He can't perceive how anything he can accomplish for whatever remains of his life can present to him any joy or fulfillment. Macbeth took fate into his hands and killed the king so he could become king since the witches told him he will be king. This characterizes Macbeth as one who will do whatever it takes to achieve what he wants. Lady Macbeth (18) assuages Macbeth’s pain by conciliating him and telling him that he did the right thing. Macbeth is now (19) enthralled that he is king but something is still lingering in his head.
Macbeth feels threatened by Fleance after the witches told Banquo his prophecy, which was that he will have a line of kings. “Fleance, his son, that keeps him company, / Whose absence is no less material to me / Than is his father’s, must embrace the fate / Of that dark hour” (3.2.134-138). Macbeth wants to kill Fleance as he is a threat to Macbeth’s title. This relates to the theme because Macbeth decides to take action in order for the prophecy to be proven wrong, so he sends the murders out to kill Banquo and Fleance. Macbeth’s disillusionment is present as he gets caught up in the prophecy and does anything just to alter it.
In other words, not being upset by his father 's death would prove that his mother was stepping out on his dad. It 's only after he storms the castle with a band of armed men that he starts asking questions —unlike Hamlet, who asks a whole lot of questions before he finally gets around to avenging his father 's death. Here 's the funny thing, though: both of them end up dead, in exactly the same way, and at each other 's hands. So, is Laertes ' method really any better than Hamlet 's? It is clear that Hamlet is the winner in the cause that he actually get to stab and poison Claudius, which is his But toward the end of the play, he recognized his fault and ask for forgiveness.“ Lo, here I lie, never to rise again.
Finally Macbeth ambition and his evil action has repay mentally and physically. When all the thane is grouping up together to fight against Macbeth, in the castle of Macbeth has something painfully happen to Macbeth is Lady Macbeth has passed away. Macbeth said “she should die here after. There would be a time for such a word.”(5.5.19). This proves how miserable Macbeth is that he has to hidden his feeling toward her the war was about to happen soon.
He fears that Macduff poses a threat to him. “Beware Macduff, beware the game of fire. The power of man, for none born of woman, shall harm Macbeth.” So Macbeth plans to kill his wife and children to make him suffer. “He has kill'd me, mother Run away, I pray you!” (4:2,
As Claudius repents, Hamlet feels as though it's the best time to kill him until he says: And so ’a goes to Heaven; And so am I revenged. That would be scanned. A villain kills my father; and for that, I, his son, do this same villain send To heaven (3.3.73-78) Essentially, Hamlet wanted to murder Claudius because he was the Old King’s murderer. But, after he realized that Claudius was
In the entirety of the play Macbeth gains power by murdering his enemies and those who suspect him. This also ties into his downfall, if you hear the witches prophecies clearly you might be able to tell that they also predict that happening. Yet Macbeth blinded by power has overlooked this and is only looking to gain more strength and build on what he has already. “Thou hast it now: king, Cawdor, Glamis, all, As the weird women promised, and I fear Thou played’st most foully for ’t.”(act 3, scene 1, pg 1). Banquo’s suspicion evidently leads to his death as Macbeth has him murdered before the banquet.
The play of Hamlet by William Shakespeare is full of many acts of betrayal. One such of these acts is when Hamlet goes against the wishes of his father’s ghost and debates on whether or not he should kill Claudius. Not only this but he also is extremely cruel to his mother and hurts her feelings which were also against the wishes of the ghost.

Hamlet’s first act of betrayal against the ghost of his father is one that stretches throughout the entire book.

Macbeth 's blinded by his actions and all he cares about is protecting his seat for the crown ignoring all life around him. Macbeth ignores that Duncan is a humble king and that he should protect him.
The first murder of King Duncan only sealed Macbeth’s paranoia and served as a foundation for the murders of Banquo and Macduff’s family. After the first murder, Macbeth feels a colossal amount of guilt and shame. After the murder of Banquo, he feels that it is not enough since Fleance escaped, developing his guilt and shame of harming others into a fear for his own safety; a devastating degradation. However, during the assassination of Macduff’s family, Macbeth gives the command immediately without thought and without a trace of remorse after doing so. This thereby concludes his psychological downfall as he no longer feels guilty, ashamed, or fears
