Macbeth bears the responsibility for the death of Duncan, his king, his kinsman and his guest. Macbeth was sucked in by ambition and fooled by his own conscience. Lady Macbeth may be a catalyst to Macbeth 's actions, but Macbeth is ultimately powered by his own ambitions and the prophecy of the witches. The witches ' prophecies have a powerful effect on Macbeth. Banquo asks him "why do you start and seem to fear Things that do sound so fair"(Act 1 Scene 1) .
In the play Macbeth, the Witches play a bigger role than one might expect. The Witches are temptations of evil and with the Witches’ mischief prey upon Macbeth’s ambition like puppeteers. The Witches give Macbeth numerous prophecies that are told to provoke Macbeth towards his doom. The prophecies give Macbeth thoughts of treason against the King, tells Macbeth to secure the kingdom from Banquo’s descendants, and give Macbeth the false courage that leads him to think he was invincible. If the Witches’ prophecies did not guide Macbeth, his life would not have led to tragedy.
What once thought to be a good idea for his own greed changes Macbeth 's life forever and gets him killed. Through out the story, characters expresses frequently with imagery of their emotion and state of mind.

The witches first played with that ambition at the beginning of the play. “All hail, Macbeth, the future king!” (A1 s3). This sentence caused Macbeth to question many things and ultimately kill Duncan. Macbeth had great ambition, however, he used it for the wrong things.

The witches in in act I called Macbeth Thane of Glamis and Thane of Cawdor. Macbeth was already Thane of Glamis and he had given the position of Thane of Cawdor but he didn’t know about it. Also the three sisters told Macbeth that we would be king. After hearing this prediction his mind got totally tempted to kill the king. His interpretation of what the witches said was that he needed to kill the king so he could become king.
