So Macbeth has planned out Banquo 's murder and it turns very bloody as we can tell because of the twenty deep cuts. So this relates to the blood motif because of how Banquo got murdered and it relates another way because the way the murder is described. As the play develops we see Macbeth’s ambition take over and cause him to do very bad things. In this situation, it is deciding to murder Banquo to get rid of him. With that being said this quote relates to the theme of ambition because it was Macbeth 's ambition to become King and do whatever it takes to do so.
Macbeth’s first crime consisted of killing both the king and his guards. Next, he sends murderers to kill Banquo and Fleance. Although the murderers were directly responsible for killing Banquo, Macbeth is the true culprit for his loss of life. Macbeth’s guilt continues to haunt him and even takes the shape of Banquo’s ghost. At a dinner party that Macbeth is hosting, his guilty conscience catches up with him when he begins arguing with Banquo’s ghost.
Bolstered by the prophecy and his wife 's encouragement, he kills King Duncan in order to take the throne all for himself. As time goes on, his ambition grows and grows like blowing up a balloon, but everyone knows it will get to big and eventually … POP! All and all, Macbeth over ambitious attitude towards his life was the main cause of his downfall, which can be seen with the continuous emergence of blood and daggers, the occasional appearance of the three witches, and the fact that when Macbeth did wrong, nature seems to be out of order. In the Multiple Intelligence Project, the artistic choice to put a bloody dagger on one side of the scale was to symbolize Macbeth 's need to become powerful and how he will do anything to do so. This is evident after the murder of Duncan with Macbeth yelling at the top of his lungs, “Is this a dagger which I see before me, the handle toward my hand?
In a soliloquy he has before killing Duncan, Macbeth hallucinates a floating dagger in front of him, ultimately hinting to the reader that he is mentally unstable as he ponders for the last time whether killing Duncan is the right move. In another speech found later in the play, now as King, Macbeth becomes extremely ruthless, to the point that his wife’s death doesn’t even phase him. Going from a brave hero-like general, to a disturbed and ruthless King, Macbeth’s overall character drastically changes throughout the play.
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.
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.
The hired murderers kill Banquo but mistakenly allow Fleance to escape. At a celebratory banquet that night, Macbeth is thrown into a state of horror when the ghost of the murdered Banquo appears at the dining table. Again, his wife tries to strengthen Macbeth, but the strain is clearly beginning to show. The following day, Macbeth returns to the same Witches who initially foretold his destiny. This time, the Witches not only confirm that the sons of Banquo will rule in Scotland, but they also add a new prophecy: Macbeth will be invincible in battle until the time when the forest of Birnam moves towards his stronghold at Dunsinane and until he meets an enemy "not born of woman."
These scenes are arguably the most important in their stories and relates them closely together. In Hamlet, Claudius kills King Hamlet which upsets young Hamlet. After meeting his father 's ghost, Hamlet had to investigate further and see if his uncle is guilty. In Gladiator, Commodus kills Emperor Marcus his father because he was going to give the throne to Maximus. Maximus is very upset by this because he thought of Marcus as a father and decides not to honor Commodus as emperor.
As the play slowly progresses, everything appears to fall into place according to the three Witches’ prophesy. While all of these killing (this being King Duncan ad Banquo) are being ordered by Macbeth in a very hasty attempt to retain his power, everything is, as said before, slowly being moved into place. This hasty attempt to retain his power creates a atmosphere of greed and treachery. In the end, Macduff, therefor finishing the three Witches’ prophesy, slays Macbeth and brings about the crowning of Banquo’s son. This fate, as predicted by the Witches, has been brought around and to the end of the
