appear to be the epitome of perfection, when in reality they will do whatever it takes to secure their best interests.
Claudius and Hamlet are two men who both create untrue personas in their daily lives when they are really not as they seem, just like the characters in
Water for Elephants.
"Fate was smiling on us that day in June when she lead Jacob to our train. She handed us not only a veterinarian with an Ivy League degree, but also a veterinarian so devoted to his charges that he made the most amazing discovery that ended up saving the show" (Gruen 231).
"Then he reaches for his top hat and bull hook..."I'm not the only one who is going to pay for the lemonade" he says" (214-215)
"She talks of the pain, grief, and horror of the past four years; of learning to cope with being the wife of a man so violent and unpredictable his touch made her skin crawl and of thinking, until quite recently, that she'd finally managed to do that. And then, finally, of how my appearance had forced her to realize she hadn't learned to cope at all" (272).
"I'm leaving him" (252).
"I've even seen flashes of this August before - this brightness, this conviviality, this generosity of spirits - but I know what he is capable of, and I won't forget it" (229).
"'Tis sweet and commendable in your nature, Hamlet,/And with no less nobility of love than that which dearest father bears his son do I impart toward you" (Shakespeare I.ii.86-112).
"O, my offence is rank, it smells to heaven;/It hath the primal eldest curse upon't - /A brother's murder. Pray can I not,/Through incliniation be as sharp as will" (III.iii.36-39).
"You should not have believed me; of virtue cannot so inoculate out old stock but we shall relish of it. I loved you not" (III.i.18-20).
"As I perchance hereafter shall think meet/To put an antic disposition on" (I.v.178-180).
"I loved Ophelia; forty thousand brothers could not with all their quantity of love/Make up my sum" (V.ii.236-238).
The ghost of King Hamlet proclaims to Hamlet, "The serpent that did sting thy father's life/Now wears his crown" (I.v.39-40).

Jacob realizes August's complex personality, which shows two distinct sides, and he knows that his true colours will come out sooner than later.

In reality, Claudius is really a murderer who manipulates people through his devious and conniving ways.
Jacob sees his charming, delightful side and the way he treats Marlena with attentiveness and tenderness, and Rosie with kindness.
But he realizes his cruel reality, which over powers his appearance
August puts his wife and Rosie through continuous abuse, and knows he has to pay for what he has done.
Hamlet appears to be mad and not love Ophelia.
Just as August appears to be a kind man, Claudius appears to be a great father to his step son.

Hamlet knows that Claudius really is an awful person who needs to pay for what he did
This connects to August who also needs to pay for the hurt he causes on many lives
Marlena appears to be very dependent on August, listening to all of his demands and ignoring him when he abuses her.
In reality, Marlena realizes that she can have a better life with her true love, Jacob.
August credits Jacob for saving the show
Gifts him a pocket watch
When stressed, the true August emerges
In reality, August is abusive and cruel to the animals and people who disobey him.
