Moreover, the first paragraph is an introduction to the play and a quick presentation of the beginning of Act 5 Scene 1 and what caused Lady Macbeth’s hallucinations. The second section talks about the first interpretation of a reader that comes from the nineteenth century where everything that had no explanation, happened because of witchcraft. The third paragraph talks about the second interpretation from a reader of a modern era where hallucinations are only based on scientific proof. Finally, the fourth and final paragraph is a wrap up of the three previous paragraphs with the only focus of summarizing the main arguments of the analysis.
