The Macbeth is a helpless victim of fate, some others might think he was in control of his own destiny but he was influenced and pushed to speed up his fate. Shakespeare was showing us how power can change everything and how the work of destiny plays out. Throughout the story shakespeare has shown so many ways of destiny, but the death of duncan, the witches and the final battle is where it has significance.
