Unlike in Oedipus Rex where the tragedy is caused by a twist of fate, in Antigone it is caused by human folly. As Creon’s tragedy is more real, the audience can identify with the emotions and relate to the character. Tragedy of the play Antigone The play begins with an atmosphere of impending...

His delay even brought him to madness. Since hamlet is contemplative and thoughtful by nature, he doubts that the ghost he had spoken with is really his father or he even doubts that the ghost is real. Another consideration that Hamlet puts in is if it is appropriate to kill King Claudius when it is not proven that Claudius killed former King Hamlet. At Act I Scene II, A room of state at the castle, Hamlet said: O, that this too too solid flesh would melt Thaw and resolve itself into a dew! Or that the...
