Letter to Macbeth
My dear friend Macbeth, how are you and Lady Macbeth? I heard that you have recently been declared Thane of Cawdor. So I guess this means you are Thane of two places now. That is really cool. The real reason I am writing this letter to you is to address my concerns on your thoughts on killing King Duncan. Please take my thoughts into consideration.
The witches have predicted that you will become king someday, maybe someday soon or maybe someday far away who knows? If you really believe them (which I have heard that you do not think about them, but I have a feeling you do), then how do you know that this is supposed to be a planned murder. Maybe it is supposed to be a natural death then you become King of Scotland without all of the guilt on your shoulders and you could enjoy being King. He is growing older everyday. We do not know how long he has left of his role as King of Scotland. He is not a young man you know.
After all you are Thane of Glamis and Thane of Cawdor. Are you sure you would be able to handle those plus being the King of Scotland? I think you should wait it out.
King Duncan has had his long time of being King of Scotland and most of the citizens of Scotland like him and think he is a great king, and like I said before, he s getting older not younger. I understand that you really want to be King of Scotland but being king and Thanes of two places is a lot and this is all happening so fast. I also understand that Lady Macbeth wants to be queen, and that you really want to make her happy but I am sure if you explained it to her that I was happening to fast she would understand. After you wrote that letter to her she selfishly brainstormed how she was going to kill King Duncan and then she brought it up to you making it seem like you had a part in it but when really you didn’t.
If you murder King Duncan you will feel very guilty. Hi is one of your good friends and you know, he is a great king. I think for a few days...
