Macbeth is, in all ways, a tragic hero. His greatness led to his obsession and then to his shocking, yet inevitable, downfall.

But after the turn of many events and Macbeth\'s constant fear of being caught, he becomes weak. Macbeth is extremely passionate about becoming king.

Macbeth In Shakespeare\'s Macbeth, one of the reoccurring themes throughout the play was Fair is foul and foul is fair. This is used to explain that people and events may seem either good or bad, but after some inspection, turn out to be the opposite. In my opinion, Nothing is but what is not, is similar to Fair is foul and foul is fair, because it is declaring how things are, in fact, what people believe they are contrary to. First, throughout the play, many people end up being the opposite of

Besides being a powerful work written by Shakespeare, Macbeth was also a gruesome tragedy about the deaths of many people including Macbeths wife. For a person that lived through such tough circumstances, the fact that Macbeth chose to describe life as a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing is no surprise. Macbeth was a corrupt man given different perspectives on life than most normal people. Life is not a tale told by an idiot, but a truly splendid gift given f

Although he takes the actions, he would not have done this if the witches had not told him that he would be king in Act I Scene iii. I believe that it is the witches are more responsible for the downfall of Macbeth. The witches introduce Macbeths’s fate.

Did he know that he was writing a drama of deep psychological significance, a play which would eventually be viewed and read the world over, produced man
