In doing this I will also examine the context in which "Hamlet" was written, and the aims of Shakespeare within this Metaphysical period. This will provide me with a springboard into looking at whether Hamlet's tragic downfall occurred because one of the indications was the unlikelihood of Claudius being a successful replacement, because it will allow me to examine how far the reasons for Hamlet Junior wanting to avenge his father derive from his anger that Claudius cannot replace his father.

Claudius' main motive for killing his brother is he wants to become him. Claudius wanted to be king, marry Gertrude and stop Hamlet from being king. We knew Claudius killed old Hamlet in the beginning of the play but we suppress our knowledge in order to engage in the development of the story. Shakespeare encourages this by involving the audience in Hamlet's struggle to accept his mother's incestuous marriage, the mourning of his father and his relationship with Ophelia. The Christian church insisted that vengeance was God's business not man's. Revenge was both a mortal sin and a sin by law.

Such stunts can lead to arrests and/or criminal records, which can permanently prevent these teenagers from getting specific jobs. These students are also unknowledgeable about drugs and may either unknowingly take poisonous drugs, misuse the drugs, or overdose on drugs. All of these situations are extraordinarily dangerous and result in deaths every year. Yet, despite all of these consequences, drugs are still being used daily in high schools. Clearly, drug use in high schools has become a very serious issue for all parties involved. A solution is needed quickly in order to save today's youth and render them responsible enough to run our world tomorrow.

Celeste was blushing redder than a tomato; she couldn't remember when a man last gave her such a compliment (most likely due to her amnesic state). "Well then, shall we get going?" "Where to, and why do you want me to come with you? I still have no idea who on earth you really are," spouted Celeste, she was now rather tense. "All will be explained in due time, all I want to do is help you find meaning for your life," "That's a little hazy, but I trust you.

It looked like no other house she had seen before. Its walls were tall, with beautiful stone carvings as decorations, giving Cassandra an impression of an old small castle like house, with four floors and a massive roof pointing out, nearly blocking the sun set. A sound of a slamming door echoed to Cassandra's earshot, closely followed by the yells of excitement, which she recognized straight away. "CASSIE!" three girls, around the same age, came running, hands outstretched toward her. "Lucy, Polina, Jennifer!" Cassie screamed out and let herself be welcomed by hugs of her three best friends.

Analysis of article from 'The Sun' Graphology: The article that I am analysing appears on the front page of The Sun, as a main story being published on that day. A large, bold headline appears under the phrase 'F1 r****m Storm', reading 'A load of Prix'. This is clearly a homophone, as there are two meanings, two spellings but identical sounds of the word 'prix'. The word 'Prix' could be considered as taboo lexis if it was spelt differently. A sub-heading appears underneath this reading 'Lewis blasts Spanish bigots as fury grows', with 'blasts' being an example of journalese.
