Following the witches speech, thoughts begin to emerge in Macbeth mind about killing King Duncan to become the king. This desire that Macbeth has to become king overloads him and his wife Lady Macbeth. It was amazing to see Macbeth transform from a loyal soldier to a murderer with blood staining his hands. However, Macbeth wasn’t convinced to assassinate King Duncan and the witches knew it. They decided to come again to Macbeth and poison his thought with more falsehood.
Initially, Macbeth displays negative femininity, which then develops into negative masculinity. After the witches reveal to Macbeth that he will become king, he and Lady Macbeth create a plan to kill King Duncan. However, on Macbeth’s way to kill the king, he sees an imaginary dagger with blood on it, which causes him to start freaking out inside his head thinking, “Words to the heat of deeds too cold breath gives” (II.i.61). Macbeth has worked up the courage to kill the king, but he thinks the words “too cold breath gives,” meaning the more he talks, the more his courage dies. Macbeth begins to feel guilty for even imagining the murder of King Duncan when he says “heat of deeds”.
Lady Macbeth wanted to kill King Duncan and for Macbeth to become king. She fears that her husband does not have what it takes to murder King Duncan for the title. Lady Macbeth says " Yet I do fear thy nature:/ It is too full of the milk of human kindness to catch the nearest way" (1.5.15-17) finding that her husband is to kind and noble to murder for the crown. She found herself getting mad when Macbeth asks her "If we should fail?" (1.7.59.).
Macbeth is primarily responsible for placing power in Lady Macbeth 's hands and letting her influence him. Lady Macbeth fuels the fire started by the three witches. Lady Macbeth desperately begs her husband to kill King Duncan, so she can become the Queen of Scotland. Macbeth is willing to fulfill his tempting predictions being swayed by Lady Macbeth and the witches. Macbeth discusses killing King Duncan to Lady Macbeth, to which she says, “When you durst do it, then you were a man”(ll.
The final prophecy Macbeth was given was that he will be King.With this he tells his wife Lady Macbeth the news, and convinces himself that he must kill the king. Lady Macbeth agrees, yet Macbeth starts to have doubts. Lady Macbeth pressures him and tells him to quit being a woman with this Lady Macbeth sets the murder up and Macbeth goes through with it. After this tragedy, they turn to Macbeth and gave him the throne of the Kingdom. The question is was Macbeth evil or sick, Macbeth suffers from Brief Psychotic Disorder and he is not evil.
With that being said, I think Macbeth is a tragic hero. When Macbeth killed Macdonwald, he was soon given Cawdors title by king Duncan. Later, the three witches made three predictions for macbeth. The predictions were that he would become king, Thane of Cawdor, and the Thane of Glamis. Macbeth doesn’t trust the witches so he reacts.
The Transition of Action A king can never truly be a king without a queen by his side. Shakespeare’s Macbeth tells the tale of Macbeth, a Scottish nobleman who is very satisfied with his role as Thane of Glamis until he encounters three witches who present him with a prophecy that tells of a future where he is king. Macbeth’s wife, Lady Macbeth, persuades Macbeth to be proactive in fulfilling this prophecy and assassinating King Duncan, so he can replace him as King of Scotland. She serves as the brains behind this operation, while Macbeth’s hands serve as the tools of the crime. The regicide that Macbeth perpetrates institutes him on a path of terrible sins.
Macbeth indicates that he killed Duncan to better himself, so Duncan’s death is unquestionably a result of Macbeth’s ambition. More importantly, Macbeth starts to feel that he has crossed the point of no return. He feels he cannot return to his original personality, and cannot recoup the honor and values he once had. Understandably, this proves to be depressing to Macbeth. He is clearly disturbed by the guilt that he feels because he begins to hallucinate.
In William Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Macbeth, Macbeth starts off as a respectful kinsman of Scotland. After being tempted by the power of the throne, he kills his beloved king and is tormented by paranoia and guilt. Lady Macbeth starts off as a power-hungry individual lacking remorse. Encouraging Macbeth to turn to the dark side and kill the king to achieve his ambitions, her husband becomes more corrupted and insane, killing people without a second thought. This drives Lady Macbeth to lose her own sanity as guilt and fear plagues her until eventually she takes her own life.
By saying this to her husband, alongside with her calling him “afeared” and a “coward”, she is questioning his manhood. She is setting it up so Macbeth associates letting Duncan live with being a coward. This tactic works because Macbeth murders
