The dagger is a manifestation of Macbeth’s guilt for plotting the murder of the King.
“I see thee still, And on thy blade and dudgeon gouts of blood, Which was not so before. There’s no such thing. It is the bloody business which informs, Thus to mine eyes.” (2.1.45–49) - Macbeth
I heard the owl scream and the crickets cry. Did not you speak? (2.2.15-16) - Lady Macbeth
The imagery of owls screaming and crickets crying is unnatural and tragic which reflects the crime that Macbeth had just committed.
“When shall we three meet again? In thunder, lightning, or in rain? (1.1.1–2) - First Witch
Here, the dark storm that appears with the witches represents their wickedness and chaos that they create.
These bloodstains represent the guilt that Lady Macbeth feels after her brutal actions.
Out, damned spot! Out, I say! . . . who would have thought the old man to have had so much blood in him. (5.1.25–28) - Lady Macbeth
“Look like th' innocent flower, But be the serpent under ’t.” (1.5.56-57) - Lady Macbeth
Serpents are said to be cunning and ambitious which can be reflected in Lady Macbeth’s plans to kill Duncan.
“Who did strike out the light?” (3.3.21) - First Murderer
This can represent the dark (evil) taking over the light (the goodness of Banquo) after he died.
