MacbethIf murder Banquo and his son. Later,three ghosts
MacbethIf it hadn’t been for the three witches, Macbeth wouldnever have killed Duncan nor Banquo. Macbeth, also wouldnot have been killed my Macduff. The three witches are thereason that everything happened the way the they did.
In the beginning of the play, the three witchesprophecized that Macbeth would become Thane of Cawdor adnthe King of Scotland. In the near future Macbeth became theThane of Cawdor because of his valiant efforts in the war. Macbeth started to think about the witches proheciesandstarted to become a little ambitious. With the constantnagging and mockery of Lady Macbeth, Macbeth decides to gothrough with the murder of Duncan. Thus, another one of thewitches prophecies was fulfilled. The witches alsoprophecized that Banquo’s sons will be kings. In the worryof Banquo finding out about the murder of Duncan and thethought of Banquo’s son, Fleance, Macbeth hires a fewasassins to murder Banquo and his son.
Later,three ghosts appear in front of Macbeth. First,an armored head appears and warns Macbeth to beware ofMacduff. Second, a bloody child appears telling Macbeththat no man born a woman should harm him. Third, a childholding a tree, tells Macbeth that he is safe until BirnhamWoods comes to Dunsinane. After the three ghosts visitMacbeth, the apparition of Banquo appears. Following Banquois seven of his descendants, all of which were deceasedkings.The first of the three warinings from the ghosts comestrue when macduff allies with Malcolm, one of Duncan’s sons.
Together they plan to retake the throne of Scotland. Macduff and Malcolm plan to use the leaves and branches ofBirnham Woods as camouflage. Before Macbeth is killed, heremembers the third ghost that stated that no man born awoman should harm him. Macduff then explains that he he wasrazed out of his mother’s stomach, which means that he wasnot born a woman. All three of the warnings from the ghostscame true.This is why I believe that if Macbeth had never spokento the three witches, none of this would have happened.
