In act one, one of the themes that stood out to me was that unchecked power corrupts. Right after the witches told the prophecy Macbeth demands them say more. He doesn't understand that he already had enough prophecy being told to him and didn't need his life any more screwed up. He said tell me more as if he deserved it, he didn't ask them he demanded of them to tell him.
When Macbeth hears this, he later goes on to say it is a swelling act. Which means that the prophecy has occupies his thoughts, so that he can't think about anything else.
Connotation and Denotation
Macbeth goes onto think to himself that horrible "imaginings", which you can figure means that he is thinking about doing something cruel to the kings so that he can become king himself.
For the tone, you can say anything dark is correct because it is, Macbeth is a very dark and twisted play. But a tone could be suspicious, because throughout the play no one has complete trust in anyone, they are constantly doing tests on each other and killing each other for power.
In this act the connotation is that when the witches tell Macbeth that no one born from a woman can harm him, so Macbeth thinks that is everyone. What he doesn't know is thatMacduff was ripped from his mothers womb, so Macduff can infact ahrm him. And the denotation is that Macduff can kill Macbeth because Macduff was born thorugh Csection.
In the beginning of the play Macbeth gets a prophecy from the witches that he will become King. So, Macbeth kills his nearest friend and the king so that he could become king. Other things in the story impact his dicisions but thats the main gist of it. In the prophecy one of the witches tells Macbetht that none of the people will be able to harm him if he is born from a woman. At the end of the play an enemy ends up killing him because he was infact born from a woman but was torn out of his mothers womb due to a C-section.
