I just finnished Macbeth, and overall I must say I really enjoyed it, but there is one mayor detail I disliked:
One of the most interesting things for me was, that the witches didn´t have to be magic. An intelligent person who was out to lead Macbeth to the dark path would have been able to guess that Macbeth would become "Thane of Cawdor". I thought it was a nice story about how ambitous people could be abused solely by words.
But then in the second part you find out that those witches really are magic, and can predict the future. So pracitcally everything Macbethd does can be attributed to the evilness of the witches, not to macbeth´s weakness of chracter. They just fool him, "Whoops, those things with the trees was not a metaphor for time" and "Haha, he was born by a cesarean section, so that doesn´t count as "born by a mother"". So it turned out to be just a fairy tale about bad, bad witches, and nothing meaningful.
So what do you think?
As the great philosopher Socrates once said: "No."
