Throughout the play you see turning points and plot twists. For example, at the beginning of the play Macbeth had know idea on what will be in store for him in the future. He was a good honest soldier who did not seek trouble. But at the end of the play Macbeth become selfish and ambitious for all the wrong reasons which lead to him being killed by Macduff.
In the end, all those who trusted, honored, and praised him deserted him and finished by killing him after joining the camp of his enemies. Finally, Macbeth’s surrender to his uncontrolled passion for power led to his own tragic death and to his total transformation from being one of moral character to a heartless murderer.
