Macbeth more than aptly demonstrates the theme "fair is foul and foul is fair". A courageous soldier leading his king to victory should have no part in criminalistic and foul activities. However, Macbeth's behaviour proves that even the most heroic can have a villainous core and once provoked, as Macbeth is by his wife, even the most fair may turn foul.
