Hamlet does not fit my standard as a hero. He is more of a vigilante acting out of desire and madness. He may have begun with the greatest intentions but as we all know the road to hell is paved with good intentions.

He turns vengeful and paranoid which leads to many unneeded deaths and a great deal of tragedy for all survivors in the play, which there are not very many from the cast w...

High School-College Contrasts
High School/College Contrasts I have spent four years in high school and only two and a half months in college, but I have already noticed a lot of differences between the two.

He believed that the proletariat would focus their energies together against the present state of affairs. Because as the bourgeoisie gathers more and more capital, the number of prole...
