    Default Macbeth(please read it!)

    can you please proof read my essays? can you please fix mistakes, and things are akwward. And right use of quotings, and better vocabularies will be helpful. thank you so much


    In Macbeth, a Shakespearean tragedy, Macbeth has worked through his evil plans to become the King of Scotland by murdering Duncan. Realizing his mistake of killing Duncan, Macbeth feels guilty, and quickly learns that he’s not safe. To save his kingship, and himself, Macbeth trusts only the witches, while he distrusts many others.
    Before the tragedy strikes in the play, both Banquo and Macbeth learn their fates from the witches. Knowing that Banquo’s children would be kings, not his, Macbeth quickly distrusts Banquo, and soon becomes his enemy. In Act Three, scene two, Macbeth says, “It is concluded. Banquo, thy soul’s flight, if it find heaven, must find it out tonight” (Lines 161-162). This shows that Macbeth’s distrust of Banquo soon led him to murder Banquo, once his best friend before he learned about the prophecies.
    From beginning of the play, Macbeth trusts Lady Macbeth’s plan to kill Duncan in his sleep. However, after his coronation, Macbeth’s paranoia of losing his kingship to Banquo’s children worsened. Soon enough, he even lost trust in Lady Macbeth as she asked what is to be done with Banquo. In Act Three, scene three, Macbeth says, “Be innocent of the knowledge, dearest chuck, till thou applaud the deed” (Lines 51-52). This shows that Macbeth’s trust in Lady Macbeth’s is poor due to his worsening paranoia.

    Even though Macbeth distrusts many people, he has always trusted the weird sisters, or the three witches. In fact, his great trust in the witches’ prophecies led him wonder, and became greedy by killing Duncan. In Act Three, scene 4, Macbeth says to Lady Macbeth, “I will tomorrow to the Weird Sisters. More shall they speak, for now I am bent to know by the worst means of the worst” This shows that to learn how to secure his kingship, and to learn about the future, Macbeth goes to meet the Weird Sisiters.

    Hope that helps.

    Macbeth is a biggie – in terms of its importance in Shakespeare’s body of work as well as with respect to understanding the entire thing. There have been many a student and reader alike who has been stumped when trying to decipher and discuss the various themes and techniques working together in the play. If you need help with your paper on Macbeth, I would recommend you visit Shmoop. It’s a very cool site that even has an entire section on study questions and a novel approach to reading this masterpiece.

    I'm sure this must be a typo.
    He may have lost trust. I doubt that he "loosed" it.
    I'll take this opportunity to remind learners (and teachers, apparently) that the present participle of "to lose" is "losing".
