Macbeth's Journey Hannah bridgers & Dawson Grimes
Gains Sense of Urgency- feels the need to "hurry up and do things"~ Quote- For Banquo's Issue I have field my mind, for them the gracious Duncan I have murdered.(3.1.65-66) ~ The meaning of this quote is to show that Macbeth believes he must hurry up and do the deed. He has hurried to kill Duncan or else he worries he may never do it.
Recognition of tragic flaw but too late- "I am in blood stepped in so far that should i wade no more returning were as tedious as goo'er."(3.4.136-138) Macbeth is stating that is he to far gone to return. It is better to keep going in this blood trail then to try to go back because he is to far deep. You cannot take back what was already done so now its just as easy to keep killing.
Restoration of the natural order of things- "Hail king of Scotland" (5.8.59) At the end of the story the people shout hail king of Scotland because Macbeth is no longer in charge and killing people but now Malcolm is king, which is how the kingdom was originally suppose to be passed down. He is the rightful king.
