Pushed by the idea that he could be king, his growing ambition and misguided confidence in the prophecies makes Macbeth starts to ignore his conscious. After he is crowned king, Macbeth changes for the worse. He would turn into an evil, brutal killing man with no sense of morals. From the beginning to the end, it’s as if Macbeth has changed in character completely. The actions he took from killing Banquo, then having Lady Macduff and her children murdered, shows the insecurity that was present in Macbeth.

The devil, or the evil spirits, take up many disguises, one of which is through Lady Macbeth. Our tragic hero does not realize that every murder will come back to haunt him. We begin to see the slippery slope Macbeth slides down as he promptly kills his best friend, Banquo, and attempts to murder Banquo’s only child, Fleance, without any outside influences. He was content killing his closest ally because he worries about the witches prophecy that “the seeds of Banquo’s kings, rather than so, come fate into the list, and champion me to the utterance…” (III.I.70-73). Even when you believe Macbeth cannot be any worse he slaughters Macduff’s entire family when he hears Macduff has fled to England; he said that he would “give to the edge o’the sword his wife, babes, and all unfortunate souls that trace him in his line”.

The second of the circumstances is Lady Macbeth. Lady Macbeth, at first, skillfully pushes Macbeth to murder Duncan by mocking him "Was the hope drunk; Wherein you dressed yourself? ", doubting his love for her "Such I account thy love," accusing him of cowardice "And live a coward". She finally convinced him by pointing out how easy it would be "When Duncan is asleep".
