Introduction

MacBeth Paper In this soliloquy, MacBeth's recognition scene, he offers the reader a very negative and dark worldview. In essence he says that: life is repetitive and boring, that man is puny and insignificant, and that life itself is rendered meaningless and absurd by the finality of death. MacBeth's worldview is extremely negative and pessimistic, and he sees no hope at all. Given the experience of life and literature, one might easily disagree with him and offer evidence to the contrary. MacBeth feels that life around him is repetitive and boring, when in reality, life is quite amazing around him. The beauty of life isn't going to smack you in the face, you have to search for it. ...read more.

Middle

MacBeth however fails to look for it, because he has no interest in what it will bring. He hates life. MacBeth spouts out that man is puny and insignificant. I find that comment very, very hard to believe. Why? Because even in his time, man was always trying to find better ways to do things, and even before Shakespeare's time, inventions and developments were being made all the time, one step at a time. Over the years, weapons continued to get stronger, more accurate, and powerful. More and more research and practice in health were being made, and less and less deaths to illness. ...read more.

Conclusion

Knowing you have lived a fulfilled life makes it easier leaving life. It's when we don't feel fulfilled that we doubt life and sometimes even death. There are many ways to feel fulfilled, such as helping others, or contributing to something that makes someone's day a little bit easier. MacBeth won a war for his King, but because he was blinded by his doubt, he couldn't see his good deeds. You cannot control life, so you might as well live it as best you can, because tomorrow could always be when death comes knocking. In conclusion, I whole-heartedly disagree with MacBeth's doubtful views on life. Life was meant to be lived one piece at a time and while we may not be able to control our fake, we can control out destiny. ...read more.
