The Good Vs. Evil in Macbeth The William Shakespeare play that has been wrote and called Macbeth takes place in Scotland, England. There are many good and evil parts within this majestic play. The good characters in Macbeth are less entertaining and better than the evil ones. Everybody has an 'evil seed' planted in him or her. Only the really evil person acts on them and commits something morally wrong. Like Macbeth when he first received the prophecies, he actually considered them. “Two truths are told, but what is not”. I see him arguing with himself and feeling disgusted that he even thought that. That was interesting because I get the feeling that something out of the ordinary is coming up and my anticipation gets into the story straightaway.…show more content…
I also see her, as a selfish woman when Macbeth had second thoughts about murdering King Duncan says, “Was the hope drunk. Like the poor cat I' the adage?" King Duncan states, "What beast wasn't then. As you have done to this;" She then also attacks his manhood and masculinity to persuade him to kill King Duncan.

Manipulation was the most interesting part here because the witches make out as if Macbeth was the killer and crime committer. “All hail, Macbeth! Hail to thee, thane of Glamis!

I get the impression that they are conniving misfits who are going to cause more trouble on the way. I am eager to see what they are going to do next. They did cause big trouble, for they gave Macbeth false confidence, which partly led to his downfall in the play. In this scene, the witches are in a dark cave. In the middle, a cauldron is boiling, and there is thunder. "Double, double, toil and trouble; In the cauldron boil and bake; Eye of newt, and toe of frog, Wool of bat, and tongue of dog,” I am captivated by the supernatural vibe that the witches send out. I am also revolted to what the witches put in their
