Macbeth and Othello Comparative

For both Macbeth and Othello, Shakespeare makes it clear that their downfalls stem from their characteristic flaw. Macbeth downfalls are his ambitious nature and eager to get what he wants. While on the other hand Othello’s downfalls are his trust and gullibility to what others tell him.
At the start of Macbeth, Macbeth is presented as extremely violent by his friends saying “disdaining fortune with his brandish’d steel. Which smok’d with bloody execution”.

This tells us Macbeth doesn’t want to be a traitor.
However, when Lady Macbeth speaks to Macbeth in the same scene, his strong reasons for not wanting to kill King Duncan are overcome by persuasiveness. She says “when you durst do it, then you were a man. And to be more than what you were,...
