Explain how Macduff and Malcolm do or do not exhibit the qualities of good leaders in act 4, scene 3 of Macbeth. What actions should each take or have taken if they were good leaders?
In act 4, scene 3 of Macbeth, Macduff doesn't exhibit the qualities of a good leader. He holds up his hands in despair and loudly laments Scotland's fate when he thinks that Malcolm won't fight against Macbeth. One could argue that Macduff should've been stronger and more resolute.
Malcolm, conversely, does exhibit the qualities of a good leader. He does this by remaining calm throughout this talk with Macduff, as well as testing Macduff's loyalty and stiffening his resolve.
