The reversal of values is one of the main thems in the play. Discuss it making reference to the scene of the three witches and also considering the principles of the time
Macbeth tells the story of a regicide. It is an act against nature which brings chaos, catastrophe and terrible weather condictions. So, it is most significant that the prophecies of the witches take place in a world of thunder and lightning and that Macbeth is mentioned for the first time in a context associated with evil, confusion, the reversal of values and time.
The murder of Duncan brings some consequences that go beyond individual conscience; it involves the fundamental principle of the Elizabethan Age, that is to say, the concept of order implying correspondences between the parts of Creation. Duncan is the symbol of social harmony, order, justice and honesty, the values that shoul inspire human behaviour. For this reason his death is foreshadowed by exceptional negative natural events which mirror the chaos of the social microcosm.
I meant "brings about" ; perhaps I should say: It is an act that brings about chaos ; the catastrophe is associated with darkness and bad weather.
1)Is that ok?
