The tragedy of Macbeth solely depends on the supernatural, specifically, the witches in the opening scene of the play. Their prophecy led Macbeth and Banquo to believe their fate was set. Their fate may have been something completely different, but their belief in the supernatural led them to make decisions that led them to a different place. If people of that time had not believed that witches were real, or credible, Macbeth would not have considered their prophecies as truth for even

Why Does Macduff kill Macbeth? Macbeth being murdered by Macduff represents the finale of Macbeth. The murder itself marks the end of a long struggle for power between the good (Malcolm, Macduff), and the evil (Macbeth). Many events hinted to the reason for Macduff murdering Macbeth. The murder of Macbeth was an inevitable act that was bound to happen. One of these events was prophecy of the three sister witches. Throughout the whole novel, everything that they had prophesized, had

Lady Macbeth Is Worse Than Macbeth In my view, Lady Macbeth is far worse than Macbeth. Although they both think of murdering King Duncan as soon as they hear the witches prophecies, Macbeth thinks more about what he may or may not do, whereas Lady Macbeth immediately appeals to evil spirits to give her the strength to kill Duncan. When Macbeth first hears the prophecies, and when the first 2/3 of it comes true, he does think of killing the king, but also, towards the end of Act 1, Scene 3,

Macbeth, THE REASONS WHY MACBETH IS MORE GUILTY BY HIS ACTIONS THENLADY MACBETH IS BY HERS. - William Shakespeare Macbeth is a very exciting story containing all kinds of plots and murders. The characters that are killing and are planning murders are all very deceiving and treacherous. Two of the most dangerous criminals in this play are Lady Macbeth and her husband.

At the start of the play, Lady Macbeth seems to have a very strong character - almost stronger than Macbeth's - but by the end she is reduced to being afraid of the dark. At the beginning she is Macbeth's 'dearest partner of greatness', but at the end she is his 'fiend-like queen'. She has a lust for power, and it is her goading that leads Macbeth to seize the throne of Scotland by murdering Duncan. Lady Macbeth is unable, however, to confront the evil she has unleashed and is driven mad

The downfall of Macbeth was a great tragedy. He knew it was not right to kill the king, but he felt he had no other choice. He was trapped into doing wrong. Lady Macbeth gave him the evil ideas throughout the play. She was his driving force. Without her, Macbeth wouldn’t have done what he did. Therefore, Lady Macbeth is as much of a main character as Macbeth is. Macbeth says, “Stars, hide your fires; Let not light see my black and deep desires”(1.4.57-58). Here he is expressing

The Witches are responsible for what happens to Macbeth Although Macbeth does take actions that lead to his downfall, I believe that he is not totally responsible for what happens. Although he takes the action that leads to his downfall, he perhaps would not have done this if the witches had not told him that he would be king in Act 1 Scene 3. I believe that it is the witches are more responsible for Macbeth's downfall than he is. In Act 1, Scene 3, the witches tell Macbeth that he is thane
