Anyone give me some help or information on how to improve my macbeth essay i have done, its below.?





In the Shakespearean tragedy ‘Macbeth’, Macbeth has to cope with strong feelings such as love, jealousy, ambition and hatred. I will illustrate how Macbeth deals with his feelings and how his character changes through this and the effect it has on the outcome of the play.Macbeth has triumphed in battle then comes across three witches who predict what is going to happen. King Duncan gives Macbeth the title ‘The Thane of Cawdor’. Lady Macbeth receives great news that Duncan is staying with them, Macbeth gets his chance to brutally murder Duncan. He does this because he is jealous of the fact Duncan is King and he is not. Lady Macbeth manipulates Macbeth because he has his doubts. The news of Duncan gets around people the following day that Duncan is dead. Macbeth achieves his ambition of becoming king. He then goes on to kill Banquo because he had an arousing suspicion of him being the murderer of Duncan. Macbeth is tormented by Banquo’s ghost so he turns to the witches for guidance. Lady Macbeth goes mad and commits suicide leaving Macbeth drowned with sorrows because of his love for her. Macduff then slays Macbeth for the murder of Duncan and Malcolm is crowned king.Macbeth deals with his feelings by killing King Duncan because of his ambition to be king and his admiration towards him. He is annoyed by the fact people are in a closer position to be king than himself so he goes around killing people who are either close in line to the throne or just have an arousing feeling that Macbeth committed the murders. The quote "A Borrower of the Night" means that the ghost of Banquo of whom Macbeth murdered will be back late and it will be dark, Banquo will come back to torment Macbeth and this makes him drive mad with hatred as well as fear. He deals with this by going to the witches for guidance. He killed Banquo first because Macbeth had an arousing suspicion that Banquo knew and would tell. When Macbeth went to visit the witches for the first time, the witches predicted that Banquo’s son would be the future King, this however deterred Macbeth’s wishes of being king, he decided to kill Banquo’s son but he fled before he had the chance.Macbeth was introduced into the play as a brave soldier. A quote suggesting Macbeth was a brave soldier is "the captain tells Duncan about the bravery of Macbeth" Duncan sees in Macbeth that he has the potential to fight of an invasion even so; Duncan makes him Thane of Cawdor. He and his wife were determined to gain the titles ‘King and Queen’. Both of them think the way to succeeding in taking the current kings throne, is by killing King Duncan. Macbeth is now portrayed as a murderer. King Duncan has two sons Donalbain and Malcolm, Donalbain fled to Ireland, Malcolm is the rightful king but for then Macbeth was king for a while.All the killings he has undertaken have kept a guilty conscience which has led him to a change. His wife was manipulating him into killing other people when he had his doubts on it. A major change in Macbeth was when his wife was hallucinating blood on he hands which drove her mad and eventually ended up committing suicide. Macbeth has a strong love bond for Lady Macbeth. A quote suggesting a guilty conscience is "O full of scorpions is my mind" all the killings has built up to a guilty conscience. In my opinion, Macbeth was an ambitious rogue who seeks power by treachery. The effect on the outcome of the play is King Duncan’s murder, Lady Macbeths Suicide and Macbeths slaying.In conclusion, Macbeth is both a victim of external forces and some of his fate. The witches and his wife are both bad influences on him. Macbeth, Macduff and Banquo are alike because they have courage, strength, determination and dedicated in fighting, making those brave soldiers and they have good leadership and generosity. Although they have there differences which include Macduff and Banquo lacking heroic potency of a Shakespearean hero and Macbeth ends up as a tragic hero. Banquo and Macduff would have been boring heroes and so predictable whereas with Macbeth, you could never know what he was plotting. Out of the three, Macbeth is the one who makes a drastic change which is from good to evil.

