The Dead Butcher and the Fiend like Queen
Does This Describe Macbeth and Lady Macbeth?
I want to first split this into two parts Macbeth and Lady Macbeth.
The Fiend Like Queen,
I say that Lady Macbeth is defiantly a fiend, meaning evil, demon or devil because of what she had done mentally to Macbeth, she had got Macbeth to kill just to be king. Well I say just, king is a big roll, lots of power and wealth and he wanted to become king but doesn t everyone?
But Lady Macbeth wanted Macbeth to become king and quick because she wanted the wealth and riches as well, she was very greedy.
I felt that Macbeth did not really want to kill Duncan after he did because of what he said in Act II Scene 2 50-53 I ll go no more, I am afraid to think what I have done Look on t again I dare not. Were Lady Macbeth does not seem to care Act II Scene 2 46-47 Go get some water and wash this filthy witness from your hands.
Lady Macbeth makes out to be very loving and charming to Macbeth but underneath she is A Fiend Like Queen she wants the power and money of a Queen and she will get it any way she can.
I think that The Dead Butcher Macbeth could describe him so well in on way, because if the saying The dead butcher and the fiend like Queen was made after the production was Witch it must have been because you would have had to see the play or read it before you made that assumption. So that would mean Macbeth would have been dead and he could have had a job as a butcher for all we know, or he could have done a bit on the side at week ends like a Saturday job. But that is probably very unlikely and an easy way to get out of a piece of coursework.
Near the beginning of the script of Macbeth it seems that Macbeth is being loured into doing it. But not just by Lady Macbeth but also by the three witches, he could have been put under a spell and was unable to not kill, Act 1 scene 3 The witches are shouting Hail! And Macbeth is standing their stunned. Shakespeare writes about magic and mystical happenings like in A Mid summers night dream with fairies who do evil things to people. In Macbeth Shakespeare talks about a magic root Act I scene 3 83-85 Were such things here as we do speak about? Or have we eaten on the insane root that takes the reason prisoner? So in this case I would say that Macbeth was a killer but he did not know that he was doing it or that he wanted to do it he just did because he could not help it. So that means the statement The Dead Butcher is not true.
Then there is the natural way of thinking, the way most films go now days, someone wants something but there is someone else in the way an Macbeth d you need to get rid of him/her. So, you kill him/her hide the evidence you get what you want then the police seem to find it out some how and you get arrested and then put in prison. Now if I lay Macbeth s story on top of this one
Lady Macbeth and Macbeth want to be King and Queen, but there is someone king and if you don t get rid of him soon he is not going to pick you to take the throne but you are in line at the moment. So you kill the king and become king or that is what you will become but the ceremony hasn t taken place yet, but then something go wrong, and you get found out and you get killed. This way Macbeth would have been quite a nasty piece of work and there was evidence that he was and so was Lady Macbeth, Act I scene 7 51-52 Nor time nor place did then adhere, and yet you would make both. This means that Macbeth and Lady Macbeth thought of killing Duncan before Macbeth meets with the witches. This would mean that he is a nasty peace of work and The Dead Butcher
I think Macbeth is the last idea, he was in for the wealth and the power and his plan like always springs back on him and gets killed, maybe I am just saying this because I have seen a few movies at the cinema and it links to them and works or he is just A Dead Butcher
