In Act 5, Sc 3, Macbeth says, “I am sick at heart”. He also says, “my way of life is fall’n into the sear, the yellow leaf; and that which should accompany old age” by saying this it shows us that he has realised that even though he is now king, it is not worth what has happened to him, as a human being. He has no friends or family left, and his life is not worth living and even if he lives to see old age, he will still have a very unhappy life. In Act 5, Sc 5, Macbeth finds out Lady Macbeth has died, and in Act 5, Sc 8 he says, “Why should I play the Roman fool, and die on my own sword?” This shows us he thinks about committing suicide, but he then says why should he die from his own sword, and decides to fight and die on the battlefield, honourably. The play begins with Macbeth fighting like a true warrior on the battlefield, and it ends with him dying in combat.
