The Murder Of Macbeth In William Shakespeare's Play

Satisfactory Essays
The play Macbeth is about a brave Scottish general named Macbeth. He receives a prophecy from a trio of witches that he will one day be king of Scotland. From there on out, he is consumed by ambition and spurred by his wife to seize the throne, with whatever means necessary. Macbeth then murders Duncan, the former king of Scotland, and takes the throne for himself. From this point on, Macbeth becomes wrecked with guilt from killing his friend and companion, Banquo. In addition, Macbeth slowly descends into paranoia, fearing that someone might attempt to murder him to seize the throne, like he had done. This goes on until the end of the play, where Macbeth greets and dies by Malcolm’s, King Duncan’s son, hand in battle.
