In The Tragedy of Macbeth, William Shakespeare demonstrates the build of guilt and remorse that Macbeth and his Queen begin to develop, consequently aids and foreshadows their demise. Shakespeare uses a wide variety of imagery to emphasize how guilt affects Macbeth’s life. Also, throughout the play, multiple pieces of evidence are displayed to prove how Macbeth and Lady Macbeth both change drastically from the beginning to the end of this piece. Finally, towards the end of the play, Macbeth finally comes to terms with himself and his devious actions, thus restoring his old mentality. Guilt is a factor of human nature and touches just about everyone at some point.
She deliberately raises Estella to be the tool of her revenge, training her beautiful ward to break men’s hearts. 1.

Macbeth realizes that in order to hold his position as a king, he has to continue eliminates people who may potentially stand in his way and claim the throne. By the end of play, Macbeth does not hesitate in taking the life of another to suit his purpose. Macbeth says, "Seize upon Fife; give to th' edge o' th' sword/His wife, his babes, and all unfortunate souls/That trace him in his line" (Macbeth Act IV,1.172-174). As well, Greed leads man aspects to madness. Greed in Scarface is what Tony exudes in order to satisfy his desire to rule the world.
‘Immediately we do exile him hence.’ Shakespeare has used the words ‘exile’ to define the banishment as a very bad punishment and the word ‘immediately’ to illustrate that he has done something so bad that he has to leave the country-Verona straight away. Shakespeare ended the scene in a tragedy to make Act 3 Scene 1 exciting and dramatic for the audience because he wants to make the audience want to find out what is going to happen to Romeo. Shakespeare ended the scene with Romeo the main character to leave Verona to leave the audience with tense and shock at the end of Act 3 Scene
Once the servant has gone, Macbeth begins a soliloquy. He muses on the subject of Banquo, reflecting that his old friend is the only man in Scotland whom he fears. He notes that if the witches’ prophecy is true, his will be a “fruitless crown,” by which he means that he will not have an heir (3.1.62). The murder of Duncan, which weighs so heavily on his conscience, may have simply cleared the way for Banquo’s sons to overthrow Macbeth’s own family. The servant reenters with Macbeth’s two visitors.
Comparing and contrasting Macbeth and Havisham Both utilise dramatic monologues to present inner workings of the characters there by allowing the reader an opportunity to witness the loss of humanity. Shakespeare uses the monologue in act 2 scene 1 to show how Macbeth is a person who can rationalise and reason but becomes dark and deceitful. He appears to be a man who is rational and logical with the questions asking “is this…dagger…I see before me…toward my hand?” “Art thou not…sensible…as to sight?” reflecting that he has the ability to reason. Macbeth transforms into someone requesting evil to “hear not my step” presenting us with the fact that he is asking for support to be inhumane. Duffy structures the poem like a monologue so the reader can track Havisham’s descent into inhumanity, as she descends further into madness.
Include the scene and the image along with your response Act 5, Scene 1 Out, damned spot! Out, I say!—One: two: Why, then, ‘tis time to do’t—Hell is murky!— Fie, my lord, fie! A soldier, and afeard?

I chose this image and scene because it shows Lady Macbeth seeing a spot of blood on her hand that represents the murder and crimes that she has committed.
93). His use of the world “false” is likely to be interpreted to mean his entire life and not just the face he is putting on as a murderer. After Macbeth murders Duncan, he tells Lady Macbeth that he feels as though he has murdered sleep. This seems to be a strange idea, but he explains to Lady Macbeth that sleep, for him, was lost when he murdered Duncan: “Methought I heard a voice cry “Sleep no more!/Macbeth does Murder sleep,” (2.2. 43-44).
In scene 1 act 7, Macbeth leaves the table and attempts to talk himself out of killing Duncan. Macbeth gives himself many logical reasons as why not to commit the murder, such as Duncan just gave him a promotion, why kill the man who just promoted you. But then Macbeth states that if he knew he wouldn’t get caught then he would do it. Then, Lady Macbeth enters the scene, and this is where the murder plan materializes. Lady Macbeth challenges him, saying that he is not a man.
A powerful ambition for power caused him to make sinister decisions that created for him only despair, guilt, and madness. At the end of the play he was no longer honourable and, instead, a tyrant. Meanwhile Faustus loses his entire academic prowess and ultimately is pulled into hell by the choices he made to go against God, his conscience and Nature. Macbeth has an immediate consequence of his actions and that is his death in the plays final scene. Throughout the course of the play we see how he changes from ‘Valour’s minion’ to his death and a ‘Butcher’.
