If all the sins that Macbeth committed were just told to a person then it leaves the reader no choice but to consider him evil and immoral; yet when the book is fully read the audience understands his mental anguish, a feeling of sympathy is aroused. Macbeth was a victim of his own power and ambition. He breaks down mentally losing power of himself, becoming very paranoid.
To men manhood is really a big deal we always want to be know as the greater not the lesser. When we are treated like lesser that gets us mad and that 's our weakness. Macbeth wife knew the right bottom to push to get Macbeth pumped up and ready to go kill the King. If he would 've chickened out then that right there would 've been another problem. To conclude this easy i believe Macbeth is a tragic hero so far in the story, but I also think he can
For example, Shakespeare makes Laertes look like a "bad guy" because he wants to kill Hamlet but in essence, Hamlet is doing the same exact thing to Claudius. It is as if Shakespeare is saying that it is okay for Hamlet to kill but it isn't ok for Laertes to feel the need for revenge. Hamlet begins a soliloquy with the line, "How all occasions do inform against me and spur my dull revenge!" (Act IV, sc. IV, li.
But could Macbeth’s behavior ever be justified? Could Macbeth ever be pitied or even excused for the actions he took? Shakespeare chooses to have Malcolm describe Macbeth as “this dead butcher” for a reason. Clearly, Malcolm loathes Macbeth for killing his father and so his choice of language, such as “butcher”, will be biased. This will also sway the audience to dislike Macbeth, because Malcolm is the hero by saving Scotland.
Yet, from what the reader has seen of MacBeth so far, this action seems highly out of character. He is initially portrayed a loyal warrior who has a wife and his own castle, and yet he still chooses to murder Duncan. The apparent reason for this is ambition, we are told this by Ma... ... middle of paper ... ...d, not once was he forced into doing anything that was not desired by him. On many occasions, the reader is tempted to see MacBeth as a simple villain and yet his resolve to carry out what he had already started influences them to rethink their opinion on his status as a villain. This remarkable blend of a tragic hero, a villain and a man beset with sheer determination is one that allows MacBeth to stand out arguably as one of the finest morality plays ever written.
No Tragic Flaw in Hamlet It was my observation after reading Hamlet, that the play and its main character are not typical examples of tragedy and contain a questionable "tragic flaw" in the tragic hero. I chose this topic because Hamlet is a tragedy, but one that is very different from classical tragedies such as Medea. I also found quite a lot of controversial debate over the play and its leading character. While reading through my notes, I found that, according to Aristotle, "the tragic hero will most effectively evoke both our pity and terror if he is neither thoroughly good nor evil but a mixture of both; and also that the tragic effect will be stronger if the hero is better than we are in the sense that he is of higher than ordinary moral worth. Such a man is exhibited as suffering a change in fortune from happiness to misery because of a mistaken act, to which he is led by his hamartia ("error of judgment") or his tragic flaw."
He hoped there would be another way, until he realized it had to be done in order for him to be successful, which was the start to a future filled with astonishing amounts of guilt for him. Secondly, another example of Macbeth showing guilt is when he imagines Banquo's ghost: “Thou canst not say I did it. Never shake Thy gory locks at me” (III.iv.45). Macbeth imagines the ghost of Banquo, and tries to tell it that the murder is not his fault, which shows he is full of guilt over the fact that he murdered Banquo. This is when it becomes more evident that the guilt is tearing Macbeth apart, and he is starting to lose his sanity as he imagines ghosts and attempts to talk to them.
"Yet I do fear thy nature, It is too full o' the milk of human kindness".

He later acknowledges his flaw in misinterpreting the witches prophecies and, as a good soldier, refuses to surrender and faces death like a man - the man that his wife wanted him to be. Overall, I think that Macbeth did not deserve this line because fate had told him that these string of incidents would occur. It was partially his fault as he knew what would happen, but failed to prevent it from happening, and he not killed Duncan, he may have been king by a lawful way.
"The Prince of Cumberland! That is a step on which I must fall down, or else o'erleap, for in my way it lies ... Let not light see my black and deep desires." (Shakespeare, 281). This quote from the soliloquy indicates that Macbeth has, indeed, told himself that he will commit the murder of Duncan, although he doesn't actually admit it until his wife pressures him to do so. With this decision, the reader (or audience) reads (or sees) that Macbeth is straying from the righteous path, and descending into the abyss, even though he is keeping his feelings to himself.
Macbeth actions don't just affect him, they affect others around him, Scotland and the natural order itself. When Macbeth first murders Duncan, the "chimneys were blown down and "the earth was feverous and did shake"; a Shakespearean tragic hero's actions normally affect other people or the country itself and this is what is happening here. Normally the audience feel great sympathy for the Shakespearean tragic hero.
