The Reasons Why Macbeth Is More Guilty By His Acti
ons Then LadyMacbeth Is By Hers.
Macbeth is a very exciting story containing all kinds of plots and
murders. The characters that are killing and are planning murders
are all very deceiving and treacherous. Two of the most dangerous
criminals in this play are Lady Macbeth and her husband. Together
they commit the most dreadful murder by killing the King; Duncan.
This is why it is difficult to determine which one of these two is
more guilty, because they each do their own part in committing the
crime. Lady Macbeth would prepare the plan and then encourage
Macbeth to go through with it. Macbeth did the actual murdering,
he was also the first person who thought about killing Duncan.
Furthermore he did some killing on his own. Lady Macbeth did not
have any involvement in these cases. Based on these facts,
Macbeth would be found more guilty than Lady Macbeth.
The very first murder in this story was committed on Duncan.
This crime was planned by both Macbeth and Lady Macbeth. The
actual murder was done by Macbeth, making him more guilty of the
crime. Lady Macbeth just talked about committing the crime, but
she never actually went through with it nor would she ever, and
that is all that counts. Talking about committing the incident is
very different from actually doing it. Lady Macbeth did a little
more than just talk about it though. She also urged Macbeth into
doing it and that is what makes her part of this crime, but she is
not as guilty as Macbeth. He really didn’t have to listen to what
his wife said. Macbeth had a mind of his own and he could make
his own decision. The other murders that Macbeth was involved in
were not committed by him, but were ordered by him. The people who
did the killing had no choice, they had to do it, because they
worked for Macbeth. Macbeth knew this and was a bit more guilty
in these murders then lady Macbeth was when she urged him.
The idea of killing Duncan first came from Macbeth. Macbeth
listened to the witches prophecies that said he would become King.
Macbeth did not want to wait any longer and he thought the only
way to become King was to kill the present King; Duncan. Macbeth
later told Lady Macbeth about this and she just wanted to help him
and do whatever she could for him, so that he would be happy and
be King. She was also excited about becoming queen.
