Tragic Flaw
of being power hungry, and making him a truly evil person. Macbeth is a totally new person than he was during Act 1.
ACT 2:
"Is this a dagger which I see before me, The handle toward my hand? Come, let me clutch thee. I have thee not. and yet I see thee still... I see thee yet, in form as palpable as which now I draw..."(II.i.33-41)

Appearance vs. Reality MacBeth
By: Zack Aufderheide & Brett Parr
Explanations: Macbeth is already feeling guilty at just the thought of him killing Duncan because Duncan made him Thane of Cawdor. Therefore he hallucinates all the thoughts that goes through his head about the killing.

ACT 3:
"Be bloody, bold, and resolute. Laugh to scorn The power of man, for none of woman born shall harm Macbeth"(IV.i.81-84).

The second apparition that appears brought down by the witches is telling Macbeth that no man that comes from a women can harm him.
ACT 4:
"Oh, full of scorpions is my mind, dear wife" (III.ii.38)!

Macbeth has a guilty mind about wanting to kill Banquo and even more threats to the thrown.

This type of
of later in the play that Macduff isn't actually from a women he was torn out of the mother's stomach leading to the
of Macbeth getting killed.
"Fair is foul, and foul is fair"(I.i.12).

The witches are plotting to meet again and find Macbeth at the end of the scene.
Explanation: Lady Macbeth's guilty conscious has complete control to the point where her sleep walking is involuntary. This
gives the Doctor and Gentlewomen a description of the murders.
"Out! damned spot! Out, I say!-One,two. Why, then, 'tis time to do't. Hell is murky!-Fie, my lord,fie! A soldier, and afeard? What need we fear who knows it, when none can call our power to account?-Yet who would have thought the old man to have had so much blood in him"(V.i.25-31).
Lady Macbeth is sleep walking at night reenacting the night she was washing the blood off her hands from Duncan's body while insulting his manhood.

In this article the Psychologists proved that a person describes or interprets an experience that is accompanied by feelings and urgency. Delusions which are a type of hallucination are false beliefs based on incorrect inference about external reality. Macbeth shows this in the scene where he hallucinates about seeing the dagger he will use to kill Duncan later that night.
