Dramatic Changes in Macbeth

            In the play Macbeth by William Shakespeare, Macbeth demonstrates that he is a dynamic character by the changes he experiences. One of the things that made this play so interesting is the fact that the characters change dramatically. They become into the most unexpected person you thought they were. Throughout the five acts, Macbeth changes from being loyal, to ambitious, guilty and finally into a sociopath. At first Macbeth starts out as being loyal because he was a great soldier in war. However, it does not last long because he becomes ambitious to have more power. The reason for this is because the witches tell him "All hail, Macbeth, hail to thee, thane of Cawdor!"(1.3.45). After hearing the prophecy, Macbeth immediately becomes ambitious. On my creative project I decided to draw a picture of Macbeths imagination. I drew King Duncan naming Macbeth Thane of Cawdor because it is what he imagines and dreams of happening when the witches tell him about the prophecy.
             The second shift in Macbeth is when he becomes guilty for killing King Duncan. At this point, Macbeth was already convinced by Lady Macbeth to kill him. This causes him to feel very guilty, but also to kill the two guards to eliminate any possible witnesses. When he comes back with his hands covered in blood he tells Lady Macbeth that he thinks he "heard a voice cry 'Sleep no more! Macbeth does murder sleep', the innocent sleep," (2.2.35-37). Meaning that he murdered sleep by killing Duncan in his sleep. I incorporated this into my project by drawing a picture of the scene when Macbeth kills Duncan while he sleeps. If you look close, Macbeths face looks very worried and he is sweating from guilt.
             The last change that Macbeth went through in the play is when he becomes a sociopath. Since Macbeth started wanting to kill everybody, it means he has no conscience, therefore making him a sociopath. It makes Macbeth angry that Macduffs loyalties do not lie with him so he sends murderers to kill his "His wife, his babes, and all unfortunate souls that trace him in his line" (4.
