Shakespeare Essay Although people have a mind of their own and are responsible for their own actions it is through outside influences which give them the sheer potential to do the unpredictable This is exactly what is portrayed in the play Macbeth written by William Shakespeare Macbeth cannot be considered guilty as it was the devious plot of the three witches and his ambitious wife that were the obvious influences for his actions In addition due to his inconsistent mental condition he could not clearly realise the consequences for his actions This analytical essay will try to support and verify each of these points It is indeed obvious that the prophecies of the three witches ended up becoming real events through their absolute power In the beginning Macbeth realises their supernatural abilities and in his letter to Lady Macbeth he states They met me in the day of success and I have learned with perfectest report that they have more in them than mortal knowledge Act I Scene V Upon reading this Lady Macbeth too recognises their capabilities and idea for their prophecy Therefore all these events were destined to happen and it was most likely due to the connection of the three witches In spite of this Macbeth would not have killed Duncan if the witches hadnt told him the prophecy Although Macbeths fate may not justify that he was responsible for his actions his gullible nature eliminates him to be accounted for murder In Act I Scene VII Macbeth shows that he does not want to be involved in any further unfaithful deeds well proceed no further in the business It is at this point in time where Lady Macbeth becomes annoyed and shows that the murder was not entirely his idea She constantly tries to persuade him saying From this time Such I account thy love Art thou afeard To be in the same in thine own act
