    Macbeth and Lady Macbeth's Ambition The driving force to achieve the Macbeths' goals was ambition. However, because they were solemnly ambitious at the same aptitude, it caused them not to fully achieve their goals, as one was always more or less ambitious than the other.

  • Witches And Lady Macbeth
    1,457 words
    After careful thought I do not agree with King Duncans death marks the beginning of Macbeths downfall. Shakespeare emphasises throughout the play that Macbeth has free will and can choose whether "Chance will crown me". I think his downfall began at the first meeting with the witches when he was "rapt withal" at the prospects they gave him. A major influence of the play was the new King James I. Shakespeare wished to compliment him so he carefully included James obsession with witches and some o...

  • End Of The Play Lady Macbeth

  • Macbeth Murders Duncan
    727 words
