Macbeth is a play by William Shakespeare. Macbeth is a man who commits a series of
crimes because of persuation from his wife that will benefit mostly himself but also Lady
Macbeth. The play watches Macbeth as he decents into hell it also shows the conscious mind of
a murderer and how murder affects peoples minds.
At the beginning of the play Macbeth is a well respected warrior by everybody.
Macbeth is the thane of Glamis at the beginning of the play. Macbeth met the three witches on
the way home from a battle and they tell him that he will become thane of Cawdor and
eventually king and with Macbeth being superstitous he believes the witches. When he gets
home the king names him thane of Cawdor and after he tells his wife about the witches
predictions she persuades him to kill Duncan and blame it on the guards.
After they discover that
Duncan has been murdered his two sons split up so they wouldn't be killed. Then Macbeth
Later in the play Macbeth gets worried about Banquo because he thinks that Banquo
might figure out what Macbeth is doing and get Macbeth murdered for treason so Macbeth hires
three hitmen to kill Banquo which they did successfully also at the same time the third assassin
killed the other two assassin's.
Macbeth's conscience then got the best of him because he saw the 'ghost' of Banquo. It
wasn't really a ghost because everyone can see ghosts and Macbeth was the only one who really
saw Banquo. This shows that his mind was playing tricks on him because he felt guilty. To me his
feeling guilty showed that he still cared a little for those he loved but then again if he cared he
would stop killing them.
