In every story there is always a protagonist one who we blame for whatever takes place In the play Macbeth there are many different views you can take as to who you should actually blame for the tragedy In my opinion despite popular belief I think that the supernatural was responsible When I say supernatural to me that includes the three witches Hecate and the forces of fate that Macbeth believes are on his side Let me explain The play begins with a brief description of what is going on in Scotland From what we can tell in the dialogue they describe Macbeth as being a noble and honorable man He is receiving praise from the king Duncan and he is being honored with a new title He is perceived to be a very reputable man and enters the play with a very highly regarded position But when he meets the witches and they foretell his future his esteemed character begins to deminish Without the encouragement of the witches and their push to believe in fate he would have never considered it Even if he wasnt sure of whether or not what they said was true he still had an overwhelming belief in fate that encouraged him to carry out his evil deeds True some might say that the burden of fault lies on Lady Macbeth and they are partly correct But if you really think about it without the encouragement of the witches she too would not have been inspired to bolster Macbeth into committing these horrendous crimes Another event that backs my argument is the fact that he might have been encouraged by his wife but in the end he still relied on the witches for their guidance This led to his unfortunate demise He became to confident in fate and relied on the witches so much that he was blinded by power It was this ignorance that led him to believe
