At the beginning of the play Macbeth, the main character Macbeth learns that he will become King. When he realised he could be the leader, the power he desperately craves motivates him to alter his character. “Tis unnatural, Even like the deed that's done.” (2.4.6-14) The Old Man in the play says this after they found King Duncan brutally murdered. This proves that the death was unnatural and it was in fact a murder, a murder by Macbeth. The scottish general was not only out of character but absorbed by his lust of the throne, Macbeth’s yearning for authority was pushed by the witches
He engenders more pity. His agnorsis could be said to occur earlier, when he becomes aware of Lady Macbeths death. His understated reaction oculd indicate his complete exhaustion and defeat together with involuntary awareness and his commentss that life is nothing more than a "tale,told by an idiot signifying nothing." In the end of the play natural order and control is restored as Macbeth is killed and Malcolm, the rightful heir to the throne according to succession and order, is crowned king of Scotland. Shakespeare successfully warns and scares the audience against thinking about
Compelling her husband by giving him an ultimatum, be a coward or kill the king. Macbeth succumbs to evil and in doing so, betrays his King. You could argue that when he ‘wore the Thane of Cawdor’s robes’ he became a traitor like the Thane of Cawdor. His traitorous actions would have been met with death at that time. God's divine order is disturbed as Macbeth challenges God by killing the God appointed King and assuming the role for himself in his quest for power.
Macbeth began to turn evil when he decides to commit regicide on King Duncan, and all he could think about was finishing him off for good, when he said, “If it were done, when ’tis done, then ’twere well / it were done quickly” (Shakespeare 1.7.1-2). Macbeth’s mind was full of ambition to make his last prophecy of becoming King of Scotland come true, that instead of celebrating himself as Thane of Cawdor, he consumes himself with the witches and his ambitions that he became one of the nature of evil itself. Furthermore, Macbeth’s act of evil continues and became darker after he became King of Scotland. After becoming King, he went on a murdering rampage for those who got in his way of trying to strip him of his leadership, and that even meant killing his best friend Banquo and Banquo’s son Fleance. Before Banquo died, he spoke, “O, treachery!
Macbeth has a few fears about murdering the lord yet Lady Macbeth addresses his masculinity by letting him know that on the off chance that he was a genuine man, he would slaughter him. In the play, Macbeth says to himself, "The ruler of Cumberland! That is a stage I should either tumble down from or else jump over, for it lies in my way. "(Act 1 scene 4 Lines 55-57) Macbeth acknowledges he should get more power. He's not fulfilled by simply being the Thane.

Before murdering Duncan, Macbeth expresses doubt about killing his king through numerous soliloquies. Macbeth hallucinates a vision of a bloody dagger pointing him in the direction of the king, and interprets it as a sign to go through with the murder; however, he goes back on his word a moment later, doubting its significance: “Art thou not, fatal vision, sensible / To feeling as to sight? or art thou but / A dagger of the mind, a false creation, / Proceeding from the heat-oppressed brain?” (Shakespeare II. I. 36-39).

The ambition and pressure created by his wife leads him to taking action for himself: killing Duncan and taking the throne. Throughout the rest of the play, Macbeth goes insane and is filled with guilt and paranoia.
Macbeth on the other hand, is being cold hearted because he murdered Macduff’s family for revenge. Euphemism is the literary device being used here because I figured that this action was really harsh. In Act IV Scene iii, Macduff convinces Malcom to raise the army against Macbeth because he is a terrible king. While they are talking, Ross, Macduff’s cousin, enters.
