So Macbeth kills the current king and then he kills Banquo. Macbeth who is trying to make his ways of gaining power remain unknown finds himself in trouble and asking the witches for another prophesy. The witches’ prophesize that Macbeth will not die by a man that is born of a woman and the Burnham woods will begin to move. They also tell him to beware of Macduff. While Macbeth is contemplating the things that the witch has said he hears a screech.
Lady Macbeth influences Macbeth to kill Duncan, but he continues to have second thoughts about it (i.vii.31-34) and feels terribly guilty afterwards (II.ii.63-66). However, following the murder of Duncan, Macbeth loses any ethics he had left. Macbeth kills the servants, Banquo, and Macduff’s whole family in cold-blooded murder. On the other hand, when Banquo ponders the witches prophecy for him, he contemplates the thought of having to kill someone to get power, but he quickly shuts it down (III.i.9-11). In Macbeth, free will is the cause for Macbeth’s downfall and Banquo’s honest end.
“The moment on ’t; for ’t must be done tonight,” (3:1:131). The murderers are able to kill Banquo, but his son escapes. This does not please Macbeth. but there is nothing he can do now. He has another encounter with the witches and he is given more prophecies.
In stories where a character experiences a downfall, there is always something or someone who is to blame. Readers may wonder whenever these kinds of incidents happen. In the William Shakespeare play, Macbeth, the character Macbeth has an incredibly horrible downfall that progresses from the beginning to the end of the play. He starts out a normal man whom the audience would never expect to change in the way he does. As his wife, Lady Macbeth, urges him to kill king Duncan so he can become king, his urge for killing only grows and transforms him into a serial killer.
In the play Macbeth, by Shakespeare, a frightful prophecy is delivered to Macbeth and his comrade in arms Banqo, which threatens the future of Macbeth’s kingship. Three witches tell both that while Macbeth will become king, it is Banqo’s children who will ascend to the throne, not Macbeth’s. Macbeth fears not only this terrible prophecy but Banqo’s skillful ability to weather any storm unscathed. He also realizes the terrible decision to kill Duncan, which will not help him, but will help Banqo. Macbeth deeply regrets his murder of Duncan because he realizes that Banqos stratagem is so superior that he will have to make no sacrifices to ensure his son’s kingship, while Macbeth had to endure so much pain only to gain an unfruitful kingship.
“We won’t have a cure for diseases until we first have a cure for greed.” Dr.Sachin Patel. In the play Macbeth written by William Shakespeare, was about a Scottish general named Macbeth, who received a prophecy from three witches, that one he will become king. Along, with his ambition together with his eagerness to become king, he seeks guidance from his wife, Lady Macbeth and killed King Duncan. Throughout, the story he let his ambition turn into greed which earned the best of him. All through the story Macbeth changes as well as shows what ambition turns into greed looks like.
Before Macbeth had thoughts about killing the king he thought to himself.”if chance will have me king,why chance may crown me,without my stir.”(pg.336). He decided to take action instead of letting fate do it on its own. Not only did the three witches tell Macbeth he was going to be king but they also told him he was going to be thane of coward. “All hail, Macbeth that shalt be king hereafter”(pg.333). When Macbeth got a hold of the power and being king he started to treat others with less
Originally, Macbeth needed persuasion from his lady to follow through with Duncan’s murder; however, the audience sees Macbeth’s ambition grow when he plans Banquo’s death on his own. He even tells his wife to “be innocent of knowledge, dearest chuck” (3.2.45). This act of lonely violence displays the progress of Macbeth’s ambition. He went from a man who needed an extra push in order to carry out such an evil plan to one who was able to orchestrate his own scheme. Guilt and fear consume Macbeth after the first murderer informs him that Banquo has been killed but his son Fleance escaped the murderous grasp.
. While Fleance was able to escape, Banquo was not so lucky. The reason for his murder was because the witches say to Banquo that his sons will be king Macbeth is out of control, and it also led to his decision to kill Macduff’s family, as Macduff was considered a threat, having figured out his insanity. .
