The reason why the protagonist is a monster due to wanting power is because of all the chaos that happened after gaining that power. In the beginning of the play, we all know that Macbeth wants to murder Duncan to become king of Scotland and obtain power. After gaining power, chaos happened all over Scotland. Macbeth killed Banquo because the main character had the feeling Banquo knew he killed Duncan, to prove this, Banquo says to the audience “Thou hast it now, Cawdor, Glamis, all, As the weird women promised, and, I fear, Thou play’dst most foully for it.” Which shows that Banquo knows Macbeth is suspicious. When the main character gained the power, he instantly killed characters from the play which shows that Macbeth wanted power to rule Scotland and kill anyone who goes against him, or counts him suspicious which makes him a monster for wanting power.
Macbeth feels that Macduff is a traitor, when he finds out Macduff chose not to attend his banquet. In a spiteful, impulsive act of revenge Macbeth orders several murders to Macduff’s castle to kill his family. Macbeth thought that the killing of Macduff’s family would shatter his will to fight leaving him demoralized. In fact, the murder of his family did the exact opposite. The death of Macduff’s family made Macduff fight harder than ever, in order to avenge his family's name.
This causes him to plan to kill Macduff and his family, and in return they raise an army and slaughter Macbeths army. “Bring thou this fiend of Scotland and myself, within my sword's length set him; if he ‘scape, heaven forgive him too!”(IV.iii.33-35). This is the reason Macbeth eventually falls to tragedy and ends up dying during a war with Macduff. Macbeth being the cause of tragedy in the play had three main causes. The witches prophecies, Lady Macbeth being his wife and influencing him more than anyone else could, and Macbeth's ambition, all led to Macbeth causing the tragedy, which ultimately ended up killing him.
After they leave, Macbeth questions Banquo about the witches. Banquo... ... middle of paper ... ...he witches' have tricked him, but he also realises that it is useless and so he fights on only to be slain. After the murder I think that Macbeth became more evil with every passing day. He ordered Banquo's and Fleance's death without any hesitation. He ordered the death of everyone connected to Macduff, all because they witches premonition told him to be wary of Macduff, "...Beware Macduff; Beware the Thane of Fife."
Another sign of Macbeth changing was when he believes the witches prophecy and fantasizes about what it would be like to be the king. Macbeth becomes selfish and kills Duncan so that he can be king. Macbeth becomes selfish so that he can keep his position as king. Macbeth begins to kill everyone that gets in his way of his throne. Macbeth eventually loses all emotion and allows his ambition to consume him.
The ghost says, “Murder most foul, as in the best it is. But this most foul, strange and unnatural” and “Revenge his foul and most unnatural murder.” These weighty words inspired rage and vengeance into Hamlets heart. After the Ghost uttered these words, Hamlet was ready to violently kill whoever was responsible for this unspeakable act against his father. In the end, his Hamlets quest for vengeance led to the deaths of almost every character in the play. Without a doubt, Shakespeare uses poison as the master metaphor in Hamlet.
He ends up killing a plethora of people throughout his kingdom in order to feel safe. Macbeth becomes unstable, and he begins to see ghosts of people he has killed; through Macbeth seeing the ghosts of his victims, it becomes apparent that he cannot handle the consequences of his murders. Macbeth is an evil person for what he did; there were influences among him who convinced him of murdering innocent people, but that does not excuse his
The apparition gives motive for Macbeth, at this point he is impulsive and acts without thinking. Macbeth summons the murders again and asks them to kill Macduff’s family. Macbeth states ,“I will do this deed before I lose my sense of purpose” this quote implies the spattering of Macduff’s families blood and the thoughtless actions of Macbeth. Like Banquo, Macbeth indirectly murders Macduff’s family. Macbeth has gone far enough to kill the innocent and loses his sense of self.
The parasitic nature of evil cause it to influence all objects that lay in its’ path, and Macbeth agrees to become evil's disciple. When Macbeth takes on evil, it totally consumes his mind, and it ultimately leads to his downfall. Lady Macbeth is an associated victim of Macbeth's desire to be king, and becomes thirsty for power herself. After the Macbeth’s are well into the depths of greed and corruption, it is clear that their guilt will revisit them for the rest of their lives. Those who felt the effects of their evil will reciprocate the Macbeth’s bad karma.
The inevitable demise of Macbeth was set in motion by Lady Macbeth’s greed for power, but by Macbeth becoming King and gaining all this power his morals suffered greatly, and he became fearful and paranoid of anyone that was a possible threat to his throne. In Macbeth Lady Macbeth is perceived to be very evil and conniving, she is the catalyst that pushes Macbeth into killing King Duncan. She emasculates and manipulates him, causing his psychotic tendencies. Before the murder of Duncan, Macbeth played the role of a honorable servant of the King, and was praised for killing the traitorous Thane of Cawdor. Instead of the praise of Macbeth’s bravery bettering his personal integrity, he lets his prophesies that the witches informed him about go to his head.
