Shakespeare utilizes the supernatural and destiny to pave the fate of some of his characters in his calamities. Macbeth. Julius Caesar. and Hamlet appear to hold a common fresh subject of destiny. treachery to domination. and the battle to reconstruct heaven-sent power. Shakespeare uses rhetoric to efficaciously convey the thought of destiny and the battle against it. In all three of these Shakespearean calamities characters encounter the emotion of incredulity and the battle to seek safety from destiny and to finally unrecorded life as if it were their free will. In Macbeth and Hamlet. Shakespeare appears to utilize phantoms early in the drama to efficaciously set up mysteriousness of the waies of these characters. By utilizing phantoms Shakespeare clearly makes a differentiation of the supernatural and world. In these minutes of these confrontations Shakespeare successfully establishes Hamlet and Macbeth’s mortality and their inevitableness to yielding to their destiny. But were Hamlet and Macbeth really doomed right off or were they in a state of affairs where hapless picks caused their ruin?
H. B. Charlton thinks that Hamlet being that type of adult male he is. fails to kill Claudius right after King Hamlet has been murdered doing him to yield to his destiny ( 83 ) . Besides Julius Caesar and Duncan’s shade appear in their dramas. In each of these calamities the chief character has one emotion when he encounters destiny. incredulity. Incredulity in the potency of the bow warnings and prefiguration of his destiny. And incredulity when destiny has finally become world. There is likely no better illustration of this in Shakespearean work than Cassius’s remark to Brutus. “Men at sometime were Masterss of their destinies. The mistake. beloved Brutus. is non in our stars. But in ourselves. that we are underlings” ( I. two. 140–142 ) . ”
