Shakespeares Macbeth as a Tragic Hero :: Macbeth essays
Macbeth as a Tragic genius   For Macbeth to be considered a Tragic Hero, he must eat some potential nobility, some good qualities that make his downfall terrifying. He must be examined as a kind-hearted being with human weaknesses. Is he one who, as Lady Macbeth says, Act I, Sc. v, is too generous of the milk of human kindness To catch the ne best way or is he the just nowcher that Malcolm considers him to be in the final scene of the run for? Or is he a victim of his ambition or of deterrent example weaknesses or of his limited concept of manliness, or even of a junto of circumstances that cause him to fall?

Does he show himself to be a materialist here, looking for success and closing his look to the fact that achievement and goodness do not necessarily go together? Is this what Lady Macbeth sees in him when she says in Act I, Sc. v, wouldst not prevail false And yet wouldst wrongly win? * Virtuous or pseud - He is aware of his duties as a subject ...and our duties Are to your quite a little and state children and servants, Which do but what they should, by doing every thing uninjured toward your love and honor. Is this an inclination of his virtue, or is it hypocrisy? * Conscience?
