The play Macbeth is a very tragic one It is about the downfall of a hero who is led by temptation to mass murder and cruelty Shakespeare uses various styles and techniques to display very evidently how Macbeths character develops as the story progresses and then we see how Macbeth turns from good to evil from a valiant cousin and worthy gentleman to a bloody butcher The first we hear of Macbeth is with praises to his name He is called brave Macbeth valiant cousin and worthy gentleman fighting a war for God king and county We hear of further acts of bravery in Macbeth and Banquo when they repelled another assault as sparrows eagles and the hare the lion These two phrases are significant because they represent bravery and to remind us of the order of the universe nature and society in which every creature has its appointed place For all his gallantry Macbeth is rewarded with the title thane of Cawdor and he deserves it The scene is very important as we get to see opinions of Macbeth from the other characters and all the good words leave a deep impression of respect and admiration from the reader It can be noted that already Shakespeare has an effect on the reader and this is an important aspect in the tragedy In the next scene we see the three witches upon a heath They speak of their experiences in particular how one wreaked havoc and devastation upon a boat in vengeance This leaves the audience feeling quite horrified and gives one a sense of wariness as doom seems imminent Now Macbeth and Banquo enter and quite appropriately the former quotes so foul and fair a day I have not seen although he has just won the battle he can sense a surrounding evil They see the witches and are greeted by them All hail Macbeth Hail to thee Thane of Cawdor All hail Macbeth
