Macbeth is humane, hypocritical, ambitious, insecure (of killing Duncan) and undecided. His arguments for killing Duncan are based on moral values (ambition) and on opportunism. Macbeth is more worried than his wife by the possibility of being discovered and punished. After Duncan’s killing, Macbeth hears voices and he says that “he will sleep no more”, which means that there will be no more peace in his soul and mind.
