“Thou poor ghost.” (I, v, 97) Hamlet pities his father, as he was murdered and was not given the chance to pray. This conjures frightening thoughts in his mind, for if he were to be murdered as well, would he be sent to burn in purgatory? Towards the middle of the play, though Hamlet’s thoughts still point towards suicide, he begins to toy with the possibilities of what death could be like. “To die, to sleep; … perchance to dream.” (III, i, 60-65) He may find some comfort in death if death
No matter the reason, many people do think about the pros and cons of taking their own life. Although Hamlet thought about killing himself throughout the play he could not bring himself to do it. This was because of his religious, aesthetic, and moral views. From a religious view, Hamlet worries that if he commits suicide, he will be going against his religion. According to the Christian religion, it is strictly forbidden for all acts that can lead to taking one’s own life.
In my opinion, Hamlet is a young man that deeply loves his father and is severely affected by his death. Even though Hamlet has learned the truth of his father’s death by his uncle, he is indecisive. He hesitates and cannot bring himself to kill Claudius. At the right moment in which Hamlet could have murdered Claudius he becomes doubtful. It is because Claudius is speaking his prayers to God and Hamlet is unsure if he should strike in fear that he will be sent to hell.
Although fate as coincidence plays an important role in the play, Romeo and Juliet are doomed by their own actions. Actions which were done without thought and done impulsively can have many consequences. Yes, Romeo and Juliet’s actions were done without any consideration, and they paid a price for it – death. Firstly the killing of Tybalt, secondly falling in love and getting married quickly, and lastly the fact that they killed themselves lead them to their tragic end. Killing Tybalt was a foolish decision of Romeo’s.
It is the ultimate act of love- killing yourself for love. (Quote goes here, could not find one!) This therefore shows that love is to blame because Romeo killed himself out of love for Juliet and Juliet killed herself out of love for Romeo. In conclusion Romeo, Friar Lawrence and love are all equally to blame for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet. Romeo for his immature behaviour and killing Tybalt which made him banished, Friar Lawrence for helping the two lovers in their plans to be together, and love, because Romeo and Juliet were so deeply in love they could not live without each other so they both killed themselves.
As the novel turns out, Romeo and Juliet conclude the play by committing suicide, each thinking that they shouldn’t live for the other is dead. Friar is to blame for this, because he failed to get the message across to Romeo that Juliet is faking her death. Friar is the one who should be given all the blame. As a result of his absent mindedness, Romeo feels that his life is worthless, for Juliet has
There are some people that are quick to react and don’t think through everything. How about someone so impulsive he almost kills himself just because he had to leave town? Then they were depressed and thought they could never love again because a girl he liked won’t get married to anyone. Then he end he buys poison and plans to kill himself because he thought his wife was dead. That is how impulsive Romeo is in the in William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet.
Further more, as the play progresses, after multiple impulsive acts, Romeo decides to kill himself when he finds Juliet “dead”. If he had chosen to simply think about what he was going to do or went to Friar Lawrence to make sure that Juliet was truly dead, Juliet would have been able to wake up and none of them would be dead. Ultimately, it was Romeo’s ignorant choices combined with his impulsive ways that ended up killing him and his
He suggested the plan of killing herself, which led to Romeo committing suicide due to the death of Juliet. Consequently, Juliet ended her life because of Romeo’s death. Friar Lawrence thought he was doing the best by marrying Romeo and Juliet. However, his good intentions became the reason of the deaths of multiple
Hamlet shocked by the murder he had accidentally committed scared him, knowing he is Ophelia’s father. When Rosencrantz and Guildenstern talked to Hamlet to see where Polonius’ body had been placed he refused to tell them. King Claudius sent Hamlet away for his safety but planned for his murder after Hamlet had left. After Hamlet had killed Polonius, Ophelia never recovered from her father’s death. She had now gone mad.
