Did Shakespeare write any plays about re-doing your actions?

We have to write an essay on Romeo and Juliet for English. We have to write about how Shakespeare conveyed his theme. I said the theme was that fate cannot be avoided. I was just wondering if Shakespeare wrote any plays about re-doing actions, like a character made a mistake and got several chances to fix it, but it still ended up badly. Did he write any plays with that plot? I want to refer to it (if he wrote any) in the conclusion. Thanks. (:

    All of Shakespeare’s tragedies relate to the theme of inevitability (fate). A tragedy is inevitable. Tragedy is always fate, the idea that there is no escape and that the result cannot be changed or controlled. A tragedy is where all the lead characters die because of the ineluctable situation they are in. A tragedy is a puzzle of which there is no exit. For example in Macbeth, Macbeth says “But yet I’ll make assurance double sure, and take a bond of fate.” Although he believes he is granted immortality from the apparition, Macbeth is doubtful of his visions and decides to be double sure and guarantee his fate. Macbeth seems to always be doubtful, second-guessing himself and ends up ‘re-doing’ his actions. Yet, it is his own actions that secure his fate (death). Also in Hamlet, Hamlet’s inaction ironically leads to his death – “There’s a divinity that shapes our ends.” “There’s a special providence in the fall of a sparrow.”All of the tragedies are similar in that the tragic heroes share the same tragic flaw – a resignation to fate. Macbeth believes that he does not need to interfere in order to become king, that fate will do what it needs to do. Likewise, Hamlet’s refusal to kill king Claudius and avenge his father’s death leads to the death of himself. This is a very fatalistic, resigned attitude and this is giving up, the idea that the actions of the individual will are non-influential and inconsequential.

    you could possibly refer to hamlet as he, hamlet, seeks to revenge his father’s death and gets a few attempts to do so but doesn’t take them. similarly to r’j its a tragedy and pretty much everyone dies. there is also a great emphasis on how everyone’s actions effect each other. eg. polonius tells his daughter ophelia to stop seeing hamlet, she does, hamlet goes “mad”, polonius feels bad, ophelia eventually goes mad and eventually dies because of all this. polonius also dies being stabbed by hamlet through a tapestry as he spies on him, ordered to by the king. basically if hamlet had gotten on with revenging his fathers death and killing the new king a lot of people might not have died. dont know if this will fit in but i thought it might be a good example of effects of actions etc.
