I totally agree with this topic. In the beginning, Macbeth is embraced and hailed by everyone in the kingdom including King Duncan and all the Scottish nobles. Macbeth is seen as a hero, as King Duncan quoted, “How brave and noble Macbeth is!”
Macbeth is led to evil and depraved thoughts after he encounters three witches who prophesies to him that he will become King of Scotland and Thane of Cawdor. Macbeth is intrigued at the possibility of him becoming King, especially after one of the witches’ (that he will become Thane of Cawdor) becomes true. This makes Macbeth very insecure about the future because if all the witches’ predictions come true, it will mean that their prediction that Banquo’s children will be future kings of Scotland; this is another foundation which forces Macbeth to order the murder of Banquo and his son. This shows one of the many ways the three witches corrupt Macbeth’s mind.
As Macbeth grows more and more ambitious at the prospect of being king he is driven and influenced to do evil by his wife, Lady Macbeth. Lady Macbeth poisons and contaminates Macbeth’s mind with ambition, dreams and violence, she overrides all of Macbeth’s objections, protests and doubt (for example, when Macbeth is vague about committing the murder of King Duncan, Lady Macbeth continuously questions whether Macbeth was a man, this forces Macbeth to commit the murder as a way of proving himself to his wife).
As the story continues Shakeshere uses the three witches’ like a catalyst to help speed up the evil acts and thoughts of Macbeth, They fuel his desires in an evil and immoral way. Macbeth can be compared to a puppet on a string and the witches’ as puppeteers toying, controlling and influencing the way Macbeth views the world and himself (for example, they tell Macbeth that he cannot be killed by a man born of woman, and offcourse he thinks that the witches forecast is true because all their other predictions have come true, and this makes him think he is immortal).
As Macbeth is faced with internal and external struggles, he is pushed and inclined to do evil deeds, this backs up my belief that Macbeth is not evil but is influenced by other characters in Shakeshere’s play.
