Well, throughout the play you see Lady Macbeth who is the catalyst and pushing Macbeth to commit many treacherous acts so in that way she seems like the villain as she commits villainous deeds. Macbeth was originally influenced by Lady Macbeth into committing various murders as she kept him motivated in the actual deed and is almost solely responsible for planning the particulars of the murder (drugging the guards and planting the blood-stained daggers on them), Macbeth never wanted the world of so much power and so did not really know what to do while he was confused and scared. It was no different than a mother convincing her child to kill for her ,the evil tendencies in her gave her
William Shakespeare's Macbeth, is a Medieval story about a nobleman who had evil ambitions of becoming the King of Scotland.

MMacbeth Vs Brutus Macbeth and Brutus are the tragic heroes in the plays Macbeth and Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare. Both of them murder their ruler and have tragic flaws. In Julius Caesar, Brutus helps the conspiracy assassinate the Roman leader, Julius Caesar because he is afraid that Caesar might misuse his power, but later realizes that the murder was not essential. Macbeth murders the King Duncan of Scotland in order to become the king himself. Both characters show signs of guilty conscience later in the play and eventually die for their tragic flaws.
And so, to make sure that Macbeth will do what she want, she will manipulate him, but she just believes that she is going to enable him to reach his potential, as shown in lines 25-28. Lady Macbeth also calls upon evil spirits to help with the murder during the scene. This shows us that she has very little faith in her husband. When Macbeth arrives at the castle, Lady Macbeth begins to try and persuade him to kill King Duncan. By Act One, Scene Seven, Lady Macbeth had convinced her husband to kill the King.
This is shown, also, when Macbeth begins to keep his wife out from his life. He begins killing and ordering murders without informing her, and she feels that she has a right to know. After all, she is the one who assisted him in the murder of King Duncan. “Macbeth’s self-centered ambitions and desires prevent
Electra fights with her mother, Clytemnestra, and her mother’s lover, Aegisthus, because she feels betrayed by them as they killed her father. When Electra and Orestes are finally reunited, they plot against their fathers killers, and finally kill them. The play has several themes, such as vengeance and deception which are extenuated by the heightened realism style of the play. In Electra’s introductory speech, I would emphasises her agony of her father’s death, as this is the main reason the character is vengeful. To fit with the heightened realism of the play, I would exaggerate the mental pain that the character is going through by associating some lines with physical pain, such as ‘But my mother, and her bed mate Aegisthus, Split open his head with a murderous axe’.
This conflict within Hamlet is further expounded by the possibility that his father was murdered by his uncle, King Cladius. In an attempt to cope with the moral weakness of his mother, Prince Hamlet dispels any sympathetic feelings toward women causing him to ruin his relationship with Ophelia and leaving him lonely. In order to accurately interpret Shakespeare’s usage of a female’s role throughout his play it is imperative to consider the greater source of his ideas-his historical background. The historical period of the Elizabethan era influenced Shakespeare’s negative portrayal of women and thus, he uses the women in his play as tools in unraveling Prince Hamlet. In Hamlet, it can be noted that the patriarchal setup of society mirrors that of England during the Elizabethan era.
It can be argued that Lady Macbeth is the true butcher; she is the person who persuades Macbeth to kill Duncan. Macbeth’s conscience tells him not to kill the King, he actually attempts to stand up to Lady Macbeth but she uses interrogative language to belittle him. Lady Macbeth’s overpowering traits at the beginning of the play would have been seen as very unusual to an audience watching at the time it was written as females were usually dominated by their husbands. This is effective in the play because it shows how weak Macbeth was at the start of the play and shows how their personalities change after killing King Duncan; Lady Macbeth becomes
This is explanatory true because the tragedy is of course the falling action of when Oedipus finds out that he has killed his father and married his mother and wants to kill his mother for giving him up, he eventually kills himself and his mother commits suicide, therefore the tragedy of losing many noble people. The form of destiny is the conflicts of Laius and Jocasta having a son that will soon kill Laius; it is Oedipus’s destiny so to say to kill his father Laius. The essay continues to say, “Oedipus destiny moves us (the readers) only because it might have been ours” (1001-1002). In this statement, what is to believe to be said is
In this play, Oedipus unknowingly fulfilled a prophecy saying that he would kill his father and marry his mother, which also brought disaster on his city and triggered his downfall. Whereas Macbeth, was an Elizabethan play written by William Shakespeare and depicted the tragic hero, Macbeth.

He, different from Oedipus, willingly fulfills his prophecies to obtain the power the witches foresee him earning. There are many similarities between Oedipus and Macbeth.
