[automatically translated] Poison: a word that recurs insistently in the tragedies of Shakespeare. What reasons prompted the playwright to enter the "poison in all his works at least once"? The essay investigates the occurrences of the term, but also dwells on another very important aspect: all the characters who die from suffocation are innocent, while all those who are killed (or commit suicide) by poison are guilty. It can not be a coincidence, but a preordained dramatic setting of the system. The volume thus shows that in Shakespeare there is a definite tripartite order that regulates the sins of all the tragedies characters.
