Macbeth is a play written by William Shakespeare and it also consists of diverse themes. However, one theme that stands out the most is that one's ambition for power is a contribution to the dire consequences. Macbeth, the main character of the play, proves this to be true by taking his first step and murdering King Duncan after getting three prophecies. As he gets consumed by fear and guilt, he sends murderers to kill Banquo and his son, Fleance. In the same way, he also sends murderers to kill Macduff's family as a message to the Thane of Fife.
In conclusion, the idea that Macbeth is a work in which human feelings mix with enigma and mystery should be highlighted. The struggle between good and evil plays a very significant role in the success of Macbeth. In this case, the good would be Macbeth’s thoughts towards the murder of King Duncan, before when he thought as a loyal soldier would. The evil won and he became ambitious and oblivious to his actions just to end up dead, killed by Macduff as revenge for his family. The blood on every page of the play shows the guilt of Macbeth and how it drove him to the end, just for his
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.

He tries to save himself but still Macduff and others are suspicious of him.
Because Macbeth did not want Banquo’s prophecy of coming from a line of Kings, he orders men’s to kill Banquo but also Fleance too, for the reasons that if Banquo dies Fleance would become King, however, Fleance got away. One of Macbeth’s last killings was the most tragic of them all when he ordered his men’s to kill

Those cowardly notions symbolized as the imaginary dagger covered with blood (II. I, 50). However, his other assassinations were purely from his heart. We especially notice his greed when he plots to kill Banquo since Banquo’s offspring could be kings given by the witches.
She says he is “afeard” and that he is a “coward”, this presents the reader with the lady’s manipulative mindset, and opens up the idea of her being the culprit. Although making him think that he is only a man if he kills Duncan is an action to be reckoned with when looking at who is amiss, it is only the idea that leads to the action.
