Akanksha Shah English Coursework-Macbeth Explore the part played by the witches in the play Macbeth What influence do they have on the events of the play and do they contribute to the atmosphere and dramatic impact of the play I believe that even though the witches only appear in the play a few times they play a very important role in Macbeth they have a great deal of influence on not just the major characters but many of the others and I feel that the witches contribute to the overall atmosphere of the play dramatically It is at the beginning of the play that we are introduced to the evil sisters when they meet in an open place in thunder and lightning Right from the start the witches create a mysterious atmosphere The fact that they meet in conditions and in an open area which is away from the prying eyes of society suggests that they are up to something secret and as we know they are witches we assume whatever they are up to will be evil and something they do not wish to disclose to anybody else It is also a fact that in Shakespearean times turbulent and dramatic weather such as this meant that the earths elements were uneasy and foretold that something disastrous was to happen The evil witches seem to be at ease in weather conditions such as these and it appears that they also have control over the weather We see the witches deciding which type of weather they should meet up again in when shall we three meet again In thunder lightning or in rain These lines suggest that hey do in fact have control over the weather and they also show that the witches appear to be comfortable in this type of weather The three sisters decided to meet after the commotion is over When the hurlyburlys done When the battle is lost and won The witches
