All hail Macbeth thane of Cawdor. All hail Macbeth thane of Glamis. All hail Macbeth who shall be hereafter
Why do you dress me in borrowed robes
This quote tells us that Macbeth will be thane of Cawdor. He is already thane of Glamis and the witches already know that, but Macbeth has never seen or spoken to the witches. He is asking himself how do they know that, who are they, what do they mean I will be thane of Cawdor. He is a bit confused and so is the reader. This also has an effect on the reader because the reader is also asking themselves what are they doing.
Do you not hope your children shall be king
Why do you dress me in borrowed robes. Macbeth is asking Banquo this because Macbeth he is really confused because the thane of Cawdor lives and only the thane is allowed to wear robes.But then they give him the robes and jewelry that the thane was wearing and has giving them to Macbeth. The reader and Macbeth would be thinking the witches were telling the truth, how do they know what was going to happen.
Somebody has told Macbeth this quote. At this moment Macbeth is shocked. Macbeth is shocked because he has been told his children will, be king one day. He does not even have children yet. Us readers and Macbeth would be thinking this is a bit strange asking somebody your children shall be kings but Macbeth does not have children.
I have added these three quotes because I think they make the reader think really hard about what some of the characters are saying. I have also picked these three quotes because they are very interesting as well.
