.... avoided many times. Hamlet had many opportunities to kill Claudius, but did not take advantage of them. He also had the option of making his claim public, but instead he chose not too.

While in all Shakespearean tragedies, the hero dies, in others he may live but suffer "Moral Destruction". In Oedipus Rex, the proud yet morally blind king plucks out his eyes, and has t .....

King Lear - The Fool: A Motivated Character
Words: 913 / Pages: 4

.... Fool is an “all licensed critic who sees and speaks the truth around him,” (162-165). He deals with the tragic aspect of life in its most universal form.
