Power behind the Power William Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Macbeth is the story of a man who once was a hero but after he met The Weird Sisters he changed and everything that he was fighting for starting to go down. His name was Macbeth. The first apparitions made Macbeth greedy and gave him a necessity to do anything that was in his hands to become king. After Macbeth became king, they influenced him into thinking that he was invincible. This let him make for himself a safe security which would come back to haunt him, and at the end destroy him.
Macbeth is often read as a cautionary tale about the kind of destruction ambition can cause. Macbeth is a man that at first seems content to defend his king and country against treason and rebellion and yet, his desire for power plays a major role in the way he commits the heinous acts (with the constant push and bullying behavior from his wife of course). Once Macbeth had his little taste of power at the beginning of the play, he seems unable and unwilling to stop killing (men, women, and children alike) in order to maintain his position of power, gain greater power, and secure his eventual position on the throne. Selfishly, Macbeth puts his own desires before the good of his country until he is reduced to mere shell of a human being. Ambition is not Macbeth’s only fatal flaw, but it is certainly one of the most predominant ones.
