Ambition is a strong desire of one person to achieve success in their lives and it requires determination and hard work. In the play Macbeth, tragedy was started when Macbeth was given a prophecy by the three witches that Macbeth and Lady Macbeth act on their own to fulfill their ambition and it becomes their own destruction. Thus, William Shakespeare illustrates how Macbeth as a tragic hero through the prophecy and manipulation of his wife changed the way he revealed his character, it shows that Macbeth is a character who is well-respected in the first part of the play, growing his ambitions, and leading his journey into destruction and he becomes thereby becoming the perfect tragic hero when he murdered King Duncan in his sleep.
