In this ever before dynamic world, little or nothing appears to be unchangeable except our mighty God. Any force, internal or external, causes one's dynamics to change. It might be a big change in physical or psychological, either way, change is inevitable to oneself. Inside the Shakespearean play Macbeth, mental changes come in the type of Macbeth himself. Macbeth goes through three major figure transformations throughout the play. First, Macbeth paid high reverence to Ruler Duncan until Macbeth became aware of the witches' first three prophecies which unleashed his inner bad and made him ambitious enough to crave for the King's throne. Second, Macbeth who hated the very thought of murder was not in a position to defy his wife's evil prodding which led him to become a ruthless killer. Third, because of Macbeth's overwhelming desire to become king, he quit his moral beliefs and engrossed himself in wrongdoings such as murder. Through analyzing the scenes and examining the quotations from the play, I'll prove that as a result of witches' prophesies, his wife's prodding, and his ambition to become a ruler, Macbeth who was once a noble and honorable man was converted into a merciless immoral brute.
The first push that changed Macbeth into a dreadfully ambitious man was the witches' first three prophecies. The first prophecy "All hail, Macbeth, hail to thee, Thane of Glamis!" (Shakespeare, 1997, p. 17) was of Macbeth's knowledge since he knew that by Sinel's loss of life, he will become a thane of Glamis. This prophecy added to the actual fact that the witches might be sharing with the truth. The second and third prophecies "All hail, Macbeth, hail to thee, thane of Cawdor! All hail, Macbeth, that shalt be Ruler hereafter!" (Shakespeare, 1997, p. 17) were somewhat implausible to Macbeth for he thought to the witches "The Thane of Cawdor lives, A prosperous gentleman, and also to be Ruler stands not within the chance of notion, " (Shakespeare, 1997, p. 18). Later, Macbeth pondered on the actual witches had uncovered until Ross enlightened Macbeth that he was going to be known as the new Thane of Cawdor. Macbeth started to get lured in to the possible truth of the witches' predictions. Then, when King Duncan announced Malcolm as his heir, Macbeth thought to himself, "Stars, cover your fires! Let not light see my dark-colored and deep desires; the attention wink at the hand; yet let that be which the eye fears, when it's done, to see, " (Shakespeare, 1997, p. 22). Which means that he'd do anything, good or wicked just so he may take above the King's thrown. Clearly, the witches' first three prophecies spurred Macbeth's lust for ability which made him unjustly ambitious.
The second force was his wife's wicked prodding which led Macbeth to become a murderer. Woman Macbeth after reading Macbeth's notice planned to assassinate Duncan to make sure the completion of the prophecies but feared that Macbeth "is too packed with the dairy of individuals kindness" (Shakespeare, 1997, p. 23) to perform the deed. Macbeth who hated the thought of murder, struggled over whether to destroy Duncan for murder itself was a terrible deed. Macbeth thought to himself, "He's here in dual trust, First, when i am his kinsman and his subject matter, Strong both resistant to the deed, then, as his coordinator, Who should against his murderer shut the entranceway, Not bear the knife myself, " (Shakespeare, 1997, p. 28). This proved that Macbeth agonized on the idea of assassinating Duncan. Female Macbeth taunted Macbeth for his anxieties and that he was "Like the poor kitten in the adage" (Shakespeare, 1997, p. 29). Girl Macbeth then challenged Macbeth and reassured him by expressing, "screw your courage to the sticking-place and we'll not are unsuccessful, " (Shakespeare, 1997, p. 29). Macbeth was astounded by his wife's wickedness yet performed the deed in regards to what had been designed. After that, because of his wife's bad prodding, Macbeth who hated the thought of murder could assassinate Duncan.
The third make that induced Macbeth to change from a moral man to a wicked brute is his growing desire to have power. Macbeth's immoral acts started when he and Female Macbeth plotted the murder of Duncan which Macbeth later performed. His ambition spiraled out of control and forced him to murder over and over to cover up his previous crimes. His desire for vitality led him to destroy a great many other innocent people in the play. First, Macbeth killed the chamberlains to hide the deed he did and defended himself by saying "Who is able to be wise, surprised, temperate and furious, devoted and natural, in an instant? No man, " (Shakespeare, 1997, p. 45). Second, when Macbeth was called the new King of Scotland, he feared that Banquo's living might be considered a danger to his throne. Banquo recognized about the wants three prophecies and Macbeth feared that Banquo might suspect him of Duncan's murder. Therefore Macbeth purchased the murderers to wipe out Baquo. Third, when Macbeth found out about Macduff's treachery, he plotted another assassination that was noticeable when Macbeth said "The castle of Macduff I'll surprise, Seize after Fife, give to the border of the sword his better half, his babes, and all regrettable souls that trace him in his collection, " (Shakespeare, 1997, p. 80). These evil deeds were triggered by Macbeth's budding ambition for electricity which made him deceitful and ruthless.
In final result, though Macbeth was once a praise-worthy thane, because of the witches' predictions, his wife's wicked encouragements, and his mind-boggling wish to rule Scotland, Macbeth became an awful immoral killer which damaged his ethical beliefs that he was once possessed. The witches' three prophecies awaken Macbeth's desire for electric power. Then, his wife's prodding led Macbeth to execute Duncan which made him a killer. Finally, because of Macbeth's ambition, he murdered those he thought was a risk to his throne which made him immoral. Like Macbeth, we all have our very own ambitions, but why don't we not be blinded by these dreams for in the end only 1 thing is for certain, ambition, when overly taken, destroys its possessor.
