The play Macbeth was written in 1606 by William Shakespeare Its about a brave Scottish general named Macbeth who receives a prophecy from three sinister witches The prophecy stated that he would be crowned king of Scotland this combined with Macbeths ambitious personality tempts him to murder the king Macbeths wife appears to be kind and gentle but she has underlying sinister intensions Macbeth eventually kills the king with help from his wife Shakespeare through the characters of Macbeth and Lady Macbeth demonstrates that appearances can be deceiving King Duncan trusts Macbeth too much He trusts Macbeth because of his heroic efforts like killing Macdonwald and winning the battle between the Scots and the Norwegians An example of Duncans trust would be when he goes to Macbeths Castle he says This castle hath a peasant seat the air Nimbly and sweetly recommends itself Unto our gentle senses Act I Scene 6 Lines 1-3 This quote shows that Duncan completely trusts Macbeth just prior to his murder Appearing to be noble and trustworthy then killing Duncan in his sleep proves that Macbeths appearance is deceiving Lady Macbeth is another example of how appearances are misleading Her physical appearance portrays her as a kind and gentle person Although when Macbeth briefly decided not kill Duncan Lady Macbeth is the reason he changed his mind She practically forced her husband to murder Duncan I believe that Lady Macbeth is equally responsible for the death of Duncan since she convinced Macbeth to murder him Unfortunately I learned that appearances can be deceiving through a friend I once had He always appeared to be there for me but when the time came for him to choose between helping me and helping himself he chose to help himself We had a Halloween party for our friends from school When it got out of control my so-called friend decided to continue drinking instead of helping me settle people
