MacBeth

Everyone who is mortal has at least one flaw. Some are more serious than
others. For example, some people have addictions to gambling, while other
people can't remember to put the milk away after they use it. After a while
though, a person's flaws come back to haunt them. The tragedy MacBeth is no
exception to this. In it, many of the character's die. And the reason is
that they have a flaw, that would eventually lead to their downfall. Not
every character is deserving of his fate though. Some characters have a
minor flaw, which shouldn't lead to their death. But other's have a major
flaw, which is would eventually lead them to their death anyway. The first
Thane of Cawdor, is killed by MacBeth for trying to lead a revolution
against England. His fatal flaw was that he was according to Ross, "a
disloyal traitor". The thane of Cawdor was greedy, and wanted the throne of
England for himself, and as a result was murdered. But his murder wasn't
really disheartening, because the Thane of Cawdor, deserved his fate. He
was leading a battle, in which many lost their lives, for the sake of
greed, and deserved to die because of his flaw. Duncan was the King of
England, and was murdered by MacBeth. He was murdered, because in order for
MacBeth to fulfill his plan and become king, Duncan would have to die.
Duncan's fatal flaw was that he was too trusting. For example, he thought
that none of his friends could really be enemies. If Duncan was more
careful about his safety at MacBeth's castle, he may have had a chance to
survive. But Duncan's flaw, wasn't something so horrible that he should
die. Most people need to trust each other more, and just because one person
did, he shouldn't have to die. MacBeth's former best friend, Banquo was
also killed by MacBeth. Banquo was killed, because he knew too much about
the murder of Duncan. But that was not his fatal flaw. Banquo's fatal flaw
was that although he knew that MacBeth killed Duncan, he really didn't do
anything about it. There were many opportunities where Banquo could tell
someone such as MacDuff what he thought about the murders. But Banquo
didn't deserve death, just because he didn't act quickly in telling someone
that MacBeth killed Duncan. Banquo knew that if he said anything, no one
would believe him, and he would be executed. Lady MacBeth is MacBeth's
wife. She is his coconspirator in killing Duncan. Although she helps
MacBeth get the courage to commit the murder, she isn't willing to do it
herself. She uses the excuse that Duncan looked too much like her father.
Unlike MacBeth though, it is harder for Lady MacBeth to live with the fact
that she helped cause the murder of the king. And in the end, it makes her
so crazy that she commits suicide. Whether or not Lady MacBeth deserved her
fate is a tricky question. Although she did encourage MacBeth to murder
Duncan, she feels regret for her action. Also, she realized what she did
was wrong. But in my opinion, she realized it a little too late, and Duncan
was still dead so she did deserve her fate. MacBeth was the focus of the
entire play, and that's why it was named after him. All of the problems
start when he murder's Duncan. He commits the murder because of his fatal
flaw, he is too ambitious. If he wasn't so ambitious and determined to be
king, then he would never have killed Duncan. And if MacBeth didn't kill
Duncan none of the other characters would die. MacBeth deserved his fate
more than any other characters in the play. He did many things wrong. First
he killed Duncan, then he killed Banquo. After that, MacBeth killed
MacDuff's family. And worst of all, MacBeth disturbed the balance of
nature. Also, MacBeth didn't feel any remorse until he was faced with
death. If MacBeth just waited for his time, he would have been king, and
have had a chance to enjoy it. Every character that died in MacBeth had one
fatal flaw. The first Thane of Cawdor was a traitor. Duncan was too
trusting. Banquo didn't do anything about the knowledge he had. Lady
MacBeth helped plot the murder of Duncan. And MacBeth, destroyed the
natural order and harmony of nature. But not all of the characters who died
deserved to die because of their flaws. Duncan shouldn't have been punished
for trusting someone, and Banquo would have said something, but was waiting
for the right time or some physical evidence. But if MacBeth hadn't been so
ambitious, none of the problems that
