Transcript of Macbeth goes crazy

Macbeth's Downward Spiral Killing Duncan Takes its toll on Macbeth The End Macbeth reverts Back to himself Macbeth is no longer attached to reality. Macbeth Becomes a monster The witches put Macbeth on edge. Macbeth starts off as a good guy. He fights for his nation and kills a rebel."For brave Macbeth—well he deserves that name/Disdaining fortune, with his brandished steel/Which smoked with bloody execution/Like valor’s minion carved out his passage"(1.2). As this quote shows Macbeth starts out a liked person. Once the witches arrive in the story, Macbeth starts to act all confused but this is short lived and quickly replaced with normal behavior from Macbeth as shown in this quote."If chance will have me king/why, chance may crown me/Without my stir." It took little convincing form his wife for him to decide to kill Duncan. She manipulated him."That day will never come."(1.5). This quote is taken after Macbeth informs lady Macbeth of the witches prophecy. This quote is pretty much all it took for her to convince Macbeth to kill Duncan. Macbeth starts to go insane after he kills Duncan, and he starts acts a lot differently then he used to earlier in the play. "Ride you this afternoon?"(3.1). This quote comes from the scene where Macbeth is planning to kill Banquo. He is acting extremely paranoid and this was the second time he was asking if he was coming. The quote shows that Macbeth has already changed. Macbeth seeks the witches for comfort when he starts to feel like things could go wrong. The appearance of Banquo's ghost and Fleance escaping put him on edge. They also showed Macbeth at his lowest point in the play, and it worked as a turning point. After this point Macbeth has gone completely mad. This shows that he has lost confidence in his self and gained confidence in the supernatural. "I conjure you by that which you profess/Howe'er you come to know it—answer me"(4.1). This quote shows that Macbeth is starting to get hostile and nervous. He is demanding that the witches give him more prophecies. Macbeth decides to have MacDuff's family killed after hearing the prophecies. This shows that he has become a true monster. While being faced with death its self, Macbeth reverts to his old noble self. "I will not yield/To kiss the ground before young Malcolm’s feet"(5.8). This quote was taken from the scene where Macbeth is faced with MacDuff. It shows that even though he knows he cannot win he is willing to die a noble death. Macbeth is easily manipulated by his wife
