Character Analysis Of Macduff In Macbeth

739 Words3 Pages
This written task is based upon the play Macbeth. Though readers identify the titular character of Willian Shakespeare’s Macbeth, another character stands out as a much greater protagonist. While Macbeth is driven towards madness and into committing atrocities as to fulfill his ambitions to the throne, Macduff lacks such a flaw and endures an uncorrupted and loyal behavior throughout the play. As Macbeth strives to gain power and accomplishes his purposes at the expense of King Duncan’s life, Macduff meanwhile endures great personal loss in his attempts to cease Macbeth’s despotic behavior and restore justice and freedom to Scotland. The format has been changed from a script to a soliloquy as to highlight Macduff’s perception of the tragedy that has sadly inflicted his family. Lady’s Macduff, wife of Macduff, the Thane of Five, and her, in the play, unnamed son’s appearances are brief: she and her son are introduced in Act IV Scene II, a climactic scene that ends with her and her son being murdered on Macbeth’s orders.
