Macbeth. Before we meet Macbeth , we form an opinion of him based on what other people say about him

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Macbeth tells a story of a brave strong warrior the king of Scotland becomes his successor by murdering him and then he's defeated. Before we meet Macbeth , we form an opinion of him based on what other people say about him for example; the king of Scotland Duncan says ; " O worthy gentlemen oh valiant cousin." This shows their related, well bred and worthwhile. And the bloody man says; " But all too weak for brave Macbeth well he deserves his name." This suggests he's a well known brave solider. Macbeth surprises us with his reaction to the witch's prophecies, because when they tell him he's: Thane of Glamis, Thane of Cawdor and shall be king. He's stunned and full of disbelief as he says; " A prosperous gentleman; and shall be king stand not within the prospect of belief." ...read more.

Middle

In act 1 sc IV we see more thoughts of murder as he thinks, I'm either going to have to step over him or give up because he's in my way. He's thinking this about the prince of Cumberland .now he thinks of the murder of Duncan and says; "stars, hide your light so no one can see the terrible desires within me. I won't let my eye look at what my hand is doing, but in the end I'm still going to do that thing I'd be horrified to see." He says he's going to do it but dose not want to she the things he'll do. We first see Lady Macbeth in act 1 sc v, we realise a few things about her she ambitious and influences Macbeth an awful lot "Glamis thou art, Cawdor and shall be what thou art promised." ...read more.

Conclusion

Lady Macbeth influences Macbeth in many ways the first way we see is that; she say was drunk and when he was he promised that he would kill Duncan. She tries to say that he doesn't love her, but by what he says and dose he loves her "my dearest partner in life." and then she trys to make out he's a coward, because he doesn't want to kill King Duncan. She says she would do it so why wouldn't he, she try to say he letting her down if he doesn't do it she tells him he'd be more attractive if he did it. She keeps saying if she'd made a promise she would have kept it. I conclude that lady Macbeth did influence him in some ways because she's the one who finally made him do it but overall I think it was both of them as he thought of murder before he even saw her. ...read more.
