He leaves Corinth and travels to Thebes, and on the way he unknowingly kills his father during a quarrel. After saving Thebes from the Sphinx, he is given the hand of Queen Jocasta, his mother, for marriage and he becomes the new king of Thebes. One of the many reasons Oedipus is a coward is that he didn’t want to face his parent s again. His thought at the moment when he blinds himself is that if he killed himself he will see his real parents in the underworld, who he had committed those crimes against. Instead of repenting for his sins he escapes them.
After Claudius had realized that Hamlet knows he committed the murder of his father, he decides to send Hamlet to England to his death, and orders Guildenstern and Rosencrantz to follow Hamlet, and he uses the method of deception by lying to the two courtiers by telling them that he is sending Hamlet away due to his madness and weird behaviour, but Claudius is really afraid for others to find the truth behind King Hamlet’s death.

I your commission will forthwith dispatch, and he to England shall along with you.” (3.3.1-4). this quote indicates the dishonesty that Claudius is showing to the two

In Hamlet, it was the ghost of King Hamlet who revealed his murder to Prince Hamlet. In the Lion King, Mufasa also appears to Simba in the form of a ghost to give him insight on how to save the kingdom. The death of Scar and Claudius are both ironic. Both of the villains die in the way they killed their brothers.
21 March 2012 Hamlet Essay What if Hamlet would have confronted Claudius, and asked about the murder of his father, and why does Hamlet delay killing Claudius? In Hamlet, Hamlet is secretive which leads to the deaths of many people. Hamlet remains quiet about his father’s murder to keep himself safe. Marcus Webb says, “Hamlet wants to be completely convinced of Claudius’ guilt first.” Hamlet could not tell his mother because if he was wrong, it would ruin their relationship, and Hamlet would not be trusted. Hamlet could not announce it to all of Denmark because the people might rebel against the king and if Hamlet was wrong, he might create a war between his family and the people of Denmark.
Brutus was the last of the conspirators to stab Caesar, while Lady Macbeth plots the murder of Duncan. Brutus also made a plan how do kill Caesar, similar to Lady Macbeth who manipulated her husband to commit a murder. These two character are great planners and liars, because their victims didn’t know what they are up to. Lady Macbeth and Brutus are both loyal and loving wife and husband, however, when Macbeth doubts his intension to kill Duncan, Lady Macbeth, manipulates him effectively by questioning his manhood, while when Portia kills herself, Brutus seems like he doesn’t really care about his wife’s death. This could be explained by Lady Macbeth’s ambition and the fact that Brutus was in state of chaos when his wife killed herself.
Hamlet yells, “How now? A rat? dead for a ducat, dead!” (Act 3 scene iv, line 23) as he stabs whoever could be behind the curtains. Just because Hamlet killed Polonius “in a fit of madness,” (Act V, Scene ii, lines 236-250), does not mean that Hamlet is insane.

Claudius did so in order to gain access to the throne because he is at the top of the list of King Hamlet’s Line of Succession. Hamlet is convinced that he must kill Claudius in order to avenge his father’s “foul and most unnatural murder.” (I.V.25) Hamlet carefully plans the killing so that Claudius will go to hell in order for his father to be at peace. In addition, Hamlet is the only character in the play that knows the truth of his father’s death but is condemned by Claudius as a “madman that [must] not go unwatched.”(III.I.190) Therefore, Claudius’s royal servants and his wife, Gertrude, are convinced that Hamlet is an insane man whose words cannot be trusted. Claudius abuses his power even more by sending Hamlet’s school friends, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, to escort Hamlet to England to have him killed. In the end, Claudius‘s corruption gets the better of him as he is killed by his own poison that Hamlet inflected on him but Hamlet is also killed by the same poison.
