Alternativer Bildtext:

a play about a scottish general who, encouraged by his wife, murders the king in order to take the throne for himself and secures his position by murdering more people out of paranoia and guilt. Macbeth The Doctor (called by Lady Macbeth's gentlewoman) Lady Macbeth (Macbeth's wife and co-conspirator) encourages in mur der of Duncan arranges Banquo (warrior and Macbeth's friend) sighttime is of Macbeth (great warrior, later king of Scotland) confes Fleance.

Lady Macbeth also suffers from guilt, which leads to her death. Their guilt proves that neither Macbeth nor his wife fully enjoy their actions. Ambition Macbeth's downfall is his own ambition. once he killed Duncan, Macbeth becomes obsessed with maintaining the power he has won. Unlike Macbeth, Banquo's morals prevent him from pursuing his ambition. BIOOD Blood is everywhere in "Macbeth". It symbolises the guilt, unable to be washed away, just like a permanent stain. Blood is often connected to the feeling of guilt on the one hand and violence on the other hand. Betrayal Macbeth betrays Duncan by killing him in his sleep. He then arranges the murder of his friend Banquo. Macbeth's betrayal of his king and comrades ultimately lead to his downfall. Masculinity During the play, the characters always dwell on issues of gender. whenever they converse about manhood, Violence soon follows. True masculinity is expressed through brutality and power. But, Lady Macbeth's behaviour clearly shows that women can be as ambitious and cruel as men.
