Taking Hector’s life didn’t give Achilles satisfaction hence he ties his corpse to the chariot and desecrates his body for eleven days. Later on his realises that his barbaric actions were caused by the “grief” his was experiencing “before his hear was clogged with a smoky poison”. Somax, “ordinary carter” who has lost his wife and all his children, left only with his daughter-in-law and granddaughter, grieves in silence but he does experience few anger issues but it is only expressed on a few occasions only.

People may argue that Hamlet only acted like he loved Ophelia, but I feel that he truly did have feelings for her and his vengeance got in the way of their love. Although Hamlet was cruel to Ophelia at times Hamlet truly did love her, yet he hid his feelings from her very well because he was afraid of being betrayed by the women he loved. Unfortunately for them, this led to Ophelia’s suicide. By the time that Hamlet could act on his love, it was already too late. I do not feel that Hamlet ever stopped loving Ophelia, but Hamlet caused a break in their relationship that could never be fixed.
This sadness Hamlet feels, makes him question his own life in his famous “to be or not to be” soliloquy. The murder of Claudius is his ultimate revenge, but before doing so Hamlet must deal with the incestuous activity that occurred between his mother and his uncle.

Hamlet is so frustrated with his mother and her actions, that he yells, “frailty thy name is woman!” (Shakespeare Act I scene II). His hate for women is furthered as seen in his treatment toward Ophelia later on during the play.