    Tips to improve your essay: . Incorporate the ideas that: . Macbeth’s ‘vaulting ambition’ became stronger than his conscience, after the tempting witch-prophesies of his assuming the throne and the insistance of his cunning wife. . . (ie: the witches tempt him into indulging his own greed & grab for power) . . Macbeth could have let fate take it’s course: Macbeth thinks that “If chance will have me king, why, chance may / Crown me / Without my stir” (I.iv.157-159). . Show how each of Macbeth’s murders only required him to murder more, for cover-up & ‘security’ and how Macbeth’s murderous rampage led to his downfall (forces wouldn’t unite against him if he hadn’t killed their families) . . (ie: “He who lives by the sword shall die by it” and “Violence never solved any problems”) . Explain how Macbeth murdered: Duncan out of Ambition for the throne, Banquo out of insecurity & Macduff’s clan out of over-confidence – all based on manipulative witch-’prophesies’ he came to trust, more than his friends & the nation he had fought to defend . . (ie: he gave up his real friends & conscience for the half-truths & tempting promises of smooth talking dark-strangers in the woods – what good is it to gain the whole world, yet lose your soul ) About Banquo: Before he murders Duncan, Macbeth is a very close friend to Banquo, and they are almost always together. After murdering Duncan, Macbeth senses Banquo’s suspicion. He realizes that Banquo’s “wisdom that doth guide his valour / To act in safety” (52-53) will cause Banquo to want to turn Macbeth in for his crime. Macbeth gets rid of Banquo, to silence him & to prevent the witches prophecy of the throne passing to Banquo’s sons. Macbeth entices 2 murderers to kill Banquo:Macbeth: Both of you. Know Banquo was your enemy.Murderers: True, my lord.Macbeth: So is he mine; and in such bloody distance. That every minute of his being thrusts; Against my near’st of life;(III, i, 114b-118)Later Macbeth is relieved upon hearing of Banquo’s death when the murderer calls him to the door during a banquet. Macbeth: There’s blood upon thy face.Murderer: ‘Tis Banquo’s then.Macbeth: ‘Tis better thee without than he within.(III, iv, 12-14) Macbeth’s last statement, “Tis . . . within”, means that Banquo’s blood is better on the murderer than in Banquo, showing that Macbeth is happy that Banquo is dead. About Duncan: Before Macbeth hears the witches’ first prophecy, he is very close to Duncan, and would never even think of doing something against him. When the thought of murdering Duncan crosses his mind immediately after he finds that he has just been named Thane of Cawdor, he cannot believe he “yield[s] to that suggestion / Whose horrid image doth unfix my hair / And make my seated heart knock at my ribs” (I, iii, 133-35). In scene 5 of act 1, however, his “vaulting ambition” is starting to take over, but partly because of his wife’s persuasion. He agrees that they must “catch the nearest way” , and kill Duncan that night. On the other hand, as the time for murder comes nearer, he begins giving himself reasons not to murder Duncan: ” First, as I am his kinsman and his subject, ; Strong both against the deed; then, as his host, ; Who should against his murderer shut the door, Not bear the knife myself. ” (I, vii, 13-16) But, Lady Macbeth uses her cunning rhetoric and pursuasion techniques to convince Macbeth that this is, beyond the shadow of a doubt, the right thing to do. He then tells her that “I am settled.” He is firmly seated in his beliefs that killing Duncan is the right thing to do-until he performs the murder. He is so horrified by this act that for a moment he forgets where he is or whom he is with. We learn from this murder that Macbeth truly had faith in the king and was very loyal, but under the forces of his wife’s persuasion and his own vaulting ambition, he is put in the evil frame of mind for just long enough to kill Duncan. This murder does permanently alter him from his moral state of mind, however, and he soon does not feel much remorse for murdering Duncan.Macbeth is one of Shakespeare’s great tragedies, based on Holinshed’s Chronicles of England, Scotland, and Ireland. It was written around 1605 but was not published in the first Folio until 1623. It tells about the fall of the ambitious couple, Macbeth and Lady Macbeth. Macbeth is the tragic hero, a character who has the fatal (tragic) flaw of being too ambitious. Macbeth is a story about the murder of a king by his brother, the revenge of a son (Macbeth), three witches who plot against Macbeth, and Macbeth’s rise and fall. We first meet Macbeth as a brave soldier and later find him as a murderer who kills everyone who is in his way of the throne. Macbeth succombs to his ruthlessly ambitious-tendencies under the influence of the plotting witches tempting-prophecies of his becoming king and Lady Macbeth’s viciously, cunning plans. The witches tempted Macbeth by telling him he would be King, had he never heard that he may have been satisfied as Thane of Cawdor. But the witches never told him to murder King Duncan, his wife did that. After killing Duncan, he went on murdering to cover up his crime and to continue to ‘secure’ his position as king. Interestingly it is through these murders to ‘secure’ his position that others are motivated to unite against him and eventually kill him. It is because he killed his friends out of fear, that he had no friends left, and lived in fear of everyone. He became a strategic assasin to gain a high position and then became a paranoid mass-murderer in trying to defend that ill gotten position.
