Who do you think made Macbeth go crazy? By MacKinley Clark
- Foil- "Yet it was said it should not stand in thy posterity, but that myself should be the root and father of many kings"(Act 3 Scene 1). This is explaining how Banquo is feeling suspicious about Macbeth murdering the King and decides to rub it in his face that Macbeth's family will not live long on the throne. This is Macbeth fighting with Banquo.
- Tragedy- "I will not yield, to kiss the ground before young Malcolm's feet and to be baited with the rabble's curse"(Act 5 Scene 8). Macbeth decides to fight Malcolm to the death and he ends up losing.
- Dynamic Character- "There's one did laugh in's sleep, and one cried 'Murder!' They did wake each other. I stood and heard them. But they did say their prayers and addressed them again to sleep"(Act 2 Scene2). Macbeth is the dynamic character because he went from being a normal man to going crazy because he killed the king. The quote tells the part when Macbeth was explaining, to his wife, the voices he heard after he had killed the king. Which mad Lady Macbeth worry for her husband.
All of this was the doing of Lady Macbeth pushing Macbeth to kill the king and fulfill the prophecy. Once he killed the King he felt like he had to keep killing to stay in the throne. After that, he went on a killing spree and ended up not making it in the end.
