4. As the audience, pity was expressed dearly through Macbeths possible and yet great human potential, I have lived long enough¦and that which should accompany old age, as honor, love, obedience, troops of friends, I must not look to have. (Act V, Scene 3, Line 22-26). 5. The first signs of awareness are when Macbeth puts together the real predictions granted to him by the three apparitions, Let every soldier hew him down a bough and bear it before him. (Act V, Scene 4, Line 4-7). He is then lead to accepting his fate or anagnorisis, right before Macbeth is slain by Macduff, I will not yield, to kiss the ground before young Malcolms feet¦I throw my warlike shield. Lay on, Macduff. (Act V, Scene 8, Line 27-24). Part Two:
By using Aristotles definition of a tragic hero, I would conclude that Macbeth is indeed a tragic hero. Macbeths tragic flaw mostly described as his passion, where he would contemplate over and over with his very own reasoning, in which passion overrules all of his humanly common senses; this causes an imbalance between human reason and passion thus leading to tragic consequences or rather the heros tragic death.
