Macbeth And Supernatural Essay Research Paper Macbeths

Macbeth?s supernatural scenes explained In today?s rational and

scientifically explainable world, it would be hard for us to believe in

supernatural intervention in our every day lives unlike during the times of the

Shakespearean plays. In Shakespeare?s Macbeth, there are three examples of

this kind of thing: one with the witches, one with a ghost of a best friend, and

one with the a few apparitions. In the first nonrational scene three old dirty

hags (witches) are discussing where they should meet Macbeth to persuade him

into thinking he should be the nest king. When Macbeth finally meets the three

witches on the heath like they had planed, him and his best friend Banquo are

there. The witches know form years of experience that people that are Thanes

always want to be king some day no matter what it takes. With the witches

knowing this, they make Macbeth think that he is to be king or made king by

saying ?All hail, Macbeth, thou shalt be king hereafter!?(I, iii, 50)

Therefor most of what the witches say they know because the have many years of

experience and wisdom under their sleeves. Banquo, knowing what the witches had

said, has to be dealt with by Macbeth. So Macbeth hires a hit man to take care

of Banquo, and at Macbeth?s dinner party all the seats are filled except for

Banquo?s. Macbeth, feeling guilty about his best friend, starts to hallucinate

and thinks he is seeing Banquo?s ghost in his seat. So Macbeth says to

everyone ?The table is full?(III,iv,46) and everyone thinks he is physco.

Macbeth starts talking to the so called ghost that he thinks is sitting there

saying ?Thou canst say I did it.?(III,iv,50) With Macbeth saying this it

lets everyone know about the guilt that Macbeth feels and some of the other

people know the crime he has committed as well. In the last witch scene Macbeth

wants to see some things or people that he should beware of in the future. So

the witches give Macbeth the descriptive physique of three apparitions: one of a

solider in battle, one of a king that is a kid, and one of a bleeding child.

While the witches call the apparitions out Macbeth sees them, and again it could

be a figment of his imagination or it could be because it is at night and he

can?t see very well. So maybe there are some things in the Elizabethan era

that then could not be explained and they were considered supernatural. But now

as we look back into that era we can most likely find a rational explanation for

most of the things called ?supernatural? in that day, like the witches,

Banquo?s ghost and the apparitions. In today?s society most things are

scientifically explainable. In today?s rational and scientifically explainable
