Good and evil; the fight between heaven and hell.
By Taryn Federici, Miranda Landry, Robyn Evans and Brooke Lennard
In conclusion Macbeth is a story that contains many characters who's lives go from good and pure to evil and full of sin. Macbeth's story as a villain and a tyrant was caused by his bad decisions to listen to evil (witches) and ignore good (Banquo).
This quote is an example of Atmosphere. The porter is referring to the castle and how it is cold because of the events that have occurred, and the evil presence the castle has obtained.
This quote is an example of Atmosphere, due to the fact that the soldier is speaking about "villainies" of nature. Evil insects living in the land that started to swarm him causing him to become increasingly evil. This also foreshadows Macbeth's descent from good to evil
Macbeth's decisions affected those around him in a negative way: causing Lady Macbeth to go mad and causing several vital characters such as Duncan and Banquo to lose their lives.
