Lady Macbeth

Many people in the play "Macbeth" had an effect in the downfall of Macbeth. The character that had the greatest effect on his downfall was Lady Macbeth. In the beginning of the play she is encouraging Macbeth to kill Duncan. Lady Macbeth basically had the whole thing planned out, and he just had to kill him. If it wasn't for Lady Macbeth's approval Macbeth probably would not of done the deeds he did. After Macbeth heard the witches prophecy he said, ".. I know I am Thane of Glamis, but how of Cawdor? The Thane of Cawdor lives..." (act 1 scene 1). This is when Macbeth started realizing that the only way to become king was to kill Duncan. From then on he was most likely contemplating on whether it is something he should do or not. Lady Macbeth lets Macbeth know that he needs to kill Duncan by saying, " O, never shall sun that morrow see (act 1 scene 5). She lets Macbeth know that she does not plan on letting Duncan live through the night. Lady Macbeth was already planning on how Duncan was going to die. When Macbeth was having second thoughts Lady Macbeth told him, "And live a coward in thine own esteem..." (act 1 scene 7). Lady Macbeth is playing mind games with Macbeth by telling him he is coward for having second thoughts. In reality Macbeth isn't a coward for not wanting to murder the king; Lady Macbeth is just brainwashing him to think that he is.

Irony

Macbeth does most of his killing with a dagger. The ironic part is that a few scenes before the killings start he sees a dagger floating in front of him. Not only that the handle is pointing towards him. "Is this dagger I see in front of me, with its handle pointing towards me" (act 2 scene 1). Ironically, later on while killing his victims he did in fact use a dagger, the one he saw in his hallucination. Without that hallucination he may not of had the dagger to look for as a murder weapon and may have used something different.

Foreshadowing

The witches are hinting to the viewers throughout the whole play that something bad will happen to Macbeth if he keeps going through with all of these killings, The goddess of witchcraft said to the witches,, "How dare you to trade and traffic with Macbeth in riddles and affairs of death..." (act 3 scene 5). This shows that the whole time the witches were hinting to him about him dying by using riddles he didn't quite understand.

Dynamic Character

In the book, Macbeth's wife, Lady Macbeth, nags and nags at him about being a man because he does not want to kill people to get the kings spot. But, Lady Macbeth has a different idea. She wants the power so bad that she is willing to kill for it, "To alter favor ever is to fear.Leave all the rest to me" (act 1 scene 6). She is saying that if he is too scared to do it that she will do it and be more of a man than him. This would effect Macbeth because if she would not of said that he wouldn't have to prove himself, and most likely would not have gone on with the killing. But, since he wants to show he is a man to his wife he has to kill to show he is, in fact, a man.
