Shakespeare is well known for the plays and sonnets he has written Although he has written many he somehow manages to develop a somewhat different story line for each of them Between Timon of Athens and Macbeth there are many differences and similarity The characters theme and setting differ in several ways In Macbeth the characters are much like those from the Timon of Athens because of their devious behavior In Macbeth the Macbeths are rather selfish and very devious in the sense that they planned the murder of the king in order to gain power fame and wealth In the Timon of Athens Timon is seeking revenge upon the people of Athens because of their greed towards him when he was in need of help Timon was generous and was wealthy and spent his fortune and when he needed help the people shunned him and then he discovered gold and returned to seek revenge The difference in the characters is that the in Macbeth the people were greedy and even when Timon had helped him prior to his debt they refused him and turned his servants away when they asked for help The people in Macbeth would have helped them if in the same situation The plots are much alike but very different in their own way In the Timon of Athens Timon is rich then poor then rich again this shows a lesson in life that Shakespeare wanted to teach his readers Timon was generous and helped people but did that people really care enough to give back when the time came The people of Athens Garcia 2 didnt give back to him in greed they held back their money and watched him leave town into the forest In Macbeth they plot the murder of the king in order for Macbeth to become king afterwards but it all comes back at the end when the guilt eats them alive when they are
