Transcript of Macbeth's Downfall

Macbeth failed in securing the throne of Scotland for himself. But, what were the
reasons for his downfall? Lady Macbeth The Witches Macbeth, himself hi Art thou afeard
To be the same in thine own act and valor
As thou art in desire? Wouldst thou have that
Which thou esteem'st the ornament of life,
And live a coward in thine own esteem;
Letting "I dare not" wait upon "I would,"(I. vii. 39-44) What beast was't, then,

When you durst do it, then you were a man;

All hail, Macbeth! Hail to thee, thane of Cawdor!
All hail, Macbeth, thou shalt be king hereafter!
(I. iii. 49-53) Macbeth! beware Macduff;
Beware the thane of Fife.
(IV. i. 73-74) Be bloody, bold, and resolute; laugh to scorn
The power of man, for none of woman born
Shall harm Macbeth. (IV. i. 81-83) - Gave him overconfidence
