Through out the whole entire play Macbeth the main character slowly looses his sanity he starts
off by murdering Duncan the king of Scotland so he can become king. Macbeth hallucinates and
goes insane in my essay I will describe Macbeth loosing his sanity. Macbeth ultimate goal is to
become king of Scotland.
The first hallucination that Macbeth has he says, "is this a dagger which I see before me, let me
clutch thee." The dagger leads him upstairs to the chamber that King Duncan is sleeping
Macbeth then murders the King by repeatedly stabbing him in the chest. His second hallucination
is when he is eating dinner with his guests he sees Banquo and he actually talks to him. Lady
Macbeth says the he is sick and the guests should leave.
After the banquet incident Macbeth goes to the witches and he has his future told he sees three
Apparitions the first apparition is a armored child the armored head says “beware of McDuff” the
second apparition is a bloody child it say “no man born of a woman may harm you” And finally
the third apparition is a crowned child with a branch in its hand it says “you will not be harmed
until the woods of Birham comes to you” These apparitions make him feel invincible because all
men are born of woman and trees can’t move so he ultimately feels invincible. These apparitions
Ultimately lead to his death. Lady macbeth is also just as guilty as Macbeth if not more so she is t
he one who provoked him to do the deed by questioning him of his man hood. Lady Macbeth also
hallucinates she constantly sees the blood of the people who they have murdered on her hands she
has gone completely insane she is always trying to wash off the blood that she sees on her hands.
At the end of the play the woods of Birham moves toward Macbeths castle and Macbeth fights
Mcduff Macbeth has no idea that Mcduff was ripped out of his mothers’ womb. In the end
Mcduff kills Macbeth.
