    Which main themes in th play are evident in the scene of the three witches?


    The scene of the three witches introduces the theme of equivocation, whose darkest, most dangerous aspect is the reversal of values exemplified by the three witches’ words “Fair is foul, and foul is fair”, that is the bad becomes good and viceversa,


    Closely related to this theme of equivocation is the one of false appearances, that is the difference between what is true and what only seem to be true; this theme is connected with the three witches because they are supernatural beings but they are made believable in a work which has been removed from historical thuth , from any normal parctical common sense.


    Another important theme is that of time; the first word of the scene is connected with time and introduces a question about the future. The answer is expressed in terms of place; this confusion of time and place is only the first of the long series of reversals that dominate the play.

    I'm not sure what you mean by point of view of the language. After all, language doesn't have a point of view. (You sure seem to know your MacBeth.)
