Macbeth by William Shakespeare is a wicked display of one mans weaknesses and the forces that possess him Macbeth was gullible and single-minded He was obsessed with the throne which became his ultimate goal The witches were misleading with their ambiguous predictions because they wanted to disrupt the order of the hierarchy The witches and the powers that they represented roused Macbeth to the kingship and eventually to his death Macbeth just like anybody else had some weaknesses He was a gullible and a very single-minded person He always thought of himself as being better than the rest So he found nothing wrong with the witches forecasts of him becoming the king of Scotland All hail Macbeth Hail to thee thane of Glamis All hail Macbeth That shalt be king hereafter This was all part of the witches plan They knew that Macbeth was both single-minded and gullible and took full advantage of it Macbeth let these predictions go to his head and he expected King Duncan to make him the next in line for the throne When this didnt happen Macbeth saw no other alternative than to murder King Duncan Due to the witches forecasts Macbeth thought he deserved the throne almost like it was meant to be Macbeths clear thought of reasoning became clouded as his ego increased He no longer knew the difference between right and wrong He was being guided by supernatural powers It was the witches power that persuaded Macbeth to kill Duncan They enabled him to see a floating dagger that lead him directly into Duncans chamber where he committed the murder As the play progresses Macbeth became more dependent on the witches and their predictions He insisted that they tell him more about what his future holds This request is the witches chance to further mislead Macbeth Be bloody bold and resolute laugh to scorn The power of man for none of woman
