He had just killed king Duncan and he says that he will never be able to wash all of the blood out of his hands. He feels so guilty that he thinks that what he did will never get better. He is seeing the consequence of listening to the witches. This is an example of guilt because at that point he would do anything to take it back. Another example of guilt is the hallucinations that Macbeth has after he kills someone.
Everyone has experienced deception; from politicians to cheating spouses, it is almost a daily experience. Actors in Shakespeare’s Macbeth are especially familiar with deception in the form of equivocation. Equivocation is intentionally using ambiguous language to mislead someone. The word itself is used extensively in the speech made by the drunken porter in the beginning of 2.3, but the theme is used throughout the book by many characters. Shakespeare uses equivocation to develop Macbeth’s character and advance the plot along Duncan’s murder.
Blood is important when it comes to violence because without violence there’s no bloodshed. After the night Macbeth killed Duncan and the chamberlains, he was terrified of what he did and said to himself “Will all great Neptune’s ocean wash this blood Clean from my hand” (2.3)? Macbeth has so much blood and guilt on his hands from the crime he has committed that essentially all the water in the world could not wash him clean of his guilt. His greed for power caused him to murder Duncan and the guards. Macbeth’s violence caused him to feel guilty for what he’s done.
Darkness can be seen in many literary works with the intention of showing a turn for the worse in many characters lives. In Macbeth by William Shakespeare, Shakespeare displays examples of violence in order to show audience members how Macbeth’s desire for kingship, led to his demise through his guilt. The use of blood, nature and supernatural elements are used as a way of symbolizing Shakespeare's theme of Macbeth’s guilt. Is one man’s desire for nobility worth the cost of others lives? Blood alters the atmosphere throughout Macbeth through the effect it has on the main character.

From practically the start of the play, MacBeth is becoming corrupt when the weird sisters say he shall be “Thane of Glamis,” (1.1) which he already is, and “Thane of Cawdor,” (1.1) which a messenger is on the way to tell him he is, “Thou shalt be KIng” (1.1) which is very suprised at and he starts to become blinded to his loyalty to the KIng, Duncan.

Violence in the Story of Macbeth by William Shakespeare In the begging of the story of Macbeth, there are many tragedies that happen throughout the whole story. Violence played an important role in the story of Macbeth that made a big impact in some of the characters that caused a complete change up. For example one of the characters that violence made a huge difference in them that was noticeable was Macbeth. In the beginning Macbeth was very calm and not violent but afterwards there was a lot of conflict during the story and Macbeth started being so mean and violent it created more conflict (Cohen n.p.). Macbeth wasn’t always violent or mean and in reality it wasn’t him that wanted all of that to happen in the first place.
Later on in the play Macbeth killed Banquo because Banquo became suspicious of Macbeth’s behavior and the fear of him finding out the truth Macbeth got him killed. At Macbeth’s coronation he see Banquo’s ghost; you can either rule it out spiritual or psychological but the way Macbeth acted in front of his kingsman made everyone suspicious as to why is he acting like this and why did he use the same story with Banquo getting killed by his son like he did with Duncan’s sons. The puzzle to the pieces started getting put together and everyone started to find out that Macbeth is the person behind the killings. Before Macbeth died he killed one more family, the Macduff family; the witches gave out warnings to Macbeth about Macduff and with that Macbeth took action and killed his whole family; Macduff did not find out about it until Ross told Macduff and he wanted his revenge. At the end of the play Macduff and Malcolm attacked the kingdom and in the hands of Malcolm he killed
Hamlet then goes on to say, “who would fardels bear,To grunt and sweat under a weary life” (3;18;84-85) and is asking the question of how anyone would want to continue their life in his situation. Due to the Ghost coming back and telling Hamlet that the death of his father was not an accident, Hamlet is now responsible for killing King Claudius. Killing a King is not easy and the longer Hamlet takes to actually complete the task, the more Hamlet is driving himself into actual madness. That madness only being created from the extraordinary amount of stress that Hamlet is under. The madness, the stress,
Charles Dudley Warner said, “People always overdo the matter when they attempt deception.” Hamlet is a play that is filled with deception. Nearly every character within the play has lied to one another or committed a form of deception, making almost every character a master in the act. Lying and secrets are prominent from the very beginning of the play. When the ghost, said to be the late King Hamlet, is introduced, it is very secretive and kept quiet. Hamlet is very secretive about the ghost, until he tries to convince Gertrude he is there, and fails in the process, which only causes her to believe he is more crazy.
