Then Macbeth himself repeats it later, just a little different though. Macbeth actually quotes in act 1 scene 3: “So fair is foul a day I have not seen.” This gives a suggestion link between Macbeth and the sisters. It is interesting that he hasn’t met not one of them yet., even though they have already conspired to meet with him. The witches seem to be the embodiment of the embodiment of the foul part of the phase. By this time, people are being very suspicious about witches believing that they were evil and that they should be burned.All three of the witches are assumed to be mean and untrustworthy.
The impactful use of figurative language enhances the tinge of splendor and mystery to the play. Shakespeare’s frequent use of metaphors comparing something to other things is quite noticeable throughout the play. Remarkable examples occur when Lady Macbeth refers to “the milk of human kindness,” and Macbeth, in the end of play talks philosophically about life as “a walking shadow, a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage (MB 5.5.24-25).” Although Shakespeare does not use similes as often as metaphors, they are a regular feature in this play. An instance of a simile appears when Macbeth calls pity “like a naked newborn babe (MB 1.7.21).” Further the fight of two warriors is described as “as two spent swimmers that do cling together (MB 1.2.9).” Apart from these, many more examples of simile and metaphors can be found in almost every page of this play.

As in the beginning of Act 1, Scene 7 Macbeth and Lady Macbeth do not share the same ambition, and it is because of this that their relationship lacks love and affection however through the use of persuasion and other means, Lady Macbeth is able to get Macbeth to pursue her ambition. This not only changes their relationship drastically but it also changes Macbeth’s attitude towards ambition.Throughout the play, Shakespeare shows us through Macbeth, the possibility for ambition to eventually turn into greed and how the lust for power may corrupt us. This type of sentiment can be seen when Macbeth says “ Bloody instructions,being taught, return to plague the inventor” (Act 1, scene 7).
Witches philosophy on life affects the play greatly. “Fair is foul, and foul is fair.” is spoken in unison by the witches and describes the way the play can be interpreted. Macbeth’s downfall can be thought of as foul but also fair because justice had been served. Sanity can be a two-sided argument with Macbeth. The focused role of Macbeth expresses thoughts to himself throughout and can be portrayed as a loss of sanity.
A Disappointing Crime “Mistakes are always forgivable, if one has the courage to admit them.” -Bruce Lee. Everyone knows that minister Dimmesdale was guilty, but some people feel that it was right for him not to confess, while others strongly believe he should have taken ownership of his actions and confessed his sin. Minister Dimmesdale should have confessed his sin for these reasons, he would bear less shame, the people trusted him to confess, and Hester should not have to bear both of their burdens. The minister should have confessed his sin since he would bear less shame. Unfortunately, most of the minister’s shame came from the fact that he was hiding his sin.

It is apparent that the reader does not exactly know what the desires are. This type of cryptic communication that Lady Macbeth is directly speaking sets up an eerie atmosphere. Additionally, the author utilizes communication by planting an evil tone through analogies. Again, Lady Macbeth
