FATE OF MACBETH Although Macbeth does take actions that lead to his downfall I believe that he is not totally responsible for what happens Although he takes the actions he would not have done this if the witches had not told him that he would be king in Act I Scene iii I believe that it is the witches are more responsible for the downfall of Macbeth The witches introduce Macbethss fate At the beginning of the play they plan to meet with Macbeth and they say Fair is foul and foul is fair Hover through the fog and filthy air This line shows foreshadowing it makes the audience know that something unfair and evil will occur When they meet Macbeth they greet him first as Thane of Glamis then as Thane of Cawdor and then as king The moment Macbeth hears this he is confused but curious why these witches had called him king After he knows that he became Thane of Cawdor he believes that sooner or later he will be king The three witches suggested his destiny Macbeths goal was not to become king until the witches made him believe it was his destiny In the play Macbeths destiny was paved out by the witches Destiny is not something that can be changed A person has control of hisher destiny Macbeths destiny was suggested by the witches he listened to their suggestions and followed them In Act I Scene iii the witches tell Macbeth that he is Thane of Glamis Thane of Cawdor and that he shalt be king hereafter Immediately after hearing the witches prophecies that he will be king Macbeth thinks that he must kill the current king to become king
