Macbeth eNotes Response Journal
Excerpt From this Document
- As the play begins, three witches appear in a lonely, deserted place, accompanied by thunder and lightning. What are some words you would use to describe the atmosphere and mood of this first scene? What role do you think the witches might play in the story of Macbeth?
- During Scene 1, the three witches chant, “Fair is foul, and foul is fair.” How do you interpret the meaning of their pronouncement? Do you see it as a prediction of future events or as an indication that the witches are evil in nature? Could it be both? Discuss your thoughts about the witches’ chant.
