In the end, both Scar and Claudius end up dying the same way as they killed their brother. Both of their right hand man ends up turning on them. Laertes tells Hamlet that Claudius was the one who poisoned Old King Hamlet. In The Lion King the Hyenas turn on Scar after bringing him in and giving loyal services for many of years. It is very ironic yet fitting for these two villainous characters the way it turns out for both of
Claudius and Scar are characters whom have played very similar roles in the book/movie. They were the jealous brothers who killed the Kings so they came take their throne. Claudius became King of Denmark and Scar became King of Pride Rock. The Hyenas and Rosencrantz and Guildenberg are characters whom have played the roles of betrayal in the book/movie. The hyenas betrayed Scar when Scar ordered them to kill Simba before he runs away.
She becomes evil and ambitious before the murder of Banquo, and then she becomes fearful of her surroundings because of her guilt after Banquo's murder. Lady Macbeth develops her evil character by informing Macbeth about her idea of killing King Duncan and taking over the throne. "What beast was 't then, that made you break this enterprise to me? When you durst to it, then you were a man; and to be more than what you were, you would be so much more than a man...When Duncan is asleep, his two chamberlains will I with wine and wassail so convince that memory, the warder of the brain, shall be a fume, and the receipt of reason a limbeck only..." said Lady Macbeth (I, VII, Lines 55-77). Lady Macbeth is convincing Macbeth about her plan to kill Duncan when he sleeps.
Dramatic Irony Critical Analysis For my critical analysis of dramatic irony in Hamlet I chose when Hamlet learns that his father was poisoned by Claudius. This situation is dramatic irony because Hamlet and the reader know that it was Claudius was the one that killed Hamlet’s father, but the rest of Denmark believes that King Hamlet was bitten by a snake. The rest of Denmark believes this because Claudius started this rumor to cover-up what he had done. This scene also manipulates the audience’s sympathies. This scene does this in two ways, making the reader sympathise with Hamlet and making the reader feel apathetic toward Claudius.
But in Walt Disneys The Lion King all the characters from the Hamlet are turned into animals. The young prince whose father is murdered by his fathers brother name is Simba. King Claudius would also be compared to Scar in the lion king because he murdered Mufasa who was Simba’s father and the king of the jungle. In the movie Simba also delays his actions much like Hamlet in the play when he finds out who murdered his fathers. In both the play and the movie the fathers of both princes approach their sons in the same way, each prince encountered a ghost who told them what really happen to their fathers.
This was a evil decision that he made for the first time. After murdering King Duncan, Macbeth became a king of Scotland. However, he did not stop murdering. Macbeth decides to kill his best friend, Banquo and Banquo’s son, Fleance, because the three witches prophesied that while Macbeth himself would be king, it was the descendents of Banquo that would be kings down the line. In other words the kingship won’t stay in Macbeth’s line with his kids being after him.
And the last similarity, though not in exact description, is Amleth/Hamlet killing his uncle, the king. Now that you know the similarities, let’s move on to the differences. The first difference between the two stories is that in Hamlet, Hamlet sees the ghost of his dead father, and tells Hamlet that his uncle, who is now king, was the one who killed him. He also orders him to seek the revenge of his murder and to kill his uncle. Hamlet obviously agrees to this and sets out to follow the ghost’s demands.
Hosu Yoon Period 2 – English Prompt 2 Only the most extreme situations can bring out the naked character of a person. In Shakespeare’s two tragedies Macbeth and Julius Caesar, the similarities and differences among Brutus and Macbeth show that there is more than one kind of murderer. With two clashing motives and mindsets, the tragic heroes act completely different in similar scenes. Brutus confidently killed Julius Caesar with the belief that it is for the good of all Rome, while Macbeth hesitatingly killed Duncan with the dream of becoming a king of his own. Brutus’s intentions were reasonable and straightforward while Macbeth committed the crime because of his ambitious and corrupt characteristics.
The personality traits of insanity and intellectuality also contribute greatly to the death of Hamlet. Hamlet’s tragic flaw is his procrastination. Without a doubt, Hamlet portrays procrastination and indecisiveness multiple times in the play. The ghost of Hamlet’s father visits him in the beginning of the play informing Hamlet that he was murdered by his own brother, Claudius: “The serpent that did sting thy father’s life/ Now wears the crown”(I.v.44,45). Furthermore, Shakespeare exhibits how Hamlet chose to devise a plan of acting mad, rather than avenging his father’s death immediately, progressing to his demise.
King Hamlet's ghost uttered to Hamlet, “The serpent that did sting thy father's life now wears his crown” (1.5.39). Hamlet agreed to avenge his father's death. Now, his life had a purpose, which is to kill Claudius. Aside from his father's death, there was something else that sent him spiraling down. He was denied access to his love, Ophelia.
