Introduction

Jung Hwan Park English2 SL A Strong Will Deep Inside Your Heart What would you do to become a king of your country? There are many ways, such as earning the king's and the people's trust to be appointed, etc... In the play Macbeth, a king's loyal soldier chooses to kill the king. This is a story of Macbeth trying to overcome reality by using his immorality. William Shakespeare, the author of Macbeth, uses blood imagery, the witches, and sleep imagery to emphasize the guilty feelings of Macbeth, which helps the readers to realize that ambition can be a dangerous part of your life. The image of "blood" shows the guilty feelings of Macbeth and the fact that with guilty feelings inside you, there will never be a 'happily ever after'. "We still have judgement here; that we but teach bloody instruction, which, being taught, return to plague the inventor." (I, vii, 9), shows the awareness of Macbeth of the guilt he has made will haunt him afterwards through his life. This actually foreshadows a part later in the play, when the ghost of Banquo appears in front of Macbeth, making him feel guiltier about what he has done. ...read more.

Middle

That shalt be king hereafter!" (I, iii, 48-49-50). By telling what Macbeth will become, Macbeth begins to think about his future, and from this point, Macbeth thinks that his ambition can become reality not by over time, but if he kills king Duncan. Later on in the play, the witches tell Macbeth to "be bloody, bold and resolute", and to "laugh to scorn the power of man", because "none of woman born shall harm Macbeth." (IV, I, 79-81). Because of the fact that all human being is born from a woman, Macbeth feels comfortable, and self-confident. The witches also tell Macbeth, to "be lion mettl'd, proud", and to "take no care who chafes, who frets, or where conspirers are", because "Macbeth shall never vanquish'd be until Great Birnam Wood to high Dunsinane Hill shall come against him." (IV, I, 90-94). Macbeth feels even more confident in himself because it's impossible for Great Birnam Wood to actually move up to Dunsinane Hill. Despite the fact that Macbeth is already feeling guilty, the riddles from the witches help Macbeth to feel confident in himself, but also tells the readers of how much dangerous one's ambition can be. ...read more.

Conclusion

William Shakespeare, the author of this tragic play, uses blood imagery, sleep imagery, and the witches to emphasize the guilty feelings of Macbeth, which helps the readers to realize that ambition can be a dangerous part of your life. Hitler, who was once one of the most powerful man on Earth, used his ambition to create a basis of World War II and to conquer the world. But in the end, instead of taking over the world, he committed a suicide. The tragedy didn't just end there, he also left many people lose their family, their home, and also their hopes... Like we've seen throughout this tragic play, every each one of us has the ambition to become a better person, and to live a better life. But that doesn't mean that somebody will give whatever you want or let you to be whoever you want to be. Life is full of difficulties and troubles; and you'll have to face reality and work hard, devote yourself into it to fulfill your ambition. If you use your ambition to create chaos and terror, you might end up being in a dangerous situation like Macbeth, or even get killed just like him... ...read more.
