King of Scotland after Duncan

How would you like to be king?

If you were in Macbeth's shoes, would you murder your friend?


This story was interesting because Macbeth did not wan't to kill the king ("If chance will have me king, why chance may crown me without my stir.") but he killed him anyways. I think he killed him because the thought of all of the power he would have overwhelmed his pledge to not do anything to speed the process. I was also surprised that he killed his best friend Banquo to protect his secret of killing the king.
