The King announced “...For brave Macbeth…well he deserves that name…his brandished steel smoked with bloody execution.” This metaphor hints that Macbeth is a brave, heroic, merciless fighter; it also tells us that he has gained a good reputation, as he is receiving praise from the King. This ‘fame’ along with Lady Macbeth’s encouragement, brewed some cunning evil plans in his head. He wanted to kill King Duncan and frame the chamber guards for his murder, and ultimately, the kings very own sons, Malcolm and Donalbain. He did this so he could become even more powerful, and gain the title ‘King Macbeth.’ After Macbeth ‘takes the plunge’ and murders King Duncan, he is in a deep state of shock. He says “why do I yield to that suggestion, whose horrid image doth unfix my hair, and make my seated heart knock at my ribs.” He is revolted by his actions, and still can’t believe what he has done.

Daniel Wong Ms. Sikorski ENG-2D1 27 November, 2012 The Tragic Downfall of Macbeth When we first meet Macbeth in Shakespeare’s tragedy, Macbeth, he is presented as a brave and noble soldier of King Duncan’s army. We learn that, against the odds, Macbeth has led the king’s army not only against the opposition, but also against a traitor to Scotland, Macdonald. Ironically, upon gaining the trust, praise and title of Thane of Cawdor, Macbeth is tempted by the witches’ suggestions to also betray the king in order to succeed to his throne. Though the witches encourage him with their prophesies to move forward with his treacherous deeds and though his wife goads him for his lack of masculinity and ambition, it is ultimately Macbeth who chooses his fate and must accept blame for his defeat. Through analysis of Macbeth’s choices in the play, it is evident that his ruthless ambition, blind trust in the witches, cowardice towards his wife’s demands and overconfidence were the key faults that led to his demise.
The sixties made an impact on music that has yet to be forgotten and I doubt it ever will be. The most remembered band of the sixties is the Beatles. The Beatles defined that generation, putting to music what was going on in the world and their own lives. In 1964, the band made it’s debut in America on The Ed Sullivan Show. Just one month earlier, their first American record, I Want To Hold Your Hand, was number one on the charts and it stayed that way for 7 weeks.
“More is thy due than more than all can pay” (1.4.21). King Duncan says this to show how he is grateful of Macbeth for wining the war. As events unfold, Macbeth shows his true character when he kills Duncan to become king. This shows he has a false appearance because Duncan thought the two were friends and Macbeth would not kill a relative. Towards the end of the play Macbeth gets caught up in a killing spree by hiring people to murder Banquo and his son, and by having everybody in Macduff’s castle killed: The castle of Macduff I will surprise, Seize upon fife: give to th’ edge o’ th’ sword His wife, his babes, and all unfortunate
The character who entered the stage at the beginning is, in the eyes of the audience, completely different person from the character at the end of the first act. He transforms himself from a man of deep morality and honesty to one who is prepared to kill the sovereign king. Even before Macbeth himself appears on stage, he is discussed in admiring terms by the king and the king's eldest son 'Malcolm'. They speak of Macbeth in such glowing terms following his recent successes in the battlefield, whilst in the service of the King. In act I scene 2 a captain describes how Macbeth killed McDonald in battle.
* All he could muster was* “She should have died hereafter”. *As Malcolm commands his* army of soldiers,* sick of Macbeth’s reign march* towards Macbeth’s castle,* Macbeth, who has “almost forgot the taste of fears” realises the third apparitions is a half-truth, that Birnam woods is actually a large army of soldiers* using branches to hide their numbers. *Although Macbeth has become a ruthless murderer, he commands a certain amount of sympathy from the audience. Macbeth has been victimized by fate *which *pre-determines his tragic end*. * We disagree with how the witches, who enjoy the misfortune of others-“fair is foul, and
Macbeth is Responsible In Williams Shakespeare’s play Macbeth, there are many acts in which Macbeth proves that he is responsible for his own death. Macbeth is a tragedy involving the murder of multiple characters. Macduff physically murdered Macbeth; though Macbeth is responsible through his own actions. Macbeth believes the witches prophecies, and caves when Lady Macbeth pressures him to murder King Duncan. His own human nature, paranoia and selfishness are what leads him to his death.
MMacbeth Vs Brutus Macbeth and Brutus are the tragic heroes in the plays Macbeth and Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare. Both of them murder their ruler and have tragic flaws. In Julius Caesar, Brutus helps the conspiracy assassinate the Roman leader, Julius Caesar because he is afraid that Caesar might misuse his power, but later realizes that the murder was not essential. Macbeth murders the King Duncan of Scotland in order to become the king himself. Both characters show signs of guilty conscience later in the play and eventually die for their tragic flaws.
This is a reason as to why Macbeth would not qualify as a tragedy in Aristotle’s eyes. Due to the fact that Macbeth is overtaken by greed and the will for power, that he murders multiple people, he is not someone with an extreme amount of goodness in his heart. When Macbeth murdered the present King, Duncan, he approached his wife as saying. “I have done the deed. Didst thou not hear a noise?” (Act II, Scene II).
