            The tragic story of Macbeth, by William Shakespeare follows the fall of our main chactor Macbeth. From a man of power, with a pleasant lifestyle, to a man with nothing but a corrupt soul and a dishonest conscience. The quote " Fair is foul, and foul is fair," clearly expresses the changes made by this character.
             In the beginning of the play Macbeth is a strong soldier who fights for the king and his country without mercy. He is a courageous general, and demonstrates it on many countless occasions. He strives for ambition and his curious nature leads him to the witches who give him a couple of prophecies. "All hail, Macbeth, hail to thee Thane of Glamis." " All hail, Macbeth, hail to the Thane of Cawdor." " All hail, Macbeth, that shalt be the king here after." ( Act 1, Scene 3, Witches to Macbeth.) Banquo realises that there must be a trick hidden in these prophecies, but Macbeth refuses to accept that factor. When Lady Macbeth finds out about the witches, her strong desire for ambition and cold nature leads Macbeth in a different direction. " Look like the innocent flower, but be the serpent under it." ( Act 1, Scene 5, Lady Macbeth to Macbeth.) He is a little ambitious, but his wife has the ability to manipulate him to kill the King Dunkan. " When you durst do it, then you were a man. And, to be more than what you were, you would. Be so much more than a man!" ( Act 1, Scene 7, Lady Macbeth to Macbeth.).
             It is evident that he has a conscience through out the entire play. Which is repersented by the hallucinations of the daggar, " Is this a daggar, which I see before me? The handle towards my hand? Come, let me clutch thee- ( Act 2, Scene 1, Nacbeth to Banquo.) and the ghost of Banquo. " I do forget. Do not muse at me, my worst worthy friend." ( Act 3, Scene 4, Macbeth to Lords.).
             Throughout the play we see the character of Macbeth change not only from just the way he thinks and what he hears, but also from his actions from killing Banquo, then having Lady Macduff and her family murdered.
