Ah, how long ago that time seems to be, but yet it happened all so fast at the same time. I had started out as a hero! I killed the now deceased Thane of Cawdor, and succeeded him. I was celebrated and everyone loved me, the righteous hero that fought to thwart evil.. but when did I become the evil? When did I become tainted with these forbidden wants and desires?

I needed more information so I went to them and I get 3 new prophecies, but the most important of the 3: Macbeth shalt not fall til the woods of Birnam come to Dunsinane! At this point another prophecy was to fear Macduff, so in an effort to make sure he could not stop me, I committed a HORRIBLE act. Murdering his entire castle, including his family, and the worst part of this was, I was not fazed by what I had done, Next came today, the invasion day, Birnam Woods is coming to Dunsinane, my servant says.

(Month) 29, 1032 Dearest Banquo, Friend, while what I have done may seem back-stabbing I assure you, to betray your trust over minuscule would be foolish and immature. You simply cannot fathom the dangers of holding the position of King, especially after the way I acquired such power. After the witches told me what the possibilities, I knew I had to make sure I’d never lose this position. You and your son were a threat to me because of the prophecy told by the weird sisters. I’ve done no wrong, only seized and opportunity before I was stripped of it.

Elisama solis Mr Kennard 1A Lady Macbeth Sometimes we have to make some decisions to get what we want even though this decision makes you the evilest person in the world, on the play Macbeth from shakespeare we get to know two of the characters that are evil on their own way, as we go more into Macbeth we discover who is the more evil on the play. Lady Macbeth is more evil because she was the one that manipulates all the actions that Macbeth did, murder, betrayal , just to get him to be the king of Scotland, instead of telling him to do the right thing.
Evil can not always be seen and it leads to major problems. In the play Macbeth by William Shakespeare, evil is a predominant theme. Throughout Macbeth, Shakespeare leads the plot into dark scenes with the copious amounts of murder, witchcraft and evil desires of the characters. In the play, the character, Lady Macbeth hears the prophecy from three witches that her husband will be king. Quickly, she decided to take matters into her own hands; however, it ends up leading her husband, Macbeth, down a dark path of destruction.
Regardless, Lady Macbeth brought up an interesting topic if evil can really be taken away from a person. For her that was impossible, as Lady Macbeth’s guilt consumed her, and led to her downfall. Both Queen Cersei and Macbeth proved that their lust for power is a great enough drug to let evil take control over them. Nevertheless, evil is a destructive force that will bring down everyone involved, including the perpetrator. Once evil has crossed the line, forgiveness is almost out of the question.
The fact that Macbeth believes the witches’ prophecies are not evil nor good foreshadows how he will go on to kill any other person standing in his way to more power. His ambition blinds his mind to make him even think about ruthlessly committing a murder. This forceful way of gaining power will only lead Macbeth to become a “tyrant” in Scotland and his “fantastical” desires of killing Duncan and receiving the crown will lead Scotland to failure. Under Macbeth’s rule, Scotland seems to be in a terrible condition. With distrust among the people, there is tension all within the country, as Macbeth’s totalitarian regime had rendered the prosperity of Scotland.
So, what did Macbeth have to teach me as a person? Power should only be reserved for those that know its ins and outs. Sociocultural influences take a major toll on a person’s life and they need to question their own sense of rational with the accepted ideals, which may not always be reasonable. Personally, finding your own sense of identity and knowing your limits and strengths is something Macbeth lacked and this is what made him succumb to his vaulting ambition leading to death. Ultimately, Macbeth was influenced too much of an extent where his rationale effectively did not safeguard him from his unwise decisions - therefore one must consider the decisions in their life and consider the potential ramifications.
