  1. Sarah M.P.

    Superstition is a key theme within Macbeth, we can observe it through the character. Shakespeare writes about the supernatural because it’s set a mysterious atmosphere which people at the time believed in. In Macbeth, the supernatural can be shown in different appearances for example, the witches foretelling the future of Macbeth and Banquo. Another scene s shown with Macbeth and the flying dagger.
    Macbeth seems possessed by what the witches told him and seems he has to kill King Duncan, with the help if his wife. Without the supernatural side of the story, it wouldn’t be as interesting and Informative because it gives a more dark side, opposite to the positive side.
