Is Macbeth a Tragic Hero?
Tragic heroes generally have a "fatal flaw"; Macbeth's flaw seems to be his devotion to his wife.
Lady Macbeth shows no hesitation in pursuing what the 'weird sisters' promise; she 'fears' Macbeth's nature, as he is ambitious but lacks the 'illness should attend it', thus making it clear that he has nobility where she does not (Act 1, Sc v).
Macbeth's hamartia - fatal flaw - is only encouraged by Lady Macbeth. His own ambition is his true failing.
