ChoicesIn The Tragedy of Macbeth by William Shakespeare characters often could not escape the consequences of their choices The choices that some characters made in the play put them in a position which they could not escape In most of these cases the character feels remorse for the choice they had made The characters that I will be concentrating on are Macbeth Macduff and Lady Macbeth These characters are the best examples of how characters could not escape their choices in the playThe actions of Macbeth during the play sometimes put him in a situation which he could not escape An example of this is when Macbeth murders Duncan After he does it he regrets it and is afraid to think about it This is shown in the quote I am afraid to think what Ive done look ont again I dare not50-51 Scene 2 Act 2 Another example is after Macbeth had Banquo killed and he sees Banquos ghost at the table He goes crazy and starts yelling at the ghost and he realizes that he cannot change what he has done so he tries to ignore it That same scene Lady Macbeth says Things without all remedy should be without regard whats done is done11-12 Scene 2 Act 3 These examples show how Macbeth cannot escape the choices he madeMacduffs allegiance to the country of Scotland leads to consequences which he cannot change Macduffs allegiance is shown when he left Scotland and his family to go to England There he met with Malcolm and started raising a army to overthrow MacbethThe result of this is the slaughtering of Macduffs wife and children by Macbeths menHe blames himself for their death and he knows he can do nothing to change it This is seen in the qoute Sinful Macduff They were all struck for thee Naught that I am Not for their own demerits but for mine fell slaughter on their souls Heaven rest
