Fate, Destiny and Influence
I don’t believe; however, that destiny is predetermined. I believe that you can choose different paths in life, and that your attitude towards something can change the outcome of any situation drastically. You can always change what your future looks like. In this play, Macbeth and Lady Macbeth are making the choice to kill Duncan because they believe that it is the only way Macbeth can become king. Macbeth believes that his future is predetermined but in reality it is his own decision and interpretation of the prophecy to consider killing Duncan. I think that our environment and our own perspectives can influence our futures and destiny. If there are always negative things around us, then most likely the end result will be bad. On the other hand if there are positive things around us than there is a good chance that the end result will be positive.
It will be interesting to see how the rest of this script plays out, when in theatre class we never ended up finishing the play so I’m anxious to see what happens.
