The creation was dangerous to Frankenstein because he could have killed him in his sleep. The Creature told Frankenstein, “The thought was madness; stirred the fiend within me- not I, but she [Justine Moritz], shall suffer; the murder I have committed because I am forever robbed of all that she could give me, shall atone… I bent over her and placed the portrait securely in one of the folds of her dress”(Shelley 103).

It is clear that the witches are the only true villain, because only they were the main cause for all of Macbeth’s murders. Not only is it clear in the play, but if you look at the background knowledge surrounding the play, you would know it was written for King James of England, who was very persistent in capturing and prosecuting “witches” , so Shakespeare had made the three witches the villains to give himself a good image with the king. This is why the witches are the true villains, because they had planted murderous thoughts in Macbeth’s mind and then tricked him with illogical prophecies. With all this said, the witches’ absolute supernatural powers corrupted them

After given the title of Thane of Cawdor, Macbeth starts believing the prophecies made by the witches and “yield[s] to that suggestion [of killing the king] with horrid image.”(1.3) In addition to that, when Macbeth vacillates if he should “proceed no further in this business” because King Duncan “hath honored him of late,”(1.7) Lady Macbeth’s impact begins to show up; her agitation and goad consolidate Macbeth’s selfishness and desire of kingship that needs to be frantically achieved. Therefore, Macbeth murders King Duncan, which directly raises Banquo’s suspicion that he “played’st most foully for ’t.”(3.1) Banquo’s “wisdom that doth guide his valor to act in safety” makes Macbeth afraid of him and his son. Infinite suspicions between them suggest an obvious shift of their
While reading Macbeth, it starts to show how Macbeth gets into these situations. The conflicts he created all lead with his own ambition. An expectation was set in his head when the witches said he would become the king of Scotland. At this point of the play everything unravels dramatically.

The Tragedy of Macbeth is a play written by William Shakespeare.It was written sometime between 1599 and 1606, and was first performed in 1611. The play is about a warrior named Macbeth, and the crimes he commits to become a king, and his eventual downfall. Macbeth’s downfall is caused by the crimes he commits, as well as the lack of compassion that he feels towards his people.

Macbeth’s deterioration initiated with slaying Macduff’s family. By doing this, he only creates Macduff as an enemy who is now declaring revenge for his slaughtered family. When Macbeth commits this crime, it reveals that he is a tragic hero, in view of the fact that he continues performing disastrous deeds which only demolished his downfall. Upon following this, Macbeth’s epiphany, when he recognizes that the three witches had cleverly tricked him, was an exemplary point on how Macbeth is a tragic hero seeing that this individual finally becomes aware of the horrendous crimes he has accomplished in the play. In the following catharsis, Macbeth releases those emotion, “And be these juggling fiends no more believed,/that palter with us in a double sense,/that keep the word of promise to our ear,/and break it to our hope” (5,8,23-26).
Macbeth is hearing voices inside his head saying, “Macbeth does murder sleep”. He cannot actually kill sleep. In this personification, sleep is given a human-like quality. Because of his guiltiness, Macbeth is paranoid and the lunacy is invading his mind in every aspect.
