'Shakespeare makes much use of imagery to acheive his dramatic objective' Discuss the use of imagery in Act 1 of Macbeth

samantha96 | Student

A lot of the imagery emphasised in Act 1 is shown through the witches. You can discuss the stage directions (thunder, lightning, deserted place), the description of the witches in scene 3 that "You should be women,/ And yet your beards forbid me to interper/ That you are so." (Act 1, Scene 3, line 46-48)

There is a lot of use of imagery provided considering Macbeth was originally a play.
