In Macbeth, how does Macbeth show commitment?
Macbeth is committed when he shows that he is willing to do just about anything to hang on to the power and status he gained when he killed Duncan. The Weird Sisters told Banquo that he would never be king but that he would father kings; his descendants, then, would rule. This angers Macbeth because he doesn't like to think that he went to all this trouble to make royalty out of someone else's children. He says,
To be thus is nothing,But to be safely thus. Our fears in BanquoStick deep, and in his royalty of natureReigns that which would be feared. (3.1.50-54)
