How I will present the character of Macbeth

Extracts from this document...


How I will present the character of MacBeth. My first impressions of MacBeth are positive. He is loyal to his king and he serves his country well. He is a fantastic warrior and he played a big part along with Banquo in helping the scottish army win against MacDonald and the norwegians. This is proven when the captain says, "But all's too weak for brave MacBeth." This obviously shows MacBeth as positive because he is presented by the captain as heroic, brave and strong.

MacBeth also knows he is evil himself and is not in denial, he is not what he used to be. It is show he knows he is evil when he says, "Stars hide your fires, let light not see my black deep desires."

The stars will only illuminate what he feels and he doesn't want his "black and deep desires" to be known or his "desires" will be known. He is intrigued by the witches predictions, he wants to be king. He is excited by the prediction yet he must not let it show,especially to Banquo who is such a moral and upright man. ...read more.
