Macbeth Is In A Courtroom Being Trialed For Being A Murderer, Usurper And Tyrant. Write A Final Speech In The Voice Of A Prosecutor.

608 words - 2 pages

Ladies, gentlemen and members of the jury: today we have viewed the heinous actions of a man who stands trial as a murderer, usurper and tyrant. Driven by his lust for power, this man, Macbeth, has not only broken the sixth commandment "thou shall not murder" he has also committed the highest form of crime: Regicide.Macbeth has not only dismissed our society's ideal of law and order, he has intervened with God's choice of King Duncan (may his soul rest in peace) as the rightful King of Scotland.

He has no witnesses, no justified explanation of his crimes and no physical proof of his innocence. So then where is the defense basing their arguments from? Because I certainly...
