In real life, we should not judge people solely on their Appearances. There are many people who appear to be trustworthy but in reality, Are not.

Later on, the main character of Macbeth uses the distinction Between, appearance and reality in order to hide their true intentions. This is Spoken about by Duncan in relation to the betrayal by the previous Thane of Cawdor “there’s no art to find the mind’s construction in the face”.

As well as Macbeth altering and shifting from the life stage of Naivety to the stage of selfishness and egocentricity. The next stage of Macbeth’s Life that is seen in the play show is insanity, the first stage that confirms This is when Macbeth starts seeing things that are not congruent with reality, Such as the apparition of the dagger that points him to Duncan’s room. The Masculinity of Macbeth was sarcastically questioned by Lady Macbeth “...Live a Coward in thine own esteem...”, this effectively spurred his need to prove Himself not cowardly and therefore manly. Yet believing her husband isn’t manly Enough Lady Macbeth conjures the spirits in her soliloquy, “unsex me...” Pleading to transcend the limits put on her because of her gender.

Due to lady m characterization of M, we feel empthy and Compassion from him (tragic hero has good qualitie, but enfortunatelly his Folly prevails)Lady Macbeth are unable to differentiate between appearance and Reality, resulting in tragic consequences.It can be argued that Lady Macbeth is the one Responsible for triggering a slippage into this inevitable situation that led To their descent. From the moment Macbeth became aware of his “fate” Lady Macbeth started forming her own imaginary world in which her evil plans seemed Likely to be effective. The thought of she and her husband being royalty makes Her dismiss rationality and while being immersed in her corrupt intentions, she Bares a great influence on Macbeth himself. During the play, her personality is Being subjected to a gradual and deteriorating transformation which leads to Her demise.Given this, we can help But to wonder how she comes up with such evil plans and how all these dark Thoughts like the following go through her head.
Conclusion: I hope I have demonstrated through The interpretation of the carefully crafted devices used by, both William Shakespeare and Ariel Dorfman used symbolism, setting, and characterization, as Tools to present the thematic idea where two protagonists are unable to hold Power and control over their own destinies.
