Lady Macbeth has high ambition for her spouse. She comprehends that Macbeth has a desire for the throne. Be that as it may, she expects that her spouse would experience difficulty when endeavoring to murder Duncan and want the throne on the grounds that she sees Macbeth as "full o' the milk of human kindness". Since Lady Macbeth realizes that her spouse would never have the capacity to perform such an errand, she chooses to control the of the killing of Duncan. She requests that "direst brutality" debase her.
Historically, Duncan I’s son, Malcolm III, took the throne after Macbeth’s stepson and rules Scotland from 1058 - 1093. Following his father’s murder, Malcolm III was forced to seek safety in the the court of his mother’s relatives. They later aided him in slaying Macbeth at the Battle of Lumphanan. Lulach, Macbeth's stepson, succeeded to the throne briefly before he too died at Malcolm's hands in 1058. With the death of Lulach, Malcolm became King of Scots.
One line that states Macbeth is forceful is when Macbeth states “To become king myself, I’m either going to have to step over him or give up, because he’s in my way”. One line that states Macbeth is avarice is when Macbeth says “Now I’m decided, and I will exert every muscle in my body to commit this crime.” which he referring to killing King Duncan so that he can be King next because that is what the three witches told him. Both Macbeth and Hermia make bad decisions
For instance, Lady Macbeth states “Glamis thou art, and Cawdor, and shalt be What thou art promised. Yet do I fear thy nature; It is too full o ' th ' milk of human kindness To catch the nearest way. Thou wouldst be great,Art not without ambition, but without The illness should attend it.” (1.5.15-20). After Lady Macbeth reads the letter from Macbeth, her thoughts immediately turn to murder. The problem is that Macbeth has the ambition to kill King Duncan but doesn 't want to act on it.
The story of Macbeth is written by William Shakespeare and is set in medieval Scotland. It is a story of a man who lusts to become king, becomes king, and then is ultimately defeated by the end of the play. In this play many characters come in and out of the spotlight. Some speak very few lines, and may only appear in one act of the play, while others are in every single act of the play and speak for most of story. One character that appears for just one scene, but has a major role in revealing a major plot line in the story is the Lord in act 3 scene 6.
In Macbeth’s speech while he is in deep thought on their plan to murder Duncan, Shakespeare uses metaphor to foreshadow their righteous mental demise. When Macbeth is hesitating whether or not he should assassinate Duncan, he was afraid that “We still have judgement here, that we but teach/ Bloody instructions, which, being taught, return/ To plague th’ inventor.” (1.7.8-10). The “inventor” was referring to Macbeth and Lady Macbeth, Macbeth is afraid that the “judgment” and “bloody instructions will hurt them. In these lines, Macbeth, driven by ambition, could not mollify himself of this immoral plan of Lady Macbeth. Shakespeare foreshadowed their suffering of guilt by mentioning the word “Blood” throughout the whole play after this point.
She pushed Macbeth into killing Duncan. Lady Macbeth had an opportunity to kill Duncan herself, but Duncan reminded her too much of her father “Had he not resembled my father as he slept, I had done’t ”( act 2 sc 2 lines 16-17) “Glamis thou art, and Cawdor, and shalt be what thou art promised. Yet do I fear thy nature; It is too full o' th' milk of human kindness to catch the nearest way. Thou wouldst be great, Art not without ambition, but without the illness should attend it,” Lady Macbeth (act1 sc5 lines 15-20). After hearing this, Macbeth decided to murder Duncan.
After hearing from the prophecy from the Weird Sisters, Macbeth realizes his potential to become king of Scotland. His ambition and wife drive him to take action and kill King Duncan. “I have no spur to prick the sides of my intent, but only vaulting ambition, which o'erleaps itself and falls on the other— (1.7.25-28)” Although Macbeth handled the murdered the of King Duncan very well, he did leave some holes in which people could figure out that he did kill Macbeth. For example he kills the guards which causes Macduff and the other
The theme of revenge as depicted in Homer's The Odyssey comes into play when Odysseus exacts his punishment on the wooers that invaded and denigrated his home. The revenge, in my opinion, was not only acceptable, but also, a necessity given the gravity of the situation. Although Odysseus' justice was swift and severe, this epic could not allow moderation in punishment, as it wouldn't follow the grandiosity of the story's theme. The actions of Odysseus were justified because he endured years and years of turmoil and battle. His goal was to return to his home-land and wife, Penelope.
Despite Macbeth doubting whether or not he should follow through with the assassination of Duncan, he is always convinced by Lady Macbeth that killing Duncan is appropriate. Lady Macbeth even views her husband’s weaknesses as leverage to harass him into killing Duncan. This can be seen when, at one stage, Macbeth repels the idea of killing a good king and believes that the assassination should not be done, his wife demands him to kill by saying abusive words. She questions if Macbeth loves her, she questions Macbeth’s masculinity and she criticizes Macbeth’s aspiration to be king. These three brutal statements hurt Macbeth.
When Macduff comes back he finds out of his family 's death and joins Malcolm and his army to defeat Macbeth. Macbeth states that he is not born from a woman like the witches said in one of the prophecies rather he is ripped out of her mother 's womb. Macduff made a decision to do the right thing which was to fight for his country and for Malcolm to be king. Macbeth’s decision to murder changed his whole way of life negatively. With that being said, what goes around does come around.
Macbeth is offended when she humiliates him. He does not want to be labeled with female characteristics because this would be a major insult towards him. He decides to follow through and commit the murder. Lady Macbeth also takes a shot at Macbeth’s courage. Macbeth has a problem believing that the plan will succeed.
This quote explains how Macbeth was blinded by his ambition. Even though, he achieved what he wanted, it all came to failure at the end. He had crossed his line so he got beheaded by Macduff. Then, the rightful king Malcolm, the eldest son of Duncan became the king of Scotland. When ambition is growing and remains unstoppable, it would fall with greatest loss even though it could be a good feeling at first.
