The ambition of Macbeth was to be the king of Scotland which engulfs all the purity presented inside him. One of the major factors for feeling sympathy of Macbeth is that he cannot have children. Not having any children also can be the reason that makes the desperate Lady Macbeth kill Duncan. Macbeth was just a victim in that case which also made the readers have sympathy toward Macbeth. Never any person considers Macbeth as a selfish person or a murderer; he was tortured by his wife and the witches throughout the story which forced him to deal with the occurrences around him.
The most significant points which can make readers sympathetic to Macbeth is that as per the story, he was not directly responsible for the happenings but he was still guilt for that. His wife Lady Macbeth also attempted suicide and left him forever only because she was not able to handle the guilt feeling and it was also showing sympathy to him (Shakespeare and Muir, 2013). Macbeth was very much confident, and he was eligible to go to any extent to achieve his superiority. To gain the social status and being the king of Scotland, he adopted all the influences given by his wife and the witches.
In Macbeth, the supernatural provides some characters- there are two central characters Macbeth and Lady Macbeth and also Banquo. In the Macbeth, the Witches directly catalyze the negative factor in Macbeth’s mind that motivates him into the action. In this play, Shakespeare presents the overspreading evil influence over the sharp and guilty minds which leads Macbeth to commit the most disloyal affect not in the family but the universe as well. It provides the necessary courage and morality in the series which defeat the evil and renovate the natural order of things. It endeavors the various points of view from which this evil can understand. It shows Macbeth’s transformation from a real person to a bad figure.
At the opening of the play, evil forces approached to Macbeth unwillingly. Macbeth, the hero, stands as a perfect embodiment of the disintegration of an individual under the power of evil. In the play, there are many such scenes where Macbeth interacts with the other people and the nobles, which expresses the infertile growth. Macbeth’s human feelings are gradually destroyed at the end of the play, and he becomes a wonderful man (Shakespeare, Clark and Wright, 2009). Macbeth’s extraordinary power of imagination enables to see the implications of evil deeds before the deed itself is committed. Thus the play produces the feeling of understanding which is the ultimate test of tragedy. It should be eminent that the evil side may be associated with the influence of supernatural powers or devils which naturally focus on the evil ambitions and activities of the damned souls.
