713 words - 3 pages

'Life… is a tale, Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing.'Why does Macbeth find life meaningless?If Macbeth were to look in the mirror, at the time he spoke these words he would see the reflection of an unrecognisable man, compared to that which would have looked back at him at the beginning of his story.

Macbeth eventually gave in to these temptations which allowed evil to dominate the rest of his life."All hail, Macbeth! Hail to thee, Thane of Glamis…. All Hail, Macbeth! Hail to thee, Thane of Cawdor!... All Hail, Macbeth, that shalt be king hereafter!"As these words were...
