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tragedy, Macbeth, both the protagonist, Macbeth, and his wife, Lady Macbeth, had an ambition for power that superseded morals and ethics.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.
Madea is the wife of Jason, who was abandoned by him and left with no one because she was exiled from her original land. Madea shows that being betrayed by Jason she needs to get back at him by killing his wife and her kids eventually becoming criminally insane.

In the play Macbeth wants to be king and the dagger symbolises Macbeth’s penis. The dagger represents the desire of Macbeth killing Duncan, as the dagger and blood is pointing at Duncan.

The last example of symbolism is the chaotic scenes and reversal of nature which takes place after the murder of Duncan. At the time of Macbeth a common belief was that everything is as it is because god put it there.
He received three apparitions, but of two types: one that stated that he was going to be killed by Macduff, and two that stated that he should not be scared, because he is going to be killed by someone that is not woman born, and before that happens a forest of trees has to walk. In essence, Macbeth was influenced by the witches. It is not sure if they knew how to read someone’s mind, but they at least made educated guesses. They caused him to murder Duncan and become king. When Macbeth was on the throne, he became scared that someone is trying to put him down.
The blood was covering the walls and none of the characters wanted to enter the room. Eventually, the English soldiers kill MacBeth when they raid his castle and his evil wife, who stood by his side throughout all the tragedies, died as well. This proves Cooney’s thesis because MacBeth died a horrific death. In To Kill a Mockingbird, Lee uses the character Bob Ewell as an example to support her argument. She writes, [Mr. Ewell says] "I seen that black nigger yonder ruttin' on my Mayella!"
Right away she came up with the idea of killing the king. She talked Macbeth into stabbing the King that night and he did just this. Macbeth stabbed the king and came down worried that the soldiers surrounding him had woken. He still had the daggers in his hand and this was going to get him caught so Lady Macbeth took the daggers and placed them back by the king leaving both her and Macbeths hands bloody. Someone already found the king and yelled “MURDER” while the two were washing the blood from their hands.
