Introduction

Shakes spear uses the metaphor of diseases to describe the effect Macbeth has on Scotland how far is Mcduff the antidote. The metaphor of disease occurs towards the end of the play in act 5 scene 3 when Macbeth asks the doctor if he can cure his wife and asks for some, "sweet oblivious antidote" for him. The country is diseased; Macbeth acknowledges this when he asks: "If thou couldst, doctor, cast the water of my land, find her diseas, and parge it to a sound and pristine health". Here Macbeth is asking for a medicine to cure the disease he has put on the country. The disease referred to in the question is the blood murderous regime that Macbeth has carried out since killing Duncan. ...read more.

However, Malcome soon persuades Mcduff he can see this he is a good man."Macduff, this noble passion, wiped the black scruples". Mmcduff is therefore seen an antidote to Macbeth. In the final scene Mac duff confronts Macbeth "I have no words, my voice is in my voice is in my sword; than bloodier villain than terms can fine thee out". Macbeth relishes the witches words no man of woman born can harm him.Mmcduff was delivered by caeserean operation"macduff was from his mothers womb untimely ripped. ...read more.
