“Treasonous ambition in Macbeth collides with loyalty and patriotism in Macduff and Malcolm: here is the outward conflict” (Bradley 13).
Malcolm is Duncan’s eldest son and the legitimate heir to the throne.
Glory is always a harbinger and a possible source of vanity.
Macbeth meets witches and receives prophecies, one of which says that he will become king of Scotland.
Without such qualities, he may not be worthy of the respect of his subjects.
Besides the royal power and the struggle for it quite often provided examples for rampant violence and distrust.
Macbeth’s character is not merely a negative hero betraying for a useful purpose.
Several forces are acting on him which show the development of its ambitious plans and at the end dispersion of the soul.
After this starting point, when destiny seduces the general “Macbeth has begun to hear another language – the language of magic, bad magic, of murder, specifically one great act of murder, regicide, the killing of the king, in Shakespeare that cataclysmic act, that crime against the state, against the soul and against the self” (Mc Guinness, Frank).
Lady Macbeth tempts the central figure of narrative to awaken in it a whirlwind of ambition that pushes him to conquer fate as quickly as possible by going to grave sin, murder, and betrayal.
