In Act III of William Shakespeare’s Macbeth, he uses many different themes to show the feel of many characters: the corrupting power of unchecked ambition, the relationship between cruelty and masculinity, and the difference between kingship and tyranny. The fundamental subject of Macbeth—the demolition fashioned when desire goes unchecked by good imperatives—discovers its most intense expression in the play 's two principle characters. Macbeth is a gallant Scottish general who is not normally slanted to confer malice deeds, yet he profoundly longings force and headway. He executes Duncan against his better judgment and thereafter stews in blame and distrustfulness.
The play Macbeth shows many signs of the characters changing throughout it. Some characters change due to their own actions and beliefs changing, but other characters change due to the actions of others around them. Many of these changes to characters can be traced back to Macbeth and his actions and changing beliefs. While many characters changed in many ways almost all the changes to characters can be seen as negative changes.
Power-hungry Macbeth Macbeth is a very compelling and twisted character to observe on a large-scale. His development as a main character can be a bit questionable as he went from relatively normal for his culture, to the point where he terrified and ruled Scotland with an iron fist. How did this one man go from waiting patiently for the crown, to going out and murdering everyone in his path to the crown? Through the progression of Macbeth’s motives, relationships, and emotions in this Shakespeare work, it can be determined that the want of power makes Macbeth into a disturbing, unreliable, psychopath.
Throughout the play Macbeth, Shakespeare uses many metaphors and examples about gender and traditional gender roles to show us how the two main characters, Macbeth and Lady Macbeth, change throughout the piece and become different people. At the beginning of the play, both Macbeth and Lady Macbeth have many characteristics that are usually associated with the opposite gender. Shakespeare creates these gender roles to show how the characters change many of their behaviors when they are confronted with stress and power. He specifically picks these roles based on how he wants to portray these character’s views and how he wants them to fit to a common gender guideline for that era.
One of the greatest examples of character reversal is that of Macbeth and Lady Macbeth. Throughout the course of Macbeth, you see the struggle between remaining true to oneself and conforming for personal gain. As the story goes on it becomes more evident which characters listen to their conscience and which ones choose to ignore it. In the beginning of this story, Macbeth seems to be comfortable and living a happy life.
Foil Characters During King James I’s reign in 1606, William Shakespeare wrote one of his darkest tragedies, Macbeth. The story begins with witches mentioning a character named Macbeth, who fought in war along with Banquo. As they run into each other in Act I, Scene III, the witches make prophesies to them that Macbeth will be Thane of Cawdor and King of Scotland whereas Banquo will be the father of the future Kings of Scotland. These prophesies serve as a major impact on Macbeth’s behavior which will foil that of Banquo’s because of his corrupt response to making them come true.
Appearance constantly shows up in America today. People will go out of their way to buy fancy clothes to project an image of themselves that does not fit their personality. Although this happens many want to show their true personalities, they tend to shy away from people and terrified of showing their true nature.

Shakespeare strives to show through these plays that it is not always what is on the outside of a man, but what is on the inside.
