A critic has written that Macbeth wells up from a deep awareness of evil. This means that Macbeth, written by William Shakespeare, shows what evil really is and what it can do.

The Dead Butcher and the Fiend like Queen Does This Describe Macbeth and Lady Macbeth? I want to first split this into two parts Macbeth and Lady Macbeth. The Fiend Like Queen, I say that Lady Macbeth is defiantly a fiend, meaning evil, demon or devil because of what she had done mentally to Macbeth, she had got Macbeth to kill just to be king.

"Come, you spirits; That tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here…" In Macbeth, William Shakespeare writes this passage in order to tell us about the character of Lady Macbeth. Using only this line, we can almost determine Lady Macbeth's personality and her motives. Up to the point where this quote leaves off, we have not heard much of Lady Macbeth.

John Donne wrote the quote No man is an island , to show that no person can go through life without others successfully. This quote can be related to William Shakespeare's tragedy MacBeth. The character MacBeth was loyal to the king and a great worrier until he interacted with the Weird Sisters. They gave him three prophecies that changed his life.

MacBeth, the protagonist, in the play MacBeth by William Shakespeare was a dynamic character. He changed from an admired, loyal, courageous, loved man in the beginning to a tragic, jealous, selfish character in the end. MacBeth is both good and evil, even though he used more evil than good.
