Many critics hold that the imagery in Macbeth is more rich and dramatic than that of any other of Shakespeare’s plays.

The Witches In Macbeth The witches could foretell the future, they can add temptation, and influence Macbeth, but they could not control his destiny.

However, in my opinion, the only characters who really profited from and got what they wanted out of the whole situation were the witches.

He is one of those people who gravitates to power and gets as close to it as possible so that he can feel it and share it as much as possible. Once Macbeth is king, then Lennox is around him all the time, too. At the banquet when Macbeth saw Banquo's ghost, he was the one to invite Macbeth to sit next to him.
