Every piece of life seems to be interconnected. They can be the pieces to a puzzle, or they can be a perception of a whole. In both cases, life is a culmination of one's actions. In Macbeth (hereinafter referred to as "the Play"), a predetermined path seems to be set for Macbeth. From the prophecies to the supernatural, Macbeth's actions actively contribute toward his undoing.
Although the supernatural may influence his life, Macbeth forges his own destiny by choosing his actions. In a world without freewill, actions can exist without reason; however, Macbeth's actions are made in context of his personality and situation. It is upon a conscious purpose that Macbeth has chosen his actions.
