As soon as he commits his first murder he is overcome with grief. He is afraid of the blood on his hands. In this play blood obviously represents blood but also guilt. Macbeth can’t get over his guilt and begins to go almost mad. He is constantly worrying about who will be taking over what throne and trying to have them killed because he is so greedy and wants to rule.
His conscience still guilty from the murder he had committed. This feeling of guilt showing that Macbeth still had morals, as he did truly doubt the murder plan and had begun to have second thoughts on it. But even though he still felt guilt his power hungry ambition for absolute power was greater. He had even turned against his loyal partner, Banquo, as he was predicted to be the father of a long line of kings. Macbeth growing fear of losing power took over him and he sent murderers to kill Banquo and his son.
He connected with the audience by keeping them engaged. He was influential not only with his public speaking, but with propaganda. Hitler created propaganda that would influence the citizens of Germany to think that the Jews were inferior. Another way he used his influential attribute was by violence. When a fire started in the Reichstag building, Hitler used it as a way to start series of terrorist acts against politicians he considered enemies (“Hitler, Adolf”).
He was the leader of the Nazis and led the Germans into WW11 (1939-1945).During his “reign” Hitler definitely showed the Machiavellian principles of being a loved, feared and trustworthy leader who wasn’t afraid to act drastically and quickly. The Machiavellian philosophy of “it is best to be loved AND feared; if you can’t be both, then be feared.” applies to Adolf Hitler because he was both feared and loved. After WW1, Germany was in bad shape and when Hitler came and assured the people recovery, they could not refuse. In return Hitler brought down the unemployment in Germany from 7 million to only 1 million in 12 months. But Hitler knew how to maintain his leadership; he was feared by his enemies.
Furthermore, the murder of Banquo led Macbeth to destruction. Later in the play, Macbeth was troubled by the Banquo’s ghost. Macbeth acts out of desperation to get rid of Banquo’s ghost (III, iv, 82-7). Here, it shows Macbeth’s destruction of mind, which is fuelled by his fear and guilt. Eventually, Macbeth’s
Also, because of how much he valued power and wanted to become even more highly-ranked, he started following Palpatine’s orders even when they were very extreme and harmful towards the Jedi. Palpatine led Anakin to want to end the Jedi, so he could be the most powerful and so he could save Padme. All of this occured because of one poor choice that he made because he was impatient. Similarly, Oedipus made very reckless and impatient decisions throughout the play, where he, just like Anakin, though that he could escape the punishment. Most importantly, when he was confronted by Teiresias he completely ignored his words and reasoning.
By having Lady Macbeth be part of his plot to kill Banquo, Macbeth reveals two things about himself: That he does not value those around him, even if they are his loved ones, and that he places his personal success over all aspects of his life. He attempts to be deceitful to Banquo, revealing a fraudulence of Macbeth’s character. Shakespeare also includes this to apply to the real world, itself; that we should be skeptical of those around us, no matter how jovial those around us might
Later on in the play she and Macbeth are crowned to take over the throne to take the place of Duncan. She did not notice at first that she created a savage murderer by planning for him to become king. Towards the end of the play she realizes how immoral and wrong her decisions had been and she starts to hallucinate and see blood on her hands, which signifies that she knows she started the whole entire world of corruption. So before her sad, unfortunate end they—mainly the Doctor and Macbeth—realizes there is nothing to do for her because she’d became unstable and damaged. At the end we see her wistful suicide that explains how distressed she was from the whole
He is quite upset about this fact, but not upset enough to do anything. On the other hand, Lady Macbeth is red faced mad about this atrocity. Eventually, pushing his hand to kill the king through playing with his sense of masculinity. Once he kills the king his vaulting ambition just becomes more intense this causes him to almost become absolutely insane and commit terrible acts to climb to the top, and stay there. Fast forward a couple of days, after Macbeth has already became king his vaulting ambition to become the king has left one vital piece untouched.
“If chance will have me king, why chance may crown me, without my stir.” (143-144), he’s hoping he won’t have to do anything to gain the crown and that it will just naturally fall so he wouldn’t have to assassinate the king for it. Macbeth is trying to not have any association with the murderous thoughts in his
Unferth challenged Beowulf upon his arrival because he was jealous of anyone who attained fame and glory. Beowulf had also promised to rid Grendel, who had been tormenting Hart. It is possible to say that Unferth challenged him in such a belligerent way because Unferth himself was not able to defeat Grendel. His embarrassment of his failure is what prompts him to act so contentiously. Unferth’s challenge to Beowulf beckons the question in the reader’s mind if whether or not Beowulf will be able to defeat Grendel.
Macbeth knew that Banquo’s children would eventually inherit his throne. Having to cope with these feelings pushes Macbeth to create harsh feelings toward Banquo. When King Macbeth faced the children of Banquo, it hurt him inside. This feeling of hurt and harshness within the king brought him to realize that he will be childlessness for the rest of his life with no hope of having his own children. Banquo’s presence in my eyes hurt the king, causing him to commit actions that he would previously not attempt.
