Macbeth” is a tragedy written by Shakespeare. The story is played somewhere between 1600 and was performed for King James 1.It is a tragedy about a man’s fall. It could be suggested that macbeth is responsible for the death of king Duncan. According to my point of view, Macbeth didn’t killed Duncan , banquo and macduff 's family because he wanted to be evil because he met the witches .He did everything because of ambition, jealousy , lust for power and because he was power hungry from the beginning. Macbeth made the choices by his own,he wasn’t forced or fated to make any of the choices he made.
Macbeth was not fit to be a king with his ambitious mind set. When the witches told Macbeth about the future and him becoming king. Macbeth went to great lengths to make sure they came true. The witches just told him facts, they did not tell Macbeth how they would come about. Macbeth was responsible for his own actions when killing King Duncan, the guards, and his best friend Banquo.
Duncan called Macbeth “golden” (1:7,33). Macbeth has always been there for his king, so no one would expect him to commit treason. Yet after a while, Banquo and Macbeth talk about the three weird sisters prophecies Banquo says to stop about the “cursed thoughts” (2:1,8). Macbeth was told he will be king, but in order for him to be king, he must kill Duncan. Macbeth is now driven mad and tries to not remember the
The reason some readers may give him that name is for all the killing Macbeth does in order to become king.

There the audience knows that Macbeth understands what he did but he is trying to forget. But many see him still as a tragic hero because his flaw is what allowed him to proceed with the killing.
In William Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Macbeth, Shakespeare introduces us to a man on a mission to assassinate the reigning king of Scotland, King Duncan. Through King Duncan, Shakespeare reveals Macbeth’s crude and unfiltered nature while capturing every second of Macbeth’s sadistic plan. With the use of paradox, internal character struggles, and the idea of fate, Shakespeare provides insight on what madness Macbeth created and the effect his madness has on other characters. Through the use of paradox in the play, minor details guide the path of the story to the very end. Without the use of paradox throughout the play, the play would not make any sense at all.
Throughout The Tragedy of Macbeth, we see the character of Macbeth change from a person of great honor and respect to someone who is engulfed in the greed for power. When Shakespeare wrote his play, he was showing the world what a tragic hero seems to be like, but did he really know what it meant to be a tragic hero himself when writing his play. A tragic hero is a character who makes a judgment error with the right intentions in mind, but this ultimately leads to their demise even if they thought they were doing the right thing (Berquist). Now the way Macbeth’s character was written, he seems to be a little different than the usual tragic hero. He seems to go through a change in the play and that change makes it so that Macbeth is no longer

A great example of hamlet not being a coward would be when he goes to talk to his mom and he ends up killing polonius.

He was the one who became paranoid and killed many innocent people, including: Banquo, Fleance, MacDuff’s family, and Siward’s son. These were all of Macbeth’s free will, but his actions proved the prophecy to be correct. Macbeth fulfilled the prophecy because he had prior knowledge of it.
