Macbeth Vs. Witches When witches come together, nothing can go right. In Act 3 Scene 4, Macbeth says "I am in blood stepped so far that, should I wade no more, returning were as tedious as go o'er: strange things I have in head that will to hand, which must be acted ere they may be scanned.
“Things are not always as they seem; the first appearance deceives many”. This quote was written by a Roman poet, named Phaedrus around 370 BCE, long before Shakespeare’s time. Thousands of years later, Shakespeare incorporates many deceiving motifs in Macbeth that put the words of Phaedrus into action. The use of ill-fitting clothes, sleep, and bloodshed is all examples of imagery used to illustrate that not everything that looks genuine is so. Just as clothes appear to fit well, they can be very uncomfortable at the same time.
The three witches’ prophecies acted as a trigger that influenced and obscured Macbeth’s “vaulting ambition”, causing him to become presumptuous as they mislead him into falsely believing that he was invulnerable and unconquerable with their deceptive use of equivocation, thus leading him to his undoing. Though the witches don’t force Macbeth to do anything, they merely revealed the future and chose to confront Macbeth when he was most vulnerable, planting a ‘seed’ in his head that “All hail, Macbeth, that shalt be king hereafter!” and that “none of woman born Shall harm Macbeth” which inevitably start dominating the way he acted. Initially, the witches’ deceptive tidings of their chiasmus “fair is foul and foul is fair” is imagery used to echo the notion of moral contamination whilst their impact on Macbeth’s already troubled mind contextually depicts them as agents of the devil. With their adoption of ambiguous language, they ‘palter with Macbeth in riddles and affairs of death’ and as a result he is ‘drawn into confusion’, which is used by Shakespeare to convey the danger of suggestion, that depending on the conditions, they may be harmless, delusive or insidious.
Back in the 1600s women, sadly, did not have power. They were not to be seen or heard, the only time they did have a little bit of power is when there husband was gone. They would not stand out or stand up for themselves, and normally if a women did this, their opinion would usually get ignored. In the famous tragedy Macbeth, women show determination and great power unlike back in the day. First, the author uses the three witches to show power when they talk to Macbeth about the prophecies, misleading him into thinking that he can not be defeated.

In the story, The Tragedy of Macbeth, the witches in the play help him out much to Hecate's discrete. So it would bode well to trust that Macbeth is being deceived by the witches. The witches assume an essential part in affecting Macbeth to kill the lord. Likewise, Lady Macbeth's impact is more powerful than minor plotting. To begin with, In my assessment, Macbeth would've likely never been enticed by musings of authority on the off chance that he would've never met the witches, "strange sisters."
In the play, Macbeth, written by Shakespeare, the main character called Macbeth was influenced by his wife, Lady Macbeth. Shakespeare uses this influence to show us the ambition can lead people to do anything if they have no self control, which was revealed through the use of soliloquy, dialogue and motif, which are all in conjunction with imagery, such as metaphor and symbolism. Throughout the play, Macbeth was influenced by his wife, Lady Macbeth. This was first shown through the use of soliloquy.
Introduction Although most readers of Macbeth have argued that Macbeth doesn’t lose his mind, duty, and love of life but, closer examination shows that through his action his psyche has evolved. Macbeth can be shown to be losing his mind because when he is in the woods, he has a vision of a dagger which leads him to Duncan’s bed where he ultimately kills Duncan. He has lost his sense of duty because the one whom he pledged his loyalty to, he has betrayed and slaughtered. He can be shown to have lost the love of life because when he is told of Lady Macbeth's death, he has no emotion except that he had expected it.
In the beginning of the plays, three witches gather together to discuss when they should meet again. The second witch says, “When the battle is lost and won.” that will be when they will be again with Macbeth. What the second witch said can represent Macbeth. It foreshadows Macbeth will win in battle and lose some.
