Macbeth is absolutely littered with figurative language throughout the entire thing. Macbeth is welcoming his guest and lady Macbeth says that our hearts welcome them this is a personification because its giving a human characteristic to a nonliving this. (3.4.8)
in an extremely serious and tragic play like this sometimes little puns like this one are good for breaking tension and relieving a little stress. this is the scene before Macbeth enters the hall for the feast. The pun here is the murder is saying he cut banquos throat then Macbeth says he is very cut throat meaning rutheless.
Thou art the best o' th' cutthroats. (3.4.17)
We can see that over the course of act three how Macbeth's conscience changes and how he is becoming darker when he willing without a second thought orders his best friend and his son to be murdered. I believe that act three is comparable to a bridge as at the beginning he is still guilty about having Duncan killed then he becomes darker and more corrupt towards the middle until it all becomes enough that at the end he is so guilty that he begins to see banquos ghost.
