Macbeth good man gone bad

But then our respect for Macbeth is diminished as he appears as something of a hen-pecked husband. He has sacrificed his soul for that issue and frustrated, he lashes out brutally.

He has no feeling of loath for himself or for the men he has hired.

In Macbeth, is Macbeth a tragic hero?

If he has trouble sleeping it is purely due to the worry about wiping out all threats to himself. Nature and reason restrain Macbeth. That there were evil thoughts of an ambitious nature in Macbeth from the beginning we may be sure.

He seems almost unconcerned with her illness and turns to the important business of war. However, I think fatalism is the key basis of this play, and not being a fatalist myself, find that difficult to justify. Hamlet has a morbid dread of bloodshed, and remains lax and weak-hearted.

This time, he has nothing to win, which makes his courage more awesome. Is Macbeth a man whose fate is ordained and who is simply fulfilling his destiny.

Critic Reviews

While one could say that the motive of power and framing others made him bad, he also wished to be a good king, hence making his motives just. However, she repented for what she did and felt very guilty about it which could show that she changed to become a good person. Macbeth does murder sleep.

The whole play shows an uncertainty of choosing what and who is good and bad, allowing for justifications and shifting responsibilities everywhere. However some people do not agree. We may notice, too, Macbeth's own words when speaking of himself: He is no longer the cautious and hesitating plotter, but becomes bolder and more energetic in his scheming.

His motive was also a lust for power, which is also wrong. Once he kills Duncan, he is forced to keep on killing to protect himself. Lady Macbeth's taunts are not required now to spur him on. Interestingly, none of those characters gain anything in the end, even Macduff, left without his most precious possessions- his family.

Next he says that it stuck in his throat, so not only can he not accurate make the sound, he can make no sound at all. The body language she uses in this scene are quite strong and powerful which shows that she was ready to do anything. As the enemy forces gather and his own men desert him, Macbeth starts counting the cost of his crime.

A tragic hero must have some positive qualities and must be somewhat relatable, or the audience would not be invested in the story of his downfall. The doctor realizes there is nothing he can do to help and advises that a careful watch be placed on Lady Macbeth.

And, if Macbeth was basically a decent man, why then did he go on to kill the noble Banquo. I analyzed this scene and have concluded that she was also evil in this scene as she was not sleep-walking because of guilt; she was sleep-walking because of paranoia.

However, the witches told the truth, and like he said to himself after first meeting them, they could not be good but could not be bad. Only Macduff can expose that promise for what it is, and he does.

This shows that he is a deeply flawed character from the beginning. The witches warn Macbeth to beware Macduff, but Macduff has fled and Macbeth decides to strike immediately at the Thane through his family.

The witches' prophecies tap into a hidden dark side and once the idea has been planted in his mind, Macbeth will not rest until he gains and secures the throne. The punctuation calls attention to the fact that this line in the middle of a general sentiment of how Macduff loved his family and how they were only killed because of relation to him.

After analyzing this scene I think that Lady Macbeth was also evil in this scene. He makes a choice, a very bad one. Eventually, in later scenes, the paranoia manages to kill her.

The statement 'Macbeth was basically a good man led into evil ways' is one I agree with, to a certain extent. His evilness certainly progressed throughout the play, but his influences from the witches and Lady Macbeth and degree of goodness at the start is debatable.
