Shakespeares Development Of Power In Macbeth :: essays research papers
Macbeth is a very berth greedy person. It is not necessarily his own doing that he is such a ruthless person. It all started (Macbeth being author greedy) with the Three Witches predictions "All harbinger, Macbeth hail to thee, thane of Glamis/ All hail, Macbeth hail to thee, thane of/ Cawdor/ All hail, Macbeth That shalt be king hereafter." (1.3.50-54)As soon as Macbeth learned of his future, he began to scheme on just exactly how he would cope with these prophecies. That is when he decided that he would have to dispatch Duncan to fulfill the last prophecy. But that is when he had a change or heart. The altogether problem with Macbeth deciding not to murder Duncan, is that all of a sudden Lady Macbeth became the power greedy one. This is when Lady Macbeths scheming began. Although Macbeth had changed his mind and fundamentally refused to murder Duncan, Lady Macbeth was able to eventually change him to carry by with the plan. Even though Macbeth was the one who execu ted the plan, Lady Macbeth was the mastermind only ift end the scheme. Her greed for power was the one major factor that possessed her to convince Macbeth of the plan and carry through with it. Macbeth murdered Duncan at Iverness, and became hysterical after doing so. As a result of Malcolm and Donalbains suspicions resulting in their departure to England and Ireland Macbeth became king this was the eventual(prenominal) power that he and Lady Macbeth had as their goal (well, actually it was to a greater extent of Lady Macbeths goal), and now he eventually had received it. Nothing was issue to take away this ultimate power from Macbeth, and he would do anything to cumber it. Macbeths ruthlessness results in him ordering three murderers to murder his best friend, Banquo. The power of being king has taken over Macbeths life, and he is a dupe of his own greed for power. He is a tyrant. Not only does Macbeth murder Banquo (not directly, of course), he also murders (actually he has p eople murder) Macbuffs family. Macbeth does not murder Macduff, but he does murder his wife, children, and servants.
