Transcript of MACBETH

what's done is done." (Act 3, scene 2)
Lady Macbeth is accepting the fact that she participated in the murder of Duncan. She's knows that she's responsible for her own actions. She exposes Macbeth's
tragic flaw
; his weak manhood.
Macbeth is the perfect example of having everything yet having nothing at all.
of Responsibility
Responsibility often gets confused with blame, which assumes that someone or something is at fault for something. Blame always has a judgmental sound to it. No one wants to accept the blame for something. On the contrary, most people will openly try to avoid receiving blame.
Responsibility, on the other hand, is completely different. While blame is a concept, mainly associated with failure and negativity, responsibility can be an empowering force, a “… choosing that allows us to claim ownership of the circumstances of our lives, and thereby, to contribute to making them better. “
Diffusion of responsibility is a socio-psychological phenomenon whereby a person is less likely to take responsibility for action or inaction when others are present. Essentially, in a large group of people, people may feel that individual responsibility to intervene is lessened because it is shared by all of the onlookers.

Macbeth posses all the recognition and praise he could ever want, he sometimes does not fulfill or take the responsibility of his actions. Macbeth plots to kill Duncan after invitation to his home . Then we see irony when Banquo addresses Macbeths success when he says "Thou hast it now: King, Cawdor, Glamis, all. As the weird women promis'd, and i fear Thou play'dst most foully for 't."(III.i1-3).
Macbeth doesn't want to take the responsibility of his role in killing Duncan. The

He had a sense of urgency to get the blood odd of his hands but he felt he could not. "Will all great Neptunes's Ocean was this blood"(II.ii57) . However Lady Macbeth replies in line 64 with "A little water clears us of this deed."
Macbeth has an
after the witches tell him he'll be king. "If chance will me king, why, chance may crown me, without my stir. (1.3.157-159)

Macbeth and Lady Macbeth both want the crown and Lady Macbeth is willing to do anything to get it. Lady Macbeth knows that she has full control & responsibility over her husband, which is why she plans on manipulating him to kill Duncan.
Lady Macbeth taking advantage of her husband depicts the
tragic flaw
of Macbeth
What cannot you and I perform upon
The unguarded Duncan?" (Lady Macbeth) (act1 sc.7)

Macbeth is responsible for his death, due to the fact he let 3 witches
his life and ultimately it gets him killed. He brings on the battle but in the end it costs him his life. "I have no spur
To prick the sides of my intent, but only
Vaulting ambition, which o'erleaps itself
And falls on the other."(I.VII)
Also, There's no good reason for Macbeth's intention, he knows that his ambition goes too far and is based on nothing reasonable, making him responsible for his downfall.

Macbeth has a
giving reasons for the murder. He particularly remembers how Banquo stood up and took ownership about the murder, to the witches: "He chid the sisters / When first they put the name of king upon me, / And bade them speak to him" (3.1.56-58).
"Things without all remedy should be without regard: what's done is done."
(Act 3 sc 2)
Meaning: The
of this quote is not to dwell over what can't be changed, it already happened so just take ownership of what you did.
