The Murderous King

Who is to Blame?

It's quite obvious that the witches took part in Macbeth's downfall. Before Macbeth met the witches he was a nice, loyal knight. Even his wife wasn't crazy in the beginning, but after the witches showed up everything went crazy. The witches foreshadow that Macbeth would be thane of Cawdor,"All hail, Macbeth! Hail to thee, Thane of Cawdor!"(Shakespeare 17) and then he would be king. After the witches go away, 2 people come up to Macbeth and tell him he is the Thane of Cawdor. Macbeth is shocked and believes he will soon be king. Macbeth sends a letter to his wife, telling her that he will be king. This makes her crazy, and tell Macbeth to kill the king, Duncan. Macbeth decides not to kill Duncan for the throne, "We will proceed no further in this business. He hath honored me of late..."(Shakespeare 43). However his wife forces him to kill the king. Macbeth, after killing Duncan, is announced king. Macbeth and his wife have a snowball effect of insanity. Macbeth kills a few more people, and lady Macbeth later dies from insanity. An army comes to kill Macbeth. Macbeth thinks he is invincible to the army out side his castle, for he was told he would not die from a man born of woman, "Macbeth kills young Siward, which restores his belief that he cannot be killed by any man born of a woman"(Shakespeare 175). Macbeth later is killed by one of the soldiers, because the soldier's mom had a C-section. So who is to blame? Why I thinks it's quite clear. The Witches are the cause of Macbeth's downfall.

Macbeth, or the forest, was once a great warrior. This forest was also once great and beautiful. The witches are the people who started the fire, burning the forest to ashes.
The fire represents the downfall of Macbeth. Once the fire was started Macbeth couldn't do anything. The theme of Macbeth is the destruction of beauty, "I have done the deed. Didst thou not hear a noise?"(Shakespeare 53).

The Once-ler was a good guy with a good intention, but when his family arrived he was corrupted. The Once-ler got famous and rich and was too caught up in the moment to realize the damage he was doing to the land, and every one in it. The Lorax had enough and talked to the Once-ler; however, it was too late the last tree was cut down. Macbeth also was a good guy but was corrupted by the witches. However, Macbeth was too excited to be king that he killed for the throne, and anyone else in his way. He lost: one of his best friends, his wife, his respect from others, and even his own life. Macbeth had a desire for the throne, the Once-ler had a desire for fame and fortune. Macbeth is a tragic hero, he made the mistake of following the witches, causing his downfall, "This supernatural cannot be ill; cannot be good. If ill, Why hath it given me earnest of success, Commencing in a truth? I am Thane of Cawdor"(Shakespeare 23).
