Who Is Most To Blame For Macbeths Downfall I have chosen to write my essay about the cause of Macbeths downfall I believe Macbeth had an immense build up of hatred inside him waiting to be released I will discuss the possible factors that could have placed the final straw on the camels back and lead to the releasing of brave soldier Macbeths bloodthirst and why he committed the acts he did The first suspects are the witches After all it was their voices that implanted the thoughts into Macbeths head that he would be king When Macbeth heard this he figured that no matter what he did he would become the king After hearing King Duncans desire to have Malcom carry on the throne Macbeth quickly lost faith that he could achieve the throne without doing anything so he took it upon himself to make things happen After killing Duncan he feared Banquo for his knowledge of the witches prophecies and had him killed as well Macbeth seemed to be losing himself after Duncans death due to his obsession with the witches prophecies so in turn the witches could be partly responsible for Macbeths downfall Lady Macbeth can also be held accountable for Macbeths decline of sanity and power Although it didnt take much her persuasion lead to the killing of Duncan She wanted Macbeth to take the rank of king as much as he did Pressure from his spouse added on to all the other pressures from the prophecies also helped tempt Macbeth to murder Not only did her doings contribute to Macbeths turmoil but it also lead herself to become mad The character most guilty of Macbeths physical downfall would have to be Macduff He was the one that actually removed Macbeths head from his spine Also when Macduff left Macbeth became more ensnarled by his anger and responded by prooving himself a cold hearted savage when he had Macduffs innocent
