Macbeth is of high estate

"what he hath lost noble Macbeth hath won"(1.2.95) -king Duncan meaning- This is one of the many quotes of Duncan praising, and honoring Macbeth. It is also a quote that shows to the viewer that Macbeth is of high estate. Duncan also labels him as "fair" and "noble" leading to him being appointed the Thane of cawdore

Macbeth's tragic flaw

Macbeth has one problem, and that is his grueling ambition. He is relentless when it comes to the completion of his goals, undermining the harsh punishments he could, and will face. the ambition slowly eats away Macbeth, and his wife's morals leaving their hands red of blood. "The Prince of Cumberland! That is a step On which I must fall down, or else o'erleap, For in my way it lies. Stars, hide your fires; Let not light see my black and deep desires; The eye wink at the hand; yet let that be Which the eye fears, when it is done, to see" (1.5.48-53). His surging Ambition leads to his certain death


"screw your courage to the stinking-place, and we will not fail" -Lady Macbeth. She is his motivation and drive to get the job done. Without her urging and testing his manliness, he would have never been so urgent to murder.

unreliable information

"All hail Macbeth! Hail to thee, Thane of Cawdor" -3 witches. This quote is the spark that lights up Macbeth's ambition, leading to his certain death. The witches used mind-games and trickery to begin Macbeth's trail of blood and eventually his own death.


death plays a crucial role in this story. Macbeth, blinded by scorching ambition, kills his enemy's to grow stronger. By him killing Duncan, it sets a long road of blood that eventually leads to his fate. "the nights great business" -Macbeth

gradual isolation

"of all men else i have avoided thee. But get thee back! My soul is too much charged with the blood of the dready." -Macbeth This shows his conscious under the thick layer of blood. He understands that he is bound to die for his ambition.


"And let the angel who still hast served tell thee, Macduff was from his mothers womb untimely ripped." This quotation opposes Macbeth's vision portrait by the witches. They tricked him by testing his knowledge, which led him to have absolutely no fear of anyone. It made Macbeth complacent, then vulnerable to Macduff who was not born normally.

Understanding of flaw

"accused be tongue that tells me so for it hath cowed my better man." He was told by someone of higher power, he understood his problem but the blood trail was too thick, and he was too far gone to save himself and his hope of a future.

death of a tragic hero

"Then live, Macduff: what need I fear of three?" Macbeth (Act IV, Scene 1, Line 85) this quote shows that Macbeth is complacent, which made him feel immortal. He never knew that his senses were wrong.

Restoration of order

"Hail king for thou art" the quote shows the witches' prophecy coming to life after al of the gruesome bloodshed and trickery of the previous events.
