The Downfall of Macbeth

In Shakespeare's play, Macbeth, Macbeth encounters three witches that predict he "Shalt be king hereafter" (Shakespeare act 1 scene 3). Macbeth writes Lady Macbeth about this event, and Lady Macbeth become greedy and wants to become a queen causing her want to do anything to receive the honor, at any cost. She creates a plan to kill the current king in order to receive the throne In the beginning of Macbeth. She tells him of the plan, and, at first, he agrees but when it is time for the deed he becomes nervous and unsure if he should go through with it. Because he was unsure he humors the idea of failure, but lady Macbeth says "We fail? Screw your courage to the sticking place. And we'll not fail." (Shakespeare act 1 scene 7) Macbeth chooses to go through with it and kills the king. After he does it, he regrets his decision and feels as if he can't live with himself afterwards. He begins hearing and seeing thing that aren't even there and Lady Macbeth thinks that acting like that is foolish. He also forgot to leave the dagger that he used to murder the king, but is too mortified to return so his wife volunteers to do it because her husband is in shock. Lady Macbeth thinks of her husband as a childish coward by saying "'Tis the eye of childhood that fears a painted devil." She perceives him as a scared child, scared of something that is harmless because he is terrified. Through out the book she is the one who is always pressuring him and pushing til the breaking point. I think she is the reason for his downfall because the entire time he didn't want to go through with it, but she practically forces him to kill Duncan.

Dynamic Character

At the beginning of the play lady Macbeth pushes herself and her husband to commit murder and kill Duncan. And afterwards she has no regrets and says "What is done is done," (Shakespeare act 3 scene 2). She isn't at all disgusted with their actions, but she later feels guilty and begin to act it out in her slumber and imagines cleaning her clothes of the blood.

Macbeth see the bloody dagger before him as he heads to kill Duncan and says "Is this a dagger which I see before me, The handle toward my hand?" Shakespeare act 2 scene 1) He can't help but be nervous. This vision foreshadows Macbeth continuing his murder spree. He didn't know what this murder would bring about in his life but it definitely brought about many worse deeds.

Macbeth's Downfall

Macbeth started as a great general,

But his ambitions got in the way of that,

His actions lead to Duncan's funeral,

He was so scared he wanted to scat.

Lady Macbeth caused him to do it,

She motivated him to murder,

He got the feeling he was unfit,

He was told that he was a absurd.

At the beginning she was so chill,

She didn't feel ant guilt at all,

But it ended up going downhill,

Lady Macbeth caused his downfall, y'all.

He never really wanted to do it,

Weather he wanted it or not he was forced.
