William Shakespeare once said For I have sworn thee fair and thought thee bright who art as black as hell as dark as night Deception plays a big part in the play Macbeth The play is about a king who is murdered by one of his most trusted men trying to gain power During the play Shakespeare heightens the mood by using various accounts of imagery The blood and night imagery that Shakespeare uses adds to the evil darkness and deception surrounding the play Night has a role of great importance during the play Lady Macbeth beckons Come thick night And pall thee in the dunnest smoke of hell That my keen knife see not the wound it makes Nor heaven peep through the blanket of the dark To cry Hold hold Without the obscurity of night she would not have urged Macbeth to kill the king as she did The night however gives her the impression that Macbeth can indeed kill King Duncan with no one uncovering his contemptible crime the same idea that Macbeth had when he said Stars hide your fires Let not light see my black and deep desires It seems as if the whole plot revolves around the night and the many roles it holds throughout the play Shakespeare often uses darkness and storms to depict that evil happenings are occurring or are about to take place There are at least three examples of this in Macbeth Most of the evil things that Macbeth does in the story occurs in the nighttime Lennox states the obscure bird Clamored the livelong night Some say the earth Was feverous and did shake in reaction to Macbeths first evil act killing the king of Scotland The night has been unruly where we lay Our chimneys were blown down and as they say Lamentings heard i the air strange screams of death Three score and ten I can remember
