Transcript of Macbeth

to Destruction Macbeth's Path The Thane of Cawdor switched sides and was a traitor to his country, and therefore had to give up his title as well as his life. Macbeth begins as a valiant and courageous soldier who helped win the battle. The prophecy that he would become Thane of Cawdor is fulfilled. This makes Macbeth think that the prophecy that he will become king might come true. Here begins Macbeth's very ambitious character to fulfill all the witches have said. Now Macbeth meets the witches and communes with them. They foretell his future and call him Thane of Cawdor. Valiant Soldier While Duncan sleeps, Macbeth goes into his chamber and murders him.

One killing led to another and many more. Thane of Cawdor Murder Once Macbeth has heard that he must beware of Macduff, he kills all Macduff's family members. Macbeth again meets with the witches and is told who he must be careful of. The witches warn him of Macduff (who was not born of women) and how he will be able to conquor all those born of women. Consulting the Witches Macbeth begins as someone who is worthy of honor, but later turns into a dictator. He receives one of the highest titles, but gives that up and becomes one of the least respected people due to his actions. Macbeth realizes that once an evil deed is committed, more will come. This is noted when he said, "Things bad begun make strong themselves by ill." Through all his deeds he gains little, but loses almost everything including peace of mind. Final Overview
