He would stop at nothing to gain the power. Macbeth had no remorse for who he had to kill because they stood in his way. His flaw lead him to his downfall. Macbeth was not fit to be a king with his ambitious mind set. When the witches told Macbeth about the future and him becoming king.
Another reason why he was a villain because he killed members of his family so that he would become the ultimate successor to the throne. This should never be how a king becomes the ruler of his kingdom, ever. Even though I believe that Alexander the Great is a villain, others may think he was a hero. They may think that because he had conquered so many other nations.
In the beginning, “When Lady Macbeth is trying to convince him to do the murderous deed,” Macbeth only becomes convinced to do it after, “she first impugns his courage” (Berquist, 111). But now, Macbeth is won’t even let her be apart of it and he is the one that convinces himself of his own wrongdoings. He tells her, “We have scorched the snake, not killed it,” meaning that they still have more to do to keep the throne, but he won’t tell her. Because of Lady Macbeth not having a part in Macbeth’s works of cruelty anymore, he is no longer being manipulated to do wrong, and he henceforth is no longer a tragic character.
In the passage, The Rattler, the writer uses explicit details and descriptions and scenery, in a way, to leave the reader both empathetic for the man and sympathetic for the snake. The writer uses explicit details to leave the reader empathetic for the man. Shortly after the man encounters the snake, it is revealed that he has never killed an animal and finds “no satisfaction in taking life”.

The hangman said he only had the chance to keep murdering people because nobody stood up and said something about it. It is ironic that the victim said nobody cried for me because when other people were getting hanged he didn’t say anything either. This leads to the bystander effect because the people of the town did not want to say anything since maybe someone else could have said
The author’s diction is a reflections of the superiority the man had over the self-defensive snake. When the man first saw the “ six-foot black snake thick as my wrist” and observed that “felt no necessity of getting out of anybody’s path” he felt the need to “show my intentions”. The snake was aware of his strength and wanted the man to know that. Therefore he didn 't feel the need to move for the stranger. Following their first encounter the man would “have been well content” to leave him alone because taking “life is a satisfaction I can’t feel” but knowing he has a farm to take care of, he had“ kill the snake”.
However, Jim Jones would not go like the rest so he had someone shoot him in the head. If he was not going to ever get out of Jonestown alive then nobody would. That attitude was selfish and horrific. The people of Jonestown did not have a choice on whether or not to drink the poison. Some of his people were so loyal to him that they did not think twice about it, while others could not escape so they were forced to kill themselves against their own will.
At the conclusion of this vivid literary work by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Dr. Grimesby Roylott dies after being bitten by a Swamp Adder, the most venomous snake in India. I believe that Sherlock Holmes was not accountable for the passing of Dr. Roylott and was entirely innocent. When Sherlock initially saw the deadly creature he knew he had to act swiftly and defend himself and Dr. Watson. Furthermore, Dr. Roylott knew the treacherous snake would return eventually; yet, he still sat in the chair which left him vulnerable. The most vital fact is that, how was Sherlock to know that Dr. Roylott was in a susceptible position in the next room?

Maybe Walton finally sees the monster because he gets lonely again after Victor dies and longs for someone else to talk to so he then imagines the monster since Victor disappeared from his imagination and all he wants is someone to talk to since he has no one. So not only is the creation a figment of Victor’s imagination but Victor and the whole story is a figment of Walton’s imagination.

The scene Act 3 scene 2, conveys the theme that killing someone isn't the most proficient way in dealing with problems nor does it make life simpler, instead it creates more complications. Ironically, In this scene Lady Macbeth and Macbeth discuss the death of Banquo; both of them begin to show signs of fear & guilt. Both of them realize the troubles that come with killing Banquo, and recognize that troubles follow; his son Fleance can still cease the prophecy.

William Shakespeare’s Macbeth is a five-act play that tells the tragic story of a Scottish nobleman. In the beginning of the drama, the main character, Macbeth, kills a traitor who was leading an army against Duncan, the King of Scotland.

Macbeth is a character that goes through significant change throughout the novel as a result of his own actions and, perhaps, fate.
