EVIL MACBETH Darkness in our society is indicative of evil. For instance, a black cat, a dark night, a dark place are all symbols of evil. There are only a few good people out there today. In Macbeth William Shakespeare proves to us that there is evil in all of us but in the end the good triupths. In this play the main character Macbeth and his wife Lady Macbeth represent evil the king and queen of Scotland become murderers and the most hated people. The evilness in them brigs out the good in other characters in the play. In the beginning of the play Macbeth is a strong soldier who fights for the King without mercy, but his strive for ambition and his curious nature leads him to the Witches who give him the 3 prophecies. They are that he will become the thane of Glamis, thane of Cawdor and the king of Scotland. " All hail, Macbeth! Hail to thee, thane of Glamis All hail, Macbeth! Hail to thee, thane of Cawdor All hail, Macbeth! That shalt be king hereafter."(I, III, l. 50-53) Soon after the meeting with the witches Macbeth realises that he is the thane of Glamis and the thane of Cawdor. He realises that the only way for the 3rd prophecy to come true is to kill Duncan the king of Scotland. So Macbeth and his wife decide to kill Duncan and Macbeth becomes the king. He then decides he should kill Banquo because he could betray him, the witches said that Banquo would be the father to the line of kings and that means Macbeth will not be king for a long time. The murder of Banquo lead to Macbeth's downfall. Lady Macbeth an evil and weak woman made her husband kill Duncan, the king of Scotland at the time. With her words and her love for her husband she changed his mind. Besides who would ever suspect them as being the murderers. " Art thou afeared to be the same ion thine own Act and valour as thou art in desire? Woulds thou Have that which thou esteem's the ornament of life. And live a coward in thine own esteem, letting I dare not Wait, wait upon I would, like the poor cat I the adage.
