The reason I think the title is important is also because I feel that when I first read the poem, I asked my self is this apt? Because on the first reading I felt the poem could have been called something else. I did not think as to what it should be called but I definitely did not agree with the title novel. Let us now look at the meaning of novel. According to the Oxford dictionary the word novel means a story long enough to fill a complete book, in which the characters and events are usually imaginary.
The Thane of King Duncan, Macbeth hears a prophecy that he himself will become king later on in the future after King Duncan. This then leads to Macbeth being overcome by greed. Since Macbeth greeds to be king so bad, he murders King Duncan and takes his place of the throne. Macbeth starts to live with so much guilt and fear that he commits even more murders to have his power safe. Macbeth is so confident in the prophecies that his life comes to a downfall and he gets killed by the people he did wrong.
The prediction comes true because, at that young age, he becomes an accessory to murder. Along the way, he killed the king, and this marks the start of his destiny where it was prophesied of his actions.

Despite the exact meaning of the poem remaining a mystery, much like the event of Edgar Allan Poe’s death a little over six months later, some of the poems meaning can also be inferred from an earlier poem written by Poe, as it is a revised version of “Imitation”, which also questions the meaning of life (Spacey). This explains how Poe may have been left questioning the reality of life after being forcefully parted from his fiance. A reader may come up with what the poem means to them from the poetic devices used. The setting in the first stanza is never specified, and aids the reader to think that the narrator’s resolution is that life is a dream by never mentioning anything that relates to a certain place or time. The last line of the first stanza is a statement and a solution to a question that has never been pondered about.
