Who is the seive in Macbeth?
Along with a bubbling cauldron, toads, eye of newt, and an occasional family of apes (be sure to read Wolfgang von Goethe's Faust), one would find a sieve in the kitchen of every competent witch. Using their brooms as oars, witches would set sail in sieves and journey over rough waters. A text written in 1591, Newes from Scotland, reports 200 witches at one time traveling across the sea in their sieves.
