Dr. Roylott is presented as a character that is not necessarily an angry man and is not at full mental capability. This is discovered when Helen Stoner describes how Dr. Roylott disposed of a former butler and accused thief ‘In a fit of anger...be beat his native butler to death.’ The slang word ‘fit’ shows that this was an outburst and he is not usually angry to the mental state of wanting to commit homicide. This shows he could have been outraged by his daughter to the point where he had a fit of anger and kill her for a simple reason. This makes the reader feel unsafe around Dr. Roylott, as they are worried he could snap at any moment, but gain more confidence in Holmes as they feel he could easily beat a man who is not at full mental capability.

Although stricken with grief by his father’s death and the clamorous events that follow, Hamlet does not become truly mad because he is still able to distinguish right form wrong and maneuver logically in his plan to avenge his murdered father. Shakespeare surreptitiously places revelations of Hamlet’s sanity throughout the play. Though his planned maneuver to murder his uncle Claudius, the contrast between his feigned madness and Ophelia’s true madness, and his ability change behavior around different characters that possess his trust, Hamlet’s true, rational condition emerges from beneath his veil of insanity.
