Macbeth was working toward being the king of Scotland in the beginning after meeting the three wired sisters. And being told that he was king to be, so it inspired him to do anything that he had to to become king. It did not matter the circumstances he would do it. Even if that meant killing his best friend. He down was cause by him killing Macduff’s family. Macduff come back to defeat Macbeth and give Malcom the crown that was to be his after his dad killed over. This tragedy could have be prevented by Macbeth never meeting the three witches in the first place would be the best way to solve it. But by running into them on his way home it made a headache for the town. It cause the lives of many and would have been more if he would have not overpowered by Macduff. This could have
Shakespeare's “Macbeth” a murderous story filled with greed, unchecked power, temptation, peer influence, and betrayal leads to quite the in depth and brutal story. “Macbeth” shares some of the big ideas in Sam Raimi’s “A Simple Plan.” Murder, how greed/temptation can corrupt, and peer influence.
A mix between being power hungry and selfishness can lead to destruction and mass chaos. Both Macbeth and Orenthal James Simpson, nicknamed “The Juice” displayed these traits, which later lead them to face their consequences. Macbeth killed to gain power for himself, and so did O.J Simpson. Both men were dominated by their power hungry and selfishness, which lead to the death of Macbeth and Nicole Brown. Macbeth and O.J Simpson show similar qualities such as power hungry, selfishness, and both were well trusted prior to the murders. In fact Macbeth had earned the title “Thane of Cawdor” and O.J Simpson had earned the Heisman Award for the University of Southern California. Unfortunately both of their achievements would mean nothing later on in life.
From honored soldier to murderous tyrant, Macbeth killed his way into power. He was informed of his “destiny” and stopped at nothing to achieve it. He had multiple chances to rethink his actions.

In Shakespeare’s play “Macbeth” Macbeth is seen to be as the one responsible for King Duncan’s murder, as Macbeth’s hands were the ones that actually killed King Duncan. However, while Macbeth may be thought of as ultimately responsible for his actions, but there are other influences that actually show on a closer inspection of the text, the three main influences to his decision are Lady Macbeth, himself, and the witches. This is (in my opinion) convincing evidence that Macbeth is completely responsible for the murder of King Duncan.
Disruption and criminality could be seen within the very first lines of the famous play by Shakespeare and towards the end as well. In this old Shakespearean play, Macbeth is a fierce warrior who receives the tittle known as the Thane of Cawdor by emerging victoriously from the battle of the Kingdom of Scotland. After this great battle, Macbeth encounters three unusual ladies who appear to be witches known as the Weird Sisters.

Macbeth and Pablo Escobar were two men who were driven by their ambition but this ambition eventually comes back to them leading them to their deaths. Shakespeare portrays this tragic hero in a unique way, he is a dynamic hero whom started as a good man until he became aware of his future. Once Macbeth meets with the witches and they tell him that he is going to become king, rather than letting fate lead the way he tries to rush his royalty. Pablo Escobar like Macbeth rushed his rise to power, when he was thought to have had the leader of the colombian cocaine trade killed in 1975. Pablo was able to become the number one drug trafficker in colombia and later the world. This caused him to have a lavish life with lots of money and even more
The play of Macbeth is one of the greatest pieces written in all of literature. William Shakespeare's “Macbeth” is about Macbeth, a Scottish General and thane of Cawdor, who runs across some witches who tell him about a prophecy that they have foreseen that he will become the next great King of Scotland.

Ambition and self-fulfilling prophecies two seemingly unrelated things that are actually intertwined with one another. Ambition is the thing that drives many people to do the things they love. Self-fulfilling prophecies are a direct result of ambition by the person subconsciously doing things to get their foreseen future. These things help the advancement of people’s lives.

In today’s society many people possess strong ambition when it comes to getting a job, following a passion and being immensely successful in life. Having an abundance of aspirations can have both successful and faulty outcomes depending on the situation and how individuals respond to the circumstance. For example, in the play **Macbeth written by Shakespeare, a prime example of an excessive amount of ambition is displayed through both Macbeth and Lady Macbeth’s actions. Essentially, Macbeth becomes power hungry and goes on a rampant killing spree that causes Lady Macbeth and Macbeth to be overcome with guilt.

Macbeth” is a tragedy written by Shakespeare. The story is played somewhere between 1600 and was performed for King James 1.It is a tragedy about a man’s fall. It could be suggested that macbeth is responsible for the death of king Duncan. According to my point of view, Macbeth didn’t killed Duncan , banquo and macduff 's family because he wanted to be evil because he met the witches .He did everything because of ambition, jealousy , lust for power and because he was power hungry from the beginning.

First off, Macbeth inevitably decided to kill Duncan. He may have been heavily influence, but he undoubtedly could have chosen not to and at times, he would contemplate whether he should or should not. The act of murdering Duncan sent him to a downward spiral. He ordered murderers to kill Banquo and Fleance. . While Fleance was able to escape, Banquo was not so lucky. The reason for his murder was because the witches say to Banquo that his sons will be king Macbeth is out of control, and it also led to his decision to kill Macduff’s family, as Macduff was considered a threat, having figured out his insanity. . By the end of the play, Macbeth is lost in a pit of state. The crimes he committed had desensitized him. He essentially became his own worst enemy from his downward spiral, which led to decisions he made on his
When Macbeth sent the murderers to kill Banquo, it was evil to do it for no reason, but it was good that he did not get told that he killed King Duncan. The author types,“The Murderers are street thugs. Some opportunities for comedy in early scenes, but should be downright terrifying in a fight. Hired hands who work as Macbeth 's personal assassins” (General OneFile 1). Instead of Macbeth killing Banquo, he hires murderers to kill him. Macbeth wanted Banquo dead because he did not want Banquo to be the one to say that he killed King Duncan. The author says, “He tries to defend his father when they are attacked but is not old enough or skilled enough. He just manages to escape with his own life” (General OneFile 1). When Banquo was killed, his son, Fleance, escaped before he was going to get killed. Macbeth sent the murderers to Fleance because he was with his father at that time. The role in the killing of Banquo showed a relationship between good and evil with
