Who is to blame for Macbeth's Downfall?

Macbeth himself is the reason for his downfall. Macbeth is an individual person who can control himself, his actions, and his thoughts. There may have been some persuasion along the way from his wife but all and all what Macbeth did his fault. During dinner with the King Duncan Macbeth steps away from the table, second guessing his decisions,’’’...I am his kinsman and his subject, Strong both against the deed; then,as his host who should against his murderer shut the door, Not bear the knife myself ‘’’ ( Act 1 Scene 7). Macbeth is showing his regret about the plan to kill Duncan. If Macbeth would have stopped himself right here in this moment he would have saved himself from a lot of killing and murder and ultimately would have lived a better longer life. After killing King Duncan and becoming King Macbeth revisits the witches demanding them for more information,”, Tell me thou unknown power’....’The pow’r of man, for none of woman shall harm Macbeth’…’ Macbeth should never be vanquished be until Great Birnam Wood to high Dunsinane Hill Shall come against him”’( Act 4 Scene 1). If Macbeth would have never gone back to the witches and learned of how he could not be harmed, Macbeth may have been more cautious and probably would have not mocked and ignored his servants and the army that ultimately ended his reign and killed him. Finally, After seeing the witches Macbeth murders Macduff’s family. When Macduff finds out about the deed that Macbeth has done he says,’’’Front to front Bring thou this fiend of Scotland and myself. Within my sword’s length set him. If he scapes, Heaven forgive him too!’’’( Act 4 Scene 3). Now Macduff seeks revenge for Macbeth had crossed one too many lines with his foul play, because of this Macduff has a personal wish to kill Macbeth giving him more of a motive to push forward and slain the King of Scotland, Macbeth.

What Does This Painting Represent ?

The painting "Storm" by: Liam Rainsford reminds me of the places the weird sisters would always appear,"'When shall we three meet again In thunder, lighting, or in rain?'....' Where the place? Upon the heath '"(Act 1 Scene 1). This picture represents not only the setting for where the weird sisters appear but it also represents the tone or mood of the play. It is very dark and grim. Macbeth murdering and ruining innocent people's lives. You can also see in the painting the remains of an old farm which remind me of what Scotland had become after Macbeth becoming King. Uninviting and no desire to live there.

What Does This Movie Have To Do With Macbeth ?

The movie," Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron" has one of the main conceptions of Macbeth, Ambition. In Macbeth, as you all know, Macbeth becomes to ambitious and does things that normally he wouldn't, like murder. Same thing happens in the movie. Tony Stark, after capturing Loki's lost scepter, decides that he can create artificial intelligence that can protect the world. Instead he and Bruce Banner create a revenge seeking murder bot that wants to extinguish the human race and build a world full of robots. Now the movie wouldn't have been a very long movie if Tony Stark would have left the scepter alone and done his job, but he doesn't. He builds this artificial intelligence because of his extremely high ambition and own desires exactly like Macbeth.
