A strong drive for success that can't be controlled.
The Three Witches tell Macbeth a prophecy of which he will become king. Macbeth and Lady Macbeth have a lust for the crown and Lady Macbeth convinces Macbeth to kill Duncan. Macbeth is worried to kill his and questions doing it because of the consequences he may have in the afterlife, but the Lady plays on his emotions and makes his final decision to kill the king.
In this scene, King Duncan is killed by Macbeth. The following day, a porter, Macduff, and Lennox arrive and find the king dead. Macbeth then goes and kills the servants before they can say they are innocent. This ambition is also getting to Banquo, who earlier in the scene said "Merciful powers/Restrain in me the cursed thoughts that nature/Gives way to in repose" (2.1.7-9)
In the prophecy, it says that Banquo won't be king himself. However, his sons will be king. Macbeth is worried about this so he decides to hire people to kill Banquo and his son, Fleance.
Macbeth meets with the witches to see the future and learns that Macduff is preparing for war. He is told many things that boost his confidence, but he learns that Banqou's descendents will rule Scotland. He is very angry because he will lose his power as king. Macbeth then sends murderers to kill Lady Macduff and her son.
While Macbeth is busy gathering his army to fight, the guilt overwhelms Lady Macbeth when she is alone. A doctor observes her and says what she has cannot be cured. In the end, the power was not worth it and the Lady commits suicide. Macbeth goes out on the battlefield himself to fight. He is confident because the witches told him that no man born of woman could kill him. However, Macduff states that he was "untimely ripped" from his mother which means he wasn't technically born of a woman. Macduff is able to kill Macbeth and Malcolm becomes king.
After the murder of Duncan, Macbeth tells everybody to take the day off. Banquo and his son Fleance leave to ride the castle grounds. Macbeth then has a servant go get the 2 men that have been standing outside the castle and tells them his plan to have Banquo and Fleance killed. After the first 2 murders leave, a third murder sets out to make sure it is carried out. They then see Banquo and his son and start to kill Banquo and Fleance escapes.
Who cares?
Sin, corruption, and unchecked ambition are all seen in our world today. Shakespeare teaches how all of those topics can lead to bad situations. Macbeth and Lady Macbeth were the ones most affected by all 3 topics and it eventually got them killed. We should all learn from this story and take it seriously because it teaches a good lesson.
After Macduff runs away, he lives his family behind and his wife is upset about it so she tells her children their dad is dead and then her and her son Ross talk about it and she is told her and her family need to leave but she doesn't know where to go so then murders walk in and can not find Macduff and they kill his family
Lady Macbeth is full of guilt and starts going crazy and dies. When everybody decides Macbeth is a bad king they all go to his castle to fight and Macbeth thinks nobody can harm him he then goes out to fight. he strikes at people vigorously, insolent because no man born of woman can harm him. He then disappears and Macduff starts to hunt him down so he can kill him personally. When Macduff finally finds Macbeth, Macbeth refuses to surrender. Macdff then kills Macbeth and his death is like a relief to everybody.
Macbeth finds out his future and King Duncan says he is going to stay the night at Macbeth's house. A corrupt Lady Macbeth immediately begins plotting King Duncan's death so that Macbeth can be king
Macbeth fights with Macduff and isn't worried because he thinks he can't be killed by a man born of a woman because of a corrupt prophecy, but then finds out Macduff was pulled from his Mother's side, and is killed by Macduff.
