Act 4 Fate Vs. Free Will
Where are those hags? I must secure my standing as king.
At this point, Macbeth is very anxious. Out of his own free will, he seeks the witches for advice on how to maintain his kingship.
Macbeth: "The castle of Macduff I will surprise, - Seize open Fife, give to th' edge o' th' sword" (4.i.171-172)
The witches give Macbeth new prophecies which give him more insight into his fate.
Malcolm: “Come, go we to the King. Our power is ready; - Our lack is nothing but our leave. Macbeth - Is ripe for shaking,” (4.iii. 277-288)
Macbeth is very angry that none of his offspring will become kings. The prophecies state that only the sons of Banquo will become kings.
Macbeth decides by himself, that he will massacre anyone that is related to Macduff due to the fact that Macduff had left to England.
The audience can slowly see the build up to the downfall of Macbeth. It is fated to happen.
