Macbeth Project

Macbeth deals with the internal fear of being caught for his murder. In Act III, Scene iii this fear causes Macbeth to kill Banquo. However the exteral reality was that nobody had any reason to be convinced that Macbeth had murdered Duncan.

Act I

"Internal desires and fears can be more influential than external reality."

Due to the consequences of Macbeth's internal desireshe is attacked by Macduff's army, yet he ignores the external reality of war.

In Act I, Scene I, Macbeth first comes upon the witches who give him the prophecy and introduce him to his fate as king of Scotland. This is the start of his internal ambitions to become king, and it is because of this that he does not comprehend the external reality of what the consequences of killing King Duncan may be.

Act II

The external realities previously ignored in Act I becomes more prominate as Macbeth deals with what follows. The combined force of his ambition, his murder of Duncan, and still-there internal desires cause him to kill the servants (II. iii) and progress his crimes further.

Act V

In the first scene of Act V Lady Macbeth shows her internal fear and other mixed emotions about the murders she was a part of. Despite the fact that nobody would suspect her to be involved in the murders, she kills herself because of her internal fear and guilt. This shows how her internal fears were more influential than the external reality

Theme of Macbeth


Act IV

By Hannah, Tyler, and Margie

Macbeth allows the internal desire of ambition to influence his decisions.

Macbeth allows his internal desires to overcome him rather than to notice that the external reality, or the witches, are a bad omen.

Macbeth is overcome by his hatred for Macduff and it causes him to decide to kill Macduff's family for no real reason (IV. i). This is an example of Macbeth allowing his internal desires to influence his actions.

Another One Bites the Dust represents our theme because Macbeth and Lady Macbeth murdered others since their internal desires and fears influenced their decisions more than external reality.
