A dilemma is a problem with two possible solutions. In order to create a thesis statement that best indicates a dilemma, it is first important to consider circumstances in Macbeth that had two possible outcomes.

Some examples:

1. Macbeth's determination to become king is a force inflicted upon him by the constraints of being masculine in 11th century Scotland.

2. Lady Macbeth's forceful outward appearance is a falsehood masked by her internal femininity.

3. Pathetic fallacy, as demonstrated in Macbeth, illuminates Shakespeare's belief in a karmic universe.
