Macbeth indicates the location of the king's room, and Macduff discovers the body. When the murder is revealed, Macbeth swiftly kills the prime witnesses, the sleepy guards of the king's bedchamber, and Lady Macbeth faints. The assembled lords of Scotland, including Macbeth, swear to avenge the murder. With suspicion heavy in the air, the king's two sons flee the country: Donalbain to Ireland and Malcolm to raise an army in
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.
After Macbeth murders King Duncan, he becomes worried that his friend Banquo might try to overthrow him, for the witches that predicted that Macbeth was going to be king also “hailed [Banquo] father to a line of kings” (Shakespeare 69). In order to stop this, Macbeth orders three murders to murder Banquo as he is horseback riding with his son, Fleance. Similarly, Iago has been plotting the downfalls of all the characters in Othello. One example of this is at the end when Iago wants to get rid of Roderigo because “[h]e call[ed] [him] to a restitution large [o]f gold and jewels;” Iago accomplishes this by tricking Roderigo into fighting Cassio (Shakespeare 223). When Roderigo was injured in the fight, Iago murders him.
He changes from trustworthy, courageous and brave to feeling guilty, afraid and unreliable. We find out that Macbeth is transitioning from bad to evil wen he kills Banquo, his loyal partner, when Macbeth killed Banquo, he, became guilty, and started hallucinating of Banquo sitting in his chair. After the death of Banquo, he finds out that Macduff is helping Malcolm build an army, so he sends his murderers to kill Macduff’s Family. At the end of the play, he says ‘Out, out, brief candle, life’s but a waling shadow. Here Macbeth is considering whether life is meaningful.
He had the actors to perform a murder scene that he had been told by the ghost as to how his uncle killed his father. When the moment of murder arrives, Claudius got out of the room, implying that he is really guilty, as Hamlet and Horatio have agreed on. Hamlet went to kill his uncle but then didn’t. Claudius, now fearing for his own safety, ordered to send Hamlet to England
Macbeth knows that Banquo is suspicious of Macbeth’s secrets and decides that he must be killed. Macbeth orders two men to murder Banquo as he rides because Macbeth knows Banquo is going to find Malcolm and Donalbain. If these two are found Macbeth would lose his crown and the truth would be revealed. Macbeth asks Banquo all these questions about his ride out and tell Banquo of the Banquet. Macbeth says “ Tonight we’re having a ceremonial banquet, and I want you to be there”(III.i.15-16).
For example, Macduff deserts his family in order to go to England to meet with Malcolm and the king of England, so all three of them can go back to Scotland to defeat Macbeth for once and all. In Act IV, Scene 3, Macduff says that he would like to take up their swords and defend where they were born: “Let us rather Hold fast the mortal sword, and like good men Bestride our down-fall’n birthdom” (l. 2-4). When Macduff is in England talking to Malcolm and the king of England, Macbeth takes action and has Macduff’s family
Hamlet speaks to his father’s ghost and is bound to follow the commissions given to him by the ghost. The ghost tells him that Claudius murdered his father and Hamlet begins to seek revenge and takes the ghosts comments as commands. “Yea, from the table of my memory, I’ll wipe away all trivial fond records, All saws of books, all forms, all pressures past that youth and observation copied there, And thy commandment all alone shall live within the book and volume of my brain,” (I, V, 99-04) Hamlet tells the ghost ill wipe my mind and follow your commands after he finds out that Claudius murdered his father. In both plays, the dialogue with the supernatural is what drives both tragic heroes to their
Early in the play, Macbeth and his wife toss around the idea of killing Duncan in order to become the king of Scotland. Lady Macbeth is able to manipulate Macbeth into doing so, Macbeth begins to seem shaken and flustered because of the deed he has done to his cousin. Macbeth then becomes king as told in his prophecy by the three witches, and does what he can in his power to keep that title and begins to lose his path due to ill/rattled thoughts and actions that happen beginning with Duncan’s murder. Macbeth’s introduction in this play begins with his meeting with the three witches or weird sisters. They tell him about his prophecy of becoming thane of Cawdor and even larger, the king of Scotland.
Macduff finds the king dead and orders the bell to be rung and wakes all who is in the house. Lennox, a noble to the king, states that the watchmen did it due to the planted evidence and Macbeth quickly replies that he killed them. Macduff gets suspicious and asks where and how he did it. As Macbeth is explaining, his wife cries, “Help me hence, ho!” (Shakespeare 2.3.71), to interrupt their conversation and get the motive off of Macbeth. Lady Macbeth lies about her health to cover her and her husband’s ignoble doing which leads to a lethal consequence on
