Edmund can also be very cruel. He mocks Lucy when she describes Narnia on page 28. Edmund runs away from the goodness of Aslan, choosing the White Witch instead. He is lured by the prospect of the wealth and power he hopes the White Witch will provide. Instead of hope and freedom Edmund runs to cruelty and fear.... ... middle of paper ... ...ong influence in the four children’s lives (145, 35-39).
In Macbeth, Lady Macbeth and the witches, succumbing to greed, corrupted Macbeth. Lady Macbeth's actions parallel those of the witches. The witches planted the idea that Macbeth should become king. Lady Macbeth followed through with this idea by pushing Macbeth to kill Duncan. "... a very definition of the weird sisters - calling on them to unsex her to cram her with cruelty from top to toe..." (Bloom 29).

He also goes on to tell her that the Beavers said Aslan will soon return (Lewis, 107). Thus, Edmond is named a traitor by the White Witch. "You have a traitor there, Aslan… Have you forgotten the Deep Magic?" (Lewis, 155).
The witches do with relish, to ‘grieve his [Macbeth’s] heart’ This makes Macbeth determined to alter fate. When the witches went, Lenox tells Macbeth that Macduff has fled to England. As the witches have tricked him, Macbeth does not fear from Macduff and so he damns himself further by plots the murder of Macduff’s family. These tricks by the witches move the plot on and show how important the witches are in the play. As the witches said before Macbeth entered, ‘The charm is firm and good.’ and Macbeth’s fate is sealed.
Macduff kills Macbeth and slays him out of revenge for his family. Macbeth believed he was invincible towards humanity because of the prophecies and apparitions the witches brought forth to him, conversely, he manifested the problems for himself not the witches. Macduff spilling Macbeth’s blood out of revenge communicates the message of appearance vs. reality because Macbeth to himself was indestructible but the reality was he was his own worst enemy and destruction to
The consequences of their actions are initiated by the murder of acquaintances and peers. This puts the country of Scotland and the natural world in a state of turmoil and confusion, and eventually results in the deaths of Macbeth and Lady Macbeth. The introduction of unnatural deeds begins in the play with the prophecies of the three mischievous witches (the weird sisters) that affect Macbeth. Based on the prophecies, the witches envisage that Macbeth will become the next king in Scotland. The third witch predicts, “All hail, Macbeth, that shalt be king hereafter” (1.3.50).
The Tragedy of Macbeth, by William Shakespeare (1564-1616), is an ideal example of people falling victim to evil. In fact, the entire downfall of the main characters, Macbeth and Lady Macbeth, is due to them being lured to evil by three witches. The play is a perfect illustration of how evil can lure someone in then lead to their downfall. In the play, Macbeth started out as an extremely brave and loyal solider. However, after the three witches told him he was to be king one day, he changed completely, being wholly consumed by his greed.
By acting upon these predictions and becoming increasingly dependent, Macbeth murders the King, friends, and a family. Macbeth’s trust of the witches’ second prediction leads him to his downfall because they tell him not to worry about any man who is born out of a woman’s womb. Macbeth’s and Brutus’ naïve nature created opportunities for others to take advantage of the two tragic heroes until their tragic death.
There is a link and connection established between the witches who are evil and Macbeth who is talked about as a noble man by his own king. Therefore we ask the audience ourselves why are such evil women seeking out a great and brave man. Are the witches aware of that Macbeth is someone they can corrupt? It is obvious to us that they are going to try and bring about Macbeth’s downfall-he will be doomed and brought to ruin like a true tragic hero. The witches bring about ruin, evil and destruction and their Witches intentions are malevolent.
The White Witch uses her powers to trick Edmond multiple times. She deceives him into thinking she is not the villain but his friend. In her mind she was the queen and hero of Narnia. People believe her evil tricks represent the devil and how he became the powerful one over the Earth. She ruled Narnia just as the devil is to own the Earth before the savior Jesus comes and in Narnia, Aslan.
