Hamlet becomes upset and goes mad when he sees it isn’t the king. After He kills Polonius, he started to yell at his mother and starts hurting her. This is when the ghost appears and Hamlet is the only one to see it. His mother thinks he is crazy. That is when she says, “Alas, he’s mad” (Act 3 sc 4 line 121) When his mother is killed accidently by the king, Hamlet realizes something is up.
Macbeth is visited by the ghost of Banquo, who he murdered to protect his secret. Macbeth says to the ghost, "Thou canst not say I did it: never shake / Thy gory locks at me." Banquo’s blood is a source of guilt for Macbeth, as he used to be his friend. He is so guilty, that he starts to hallucinate, and this is the beginning of his gradual decline into madness. After all the guests have left, Macbeth reflects that, ‘… blood will have blood.’ He thinks that Banquo’s ghost wants revenge, and this adds a new dimension to his guilt and fear of the ghost’s return.
Hamlet faced himself with a painful loss and feels the betrayal towards his mother due to the reason that she married the murderer of her husband. Hamlets emotions start to change drastically due to the indecision of how to proceed his situation. Should he go towards revenge and fallow his duty as son or fallow his duties and expectations as Prince. Hamlet finds a way in which he could fallow his duty as son by killing Claudius in a manner in which he would not find fault in. Hamlet gathers evidence against Claudius and then has the right to comply with his revenge towards Claudius but also stays as Prince to fallow his responsibility.
Everyone became more cautious and many had lost the trust of foreign societies, even society itself. This concept is modeled by William Shakespeare’s Hamlet, where immense adversity shapes the character of young Hamlet in his search for vengeance in his father’s name. In the play, Hamlet is first confronted with adversity when a ghost explains that his father was murdered by his uncle. This situation shifts his identity and forces the already mourning Hamlet into a deep depression where he is hell bent on revenge. At the start of the play, Shakespeare introduces Claudius as a wise and confidant ruler with no apparent flaw.
This scene does this in two ways, making the reader sympathise with Hamlet and making the reader feel apathetic toward Claudius. The audience is manipulated to sympathise with Hamlet because he has just learned that his father’s death was no accident as he had presumed. Furthermore, Hamlet has just learned that it was none other than his uncle that killed his father. This is an unimaginable situation and it leaves the reader no other choice than to feel for Hamlet. On the hand, there lies Claudius.
Hamlet’s mental state plays a large role as he is severely depressed by the death of his father and also very disturbed by his mother marrying his uncle. At that point Hamlet has two options, to somehow fill the void his father had left, or to slip into madness. The perfect solution came when Hamlet’s father, King Hamlet, appeared to him as a ghost. His dad told him that Claudius killed him and he wanted Hamlet to avenge his death. This was perfect for Hamlet.
Here Macbeth has lied because he has been to see the weird sisters earlier in the play.This now tells us that his loyalty is deteriorating as he prepares himself for the murder of King Duncan. This is dramatic irony because the audience know that he is going to kill the King however most of the actors on stage don’t know of his plan. As the play goes on you discover that Macbeth becomes less and less loyal to Banquo (ending in his murder) also to his wife Lady Macbeth by showing little regret for her death ‘She should have died hereafter’ this tells the
“So excellent a king.” (Act 1, Scene 11, Line 149) this proves how much he wanted to be like him. Hamlet’s mother marriage with King Claudius, makes Hamlet upset because King Claudius was his father’s brother. “ Upon my secure hour thy uncle stole With juice of cursed hebona in a vial.” ( Act 1, Scene 5, Lines 61-62) Hamlet finds out that Claudius killed his father to take the throne when he talked with his father’s ghost. This gave reason to Hamlet to avenge his father’s death. Hamlet makes his first move against King Claudius by telling the actors to play a tragic play by which he can see King Claudius’s reaction.
[SS] It is in the [this?] state of mind that he meets the ghosts [more than one?] of his father. When he meets the ghost he isn’t afraid of the ghost but instead wants to confront the ghost face to face. It is at this point in the play were [that] Hamlet finds out that his uncle murdered his father[.]
The ghost tells Hamlet that he was killed by Hamlets uncle: “Ay, that incestous, that aldulterate beast, with witchcraft of his wit, with traitorous gifts.” (I.V.43-80). This causes Hamlet to investigate Claudius, trying to find guilt in his face, as well as leading to his hatred towards Claudius. Another betrayal is one that most people would never expects. Hamlets two best friends who he has known since childhood betray him. Rosencrantz and Guildenstern become spies for Claudius telling him about Hamlet while pretending to be his friends after being offered payment: “ If it please you to show us so much gentry and good will, as to expend your time with us a while for the supply and profit of our hope.”(II.II.19-25).
