The key ideas of my appropriation for Macbeth would include power and ambition. This would communicate the key ideas of shakespeare to the audience as many of his plays would consist of tragedy and frequent death as the cost for something positive that would happen in this case it would be that Macbeth sought out careless power without looking onto the consequences that would ensue the near future being blinded by his own ambition and lust for power. These key ideas are relayed in the original play as Macbeth’s ambition was fueled by his wife Lady Macbeth though in my own version of the play Macbeth Donahue has a self fueled ego(ambition) and lust for power as shown once the opportunity to kill the Capo Di Tutti Capi of Chicago had revealed
In Macbeth, Duncan, a king, is killed by Lady Macbeth and Macbeth himself. Many argued, and still do, whether or not Macbeth really killed Duncan. In other words, did he even have a choice?

Known for his tragedy, intrigue, comedy, and romance, Shakespeare extends his boundary of prowess in the play Macbeth. The irony present in the play, the double-meaning of the characters’ actions, and the complexity of setting all contribute to a thrilling story of murder and looking beyond the superficial. Dramatic, situational, and verbal irony greatly contribute to the theme of things are not what they seem in Macbeth text and film.

When Shakespeare first presents Lady Macbeth in the play, we believe that she was an ambitious woman who was driven to get power at all costs. We are irresolute however as to whether she is part of a chain of events in the evilness going around the source. The first words we from her mouth are her husband’s word, which he wrote on his letter, showing us that she was the agent of his thoughts. Women in that period of time, were running a household, producing heirs for their husband and taking care of them, this is not the case for Lady Macbeth as she involves herself in social affairs. Her drive for power is what makes them so successful in their deceitful plans. The play shows us that there is a unique chemistry between two individuals which rare in that period as marriage was usually arranged. She is essentially what keeps the force going as she guides Macbeth and teaches is him how to be manipulative. Even though the crime that they had committed was treason she was simply past the point of caring as she believed she had nothing to lose as she was childless and she had no emotional fulfilment as a woman. She is superfluous and nothing less than reigning alongside Macbeth can feel this hole.

Instigated by his wife and his own lust for power, he murders Duncan, assumes the throne, and subsequently sends mercenaries to kill Banquo’s sons. While awaiting battle, Macbeth addresses the death of his wife in Act V, scene 5. Throughout the
It’s been a fortnight since the usurper was slain by Macduff. My father would’ve been very proud of the loyalty his subjects still possess even after his passing. I have named Macduff Thane of Glamis and Clawdor, Macbeth’s old titles, in return for his service to my father and I. I have a sour taste in my mouth to even utter such a vile name after all he did to my family and my kingdom. We had his body cast into the ocean and his head displayed in the town square for all to see his misdeeds. Macbeth left my villages, castle, and my people in shambles, he deserved any and all horrible things done to him after his death. May he never have the pleasure of entering the afterlife.
