    How far do you agree that Macbeth is a very moral play about the punishment of sin?
    Do you have any ideas that you can think of? of course, the obvious one is that Macbeth causes his own demise; he is punished for the several murders that he commits, which is obviously a sin. So that could be a focal point. But then he is also punished before his death; the constant emotional torture he has to face after he murders King Duncan. The guilt eats away at him for a while. He also shows greed, he desires power so much that he continues to kill and is no longer remorseful. Then you could argue against this, is there anything to suggest that it isn't a very moral play about the punishment of sin? Are there any sins that people aren't punished for? It's always good to argue against your points and keep up a smooth debate
