Banquo Macbeth greatest friend and most trusted. Noble Banqou was a every noble person. King duncan even stated so in the begining of the story Origanal "O treachery!

  Banquo is a character in William Shakespeare's play Macbeth. In the play, he is at first an ally to Macbeth and they are together when they meet the Three prophesying that Macbeth will become king, the witches tell Banquo that he will not be king himself, but that his descendants will be. Later, Macbeth in his lust for power sees Banquo as a threat and has him .   Macbeth decides to hire 3 murderers to kill Banquo and his son. The murderers kill Banquo, but his son escapes. Later on in the book the character named Macduff kills Macbeth and Malcolm, son of Duncan, becomes King. You could assume that in the future Banquo's son will become King and Banquo's prophesy come true.

Edgar, the banished son of Gloucester and brother to the villain Edmund, is the primary character in the sub-plot of King Lear. The dutiful Edgar is much like Cordelia and suffers throughout the play due to his father's transgressions. In a sense, Banquo’s character stands as a rebuke to Macbeth, since he represents the path Macbeth chose not to take: a path in which ambition need not lead to betrayal and murder. Appropriately, then, it is Banquo’s ghost—and not Duncan’s—that haunts Macbeth. In addition to embodying Macbeth’s guilt for killing Banquo, the ghost.

Banquo's purpose in the play is the quintessential foil of Macbeth, both in acting, as well as in meaning. Shakespeare utilizes Banquo in order to create opposite moods to what is the drive of the play, which is Macbeth and his wife plotting, scheming, and murdering, by offering great solid blocks of integrity, passion, and goodness, that slightly descend into questioning.

Banquo's role in the original source for Macbeth was as Macbeth's co-conspirator. In Shakespeare's play, he is depicted instead as Macbeth's rival; the role of fellow plotter passed to Lady Macbeth, Banquo is open to human yearnings and desires: He is, for example, just as keen to hear what the Witches have in store for him in Act I, Scene 3.

The Character of Banquo. Banquo is perhaps a foil to Macbeth, i.e. he tends to underline Macbeth's reactions by his own. At the beginning he is bracketed with Macbeth as a brave and valiant soldier.

Banquo is as ambitious as Macbeth, but unlike Macbeth he resists putting his selfish ambition above his honor or the good of Scotland. Because he both knows the prophecy and is honorable, Banquo is both a threat to Macbeth and a living example of the noble path that Macbeth chose not to take.

Macbeth seems to be very ambitious from the beginning of the play while Banquo is, comparatively, very rational and fair human being.

Other articles where Banquo is discussed: Macbeth: Macbeth and Banquo, who are generals serving King Duncan of Scotland, meet the Weird Sisters, three witches who prophesy that Macbeth will become thane of Cawdor, then king, and that Banquo will beget kings.

Soon thereafter Macbeth discovers that he has indeed been made thane of Cawdor. Banquo's response reveals his honest character. He says that as long as he can keep a clean conscience, he will gladly help Macbeth. Shortly after this conversation, Macbeth murders King Duncan.

Banquo is Macbeth's ally and the only person who may be a risk to Macbeth. Because of this, Macbeth turns on his friend and has him murdered. While Macbeth's character may initially have some. character analysis (translation of the enlarged version of Charakteranalyse fromtranslated by Theodore P.
