Is Macbeth a Machiavellian Character?
Macbeth inhabits many qualities of a Machiavellian ruler, he may not inhabit all, but of the majority he does, because he appears well, he's smart and brave, and he knows what he needs to do to keep power. Shakespeare used Machiavelli's beliefs to show what a Machiavellian ruler would be like, but in his case it didn't turn out successfully for him in the end, because he lost the main idea of Machiavelli's ideas. This is because Macbeth was able to do cruel things to benefit himself on his way to power, but once he had the power, he lost the main idea of keeping that power, and he went mental. If Macbeth had kept a clear view of exactly what he wanted, and didn't go a little insane with guilt then he would have been able to avoid the end tragedy of his death. Do you think the play Macbeth would have ended the same if Macbeth had been able to accept the fact that his cruel deeds were going to further his power and his state?…
