The first murder of King Duncan only sealed Macbeth’s paranoia and served as a foundation for the murders of Banquo and Macduff’s family.

The narrator saw it as a warning, to discourage it from becoming attached. In “The possibility of pain”, the narrator discovers that Gulliver is getting beat up when he comes home with bruises.
