.“A damn'd defeat was made. Am I a coward?” Hamlet states about himself. A life without trust can lead to self destruction. Hamlet cannot trust his own mother because he believes she married the man who killed his father. He cannot trust his stepfather Claudius because Claudius is the murderer.
Hamlet Analysis “Such an act that blurs the grace and blush of modesty, calls virtue hypocrite, takes off the rose from the fair forehead of an innocent love and sets a blister there, makes marriage vows as false as dicers’ oaths—O, such a deed…”. (III, iv, 47-52) In the argument between Hamlet and his mother, Hamlet was in the process of exposing her for who she is. He soon sees the Ghost of his father, and Gertrude believes he has descended into madness. The closet scene in which Polonius is brutally murdered is, due to the turn of events that happen following it, is the climax of the story. It serves as the overall catalyst for the exile of Hamlet, the fencing match between him and Laertes, and the sudden string of deaths.
Macbeth's character flaws are having too much greed for power, lack of judgement, and insanity. In Shakespeare's play, Macbeth's ambition and poor decision making lead towards his tragic downfall.

She is asking him if he wants to be king or not, and if he is to be king he must commit regicide. By telling Macbeth this, she is his doubting his manliness, and his ambitions. She goes further to say that she would make a better man than he: “I would, while it was smiling in my face,/ Have pluck'd my nipple from his boneless gums,/ and dash'd the brains out, had I so sworn as you/ Have done to this” (Act I, Scene vii, Lines 56-59) As a result of this verbal abuse and pressure, Macbeth ends up killing Duncan that same night. This shows us that Lady Macbeth's ambition is greater than Macbeth’s, because while he hesitates and is distrustful of his powers, she never wavers. She needs no supernatural temptations to urge her on.
(Hamlet, I.ii.156-159) He was later followed by a ghost. It was his father speaking to him telling Hamlet that he had been poisoned by his brother, Hamlets uncle. “The serpent that did sting thy father’s life now wears his crown.” (Ghost, I.v.40-41) Hamlet was outraged, and knew something had to be done. His mother married the man that killed his father. Hamlet was confused and left in a state of despair.
In the novel The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald, competition between Tom and Gatsby over the heart of Daisy has brought out the worst in both of them leading to their denounced relationship. While at the parlor of a suite in the Plaza Hotel, Gatsby tells Tom that Daisy never loved him and only married him because he was poor and she was tired of waiting for him. Tom was upset after Gatsby’s remark and informs everyone that Gatsby is a bootlegger and informs the others about the illegal activities Gatsby was involved in with Wolfsheim (Fitzgerald 130-135). Gatsby said this to Tom because he has grown to dislike him during his quest to win Daisy back. He does not like the way Tom treats Daisy and believes he should be the one that is with her, especially because of Tom’s actions toward Daisy such as talking on the phone with his mistress Myrtle, Wilson’s wife, in front of her (Fitzgerald 15).
