Evidence that Macbeth is becoming more like the witches.

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Macbeth. Evidence that Macbeth is becoming more like the witches. Evidence that Macbeth is becoming more like the witches is that whenever Macbeth needs help he will go to the witches for help. Instead of trusting his wife. Also whenever he talks about something he talks like the witches. Also he always does whatever he can to make whatever prediction the witches make come true. As he thinks they are right about everything as they predicted that he would become king. And he has but not of natural means e.g. being next in line of the throne, but by killing this was due to what the witches had said so obviously the witches are not good for him and are not telling him what is going to happen fully. ...read more.

Middle

Also in previous scene at the beginning of all of this when the witches met Macbeth and Banquo and told him that he would be king (Macbeth) and said to Banquo that your children will be next in line to become king. How could this be when Banquo's children aren't even related to Macbeth and aren't his children. So obviously one of them would have to kill Macbeth to become king. So it is obvious that if Macbeth had thought about it before jumping in that this is what happened to me before so how can the second apparition be true so the witches are lying. Reasons for Macbeth's decision for killing Macduff's family. Reasons for Macbeth's decision for killing Macduff's family are that when Macbeth went to the witches and asked them to tell him what is going to happen next to him in his reign as king. ...read more.

Conclusion

Macbeth then thanks them for that apparition and asks for one more word of advice. The witches then say he will not be commanded but her comes another apparition this one is more detailed/ useful than the previous one. In this apparition says 'Be bloody, bold and resolute; laugh to scorn the power of man, for none of women born shall harm Macbeth'. This apparition is saying be bloody and resolute and scorn the power of man and no one born from a women will harm Macbeth. Basically saying that in your path of leader ship kill any known threat and don't worry about it also that do so as no one can harm Macbeth. These two apparitions lead Macbeth to kill Macduffs family as he needs to kill them to save him self from loosing his throne. Also if he does kill Macduff he will guarantee that the fate of the second apparition will keep its promise. ...read more.
