deeds. Macbeth's ambition
and disobedience gets him killed. It is true that Macbeth is
given a prophesy to be King, and it is true that pressure
is applied by his wife, but his ambition is what kills him
in the end. Macbeth is a brave, good hearted man, who possesses
a weak mind which allows his ambition and the persuasion of
his wife to lead him down the wrong paths, ultimately leading
to his destruction.
