish, only thinking of himself.
His madness is shown through his strong love for Ophelia and the depths he is willing to take to show how much he loves her. Hamlet also displays his deranged mind by not giving the whereabouts to Polonius’ body and discussing the fate of the kings prior to it actually happening. One way Hamlet’s unhinged mind is shown throughout the play is by his deep love and peculiar words to Ophelia. When Hamlet had discovered that Ophelia was dead, he lost his mind and his strength. At Ophelia’s funeral he couldn’t bear to see her laying in that grave and says, “ Dost thou come here to whine, To outface me with leaping in her grave, Be buried quick with her?/ and so will I”(v.i.263-265).
The imagery displayed is overwhelming and a major moment of catharsis. Haemon’s love for Antigone goes beyond his family, and once seeing her dead, he kills himself and clings on to her, demonstrating his adoration for her. The audience also feels pity for he was not able to marry due to his father’s willful actions. In Haemon’s last moments, the only thing he wanted was to lie dead “with his arm round the dead” because he wanted his last moments to be with Antigone. This scene is essential for Sophocles to cause a significant moment of catharsis.
Words define themselves in relation to each other, as people do. As I Lay Dying is about the difference between words and deeds, and definitely there is much in the book that proves that the latter is valorised. Addie unambiguously renounces words when she comprehends their tendency to dislodge and replace reality: “When he [her first-born son Cash] was born I knew that motherhood was invented by someone who had to have a word for it because the ones that had the children didn’t care whether there was a word for it or not. I knew that fear was invented by someone that had never had the fear; pride, who never had the pride” (ALD 115). Words are not only redundant but also secondary to reality; meanings are superimposed on signs beyond the latter’s capacity of signification.
. . ‘Macbeth shall sleep no more’” (2.2.33-41). The motif of guilt is present because Macbeth is haunted by his murdering Duncan. He feels remorseful for committing such a crime and he tells himself that he will not be able to sleep anymore because of his guilt.
She decided that to deal with this loss she would marry Torm. Later on, after being married to Torm for quite some time Torm dies. “Torm took ill. He went from a cough to a high fever to quietness. and died while Gwilan sat beside him.” (Guin) Through these examples readers can see the consistent theme of loss and the ways Gwilan deals with the loss of her harp and husband.
Hamlet then goes on to say, “who would fardels bear,To grunt and sweat under a weary life” (3;18;84-85) and is asking the question of how anyone would want to continue their life in his situation. Due to the Ghost coming back and telling Hamlet that the death of his father was not an accident, Hamlet is now responsible for killing King Claudius. Killing a King is not easy and the longer Hamlet takes to actually complete the task, the more Hamlet is driving himself into actual madness. That madness only being created from the extraordinary amount of stress that Hamlet is under. The madness, the stress,
"Together with all forms, moods, shows of grief, That can denote me truly. These indeed seem, For they are actions that a man might play. But I have that within which passes show. These but the trappings and the suits of woe" (I.ii.82-86) this quote shows the depression that Hamlet was engulfed by, making the sorrow that he felt over his father's death, obvious to the readers. In act 1 scene 5, Hamlet was told by his father's ghost that his death was not a random but a murder committed by Hamlet's uncle; this information only added to Hamlet's depression and gave him an immense desire to get revenge.
Macbeth also shows that he is filled with guilt and is suicidal when he says, “I have almost forgot the taste of fears…I have supped full with horrors. Direness, familiar to my slaughterous thoughts, cannot once start me” (5.5.11,15-17). This shows that Macbeth is familiar with his horrible thoughts and that they can’t startle him anymore. He has lost touch with reality and has become numb to his violent thoughts. Another time Macbeth feels guilty is right after murdering Duncan and forgetting to leave the daggers with the servants.
Notwithstanding, this opinion seems obvious, but under further examination proves quite complex. At the end of the book Ethan decides he would rather die with Mattie than live without her, leading him to go down the hill on the sled. This is interesting for it almost appears that he forgets about Zen who he once was madly in love with. This adds his ignominious outlook on happiness with his irrational thoughts about Mattie is his forever and ultimately causes him to put a “death” to his relationship with Zen. These opinions link together and ultimately lead to Ethan attempting suicide with Mattie, failing, and having to live with the two women who he saw as dead due to the fact that he could not have them in exactly the way he wanted them.

As a result of her crying, Paul questions, "Why doesn 't she stop worrying? Kemmerich will stay dead whether she knows about it or not. When a man has seen so many dead he cannot understand any longer why there should be so much anguish over a single individual" (181). Knowing the unlikely chance of staying alive in war, Paul, unlike Kemmerich 's mom, knows how easy being killed is. Although her reaction appears over-the-top, she probably believes that she is acting
Naomi uses the word “dead” directly to describe the tree, which is the symbol of her mother. When the tree is dead, the branch must be dead too, and this suggests that along with Naomi’s mother’s death, Naomi also becomes dead, not literally, or physically, but in a way that because of the absence of the ultimate foundation in her life, she becomes emotionally, and spiritually dead. The death of Naomi’s mother, who has a significant impart on Naomi’s life makes Naomi suffer greatly, and her absence influences Naomi to become confused, and feel
