Macbeth: Whose fault is it?
In William Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Macbeth, Macbeth is the main character of the play and ultimately has a downfall from being a brave moral human being to a tyrannical king that takes upon immorality rooting from the murder he commits of The king of Scotland, Duncan. Many can agree that there were a lot of individuals that can be blamed for what had occurred, but Macbeth’s ultimate destruction was caused by himself. Although Lady Macbeth was the first to come up and initiate the murder of duncan to attain the position of king for her husband, Macbeth still had a choice to go along with the murder or not. Another thought is that the witches curse was the cause of everything that happened. I believe that Macbeth could of just ignored the witches and remained loyal to both his king and what he stood up for. Even after Macbeth murders the king he quickly loses himself. The great loyal Macbeth turns into a dictator executing many other murders and anyone that he feels is against him. Not only did he continue to assassinate others but he felt no guilt in doing so, completely losing his morality. An example of this is when he killed his best friend Banquo due to his lack of loyalty and suspicious. In the beginning Macbeth was a loyal general and turned into a savage, paranoid of people crossing him. In the end Macbeth had a choice, and he chose to choose the evil route and all he can blame his himself.
The Wordle words represents all the reasons for Macbeth's downfall.
"O, full of scorpions is in my mind, dear wife!"
Macbeth's good and evil conscious are constantly battling over loyalty and greed of the crown
Upon my head they placed a fruitless crown And put a barren scepter in my grip, Thence to be wrenched with an unlineal hand, No son of mine succeeding. If ’t be so, For Banquo’s issue have I filed my mind.
At this point Macbeth decides that he is going to send men to kill Banquo and his son so they cannot take the crown away from him.
