William Shakespeare's Macbeth In Macbeth, look at the following scenes: Act one, scenes one, three and two, Act two, scene 2, Act four, scene 1 and Act five, scenes three, six and seven. What did Macbeth's character, actions and words show about changes in his character? Why are these scenes important to the plot and construction of the play and the way the themes are presented? The play Macbeth is all about a man whose rise to power and fall are affected by his own aspirations, with assistance from the supernatural. In the start of the play, Macbeth started off as a brave man, because he fought well in conflicts, the King praised him for his guts. This is revealed while the sergeant was explaining what was going on the battle. He clarified that Macbeth had fought well "For brave Macbeth, well he deserves that title" They know that he is brave and loyal. However, in the scene earlier, three withes were planning to use him to do evil. They must have known there was some thing else to Macbeth compared to bravery and loyalty; there was a strong ambitious side that they could prey off. Those two sides of Macbeth were shown together, the witches' scene (scene 1) was hinting Macbeth's dark rough side along with his vulnerability. Shortly after that scene was the scene with King Duncan stating how brave he was. The audience could get mixed messages and would not know what to consider Macbeth. The audience know more about Macbeth in scene since he really appears in the scene. It began with the witches telling each other about how they are going to kill a person's husband since she didn't give her any food. .
