Macbeths Downfall Fair is foul and foul is fair Hover through the fog and filthy air Act 1 Scene 112-13 This quote is interesting to me because it is an oxymoron Its impossible how fair can be foul when fair is equal or mild and foul is gross and rotten Its significance is that the witches delight in the confusion of good and bad beauty and ugliness In the play Macbeth by William Shakespeare a character or fate This of these two forces external or internal led to the downward fall of a great military hero and worthy thane Macbeth Macbeth turning evil and murderous when led astray by the prophecies of three old witches Some argue that Macbeth is the victim of fate while others argue that his character choose his downfall The argument for fate is strongly led by the actions of others with Lady Macbeth being the major influence on Macbeth While the conflict is led by Macbeths troubled conscience his own internal conflict and his tragic flaw It is clearly visible that Macbeths own character is at fault for his tragic downfall It is the opinion of many that Macbeth is a victim of fate Macbeth is heavily influenced by his overpowering wife Lady Macbeth Macbeth decides that he cannot kill Duncan as he is his kinsman and his subject Act 1 Scene 7 13 yet Lady Macbeth taunts him saying I have given suck and know how tender tis to love the babe that milks me I would while it was smiling in my face have pluckd my nipple from his boneless gums And dashd the brains out had I so sworn as you have done to this Act 1 Scene 7 54-59 This graphic view of the extent to which Lady Macbeth would go to keep a promise would have been more accepted in our society than in that of Shakespeare In the days of Shakespeare women
