Ambition Revealed in Macbeth

            If it's true that Shakespeare wrote Macbeth to teach readers the lesson that too much ambition how Macbeth had to become king is wrong, there would be enough reasons on why people might agree or disagree with what Shakespeare's exact message was for creating Macbeth, but the lesson of too much ambition I would agree with that. As for Nietzsche, who disagreed and said he claims Shakespeare actually admired Macbeth's ambition. I don't know if I would necessarily agree with Nietzsche, but I do believe that there are reasons why he feels the way he does. Nietzsche could be someone who enjoys how Macbeth achieved what he wanted with the heartless ambition he had.I would say that I agree more with Shakespeare creating his Macbeth, to teach us how wrong too much ambition can be, because to me there's always going to be consequences when having the ruthless ambition Macbeth had to become king and rise to power how he did. .
             Macbeth the most ambitious character in the play, is a ruthless king who has people killed so he can stay in power, this ambition represents violence in all ways. You look back to the beginning of the play at Macbeth was the kind of person who would never kill anyone for power. After his wife convinces him to kill Duncan, Macbeth life changed from that point on, every kill he commits from here on out would haunt him until his death and the guilt of the kills will destroy the relationship between Macbeth and his wife. Macbeth slowly became comfortable with killing people and does it with ease at this point. For example, after Macbeth became king he begins to worry about the second part of the witch's prophecy, when Banquo's sons become kings. Macbeth knowing he will not have any kids, he fears the idea "the seeds of Banquo kings. Rather to come fate into the list, and champion me to the utterance "(3.1.
