Even Macbeth’s wife experienced excessive ambition and is the person who came up with the plan to kill the king and blame it
Banquo’s murder is next once Macbeth is scared that the truth could come out. Ambition has series consequences in the play: Macbeth is killed as a tyrant and Lady Macbeth commits suicide. Shakespeare does not give the characters the opportunity to enjoy what they have achieved; saying that it is better to achieve your goals fairly than to achieve them through corruption. Lady Macbeth expects a lot
The sixth commandment states that “You shall not murder”(Exodus.) In act 5 scene 2 of Othello there are an abundance of murders. Iago assassinates Roderigo when his realizes that he fooled Roderigo into thinking that Desdemona might have a love for him. Othello murders his own wife, Desdemona, when he lets the jealousy of the thought of Cassio and Desdemona having an affair together get to him. Iago kills Emilia once she realized how Iago manipulated her.
My thought, whose murder yet is but fantastical, Shakes so my single state of man" (I.iii.153- 55). Nonetheless, Lady Macbeth is found as though she is the steering wheel that drives her husband into committing the first awful deed. That is, by testing his manhood, Macbeth finds himself leaning towards the idea of killing his own King to achieve both of their ambitions of ruling Scotland. “--That is a step On which I must fall down, or else o'erleap, For in my way it lies.
Tybalt is the most to blame for the events that occur in Romeo and Juliet because he killed mercutio, which made Romeo want to avenge him, then it caused him to be sent away. The prince sees what’s going on and sends romeo away because he avenged his cousin, so he didn’t want to hurt him, but
Lady Macbeth also has a part to play as she is the driving force, who plotted and urged Macbeth into committing the hideous act. Lady Macbeth attacked qualities of Macbeth’s manhood, telling him when he commits the murder then he “[is] a man”. Shakespeare suggests that Macbeth lacks the strength of character, but through manipulation of his ambitions, he gains the strength to carry out the act. Straight after the murder of Duncan, Macbeth is shaken by what he has committed and says will all “great Neptune’s ocean, wash this blood/clean from my hands”, reveals that he is now regretting his decision and is making an attempt to get rid of the evidence. As a result, Macbeth is considerate about his
He is at first coerced by the Witches prophecy and his wife’s words into murdering King Duncan. He is riddled with guilt initially, but he undergoes a quick change in midst of the chaos that unfolds after the murder
Yet he is still infuriated because Macduff fled to get Malcolm and Donalbain to help him get rid of him. In reaction he sends murderers to kill Macduff’s family in act 4 scene 3. This was the start of his undoing. Macduff arrives to Malcolm and succeeds in convincing him to help him rid of Macbeth then the prophecies start to come true. Macduff is coming to kill Macbeth.
Macbeth's lust for power becomes blatantly obvious based upon his fears that "to be thus is nothing, but to be safely thus", prompting him to kill Banquo and make an attempt at his son, Fleance. To relieve himself of his insecurities, he manipulates two murderers to believe than Banquo is their "enemy" and the source of all of their problems, displaying his twisted nature. He does not, before the act is already committed, share news of the "deed of dreadful note" with his "dearest chuck", Lady Macbeth, proving he has made his face a "vizard to [his] heart" not only for the public, but also to his once-cohort. Macbeth's peers' opinion sinks so low that he is often merely referred to as a "tyrant" rather than by his name. He is not only a traitorous and cruel king, but the extent to which he is "unfit to govern" makes him "unfit to live" - deserving of death for how he has let down Scotland.
In act four of Shakespeare's "Macbeth" Macbeth murders most of a noble man's family out of impulse and paranoia. He suspected said nobleman of plotting against him, and much like the murder of his friend Banquo, he killed him before he got the chance. But this murder is not like the ones before it, this one is much more sinister. The man Macbeth suspected, Maduff, was suspect because he refused to show up to any events that Macbeth attended, and when Macbeth went to ask the witches they warned him Macduff was to be cautioned. This time Macbeth decides right away that Macduff must go.
At the scene of Romeo and Juliet’s death, Friar Lawrence confesses, “I am the greatest, able to do the least, yet most suspected, as the time and place doth make against me, of this direful murder. And here I stand, both to impeach and purge myself condemned and myself excused” (5.3.32-36). He explains that because he was there at the time of Romeo and Juliet’s death, he is suspected to have killed them. He should have been able to stop Juliet because he was there.
"Ambition is a very dangerous thing because either you achieve it and your life ends prematurely, or you don't, in which case your life is a constant source of disappointment" (Jeremy Clarkson). To avoid failure one must follow through extreme measures. In William Shakespeare's Macbeth and Guy de Maupassant's The Vendetta, this concept is demonstrated. The protagonist in Macbeth encounters the battle with himself and others to reach full sovereignty. And The Vendetta involves who feels the need to avenge against a former murderer.
Lady Macbeth, cruel wife of Macbeth, assisted in the murder of King Duncan and his servants. She is a violently ambitious and manipulative woman, so much so that she thought up and planned the idea to kill King Duncan and convinced Macbeth to kill Duncan and his servants so that he could take Duncan’s place on the throne. Macbeth carried out with the deed, while the feeling of guilt invaded his mind almost compromising the plan, when Lady Macbeth stepped in and completed the plan mercilessly. As she finished the deed that Macbeth couldn’t carry out, (putting the daggers back with the servants), she compliments herself for being so brave and mentally stronger than some men.
Before Macbeth is completely dedicated to executing Duncan his confidence falters that is until Lady Macbeth voices her feelings "... I fear thy nature - it is too full o' the milk of human kindness to catch the nearest way". Lady Macbeth persuades Macbeth in to believing that unless he murders Duncan he will never be King. As a result, Macbeth does murder Duncan and many more after. It is apparent that Macbeth's flaw is his ambitiousness.
