Homework Help: English

Posted by Kate on Wednesday, April 27, 2011 at 6:26pm.

I just finished reading Macbeth for school. My teacher assigned a essay for us to do. She asked if we think the witches' predictions were right or if the witches' predictions were disappointing because of duality and doublespeak.

I said that I believe in neither and I believe that the witches' prophecies were self-fulfilling prophecies. Isn't that right? I know it has some duality and doublespeak, however, I think they are self-fulfilling prophecies because Macbeth chose to murder King Duncan so he can become king. If he just ignored the witches, all of this would have never happened. Also, when Macduff said he was not 'born of woman', Macbeth managed to let himself be killed by Macduff because he thought he could never die because everyone was 'born from woman.' I think these events prove that the prophecies were self-fulfilling.

Do I have the right idea or should I just say the prophecies are based on duality and double speak?

Thanks!
