Macbeth is seems to be a worthy and loyal thane, is he? He changes from what .
seems good to evil; however, he always has a little piece of evil creeping through his .
After the witches speak to him and Macbeth hears of his promotion to .
Thane of Cawdor, he even then contemplates the murder of Duncan. "My thought, whose .
murder is yet fantastical, shakes so my single state of man that function is smothered in .
surmise and nothing but what is not ". These tendencies are only thoughts for now, but .
Macbeth needs some more motivation to get him to believe the prophecy in fanatical .
Macbeth finishes the deed and .
kills Duncan. Although he hesitates somewhat he does receive the extra push he needs. .
This happens when Lady Macbeth shames him when is hesitates killing Duncan. "I go, .
and it is done. The bell invites me. Hear it not, Duncan, for it is a knell. That summons .
thee to heaven, or to hell." Macbeth further shows his emerging brutality to the man he .
once served and loved by suggesting that he may go to hell.
When Macbeth has Macduff's family slaughtered, he reaches the.
height of the evil within himself; "Seize upon Fife, give to the edge o" the sword his .
wife, his babes and all unfortunate souls that trace him in his line" He does this out of .
what seems to be spite because there is really no gain in killing Macduff's family since it .
is Macduff himself who is the problem.Yet this act of Macbeth's proves to do nothing .
morethan fuel the fires of Macduff's righteous rage.
Macbeth may have once been a worthy and honorable thane but the evil hiding .
inside him shows through and wins. Lady Macbeth and the witches may seem to be the .
evil ones but it is Macbeth himself who needs a small bit of prodding to let the evil which .
resides in him show.
