“Double, double toil and trouble” In the beginning of act IV, scene I, the speakers are the three weird sisters, also called witches. Have been sent by Hecate (in act III, scene V), their master and greek goddess of magic, to correct the great unbalance they have created (by convincing Macbeth to kill King Duncan) and take Macbeth off the throne. They use a creepy lyrical tone as they recite a poem and create a potion to summon apparitions.

All of the treatment was finally getting to her, but she decided that all of the medical terms and tests were a part of learning, so that there was not ignorance. At the end of the book, E. M. Ashford came to visit Vivian as she approached the end of her life. Vivian was at her lowest at this point, and even cried in this scene of the movie. I believe that Edson used the Tale of the Flopsy Bunnies as a tool to evoke different sides of Vivian, as she made her such a strong female lead (Edson, 1993). Overall, Edson used the Tale of the Flopsy Bunnies as a tool that both let readers see a side of Vivian that had her guard let down and a time that she felt close to her father, as well as see the side of Vivian that was not so sophisticated.
