In Shakespeare's play Macbeth the character Macbeth proves to be somewhat dynamic
in his human representation. He starts off as being very human; he is actually a war-hero.
However the seed of change is planted right away when he meets the witches and they tell
him their prophecy of him becoming king. This makes Macbeth ambitious, and it leads to
his demise. Once he kills Duncan the change rapidly begins to accelerate. By the end of the
play, and Macbeth's killing spree, his transformation is complete and all of his human
thoughts and feelings are gone. Macbeth changes from being a great individual to the
focus of everyone's fear and anger, because he loses his human characteristics of
conscience and remorse.
As the play starts Macbeth is very human; he has feelings and friends and he is a war-
hero. As time elapses, he begins to change into a ruthless killer, 'a tyrant'.
Once he meets
the witches and learns he will become king he begins to plot and think murderously. When
he arrived at a plot to kill Duncan, and told Lady Macbeth, he realized it was the only
way. However, in doing this he made a lot of people suspicious. This meant that more
people would have to be killed, and this included the king's son who was next in line for
the throne. At this point Macbeth experiences the first of a number of breakdowns, and he
begins to lose his human characteristics. Macbeth begins to fall into a murderous rage after
killing Duncan. He thought this would clear his name, but it only made things worse. Each
person he has killed results in another that needs to be killed. With each kill Macbeth
makes he loses feelings. Macbeth's conscience is soon deteriorated...
