Who is responsible for Macbeths down fall there is no doubt that Macbeth is partly responsible for his own downfall but he is also influenced by Lady Macbeth and the Witches When Macbeth first meets the Witches Banquo notices that he is amazed by what they have to say and Banquo describes him as rapt withal and Macbeth tells them Stay you imperfect speakers Macbeth is already thinking of becoming King before he sees Lady Macbeth and addresses her in a letter as my dearest partner of greatness However when he sees her Macbeth starts to have doubts and it is unlikely that Macbeth would have killed Duncan without Ladys Macbeths powerful persuasion She taunts him by questioning his manhood and calling him a coward Before the murder Macbeth has doubts and thinks that he has no reason for killing Duncan apart from vaulting ambition After the murder Macbeth is tense and anxious and regrets what he has done saying Wake Duncan with thy knocking I would thou couldst After he is crowned King Macbeth becomes independent of Lady Macbeth and plans Banquo and Fleances murder alone He visits the Witches again and believes what they have to say and their prophecies cause him to send murderers to kill Macduffs family In conclusion Macbeth is partly to blame but he is greatly influenced by the Witches and his wife I think that he would not have carried out Duncans murder without her persuasion
