Essay On Ambition In Macbeth
Lady Macbeth was no longer involved in the decisions of Macbeth’s life, decisions over which she formerly exercised total control.
She was left behind with no part in his life, as Macbeth heads off with new plans of his own.
Like seen the vision of the dagger, the ghost of Banquo, his vivid imagination and his constant worries also provokes him, this showed that he still has a conscience.
This was also evident in his terrible dreams, which gives the solid theme that he has indeed “Murdered sleep”.
What I want to say was that Macbeth was just morally weaker than other normal human beings such as Banquo, who have very little ambition, Macbeth should been more responsible for his own actions and not blaming his downfall on the witches and his wife.
Thanks to Lady Macbeth who acts as a ruthless, overpowering woman who dominates her husband and his actions.
