Blood and DeathIn Macbeth...

The motive of blood in Macbeth is a reoccurring and present theme throughout the work. We are first introduced to it when Macbeth murders Duncan. Of course blood is a physical aspect of Duncan’s death but it is also symbolic meaning and is almost foreshadowing. Macbeth looks at his bloody hands and feels ashamed, guilty and disgusted with himself because of the murder he had committed. As the story progresses we see that Macbeth now becomes blood-thirsty as he starts to murder more and more innocent people, who he assumes would get in the way of his ambitions, But in the end, Macbeth realises this is his downfall.
