Since she is a sadist, and “The close contriver of all harms” (III.v.7) involving the witches’ powers, it is odd that she never directly interacts with Macbeth. In fact, she conveniently leaves before he enters, and his behaviour in the scene would have enthralled her. The witches and Hecate are all supernatural forces in the play. Although the witches speak in iambic pentameter, it may be to show that they spend more time interacting with other people. Hecate who is only in two scenes which feature the witches, and her speech uses a slightly different meter, which may indicate that she does not interact with most of the non-witches in this fictional Scotland.
For example, if many people are apply for a certain job, it can almost seem somewhat selfish for one person to accept the position while all the other applicants are left unemployed. This would be a time when it is acceptable for an individual to be selfish, in an effort to provide one’s self with a better life, just like when Macbeth selfishly murdered his way into royalty. Similarly to how Macbeth should not have sent assassins to kill Banquo and Fleance, most of the time, one should not be selfish. Shakespeare executes this lesson quite well in the play
Instead of using witchcraft for evil, they live peaceful lives and heal others. An important thing to remember, they were apart of a religion, but still got accused as witches and put to death (History.com Staff). Another reason that atheism goes against witches is that they say that witchcraft can happen. When St. Augustine said in the 400s that only God can have powers, witches and Satan got accused of not existing. This statement became only an error made by Pagans.
In the play Macbeth illustrate innate human tendency to make inhumane choices when given the freedom to. When Macbeth realize that he is trusted by the king and is given more freedom , his inner savagery is stimulated. For example, when Macbeth at the beginning of the novel was praised by the king and his friends as he the kings says “worthiest cousin” macbeth shows that he does not think of anyting but loyalt and respect to his kingdom, but in his mind he seeks the ambition in becoming king and thinks recklessly and tragic activities on his mind. As the acts of savagery become more integrated, the idea of death and blood becomes more comforting, and even encouraging. When king Duncan announces that his son malcom will be next to the throne
Although lawyers specifically are not mentioned, the Charter of Rights provides the defendant the right to call witnesses and have another wizard represent them. The defendants can also modify their memories and claim to be under the imperius curse, which are deceptive and hinder the development of the truth and justice. It is under the proper means of adjudication need, where the ministry begins to fail in being considered effective, under Bethany Barratt’s view. For not only does the ministry fail in adjudicating certain issues at all, it also can be incredibly biased and unfair, and Harry Potter is the perfect
Referring back to statements above from Paul Ricoeur, as cited in Gaiser, it is clear that there were indeed metaphysical forces at play in the series of events. Macbeth was not the origin of evil, however the Wyrd Sisters (the three witches) were. They hinted the prophecy of Macbeth being crowned Thane of Cawdor, but did not prophesy of how he will come to be crowned. I believe they were aware of what his next step of action would consist of, therefore they left the decision making to him. In my perspective, doing this alone makes the witches partly at fault for the murder of Duncan.
Banquo neither fears nor begs for the predictions the witches have in store for him, displaying his cautious attitude in regards of the deceiving sisters. Banquo’s lack of belief is evident once more as he says to Macbeth, “Were such things here, as we do speak about? / Or have we eaten on the insane root / That takes the reason prisoner.” (I. iii. 83-84). Despite the fact that Banquo has spoken to the witches himself, watching them vanish into thin air further encourages his doubt.
It's true that people can get away with doing something bad, but not all people can get-a-way with it, Macbeth tried it and his became world chaotic. We can not take the good without the bad. There will always be consequences to the things we do . Sometimes we are blind by the things we want and no we can never get but we still try and knock everyone down to get .People are always trying to get ahead in any way they can. Having ambition and being ambitious are good thing to use in life, to push for what you want, But we also have to be careful not get blinded by it .Act 1 scene 2 Shakespeare wrote, “I have no spur To prick the sides of my intent, but only Vaulting ambition."(2).
At their first appearance, the Witches state an ambiguity that rules the play until it closes: “Fair is foul, and foul is fair”’. Without the belief in witchcraft who knows if Macbeth would ever of been as great as it was. “However, the witches do not control behavior in the play. They are symbolic of evil and prescient of crimes which are to come, but they neither encourage nor facilitate Macbeth’s actions. They are merely a poignant external symbol of the ambition that is already within Macbeth”.
There is no denying the Shakespearean play “Macbeth” is a brutal tragedy. In true Shakespearean tragedy fashion, the play contains murders and betrayals between characters. One of the recurring symbols in throughout the play is blood. The battle scenes, murders, ghosts, Macbeth and his Lady, etc, are all reminders to the audience of the many deaths throughout the play. Shakespeare uses the powerful imagery of blood throughout “Macbeth” to signify the staining guilt and immutable choices Macbeth makes to take innocent human lives for his own gain.
While it isn’t quite as expected, it provides an interesting comparison against an individual who does try to fulfill the prediction. In contrast, hearing the revelation and trying to fulfill it is the more common reaction and affects the story of Macbeth the most. Lady Macbeth is a great example of this, as she latches on
