Kings are higher on the chain that an everyday common man so when a common man kills a king the chain falls apart as turmoil infests nature. It all starts with Macbeth and her overwhelming aspirations to become queen. She calls upon the spirits to: “…unsex me…make thick my blood, stop up th’ access and passage to remorse, that no compunctious visiting of nature…” With that very quote you see turmoil starting to brew because by nature women are caring and filled with emotion. Here she is asking the spirits to “unsex” her, to make her more like a man so she is unable to care about the evil plan to convince her husband to kill King Duncan. You can tell that in the beginning Macbeth never wanted to kill Duncan; in act I witches come about and tell a prophesy that Macbeth will rule over Scotland, which puts the thought of killing Duncan in his head.
In William Shakespeare's tragedy, Macbeth, both the protagonist, Macbeth, and his wife, Lady Macbeth, had an ambition for power that superseded morals and ethics. For example, Lady Macbeth, upon hearing of the arrival of King Duncan to her household, designed a plan to assassinate King Duncan; if he is killed, Macbeth will become king and she will become queen. Both are willing to carry out the procedure in order to fulfill their goals and also, ignoring the law and the loss of human life. In addition, in order to sustain his reign, Macbeth eliminated any other threats; he killed his own friend(Banquo). His authority drove him mad; he started to kill the innocent like the family of Macduff for no reason.

"He's here in double trust: First, as I am his kinsman and his subjects, Strong both against the deed; then as his host, Who should against his murderer shut the door, Not bear the knife myself" (1.7.12-16) This is where Lady Macbeth comes into Macbeths fall. Because of Lady Macbeths strong will, she convinces Macbeth to kill Duncan so that he may become king. She becomes so obsessed about this crime that she even contiplats doing it herself. "Come, you spirits That tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here, And fill me from the crown to the toe top-full Of direst cruelty." (1.6.35-38) Her drive behind Macbeth drove him to kill Duncan.
Lady Macbeth on the other hand feels that Macbeth is being a coward and that he should think about what he is doing before he makes up his mind. Slowly throughout the scene Lady Macbeth convinces Macbeth that he should kill Duncan and he finally agrees. This goes to show that the relationship produces a sense of trust and openness. This is due to the fact that Macbeth listens to his wife and finally takes what she has to say into thought and carries through with it. Later, in Act 2 Scene 2 when once again Macbeth has decided that he is going to stop what he is doing although he had already killed Duncan; MACBETH.
As it dawns on him that it is only a figment of his imagination, he begins to worry that his guilty conscience and “heat-oppressed brain” (II.I.51) is making him see things. When Macbeth sees “dudgeon gouts of blood” (II.I.58) on the dagger, he decides that the dagger is an omen and that it means he should go along with the plan to kill Duncan. Shakespeare uses ominous and eerie images in the later part of the passage to show how Macbeth is getting seduced by the idea of killing Duncan, saying that “Nature seems dead and wicked dreams abuse the curtain’d sleep” (II.I.62). The allusions to evil people and practices in the passage suggest
Macbeth responds, in brief, as a loyal thane to the Scottish king, but the prospect unnerves him. * The audience could see Macbeth’s ambition leading him to cursed thoughts which has been greatly *enforced and twisted* by the* malicious* witches. *The caution from the first apparition causes Macbeth to start a bloody massacre across England, killing families of people who may threaten his position. After this point in the play, we see *that *Macbeth* has* turn*ed* into a ruthless tyrant* in the hope of avoiding fate*, so desensitized to humanity that even the suicide of his wife *could not arouse grief from him. * All he could muster was* “She should have died hereafter”.
Hamlet shows Gertrude that she has lowered her standards by marrying Claudius, When he refers to old Hamlet as, “A combination and a form indeed / Where every god did seem to set his seal” (3.4.55-61). This quotation shows what Hamlet saw in his father and how bitterly disappointed he is in his mother’s choice of lord. Hamlet’s frustration is made bigger due to Claudius’ unsympathetic remarks. Earlier in the play, King Claudius comments on the irrationality of Hamlet’s grief by saying, “That thus hath put him/ So much from th’ understanding of himself, I cannot dream of.” (2.2.8-10) The intensity of Hamlet’s grief may encourage others besides Claudius to be prejudiced towards treating him as insane. In the wake of his father’s death, Hamlet takes actions that other characters perceive as insane.
Much to the surprise of his mother, Hamlet began to berate her for her actions involving Claudius following King Hamlet’s death. He explains his chagrin towards her current demeanor, blasting away her attempts to calm him by saying that she “questions with a wicked tongue” (III, iv, 13). Given the fact that Gertrude completely glazed over her former husband’s death so quickly, going straight to Claudius, Hamlet is not barring his words. He remains stern and immovable, until the very second Polonius is alerted by the queen’s cry for help. “How now, a rat?
