Macbeth was contemplating the consequences of murdering Duncan and foresees his future of being overthrown by righteousness. He is worried that “This even-handed justice/ Commends th’ ingredience if our poisoned chalice/ To our own lips.” (1.7.10-12). Macbeth, at this point, have not been obsessed with lust for power. He raised self-awareness that the violence he used to wrongly proclaim himself king will be used to take vengeance against him. Such violence made him a “tyrant” and eventually killed by Macduff in anger of Macbeth’s crimes.
Othello has no evidence for believing desdemona slept with cassio. Iago 's acts of lying and murder manutplated othello 's thoughts into thinking the love of his life turned into a monster. Becausiago had a clean reputation no one expected him to lie, making his word seem like the truth. Iago 's words tricked othello into his downfall which involved killing his love and then himself. This shows the theme that words can influence others
This quote takes place when king Duncan is staying with the Macbeth’s as they are planning to kill king Duncan. Macbeth is unsure about killing Duncan and doesn’t want to do it so Lady Macbeth says, “When you durst do it, then you were a man;/ And to be more than what you were, you would. Be so much more the man” (1.7.56-58). In this quote Lady Macbeth is making fun of Macbeth for not wanting to kill Duncan. She questions his manhood and says that he will be more of a man and a better man if he committed the murder.
“Stars, hide your fires; Let not light see my black and deep desires”(I, 4, 52-53) This is exactly what the stars did in Macbeth by William Shakespeare. Macbeth wanted Happiness in his life, but to get that he used moral sacrifices that led to his demise and no purpose of living. This is demonstrated in the dagger speech and the Tomorrow speech that will be discussed showing his ambition for power and happiness to his demise. In the dagger speech (II, 1, 33-64) William Shakespeare conveys the message that Macbeth’s ambition overrides his morals to accomplish what he wants and what he thinks will give him happiness. In lines 33-41 of the dagger speech, it portrays the message that Macbeth’s guilt is tearing him apart from the thought of what
The Thane of King Duncan, Macbeth hears a prophecy that he himself will become king later on in the future after King Duncan. This then leads to Macbeth being overcome by greed. Since Macbeth greeds to be king so bad, he murders King Duncan and takes his place of the throne. Macbeth starts to live with so much guilt and fear that he commits even more murders to have his power safe. Macbeth is so confident in the prophecies that his life comes to a downfall and he gets killed by the people he did wrong.
Hamlet does delay his task to avenge his father but, he does at the right time and he does it properly. Before killing Hamlet needs to confirm if Claudius is a murderer and if he can trust a ghost. In the beginning of the play, Hamlet is told by the ghost of his father that Claudius killed him, shortly after the ghost tells Hamlet to avenge his father’s death. Hamlet believes the ghost and considers killing Claudius but, Hamlet double checks himself to make sure Claudius actually did kill the king by exposing his guilt after he sees a play similar to Claudius’ situation. This all is to make sure that Claudius actually killed
He recognizes that he has murdered his own brother, taking his throne, and then marries his brother’s wife. Nevertheless, he will not amend with himself or God, because he doesn’t want to give up what he has gained by his sin. For Example, as he mentions “Forgive me my foul murder? That cannot be, since I am still possessed of those effects for which I did the murder: My crown, mine
I think that because, at the end he got his revenge and killed him, it might’ve took a long time to do it and it did cost people’s lives, but he got his revenge. In document F it says, “For God only can take vengeance of the sole,” In document e, it says, that Claudius, started praying because he knew that hamlet knows about his murder. At the end of his prayer he says, “My words fly up, my thoughts remain below: Words without thoughts never to heaven go.” In document A, it says that the killing of Claudius is justified because, Claudius lied about killing the old king, Claudius also stole his brother’s wife, life, and his crown. The ghost of the king said, “The serpent that did sting thy father’s life Now wears his crown.” To hamlets face. I believe that hamlets actions were not justified but one is, because revenge isn’t a good thing, but Claudius is not just a murderer he is a stealer too.
He quickly learned about his bright future as the Thane of Cawdor and eventually receiving the title of king. His hunger for power forced him to follow through with regretful things throughout the play and switch to a murderous individual. Macbeth no longer showed loyalty to the King. He started his murder streak with the killing of Duncan. At first, he second guessed the bloody murder of his king.
Although he was hesitant to eliminate the king he pushed himself to go through with the deed. In this drama was basically envisioning the dagger he was suppose to use to kill Duncan. In Act II Macbeth states the following… “I go and it’s done: the bell invites me. Hear it is not Duncan, for it is a knell that summons thee to heaven or to hell.” (scn I ln 62-64). Also further along in the passage when Macbeth felt like Banquo might become a threat to his innocents and tell someone what the witches had prophesied to them he talked two murders into killing Banquo in Act III Macbeth said “have you considered of my speeches?
