How far is the tragedy of Macbeth also Lady Macbeths tragedy The tragic play Macbeth can be observed in many different ways Some producers of film or theatre show it as an action-packed thriller such as Roman Polanskis film of Macbeth Another interpretation is to focus on the way in which Macbeths mind works and how he thinks This is the way I view Macbeth as it is a tragedy Macbeths ambition is the cause of his own tragic downfall However Macbeth is not the only person responsible for the tragedy The witches influence his evil actions and his wife also is persistent and ambitious for her husband The play Macbeth introduces Macbeth to the readers as a very noble and good-natured man This is very important that we understand and remember him and his character as the whole tragedy is based on the fall of the life of a great man After the three mysterious witches visit Macbeth he writes a letter to his wife Lady Macbeth telling her of their prophecy They predict that soon Macbeth will become Thane of Cawdor and in future will even become king Lady Macbeth is made out to be a very powerful woman who overpowers Macbeth When she receives the letter from her husband she decides he will be king and she is also going to help him succeed All Hail Macbeth that shalt be king hereafter However she fears Macbeth is too noble and decent to commit murder so she decides to encourage Macbeth with her own strong mentality this shows she is a determined character She calls upon the evil spirits for courage and to help with her murderous plans This must mean she lacks in her own mental strength to carry out the murder of the King Fill me from the crown to the toe topfull of direst cruelty make thick my blood King Duncan comes and stays over night with Macbeth
