The Witches Effects on the Actions of Macbeth Three of the minor rolls in Macbeth cause the most chaos with the littlest effort They are the witches They use their power of suggestion to ruin all that they can By simply suggesting things to Macbeth they turn this proud and loyal man into a cold blooded killer Some may say that Macbeth was unwillingly forced into his situation but this is not true he could have simply ignored the words of the weird sisters His best friend Banquo was with him when the witches told their prophesies but Banquo stayed true to himself and his King Even after things began to fall apart around him Macbeth voluntarily sought out the witches to learn more Macbeth like all other humans on this planet had a miraculous thing called free will It means that he can make his own choices It is true that the witches were very convincing but in the end he murdered his cousin King Duncan on a hunch Even then hes not sure if what he is doing is right In Macbeths monolog at the end of Act one scene one he goes on about this He also hallucinates about seeing a bloody dagger To any person in their right mind a vision of a murder weapon would not be a good sign Most people would make the wise choice of taking a nap or going to the doctor not killing someone they love When the witches gave their prophesy Macbeths best friend Banquo also received a bit of information Lesser than Macbeth and greater Not so happy yet much happier Thou shalt get kings though thou be noneIiii69-71 This is great news to Banquo His son Fleance will become a king But he does not jump to the conclusion that he must kill everyone in line to assure his childs crown He thinks rationally and decides to ignore
