   The "two Truths" are about the prediction concerning Macbeth and Banquo's children, act I, scene 3. However, as this is almost the first aside in the play and as this episode succeeds the witches' prediction, we cannot but think the sentence is ambiguous. The ambivalent charcter of the witches is brought out during their brief encounter. they are women, but have beards; they seem to be alive but are fantastical....

  The Imperial Theme is the title of a chapter written by a famous critic called Wilson Knight. It refers to Macbeth's dream of ascending the throne.
