By reference to three key scenes, show how Macbeths character changes during the course of the play: act one scene seven, act three scene four and act five scene three
Macbeth is a play about good, evil and the super natural and that any one can become Evil.
Macbeth is a good man who due to ambition and power becomes corrupt. He first starts on his trip to corruption when he meets three witches. Historical note king James was fascinated with the supernatural this is why Shakespeare put in witches ghosts and tricks of the mind.
Even at right at the beginning they seem to know who Macbeth is and where and when they shall meet him. Right as they leave they say is piece of speech which tells you about them and their point of view.
"Fair is foul, and foul is fair,"
This shows how they think to them justice and goodness is bad and bad things that happen like treason murder and theft to them are good. This is a linguistic inversion, which shows they are evil.
The witch's scene at the beginning is fairly short but very important
