Transcript of Macbeth Act 3 Scene 5

So What does this mean??? Eventually... Hecate does take over and have the lead in the affair and she commands them to all meet in the morning, when Macbeth will come to know his destiny. She will create more illusions to add to his confusion, and instill in him a false hope that he might keep the crown. Basically..... This is a transitioning scene, starring the three witches and their leader Hecate. The three witches meet in a open place this time with Hecate, the goddess of
witches. Hecate goes into a rhyming speech that sounds a bit like a nursery rhyme. Repeating Themes and Imagery Hecate, the classical goddess, who represents the spirit of ancient witchcraft,
She is a strong female spirit, whose forceful instructions to the Witches reflect the language of Lady Macbeth to her husband.
Hecate wants power and also wants to keep the power she already has. This is just like Lady Macbeth and how she wants Macbeth to be king, so she can have power.

Although this scene seems unnecessary the scene makes you wonder Is Macbeth entirely the blame for his downfall? In Hecate's opinion, he is. She tells the Witches that Macbeth "loves for his own ends"
Hecate tells the witches that Macbeth thinks he is greater than fate and that will be his destruction. Macbeth
