Macbeth is actually an anti-hero. The journey, which begins as an honorable quest of good intentions, becomes a dishonorable quest for power. Early in the play (almost immediately), Macbeth calls on the supernatural to aid him, and the man who once stood as liege to his king becomes greedy and power hungry (as does his wife). His goal and the journey to reach it is filled with guilt, nightmares, hallucinations, and madness. His journey created a madman and led to his death.
