The Downfall of Macbeth
Characterization-"what he hath lost noble Macbeth hath won"(1.2.68). At first, we see Macbeth as a courageous and loyal person when he saves Duncan. Ironically, in the very next scene he shows characteristic of disloyalty and wickedness when he first considers killing Duncan.
Paradox- "Fair is foul, Foul is Fair" (1.1.12). These statements can both be true but not together. Someone could disagree with something that is fair, so fair is foul to them. Something that is fair doesn't always have to be foul though. Foul isn't always fair.
Metaphor- "O full of scorpions is my mind, dear wife"(3.2.39). There are not actual scorpions in his head.Macbeth is trying to tell Lady Macbeth that he cannot rest or enjoy his kingdom because his mind is unsettled.
Duncan was the emperor and the king
The witches told Macbeth that he'd be cheif
So he must kill Duncan to reach his ring
Lady Macbeth was pleased to hear this news
She made Macbeth kill Duncan in his sleep
He took the dagger with him as he ruse
He was looking for peace but he would weep
Then, the witches said "you are undying"
Just then, the forest morphed kind of bended
Macbeth was killed and his rein was dying
Also, the lady, her mind not so splendid
Full of guilt Lady Macbeth is very dead
So e'er you do, don't get a big head
