Macbeth Character analyse
In the play Macbeth by William Shakespeare, Macbeth is introduced to us as a hero by clearly defining the courage that he had shown in the defence of Scotland, this is a very significant part in the play because it shows us the reader that Macbeth was not always a follower of his wife’s bidding and the witch’s visions
Macbeth si very ambitious, courageous, but a moral coward. However I can’t say that he was pure good because without the influence of his wife, he condors up the idea of killing king
Duncan , but he throws that thought aside for the time being.
In the quote Act I, sc3, p.44-55 Macbeth is thinking of killing King Duncan but then realizes that with Duncan gone there is a chance that he may not be crowned king.

Macbeth controlled his ambition for the time being and did not kill Duncan. The failing of his decision was soon reflected by Lady Macbeth who called him a coward. From then on, after the murder of Duncan, Macbeth entered into a life of evil. The way I see it after the murder of the king this just didn’t push Macbeth over the edge it was more of a throw.

At this point in the play Macbeth is acting without any encouragement from Lady Macbeth and begins to leave her in ignorance of his plans, I would say that this is what drove Lady Macbeth too her death that and her conscience bothering her about her part in the murder of Duncan so she decides to commit suicide. Macbeth is so feeling less that this doesn’t even bother him, he just says that if we would have done this after the war then there would be time to
Throughout the tragedy Macbeth turns from a kind and courageous man to a cold and lifeless blood thirsty leech, I’m not going to say that it is anyone thing or person that caused him to go
like this, I think that Lady Macbeth, the Witches and Macbeth himself all played a role in his senility. Morally I do think that it was a majority of Macbeth all played a role is his senility. Morally I do think that it was a majority of Macbeths strong belief in the witches predictions that brought him to his end.
