Letter About Macbeth

Dear Friend,

How are you? I hope you are doing fine. I have some interesting news to tell you. We won the battle. However , something strange happened along the way.

Recently Macbeth and I were travelling, and we came across three “women”. These “women” predicted that Macbeth would be king hereafter and the Thane of Cawdor, and that I would be a father to kings. Macbeth and I laughed about this news together, and than we carried on in our journey. However, I started to notice changes as soon as Ross delivered us some news. Ross had news from the King, that Macbeth has been given the new name “Thane of Cawdor”.

It was after this news had been delivered that the changes in Macbeth occurred. Macbeth started to believe in these strange womens predictions , saying that soon I would be father of kings as well. I warned Macbeth not to trust those “women”, that he could be deceived. Shortly after, Macbeth became quieter, thinking to himself a lot. I thought that he would get over it, even though Macbeth said we would discuss it later. While The king was crowning his son, Macbeth had a strange look on his face. It was if he was thinking hard.

Seeing these changes made me wonder, what is Macbeth thinking?  Why has a simple prediction caused Macbeth to be so isolated? Does Macbeth really believe that he shall become King? Maybe Macbeth is debating on what could happen to make him a King. Could Macbeth be plotting to become King? If Macbeth is plotting to become King, there is only way he can do it. Which means Macbeth will attempt to kill the King , and anyone in his way. There is no limit to what Macbeth will try to do if he really desires to be King.

Sincerely,

Banquo
