Literary Analysis of Macbeth
Literary Analysis of Macbeth Having a lust for queen back end ready a loss in many things. Its as if youre in a win-lose situation. In this case, the play Macbeth written by Shakespeare has scholars sayings, The lust for power by Macbeth and Lady Macbeth led to a loss of humanity. With that said, I totally agree with their view. Both Lady Macbeth and Macbeth went out of their way to even killing power Duncan and burdening the murder on his guardsmen. Even though thats a common human act, you scarce dont do something like that. Its just so wrong.The acts of both these people are very evil and violent, in which causes Macbeth to move from one act of endangerment to another just to protect himself from a with child(p) disaster which I likely consider his death to be it. Lady Macbeth is like a tag along buddy. She is like a huge luck hand to Macbeth and ends up dying on her way to the top with him. Both of their desires for high royalty led themselves to death. So, as said lustin g for power is very baneful to oneself unless done in a proper way meaning without anyone croakting hurt.The prophecies from the three witches which take place in the woods are what started Macbeth to lose his judging and soon after Lady Macbeth. With the encounter of the witches, they greeted Macbeth as, Hail to thee Thane of Glamis, Thane of Cawdor, and nance here-after. The title he has now is Thane of Glamis, but he doesnt understand how he could shoot the title of Thane of Cawdor, when actually Macbeth only led great power Duncans forces to victory, so considering that the Thane of Cawdor still lives, theres no way he can get that title.Being called King here-after definitely got his head pumped up with adrenaline to seek more questions and answers. Soon after the witches vanish, the noblemen of Scotland Ross and Angus were sent by King Duncan to tell Macbeth of the execution of the Thane of Cawdor and to grant Macbeth of the title. With that said, Macbeth was shocked th at the prophecy had precipitate true. So, after one prediction, hes hoping for another-in which it is to become King of Scotland. With the visit to King Duncan, the King announces that his son Malcolm leave behind be heir to the throne.In Macbeths foreland, all he can think about is murdering the King and all that will come along with it. Macbeth sends a letter to his wife telling of all that has happened and to prepare for the Kings visit. In order to keep the murder in her mind she doesnt want anything to get in her way, so she even goes to the point of seeking evil and not wanting to be a women-afraid of the feminine shipway which will interfere in the murder. When Lady Macbeth says, Come, you spirits/ That tend on mortal thoughts, unsex me here, / And fill me, from the cr knowledge to the toe, top-full/ Of direst roughnessMake thick my kindred (I v ll. 44-47) it shows how far Lady Macbeth is willing to go to make sure her husband and herself gets to the top. She even goes to the point to call upon the spirits to unsex her and fill her with cruelty to make sure that here feminine ways dont cause the plan to go wrong. A huge act of lusting for power victorious place which led to a loss of humanity was when the killing of King Duncan actually took place. The way he died was very unfortunate for Scotland but at to the lowest degree he died without torture. Lady Macbeths plan was to get King Duncans guardsmen drunk in which she did.That then led to an open path to walk in and carry out the murder of the King. However, a weakness rose for Lady Macbeth the resemblance of her father was seen in the King and led her to backtrack. With the guardsmen drunk to a put in of sleep, Macbeth then moves in for the kill. He takes the guardsmen blade, goes in and stabs King Duncan in his sleep. With that done, Lady Macbeth puts the sword back with the guardsmen, seeing that Macbeth has been cowardly traumatized of what he had done and cannot re develop the sword ba ck to the Kings guardsmen.The aftermath soon takes place with Macduff soon getting suspicious of Macbeth. Another prophecy is put into Macbeths mind about when the witches say Banquos children will rule while Macbeths does not. Now, keep in mind that Banquo is like Macbeths best friend. But, do you think that will stop Macbeth from doing anything worse? No, he doesnt care about Banquo, as a matter of fact not even anyone now that he thinks he is unstoppable. Macbeth soon sends his people to kill Banquo and his son Fleance. Banquo is dead, but Fleance manages to escape.With the plan to kill Banquo and Fleance in his mind, he does not say anything to his wife and so that leaves her on her own. When he tells his wife, And with thy bloody and invisible hand/ Cancel and tear to pieces that great bond/ Which keeps my pale Things bad begun make strong themselves by ill. / So prithee go with me. (III ii ll. 53-55/60-61) he shows how bad he is really lusting to get to the top. Hell even br eak that bond of good friendship with Banquo to get it. By ill-fated events, Macbeth mean that things will be stronger in whatever takes place of those events.The turning point of this unit ordeal is when Macbeth shouldve drew the line when deciding that he would murder abattoir Macduffs family. He just went over the edge with this plan. In my opinion, Macbeth has just lost it. To go and murder someones family is as if your planning your own death. As Macduff has gone to England and Macbeth is getting suspicious of him, he seeks the killing of the family. You can guarantee retaliation is amongst Macduff when he finds out all this. Another shocking turn of events is when Macbeth learns of Lady Macbeths death. He had shown little emotion.His lust for power caused him to even care little of the suicidal murder of his Lady. Macbeth ends up dying in the more or less horrible way. During battle against Malcolm and Macduffs troops, he ends up getting his head chopped off by Macduff. Mac beth died like a tyran he is. As you can see, Lady Macbeth and Macbeth had this great amount of lust, desire, want, and craving for power. They got everything, but as a result lives have been lost. While Lady Macbeth has her new title as queen, she belatedly seems like she isnt enjoying it, and the reason for that is due to the fact that her guilty conscience followed up on her little by little.She felt like what she did was wrong as in killing King Duncan and lying to everyone. She couldnt even take it anymore that it caused her to lose her mind and commit suicide. Macbeth, in my opinion throughout this whole play sets him up to die from the start. It was like he wrote his own death. Both these two lost their mind completely, almost un-human like. Overall, as you can see, all the events of onerous to gain power caused all these tragic events.
