This use of dramatic irony shows that though the crown should show authority, when Macbeth wears the crown it displays deception. Malcolm, however, is someone who will not hide behind the crown and who deserves to hear the call of his people saying “hail, King of Scotland” (5.9.27). By killing Macbeth, Macduff brings the crown back to the royal bloodline, and the crown again means authority and respect. Though the crown makes Macbeth appear to be the rightful king, the reality of his guilt hinders him from enjoying the power and leads to his
He wants to get Macduff to come back to Scotland and fight Macbeth. Macduff says, “Let us rather Hold fast the mortal sword, and like good men Bestride our down-fall’n birthdom” (Act IV, scene 3, l. 2-4). Macduff knows wrong from right and he knows that Macbeth shouldn’t be crowned. He wants Malcolm to be crowned king because he isn’t selfish like Macbeth is. Macbeth only wants the crown to himself and that’s what makes Macduff and Macbeth different.
Macbeth deeply regrets his murder of Duncan because he realizes that Banqos stratagem is so superior that he will have to make no sacrifices to ensure his son’s kingship, while Macbeth had to endure so much pain only to gain an unfruitful kingship. Macbeth was forced to go against his moral code, suffering so much from regret to gain his short kingship, but because of his fear of Banqo’s abilities, he is worried that Banqo’s son will be able to easily attain the throne. He remarks on Banqo’s abilities that he “hath the wisdom that doth guide his valor to act in safety.” (58-59) Macbeth knows that Banqo is not so irrational and risky as Macbeth, and that his logical and rational thinking will lead him to not take so many risks while also ensuring his sons kingship. Macbeth risked imprisonment
This connected to the thesis because here Macbeth didn’t know about his fate before the war. So all he know is protecting the kingdom from invader and rebel, he only know how to do his job as a general. He didn’t thought of killing other to get promoted or rewarded by the king. And because of the prophecies, he did something he can’t ever return from. In Act 2, Macbeth kill king Duncan for the throne.

He has become more closed to Horatio and keeps to himself and Beth. Mac's grandfather Duncan had just been murdered, and Mac was more concerned with the Highland Games and how he would win the competition. Horatio started to notice Mac's lack of emotion for the death as well as the fact that Banks, Mac's cousin, had just lost his chance of going to college. After the Hells Piper clan told Horatio of Mac being the one to sabotage Banks, Horatio knew Mac had really changed. Horatio confirms the sabotage by asking Mac what Banks' prophecy was.
When trying to convince someone of something, “the mind is no match with the heart in persuasion; constitutionality is no match with compassion” (Everett Dirksen). Persuading someone into another opinion is difficult, and that difficulty reaches its maximum when trying to persuade someone into something like crime. Shakespeare’s play Macbeth, takes place in early modern Scotland, in which the main character Macbeth is told his future of being future king. However, in order to be future king, Macbeth must murder King Duncan and get away with it. Within the book, the characters use many rhetorical appeals that serve to deceive and persuade others in order to get what they want.
Ross’s shock at this information shows his personal values. He cannot believe that Duncan’s servants and own sons would murder him because it goes against the natural order. His disgust at this reveals that he believes strongly in the social hierarchy where everyone should be righteous, honorable, and devoted to their king. Malcolm and Donalbain’s supposed parricide does not coincide with the idea of “nature.” Ross’s thoughts on Duncan’s death is shown through his mentioning of nature. Ross’s use and opinion of nature differs greatly than that of Macbeth and Lady Macbeth.
In Macbeth’s soliloquy, he talks about Banquo’s “hath of wisdom” and how Banquo acts safely(58). This illustrates that Macbeth is afraid of what Banquo might do. This illustrates Macbeth’s ambition because he is not going to give up until he finds what he is looking for if he gets suspicious with Macbeth. This makes Macbeth very scared of Banquo because if Banquo finds out that Macbeth killed Duncan, Macbeth’s life is going to be hell and Banquo is immediately going to tell everybody in Scotland. Macbeth fears Banquo so much that he will “champion his utterance” and will battle anybody to keep his crown(77).
Greed and betrayal, three men seek the truth. In The Tragedy of Macbeth. The characters Macduff,Banquo,and Macbeth were similar and not but, they all played a huge role.

Malcolm has to be like his Father Duncan and be the king that everyone trusted and loved. First Malcolm has to calm everyone down. He has to stop people from fleeing the country. He has to somehow tell the people of Scotland that since he is now the new king that no one has to worry that they will be hurt.

Creon is Shocked with the deaths of his wife and son and says, “Oh no, another, a second loss to break of heart. What next, what fate still waits for me? I just held my son in my arms and now, look, a new corpse rising before my eyes- wretched, helpless mother-O my son.” (Sophocles 1420-25). Creon begins to see how his pride lead him to this and sees how it could affect even more and starts to wonder what else his actions will do to him. The decision to punish Antigone he sees was not worth the death of his family.
For example, when the witches notify Macbeth that he will gain a new title, they are simply telling him of the fact and are not prompting him to act upon it (Rahman and Tajuddin 138). In spite of that, he instantly conjures up an image in his head of himself killing King Duncan in order to get the position of the King, and subtly questions if his thoughts are against his own morals (Mac I.iii.130-137). This thought is not the witches’ fault, but if they never told Macbeth of his imminent future, he would not think this way. Macbeth’s murderous thought of Duncan lets readers see that Macbeth has a lust for power, which ultimately leads to the tragedy (Kesur 5561). In addition, the witches’ apparitions also play a slight part in Macbeth’s decision making.
Outside King Edward 's castle, Malcolm talks with Macduff, letting him know that he doesn 't believe him since he has left his family in Scotland and may be furtively living up to expectations for Macbeth.

At in the first place, Macduff graciously can 't help contradicting his future ruler, however in the end Macduff can 't keep himself from shouting out, "O Scotland, Scotland!" (4.3.101).
