Macbeth's Tragic Journey By: Masta Caleb & Lil Sammi

Journey of a Tragic Hero

Step 1- A protagonist of High Estate

" All hail, Macbeth! Hail to thee, Thane of Cawdor!" (1.2.49) He is shown as a protagonist with a high honor in this quote. Being a Thane is a high Honor.

2. Has a Tragic Flaw

"I have done the deed" (1.2.14) Macbeth does whatever possible to be the King, his tragic flaw.

3. Gains a sense of Urgency

"Well then now have you considered my speeches?" (3.1.75) In this quote, Macbeth is pressuring the murderers to kill Banquo because he is desperate to have Banquo gone. (Macbeth thinks Banqou is a threat to his throne)

4. Misreads Info

"Macbeth! Macbeth! Macbeth! Beware Macduff!" (4.1.71) Macbeth took this info (from the witches) and decided to kill Macduff's family.

5. Murder

"There is blood upon thy face." (3.4.13) He has killed Banquo

6. isolation

"He grows worse and worse as question enrages him: at once, good night. Stand not upon the order of your going But go at once" This means Macbeth cannot stop so now he has to keep going with his life.
" Hang out our banners on the outward walls, the cry is still "they come" Our castle's strength will laugh a siege to scorn" This means that Macduff and Malcolm lay siege on Macbeth's castle.
" If thy speech be sooth, I care not thou dost for me as much I pull in resolution" He keeps thinking about how everything he did could be changed."
" They say he parted well and paid his score" This means Macbeth's head was cut off and he was even with the people he had killed.
" Hail King! for so thou art: behold, where stands Th' usuppers cursed head. The time is free" This is when Malcolm becomes King
