special character in macbeth by shakespeare


Literature character analysis 

Malcolm

Malcolm is a middle-aged man who is about an ordinary weight who dresses in royal clothes.  He is greedy and arrogant and selfish and speaks royally since he is the prince and heir to the throne and must learn manners and very manipulative and speaks clearly. 

He wants to be the king more than anything and chances are he does that consciously and deliberately, it appears that he wants to simply wait out the king until he dies and simply takes the throne. From how loyal he seems and his manipulative attitude he seems to be feigning his loyalty towards his father. 

He seems to be compassionate about his dreams of being king but smart enough not to physically attempt to take the throne and plays smart and is optimistic enough to believe no one else will interfere in his master plan.
