Macbeth wanted the blame to be placed on someone other than himself so the people showed loyalty to him as the new king. In order to successfully gain the people’s respect, he planted the evidence on the guards. Then, he murdered these guards to show the people of Scotland that he was negatively impacted by the death of the king. This demonstrates the manipulative side of
The Three Kings In Shakespeare’s, Macbeth, King Duncan states,“There’s no art To find the mind’s construction in the face” (1.4.12-13). People want a king who will tell them everything he can and will not betray them in a second. King Duncan would be honest to his county. He would not kill people, unlike Macbeth. Malcolm ran away and did not have the chance to become king, so who knows if he would have been a good one or not.
Macbeth was the definition of a “man” wanting to control everyone all the time from the citizens of Scotland to his wife, I believe that in that time period it was so common for men to be controlling and bossy and Macbeth always tried to show that there was no one like him and he was not scared to demonstrate how far he could go to let everyone know that he was the boss, he was willing to kill. Macbeth was a selfish human, he never cared about anybody else but him, and he did not mind abandoning his family to save himself. Just by reading the play of Macbeth you can find out how harsh it was for people to live in those
Macduff went to England to find Malcolm, King Duncan’s son, who fled Scotland so he would not be killed like his father. Macbeth no longer considers Macduff loyal to him and becomes apprehensive. Macbeth consorts with the murderers again to kill Macduff’s family, “give to the edge o’ the sword his wife, babes, and all unfortunate souls that trace him in his line” (Act 4, Scene 1). When a messenger comes to deliver the news to Macduff, he becomes sad but Malcolm tells him “… Let grief convert to anger…” (Act 4, Scene 3). Macduff and Malcolm go to war against Macbeth eager for revenge.
Outside King Edward 's castle, Malcolm talks with Macduff, letting him know that he doesn 't believe him since he has left his family in Scotland and may be furtively living up to expectations for Macbeth. To figure out if Macduff is dependable, Malcolm drifts on about his own indecencies. He concedes that he ponders whether he is fit to be lord, since he claims to be vulgar, insatiable, and brutal. At in the first place, Macduff graciously can 't help contradicting his future ruler, however in the end Macduff can 't keep himself from shouting out, "O Scotland, Scotland!" (4.3.101).
This pride and perseverance can be seen in young Siward who was not afraid to deal with Macbeth. After Siward was told his son died because of a chest he said, “Why then, God’s soldier be he!/ Had I as many sons as I have hairs,/ I would not wish them to a fairer death/. And so, his knell is knolled (V. viii. 47-50). Young Siward was brave to confront and risk his own life to be able to accomplish his ambition of bringing back Scotland to its original ways.
I am going to point out some parts of this story that consisted of foreshadowing. In the beginning when Macbeth went to the three witches for their prophecy, he saw that he would become king of Scotland. So with this example when I read this particular act I was almost certain that in order for Macbeth to become king something would have to happen to King Duncan. At that point it hinted that King Duncan would have to die to pass on the throne. But the throne did not go to his family.
Macbeth was a honorable man but his greed for power had ruined his life. He was a loyal nobleman who killed the previous Thane of Cawdor, Macdonwald, as Macdonwald had betrayed my father, King Duncan. My father had put all his trust in Macbeth and even gave him the new title of Thane of Cawdor. However, Macbeth took advantage of that and betrayed my father, the King of Scotland. He had somehow developed an ambition to become the new King of Scotland.
Malcolm and Macduff, two very different characters in Macbeth, are trying to overthrow Macbeth and the government but through very different motives. During the conversation between Malcolm and Macduff, Macduff tells Malcolm to, “Hold fast the mortal sword and like good men / Bestride our downfall birthdom”(4.3.3-4). Macduff wants to save the people of Scotland from this terrible tyrant ruler. He is not trying to do this to gain power for himself because he is a caring and selfless character. This is shown even further because before this conversation, Macduff left his family for the greater good of Scotland.
For example, when Macduff was looking for Macbeth, Macbeth could not face him because he would have to accept the consequences for murdering his whole castle. Facing your consequences refers to human nature, because you are accepting what you have done and knowing that it was wrong. Since, Macbeth murdered Duncan, Banquo, and Macduff’s castle he already knows that he is going to hell. Macbeth accepts that he is going
