Annette Valdouin Ms.Dalton English 01/10/16 The Supernatural in Macbeth In the Shakespearean play Macbeth, Shakespeare includes supernatural elements such as the imaginary dagger, Banquo’s ghost, and the witches apparitions to give the audience insight as to how fragile Macbeth’s psyche is. In act two Macbeth is readying himself to kill King Duncan when he says, “Is this a dagger which I see before me,/The handle toward my hand?” (2.1.33-34).
Gertrude is Hamlet’s mother and the Queen of Denmark. When King Hamlet is murdered by Claudius, she didn 't seem to daunt her and shortly thereafter got married to Hamlet 's Uncle Claudius. This gives a suspense in this point of the play because it makes the audience think about if Gertrude had anything to do with the murder of her husband or if she helped plan the murder with Claudius. When Gertrude married the person that killed her husband, Hamlet takes it personal and she basically loses her son because he 's so upset with her.

That night he slept with a sword in between himself and the princess. He left the next day and defeated the witch. The younger brother embodies the archetype of the caretaker.
