can someone give me a mark out of 24 and a grade.

At the beginning of the play Macbeth is described as being brave and ambitious as he is given the name “brave Macbeth” and is said that he “deserves that name”. This implies that Macbeth is seen as a good leader and a good companion after the great victory in battle. Although his ego is inflamed after the great victory battle which changed his name from “brave Macbeth”to a “tyrant” as he has then seen as evil after killing Duncan and committing other violent and evil acts. Shakespeare could be showing that people can be tempted by the devil to seek power which leads onto corruption.
Towards the middle of the play Macbeth is manipulated by Lady Macbeth to killing Duncan to seek power as she says to him “look like the flower, but be the serpent under it”. The symbolic image of the serpent shows us that Macbeth is superstitious and easily tempted. The use of the phrase “under it” shows us that Macbeth has an act of being brave and kindhearted, when in reality, deep down, he is a murderer and becomes unable to love, after the devastating acts he committed. This shows us that when, power is in the wrong hands of human kind, evil soon takes over them.
although towards the end of the play Macbeth soon shows signs of guilt and weakness as he starts hallucinating and see in the blood on his hands from the murder of Duncan. This is shown when he says “when will Neptune Oceans washed his blood clean from my hands”. this shows us that towards the end of the play Macbeth soon becomes guilty, and his weakness soon starts to show to others after his act is finally broken which was protecting him.
