In Macbeth, would you say that the conflict of fate vs. free will remains unresolved? Why? or Why not? Otherwise, does fate win versus free will or the other way around? Help is very much appreciated!!

    Yes the conflict is never resolved because Macbeth never actually changes himself to do things differently, he sticks to being overly ambitious and insane, he only cares about how powerful he is by the end of the book, all because of the witches prophecys. Fate for sure wins because although macbeth claims himself to still have free-will, he really doesn't, because once you here your prophecy the first time, you are likely to follow it.
